Topic: Variable response offsets?
Replies: 23

But an "offset" is simply adding a continuous DC voltage to any signal. It is neither exponential nor linear. It's just an unchanging voltage, with no 'response curve'. While your statement taken alone is true, it's clear from the title of this thread that an exponentially applied offset was the re...

yes but specifically the higher end stuff without the residue.
There is a light green type painters tape also with no-residue which may have higher contrast making labels easier to read than the dark blue.

Any expo VCA can apply an exponential offset. An expo EG can be used to control a linear VCA for exponential offset. An audio mixer makes an expo offset available related to its audio taper pot. Many ways to patch in an expo offset.

Flow generally bottom to top, and left to right. Within this arrangement set-and-forget modules are farther away. Those actively used are closer. Position of a module which is actively played has higher priority for useability placement than enforcing arbitrary forced division by voice, system or mo...

- MLCCs have low ESR which is good, but may also cause problems (for example if the power supply is a DC-DC converter). can you elaborate on that? Low esr means higher inrush current. Ohms law. Higher inrush current spike can confuse or exceed the ability of the DC-DC converter to compensate. Some ...

Let's simplify your questions. Does gain staging have an effect? Do amplifiers distort at higher levels? Do different amplifiers distort in different ways, even at normal levels? Does signal input level to a filter affect its response? Yes to all. Next question. Can any or all of these be used inten...

The threaded core pull-out failure mode JLR shared and showed for the older Flight and erthenvar jacks is in addition to the square boss jack type problems. These just plain miss the mark.

It happens a lot with knurled nuts - the hex type don't loosen at all. I wonder how the shape of the nut could affect the probability it would get loose? :despair: The hex shape with center hole will hold a flat plane better than the ring area of the knurled type. In addition to the larger diameter...
