basic dumb Q: playing audio files easily on iOS

So iTunes is an unusable mess on iOS, and I am trying to incorporate spoken word stuff into a set I am doing and I really just want to play a file and NOT have it auto repeat, or auto skip to the next track, or something. What's a dead simple solution here? Trying to use iTunes had me about throwing...

Deciding between Erica's Black VCO & Black Wavetable VCO

What are the pros/cons? Wavetable VCO seems to have more possibilities off the bat, Black VCO plus the expander seems to be a mean, focused thing. I'm torn. What are your thoughts?

Very small portable mixer/send thing?

Hi guys. Dumb question! I have a very very small setup I am going to take to a place to play: it's essentially an 0-Coast and a couple of guitar pedals. The way I work at home is I have an 8-channel EPM8 mixer and the 0-Coast goes into channel one, which goes to the pedals via send, then returned ba...

excellent! Wish I had thought of this element when i bought the iConnect.

UM-ONE works just fine, thanks.

my USB Mio doesn't play nice w/ my Quadra Thru

I have a USB Mio from iConnect, but it won't power my Quadra Thru (from MIDI Solutions) which makes me super sad. What's a nice solution for a USB MIDI splitter to 4 or 8 channels that I can use w/ my DAW?

n00b: mixer inserts to DAW?

Hey guys, total noob here, but I have a nice Soundcraft EPM8 that I'm fond of and perusing the internet I see that some folks use the channel inserts to bounce the sound out to a recorder, but I don't know how this setup works given that, at least for my, my Scarlett interface does not return the si...

PICO Input, guitar, DI box: I'm dumb!

Help me be less dumb. I have a PICO Input module. I have a guitar. I take a standard 1/4" TRS patch cable and rut into a 1/8" TRS converter and I put that 1/8" TRS converter into the PICO and turn it up and... it works! Now, I run the guitar into a DI box, then out from there via XLR with a 1/4" TRS...

n00b: iPhone audio into Mother-32 EXT AUDIO input

So, this doesn't work without something else because, I think-- tell me I am wrong?-- that the EXT AUDIO jack expects modular level which is +/- 10V and the iPhone outputs something... far less? What's a quick/dirty way of amplifying that signal to run it into Clouds, or the EXT AUDIO jack on the M3...

Nothing else that has 1/4" inputs like the IJ?

n00b question: If have a guitar through a DI box out with a 1/4" TRS, I assume I need a 1/8" TRS converter input for a Pico Input, and a 1/8" TS input would NOT work?

audio input half of the intellijel Audio Interface II

The input portion of this module is perfect --- https://intellijel.com/eurorack-modules ... erface-ii/ -- but I don't want the output side as I already have a uJack.

What are some stupid simple line input modules? My PO12 is itching to bounce into Clouds.

Synths + DI Box?

Is there any benefit or gain from running an outboard synth through a DI box? Preliminary research seems to indicate "nope" but I wanted some MWers takes.

Mixers: Mackie 802VLZ4 vs Soundcraft EPM8? (or even the Onyx

Can anyone speak to this comparison? The EPM8 is $50 more, but the mixers seem so close in features. Would be interested in opinions...

Also kind of looking at the Onyx series of stuff from Mackie.

Tuning your oscillators?

I have three voices in my rack and I'd like to know how you guys go about tuning. Right now I have Ableton live with a couple of audio channels and the tuner utility on each, and I run the modular into the DAW and get it where I want it. Which, works, but it's kind of a pain in the ass. Is there a m...

I always seem to hear folks saying passive mults are bad for setting pitch b/c of degradation of signal, but I'm wondering how well they work for LFOs?

What are some of the useful limits of passive mults?
