How do you find the Xvive ones? I found they were too fast - didn't have the tail that Perkin/Exelitas ones had, so not good for my usage. I bought direct from Xvive & they weren't very good with communication to be honest. The Xvive 5C3/2s are okay. That's about all I can say right now. A few of t...

another issue is : i have the r modules racked by my serge and i i have to use every scaler and amplifier i have to get cv high enough to fire the r modules inputs. The current RK4s were modified with a trimpot internally to adjust the CV gain. The RK7 will also have a trimpot. The RK3/R53 carrier ...

this thread reminds me of an old Jim Williams book, where he built a simple low-distortion Wien bridge oscillator from one opamp and a small incandescent bulb. Then decided he wanted lower distortion, so ended up with 4 opamps and a Vactrol instead. Then he went into designing a voltage-to-frequency...

Thanks to all for weighing in. It is good to have this info in one place. I am going to stick with RS format. Their larger power supply might maybe BARELY run two of our 4u modules, but is still not recommended. If someone can't build up their own adequate power supply I'll custom modify an RS boat ...

Yeah, it's a toughie. All I'll say is that 4U is not just Serge and it's only R*S (and Serge) who've been following the old boat-driven Serge standards. There's now a growing ecosystem of 4U manufactuers who follow LW standards (Stroh, Hale, Slightly Nasty, Clee, and LW, of course) who certainly do...

Cinch-Jones, the flat bladed rectangular ones like you will find on the back of a Minimoog, VCS3 or ARP 2600. And are best left there.

PS in case you're wondering: we used AW6s because they had high gain and were dirt cheap and easy to get. They also have much higher signal distortion than AU6s. I tested pentodes for Vacuum Tube Valley magazine long ago. (LONG ago, like 1994). Should you be insane enough to wish to build a low-dist...
