Time Machine malfunction

Post by synthcube » Wed Sep 23, 2020 11:26 am

Remember 'Honey I Shrunk the Kids?'

Seems like every time we run something through the Blacet Time Machine, it ends up coming out smaller!! :hyper: :hyper:

stay tuned for more details :hyper: :hyper:

Depending on how you tweak the compander circuit you can get different results.

I believe the post is "hinting at" an SMD version in (Euro? 4U?)

Interesting. Which BBD? There's a certain amount of opinion that the low voltage BBDs being made these days kind of suck due to there not being enough of a difference between noise floor and signal. I'm just going by comments I've heard, I am not a doctor.

The original used MN3005, perhaps emelgil can clue us in to what he's using now?

we're trying both he NOS MN3005 (ultra hard to find and $$$) and also the Xvive MN3005 and looking for notable differences, if any

Cool!

I've never been able to tell the difference between NOS and Xvive in my time machine.

I prefer the original Blacet aesthetic, I think it's a little silly to change it, plus with a 15hp panel the same pcb's could then be built for frac too. But I guess that's a McMansion in euro?

Anybody has been questioning why Moog don't use the Xvive in a new batch MF-104M...?

I’ve not A/B’d them with originals, but the Xvive ICs sound great in the Oakley ADR30 delay I built.

They've discontinued all of the Moogerfoogers.

You apparently have the “Uncle Rico” version, sorry, first thing that I thought of when I read the title of this thread.

Back maybe 10-15 years ago I bought a stash of original MN3005's for things that might come up, when they first started getting scarce. I think it was at the urging of Jurgen Haible. I believe synthcube also has a large stash of them.
