Re: New to Eurorack, what are 'must haves'

I am in the middle of working on a Thomas Henry SN Voice. Lots of panel wiring. It's kinda fun to do some of these older kits every once in a while. Component PCBs are so easy I sometimes feel guilty...like it's not even true DIY. I can't wait to finish this one. I had been hoping for a kit for a lo...

Re: New to Eurorack, what are 'must haves'

Well the simple quantizer is apparently not that accurate. The dual nice quantizer is more accurate.

This is another option to cram more in: http://modularoverkill.blogspot.com/201 ... -case.html

Those gator cases look way too heavy duty and pretty for me.

Re: New to Eurorack, what are 'must haves'

Buy some 6u rails and some nuts and bolts and throw it in this:

I have two and they work great and you can store other stuff under and on top.

Re: New to Eurorack, what are 'must haves'

As someone that went diy euro crazy last year I can recommend the following kits/brands. Of course not all are must haves, but they are all very nice, quality modules. -Frequency Central UK: Rick makes some great analog filters modeled after Roland and Moog as well as some nice digital modules such ...

Re: I don't understand the demand for monosynths?

To the original poster. I have aquired at least 4 hybrid polys over the last year and I am still more inspired by my Microbrute. I like the polys becasue I find them intersting on a few different levels and they are so damn cheap, but to be honest I am not very good at playing keys. With the mono I ...

Re: Is the ms20 mini a good entry point into modular synthes

I've been eying the brutes too for a bit, how do you think they're a better choice? As I said I think the ms-20 is awesome. But if your goal is to integrate it into a modular to play or sequence, the brutes are easier as no conversion is necessesary for the pitch scaling. Of course they are all so ...

Re: Is the ms20 mini a good entry point into modular synthes

As awesome as the MS-20 is, I don't think it is a good starting point for modular. I would say the Microbrute is the better option. It is much cheaper and easier to integrate in to a Eurorack system. I had the MS-20 and currently have the Microbrute. The Minibrute is an option to.

Re: Desktop fm synth

The PreenFM is nice. The VST editor makes things easier as well. I might sell mine and build the 2. Although I still can highly recomend the PreenFM. If you are in the U.S. and would like to look into picking one up PM me. I don't have any experience with Yamaha FM syths, but the PreemFM can load DX...

Re: Strangest thing you ever found inside a synth

You guys are really making me NOT want to open my DW8000. Some guy was storing it in his garage for at least a few years. Nothing has come crawling out yet...

In my SK50D I found some dead spiders and lots of webs. I think there were some leaves in there as well.

I am still trying to figure out if my sk50D is hz/volt or v/oct. Anyone know for sure?

Re: Korg MS-20 Mini

That's odd, the CS synths should all have that Hz/Oct thing Korg used. Maybe they got the scaling wrong in your MS20, or your CS15 is uncalibrated and send out the wrong frequencies. I wonder what my Yamaha SK50D uses. It might be cool to play around with that... I am looking forward to the Harvest...
