Re: EuroRack Module Shopping & Comparison

There's this: http://www.modularplanner.co.uk/

Still sorted by manufacturer, but probably a little easier to sift through than the entire Analogue Haven site. Also handy for planning out what you can fit in a case.

Re: External arpeggiator?

you want one. I believe you're right about that. ;) Would you say the surface mount stuff is minimal enough to be do-able by someone with only normal, through-hole soldering experience? Its way easier than you think, I actually prefer it to through hole since it goes faster and there is no lead cut...

Re: External arpeggiator?

The new mutable instruments midipal does this as well Is this available yet? Found the manual here: http://mutable-instruments.net/midipal/manual but couldn't find any ordering info. It is a hardware device, right? Answered my own questions with a bit more research. Seems it's slated to be availabl...

Re: New Moog lunchbox format

I think its funny that people think its a modular device so far as wondering where the CV inputs are... I realize it's not a modular, and is aimed at a different crowd. But, they do have CV on the Foogers, which I see more often marketed (note I said marketed, not necessarily designed) to guitarist...

Re: New Moog lunchbox format

So, no CV on this thing, or am I missing it?

Guess that makes sense as it seems to be aimed squarely at the non-synth crowd.

Re: Need some help identifying electronic components (Vox Or

There are lots of charts around for identifying capacitor codes. I find this one to be pretty well laid out and helpful: http://www.hamradio.cc/electronics/capa ... _chart.php

Re: Conductive paint, contact repair, etc.

What dedication ! Those switches are about 30-cents from Mouser. The time and effort it takes to unsolder and resolder one must be only a fraction of what it takes to dissassemble repair and re-assemble one. IMHO. It's not quite as crazy as it sounds, I swear. :lol: I ordered a bunch of replacement...

Re: Conductive paint, contact repair, etc.

Actually, the tact switches I fixed were pretty similar to that one. There was a little metal dome inside the switch, and it was the underside of that which I coated with the pen. Getting it all back together was the tricky part. Mostly trying to get those little plastic rivet-like bits to go back t...

Re: Conductive paint, contact repair, etc.

I used that very same Circuit Writer pen to fix some dodgy tact switches (using pretty much the same method Hybrid described). And I'm pretty sure they sell them at Radio Shack, in case you don't feel like waiting for one to come in the mail.

Re: Formant/Vocal filter?

If that's what you're after, the Boss VF-1 has that same effect inside (not to mention several others) for a lot less money.

Re: Virus C - Robot Voices

If you don't mind building your patches on the computer, the Nord Micro Modular will give you a great, classic-sounding vocoder (and a whole lot more) in a very compact package (about the size of a VHS tape, provided you're old enough to remember those ;) ).
