Re: What's up with GenoQs other than its pricetag?

Very cool. Thanks for the explanations. I will check out the octopus manual and begin organizing my plans to rob a bank later this week :)

BTW, I do have modular and digital (Mono and MD) hardware.

What's up with GenoQs other than its pricetag?

OK, so I've just been reading about the Genoqs sequencer and I can't help but wonder that it must be one h**l of a sequencer for $2k-3.5k - does it make espresso or something? Please, will someone explain why it's do expensive and why it's so great? I mean I could seriously expand my doepfer rig for...

EMS Synthi A - Worth it or invest in something more modern?

How unique is the Synthi A? Does it sound really great or is it just a novelty collectors item? From what I understand it is somewhat limited. I have an opportunity to purchase one for the same price as a basic Buchla system - just not sure when this opportunity will come around again. I'm in a toss...

Re: Does this SEM module seem reasonably priced?

Well, I don't have 3k for the 2 voice, and I don't really need another keyboard. I've been looking at the unpowered models and it seems like it might be a big deal making them "standalone".

Does the 1080 and 1180 make a huge difference? The owner doesn't know which model this one is.

Sequencing with Doepfer A-100

Hi there, I have the A-100 clk dividerA-160 and sequencer A-161. Just curious, what is the best way to modulate the pitch of each step? Is there a CV module that I need to get? I want to create melodic phrases so that each note has a different pitch. Should I maybe get the A-155 Analog trigger seque...

Trigger vrs. Gate with Doepfer

Howdy folks! I just got a doepfer a-100 system and I'm spending a lot of time learning to use it. One thing they don't make too clear is the difference between a trigger and gate. for instance, i can patch either trigger or gate outputs to a ADSR and it has a similar effect, although I guess the gat...

Fact Check : 1st drum machine with "pads"?

I'm writing an article and just want to make sure:

Is the first drum machine with "pads" the LM-1? It seems like it's the first machine out there with dedicated "pads" for individual drum triggering.

there used to be a drum machine muesum that was online only but I dont think its around anymore. It was based out of San Francisco. I think you should do a book with lots of color pictures and then a DVD or CD that has a examples or two of what they sound like. Take a year or two to do all the rese...

Rare Drum Machine Museum

Hi, I have a friend who has recently come into a lot of $$ and he wants to open a drum machine "museum" for the public/education etc. Thing is, he doesn't really know a lot about gear/electronics etc, so he's tapped me to help him out. He's really just in love with the concept of it. Anyway, I alrea...

Cool. I'll try to rig one of those up this weekend. Thanks a bunch!

As far as my other question: the difference between eurorack and frakrack - can they be patched together conveniently?

Gate systems are also different. Some short to ground (eg Moog's old S-Trig, also used on Yamaha and Korg) and some are positive going (eg your Doepfer). This is a problem for me because I want to use the Doepfer's ADSR. Is there a workaround or something that will change the polarity of the GATE s...

How do I make sure CVs are compatible between synths?

Hi, I have a doepfer modular and I also have a KORG MS-20. Can I patch one into the other's CV or will it explode and melt? What about a minimoog? How can I make sure that the CVs are compatible? The outputs on the MS-20 are clearly labeled -5V-+5V. The doepfer is 12V I think? So I guess it's not a ...
