Do you have a list of all your gear at the moment? I'm
interested as you seem to have been picking up a few bits.

Ain't got the dough at the mo but I've been looking at a
squarepusher type of setup. Akai s6000, Eventide FX, akg
spring reverb...

For the Eventide h3000 series can be upgraded to have all
the presets. The dsp4500 has all the 4000 series presets and
the h8000 looks good with the remote. I'm shit at
programming custom patches so the h3000 is where im looking
at first.

There's a doepfer club in Bristol called emis music that
sells monster cases for cheap. You can get a plain wooden
eurorack case for 549 which stores 6 rows of eurorack.

Teisco 60f
lush pwm single vco monosynth, can find these for £350-400

Roland mpu 101
midi cv gate, probably not worth the money, you can get
eurorack ones for cheaper these days.

Eurorack

Akai vx 600 broken
the volume pot is broken, needs replacing, causes distortion
making the synth unusable.
all the pads on this album were made with it

Atari ste 520 4mb ram with satandisk and sm124 monitor
i use a piece of sequencing software called sequencer plus
one, it can load midi files. very useful for programming on
the laptop as a midi file then copying over to the atari st
to get the tight midi timing and sync.

havent used this much yet,the presets are awesome,needs a
new battery for custom presets, has to be programmed with a

basically a 4op fm synth with pitch env and simple fx. the

also been looking at the yamaha fs1r, they sell for about
£600 if you knock them down

it's a 4 part multitimbral synth used by squarepusher on go
plastic, it has 8 formant filters and 8 op fm synthesis but
you need to program it with an external programmer to get
the most out of it

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joJzReGLETs

i think he used it for the acid line on this track, i wish
you obelisk
im tempted to stick it on my list but im probably not
talented enough to get the most out of it, i think i might
as well use my yamaha ys100 and try to get used to fm
synthesis before messing with formant synthesis

more bcos of hype. just found one for 650 euro (which is

there are also new fm synths popping up like this one

I ummed and ahhed about it for years but I have 4 or 5 boxes
with CV on them now and it's an obvious extension of
max/bitwig so I just thought fuck it, especially as I have
the organelle and can transfer some of my max sequencers to
pd and work completely outside the computer.

i think you did a good job with your modular rack. lots of
modulation possibilities at a pretty good price. i hope you
will post some snippets of what you will do with the thru
zero osc. im interested. i also didn't know about the milky
way module. a small stereo effect with modulation
possibilities? pretty ace!

(I just typed up a big thing and then zilty shitted it. 2nd
attempt:)

Hello, gentlemen. If I may join in...

Umbro, did you build all those GSMN modules yourself? Or
what attracted you to the brand? Just curious. How do you
like the Doepfer VC Phase Shifter? Do you use that as an FX
or to modulate CV? Both? Neither?

Indie, that looks like a great and fun starter (finisher?)
eurorack. I love the sound of the Wasp filter, but
apparently it's got a habit of randomly frying one if its
IC's. It's an inherently unstable circuit, wouldn't you
know... So I've been too afraid to buy one. Do you have the
Milky Way module already? Seemed like those new endorphines
modules were just announced. Very interested in the FX types
in that and how they sound.

Here's my thing, if anyone's interested LAZY_TITLE. The
only discrepancies are that I don't own the 2hp Freez,
haven't built my DIY Arcade yet, and have a Loafers for LFO
rather than the 4ms QPLFO (which I eventually intend to pair
with the QCD). I'm open to any suggestions for better CV
modulation/mangling stuff. I've nearly bought like 4
different "Random" modules but I think perhaps I'm less
interested in random than I am in complex but predictable
waveshapes/envelopes. Dunno... I'm also endlessly annoyed by
the current 2hp gap in my case. Considering pulling the EOS
and replacing it with something in 4hp. Thoughts?

A guy from muffwiggler built 8 modules for me for 600 euros.
It was an open source thing but the developer dumped it and
has gone commercial again with the brand equinox. His VCO
and lowpass VCF are good and cheap. I gave the gmsn env a
1/5 on modular grid and the designer was insulted, instead
of changing the design he kept it as is. "It takes few mad
for genius." The GMSN sequencer and quantizer are amazing.
Sadly I didn't get the quantizer module. I've got GMSN down
in my watch list on ebay,I'm especially looking out for the
quantiser. Somebody offered me a GMSN filter recently on
modular grid but I didn't know how to reply to him. I bought
two other GMSN modules off of ebay, one was an older type
VCO done discretely, it's hard to tune because it doesn't
have a fine tune knob. Paid about £50 from a guy in Poland.
And a basic LFO with tri and square outputs.Paid £35 ish
from a guy in uk.

The phase shifter is good when you use it with its own LFO.
I use the two bandpass filters to get a similar effect. I
just use the phaser on audio signals. Never thought to use
it on cv, not sure what would happen.

https://umbromaniii.bandcamp.com/album/merchant-navy-acid

On this album there's a monophonic line on each track coming
from the timo rozendal vco (Very beautiful pwm) going
through either the phaser or the two band pass vcfs.

The milky way arrives in two weeks, that and the second
passive mult are replacing the dreadbox echo that was in
that spot. I was in two minds about the wasp but as it's a
cheaper module and the box is to supplement a moog I thought
it'd be good to add a bit of colour.

Me: You meant EON, not EOS.

Umbro: Oh, I am so very far from a genius. I don't know
whether the VC Phaser is even dc-coupled (can process CV)
but I'm just trying to keep an open mind as people on
Muffwiggler repeatedly remind me how narrow my imagination
is when deciding what to patch to what... (There are
supposedly no limits to the experimentation with dc-coupled
modules.) Figured you might be using the phaser in some
weird way I wouldn't expect. I enjoyed your write-up on the
GMSN modules; got a chuckle out of seeing that the rating on
the Env is still 1/5 on modular grid with your 1 vote. I do
think those Equinox modules sound very good, if a bit big
and empty on the panel space.

DADONCK: I've actually got (rudimentary) S&H covered by the
Neutron, so I was thinking more of smooth random rather than
stepped, or "complex" random like Mutable Marbles or SSF
Ultra Random Analog. But I'm having a hard time
understanding what is supposed to be different about smooth
random than just slewing the rate of change on a stepped S&H
module... (see Umbro, I'm pretty much a noob). And no matter
how many times I look at the SSF U.R.A. I never can tell
what anything is or does.

Indie: Hopefully I didn't take the wind out of your sails on
the Wasp. With any luck yours will be worry-free. I bet it
sounds sweet on the Moog! Would you post an update when you
get the Milky Way to let us know your thoughts?
