@hillexed well, each one of them can be a sine oscillator, and they can both be AM'd and FM'd at audio rates, so you can make a heck of a complex oscillator !

Update with all viable info.


I'm running from a roommate who turned dangerous in the last 48 hours. I found a place, but it will be $800 to move in. They've thankfully prorated the rent and everything. But, you know, security deposits.

Idk if I'm gonna get my security back from my current living situation, because, you know.

Please help if you can! Ive already gotten some help and I'm so grateful!

@LunaDragofelis the former unfortunately. would be much cooler to have problems with the latter

In this case it's just that I have to pay $1500 to replace a DC motor and a capacitor 😩

@prin holy shit that's such a good idea! I'm gonna rearrange stuff to do that I think

And, thank you!

... huh. some simple arithmetic says that this instrument has around 154 billion distinct modes, prior to patching, and disregarding the many althernate firmwares that are available

that's pretty fucking wild

@dried Yeah! My coworker helped me out with that and Frames, and a few others. I'm so excited.

does anybody want to start a thread for cute forums/mailing lists? could be nice :vort_love:

The best part of Eurorack is that it teaches you just how wacky things can get with two filters and an oscillator - which is fundamentally a necessary intuition if you're going to do any kind of analog electronics.

Oh, also worth mentioning Ripples! It's my favorite filter of all time, and I'm going to have _both_ v1 and v2. Ripples is a gorgeous synth all by itself - you can self-patch FM, play it like an oscillator, and more - but with two of them and a phase rotator in Kamieniec, I'm going to have tons of fun just building self-playing all-analog patches.

@ginsterbusch Heh. Yeah, it's a bit of a rabbit hole.

On a basic level, here's the gist: there's a brilliant woman named Emilie Gillet who makes gorgeous aluminum-panel instrument modules for the Eurorack electronic musical instrument standard. I love her work, and she's leaving the industry, so I want to build my dream system, using mostly her instruments, before they're impossible to get.

From her, I'm getting composition tools, sound sources, effects modules, and some utility tools; I'm combining that with some very powerful and unique instrument modules from other manufacturers to make a single, workable system in a box about half a meter wide and a third of a meter tall.

@lmorchard will do! Here's what it looks like now, with just what I managed to get locally.

It's a pretty "modey" system; Batumi, Clouds, Rings, Plaits, and Braids are all very much N-in-1 modules, which means that it's sort of meta-modular. Each patch will involve selecting which instruments I want to use, both by patching and by setting modules' modes.

Lots of fun secrets hidden in these modules, too, like Kamieniec's built-in LFO stage which can just be used as a normal LFO.

people from qoto.org stopy trying to follow me challenge

I am pleased to inform you that in one week from today I will have my dream Eurorack system almost completely assembled

It's a "Mostly Mutable" system, which I've been trying to put together since forever ago. Now that Emilie is getting out of the game, I've decided it's now or never, so I've sourced 208hp (in two rows) of Mutable and XAOC gear.

It'll be sequenced by Marbles and Frames, modulated by Peaks, Tides, and Batumi (with Poti), voiced by Plaits, Braids, and Rings, and effected by Beads, Clouds*, and Kamieniec, with Maths, O/A/x2, and Out v3 assisting with various functions.

This is a big milestone for me, because I sold off _all_ my Mutable modules and most of my modular gear when my father died last year. I lost my ability to create and blamed it on my gear when, well, there's a much more obvious reason.

But I'm back, baby!

@jaycie I started in 2013, ish, but only got really serious about it halfway through college. I regret having so little documentation of my pre-transition life, but oh well.
