I’d rather have more ideas shared in one place than a lot of fragmented topics, myself. 4U 104hp is a lot more constrained than a 6U 208hp case.
Is my Structure EP-96 allowed to play?
Can’t upload current state of the case because my phone does not love Modulargrid
- touch/tactile input
- granular delay reverb?
- Squiggles / LFO / noises
- Dusty noises
- Functions / oscillations
- Oscillations / functions / VCAs
- Filter / mixing / hair
- Sequencer / touch control / CV memory
- Pulses / bouncing balls
@soggybag I guess broadly speaking this fits the System Cartesian model, with some “redundancy” between Just Friends and either Maths or the Mangroves (although, like, in actual fact no redundancy).
- uhhh, everything you can dream up / sequencer
- sequencer (well, with LFOs if I get an Arc)
- pure bliss
- calculus class, also envelopes
- “spice in your modular melange” / meta-modulation
- persistence / futurenows / loopers / delays / samplers
Would love ergonomics suggestions, though! currently I’ve got it as below, which works really well, the Clouds provides a good amount of cushion room for playing w/ W/. I suspect that the LxD would do so as well.
You could free up some hp with a uclouds…
ergonomics is brutal but i’ve definitely but X in “location” as a blocker for Y. when i rack Elements is a like a big field between interface components.
of course i only know what’s going to be a problem after a playable patch is together
ergonomics thing you might want to try: i flipped my w/s upside down and they feel far more playable - something about key presses with my index/middle/ring fingers and flicking the toggle with my thumb/index really opens it up for me.
ooooh, thanks for the tip! I can see that being more comfortable
Ok pals, some suggestions would be welcome! I was planning on an 84hp setup, but a 104hp Intellijel case came up at a good price so I grabbed it. I have 17hp left in this sketch, what would you add? More VCAs? Fixed filter bank? Envelopes? Etc?
Example of current setup (below image minus VCS, A-198, A-136, and using A-118 instead of Noise Tools): https://my.pcloud.com/publink/show?code=XZcevs7Zkbje9cXTUrk5AltEmyp2gjAMLwKV
@philmaguire You might consider a dual low-pass gate, for some percussive options, and yes more VCAs and envelopes would give a lot more flexibility. Envelopes can also be LFOs of course. I would also miss delay, something that can be CV’d for more fun, perhaps a Chronoblob or something small…
How’s the nerdseq working out? I have listed after one forever. But cannot justify the expense so settled on a deal for squarp Hermod as my brain.
I’m a staunch 84hp supporter. It always reminds of me of the TV show Breaking Bad when Walter tries to buy a gun and the dealer recommends a low-capacity .38 revolver:
“If you can’t get it done with five, then you’re into spray and pray, in which case I wouldn’t count on another six closing the deal.”
If you can’t get it done with 84hp, I wouldn’t count on another 20 closing the deal.
So: blind panels m8!
omg those sliders are great, do it
feeling the 84 comment. I’ve had a 4u 104hp case with at least 20hp empty for over a year now. no hurry to fill it and have not allowed myself to ’explore the market’ like I did when I initially planned/filled it.
Leave it empty for a while until you know what you want/need, maybe make a blank with some random cardboard or whatever. Just my 2 cents, but if you’ve never used the modules before it’s likely you’ll find some new needs once you start playing.
