i have the opportunity of including two earthseas in a rig, it just seems to speak to the way i construct sounds more so than my perception of the White Whale. Am i correct in assuming that i can get similar functionality out of the ansible in regards to white whale operations?
Like removing the white whale for two earth seas, my case if pretty much full so i 6hp is precious space now so if i can use ansible for white whale duties when needed so to speak
thank goodness we can compare notes. RIght now, i have Earth1 talking to IFM Denum->chronoblob and sparkles from just friends tweaking the ieaskul insanities. I am glad you found one. I’m told the Legacy modules are disappearing
Earthsea was my first Monome module but I feel like I maybe should have started with WW. It just didn’t function exactly how I thought it would with the rest of my system. I’m thinking that incorporating a TT may be what I need to open it up (and I want a TT anyway ). I really just need to spend more time with it I guess.
I posted a suggestion in the other Earthsea thread about an idea I had: a new FW that tailors the ES to be a playable shift register. This is probably already possible but a few tweaks would make it smoother to operate and more intuitive.
You need to add up the total usage of your +5v rail from all the other connected modules. If you are approaching 80% or so of the spec’d output when you include the ES (or any Monome module), you may consider upgrading your PSU. Keep in mind that if you are running multiple Monome modules, you do not need to include the full 600ma of the spec’d Monome unless you are running more than one Grids at a time.
EDIT: Also, you may consider running a SWITCH module anyway. Some PSUs get noisy with the Grids attached and LEDs on. Some don’t. YMMV.
At the moment, this Intellijel 4U/104 case has six Mannequins modules, the Ansible, and just a few 1U modules. I checked the specs on the Mannequins modules and there is no spec at all for the +5V bus, so can I assume that that means they consume no power on that bus?
Sorry if that’s a Modular 101 question.
Great note about the PSUs and noise. I have sometimes noticed a faint high pitched whine/hiss, that sometimes seems to switch when I change config modes.
All of this will eventually end up in a forthcoming -isms case, assuming they all fit.
