Anyone got any tips for tuning Deerhorn? I understand that one knob is a coarse tune for both oscillators, but then the individual fine tune knobs change both oscillators in opposite directions, so it’s quite fiddly to dial in consonant pitches.
there’s some plumbutter on this one as well as other banana synths
I got one of those LiPo car jumpstart batteries. It does 12V output and can power all my Mobenthy modules. I had this patch running for a hour and the charge indicator didn’t drop from when I turned it on. So I’m expecting infinity playing time
Downside of the battery is despite also doing 5V @ 2.1 amps it can only do one output voltage type at once. So Norns runs off it’s own battery in this picture.
guess you need a “module” with LM78xx and USB port
the most lols of DC <=> DC
this was really really good
hey thanks! <3
here’s another track I forgot to add, also w plumbutter
Has anyone here built the Solar Sounders? https://econtact.ca/18_3/blasser_solarsounder.html
I’m tempted to try but probably with neither solar panel nor speaker just probably some kind of power starve…? and jack outputs.
I built those thee a few weeks ago with the same intentions… still waiting for the NJM2073 to arrive (I ordered them from aliexpress). They should work flawlessly with a 9V battery, I’ll report back when mines are alive
great, thanks Ahh yeah I’ll need some of those too, i don’t think I have. Wonder if I could figure out how to replace it with an LM386
should link my Lil Sidrassi build here too: //// pictures ////
I got my Mobenthy wine box rig battery powered along with the rest of this stuff. It’s the primary input source for mlr and Aleph delay lines. Looking forward to doing some videos.
this is a very pretty little rig. Look forward to hearing it.
yes please this is a great looking setup
Here’s another Ciat album I just released - I posted in the releases section for anyone that missed it
I’m just wondering if anyone here is using Lorre-mill gear with their plumbutter 2?
Can they safely cross patch?
I’ll probably scope out the outputs just to be safe, but figured that it doesn’t hurt to ask here.
Not my experiance but I’ve seen warnings about not to send CV with too high peak voltages to the inputs of Double Knot. Not sure how hot is CL chain or if it is a problem with Plumbutter at all.
I patch both of mine (DK and Mosstone) with the Coco and Sidrax and have had no issues (make sure you run ground cable between all). I know that the Lorre Mill boxes can’t take negative voltages (0 - +8) and I’ve read that you should never patch the brown jacks from the Plumbutter. Best bet would likely be to email Will and run it by him.
EDIT - FYI there’s a lot of good info in this thread - The Double Knot - synth
I blew a transistor of the sequencer on my DK when I paired it with the Plumbutter (and yes I avoided the brown jacks of the PB2), repair was easy, but would be very cautious without filtering the negative spikes.
