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.
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.
Someone on the noiseguide forum gear setups thread asked me for a review of the Dunst so might as well paste it here too in case anyone’s interested
tbh it is a LOT more expensive than I’d ever pay for what it does, if it weren’t by Peter Blasser. But i’ve wanted to own one of his instruments for yearsss so i got it :3
really interesting and useful module tho don’t get me wrong with quite a few ins and outs: basically theres’ a random-triangle-ish bipolar VCLFO that goes from realllly slow to a a little way into the audio range, a trigger/pulse out that matches that (fun for triggering indeterminate kick drums I find), a source of ‘dust’/crackle, a white noise source, two inverse-linked VCAs.
beautiful object of course I like the raw-pcb bare copper aesthetic he uses with these.
the ‘Dust’ (which i mainly wanted it for) and the white noise outputs are really subtle/quiet! :-/ I still get nice stuff out of them by boosting it elsewhere in the patch but then again unwanted noise/interference if too much gain after them wish they were as loud as the triangle/pulse outs, maybe there’s some mod possible…
you can’t use the 2 VCAs totally independently, they work in a connected way that i haven’t quite fully got to grips with (“If the left input is greater than right, sound goes out the “left out”. If right is greater than left, sound goes out the “right out”. The voltage amount of difference maps to loudness in these channels”) but anyway that’s by design and I can just use a normal VCA for normal VCA stuff.
he sent it packaged with some stinky taxidermied bird’s wing which was a bit horrible tho it entertained the cats for a little while
I got import taxed ordering to UK from USA. but that’s just luck of the draw.
Thanks for the review. I agree with all of that pretty much. Definitely his most subtle module.
I actually really like the weird/joined VCA things, so having an extra pair of them on the Dunst is a nice perk.
This x 1000.
I don’t know nearly enough to go in there snooping around, but it would be great to have both of those outputs be significantly louder. The noise noise in particular is almost useless as it stands. Which is a shame since you have the built in triangle trigger which would make for a killer Plumbutter snare, but only if you go out into another module to boost the noise and then back again.
Just had a go at adjusting mine, turned it as far as it seemed to make any difference, now it goes all the way up to nice white-ish noise
Discovered (even before adjusting) that if i add positive CV to it you can take it up from crackles to noise. with high voltages it turns to white noise + gets suddenly louder! but beyond a certain point it then stops making sound at all.
It’s been a while since I look at it, but if you run it through an oscilloscope you can see what’s happening more clearly. I think it impacts what the threshold for being considered “dust” is or something like that.
