Oh man, that looks amazing! Half of me is feeling very glad it’s getting the use it deserves, half of me’s sad to have let it go! Hope it serves you well.

Hey what keyboard is that? Looks like it would fit my Organelle

This is the keyboard that ships with Teletype.

Aaaaaah! I THOUGHT I had seen it before on this forum haha!


Sony Walkman wm-d6c



Hey @madeinspace how are you finding that tetrapad? I’ve been looking at it for a small system but I’m worried it might be wasted on a case with only 1 or 2 voices. Do you find yourself using all the modes?

Since joining the community a few weeks ago, I’ve been really inspired to whittle things down, make some drastic changes and focus on a mostly Mannequins/Monome setup. Here’s the work-in-progress:

The Teletype/Tetrapad combo has really opened up my system, and I’m excited about Just Type. Fingers crossed I can put an ER-301 in the empty spot sometime soon…


Hey @Olivier nice setup you’ve got there. Same question to you as the one above, how are you using/ liking the tetrapad in that setup? Are you finding uses for most of the modes? Making use of it for chord stuff? That’s very similar to the system I’m running, and loving, at the moment? I was also looking at the mixpre3 for field duties, are you using it mostly to record modular?

Here’s a mysterious part of an instrument I just finished, which will be picked up by its new owner tomorrow:


An electric hurdy? with effects?

Really liking it so far, but I’ve only had it for a couple of days and haven’t had much time to explore. I’ve been desperate for any kind of tactile control, so I’m just thrilled to have that now.

I think I saw you post a question about Tetrapad in another thread, about it being underutilized in a small setup? Sure, it’s a little big, but I think it packs so much great stuff tha’ll come in handy in many different contexts, even within a small 84hp system – faders, stored voltages, LFOs, etc. With something like w/, it’s fun to have Tetrapad in chord mode controlling my voices, recording that as a loop, and then shifting to a different mode entirely.

Well spotted! An electro/acoustic gurdy with a three channel pickup and preamp system, one pickup for each set of strings. No internal effects (best left to the musician to decide) but I’m also developing a MIDI system for electro/acoustic gurdies which should lead to some interesting possibilities.


What is your opinion on SD Mixpre? thanks.


nice wood work from what i can see…love to see more. I only added with effects as i couldnt work out why 4 knobs.
Have a 6 string hurdy with gut strings…still working on how to get a pick up on it and play it with a looper. Still very much a leaner with it. Tempremental things.

How do you like the Rabid Elephant Natural Gate, seriously considering one. PS. I’m loving using my FH-1 w/ my Teletype if you’re still on the fence about 1.

I’ve also owned – in approximate order of personal preference – a Sputnik Quad VCF/VCA, Dopefer A-101-2, Dynamic Impulse Filter, DPLPG, Gerridae, and 0HP Vactrol LPG.

Natural Gate is the best of them for sound, playability and controllability :star_struck: (I loved the sound of the Sputnik, and find the Doepfer is quite controllable. I liked DPLPG’s sound quite a bit but it didn’t work well for slow attacks or quieter CVs beneath a certain threshold.)

I got to try it with a Mangrove at KnobCon last year and was impressed by it more than anything else at the show. When it became available for sale, there was only a 7 minute gap between the timestamp on the announcement and the email confirming my purchase :laughing:

I’ve got a CV.OCD which provides 12 assignable gate/trigger/clock outputs along with 4 CVs. As far as controlling the future ER-301 goes, there are a few options that look good. FH-1 is a possibility, but there are some others too… I probably can’t go wrong with any of them but I’ll hold off on my decision for now.
