Do you have enough vca for yourself in the rack or are you using some other way out the box? I’m just questioning if 2 just friends is to much in 104 hp
at the moment, probably the make noise mult, ears, one of the just friends, and mangrove.
Zadar I have pre-ordered with more of a try-it-out-and-see approach- I try to limit the screens as much as possible but we’ll see how that goes and if it has the power/flexibility to oust a JF for modulation and/or envelope purposes.
QPAS I’m pretty thoroughly convinced has staying power in the case, potentally replacing sisters just because of the small case, we’ll see, but for now I’m thinking of keeping sisters in to experiment with how the two play along.
I’d say in general I still haven’t made my mind up about DPO v 2Mangroves. They both have their strengths and weaknesses. The mangroves have such a unique quality that I’m still wrestling with fitting into my music- they are so full of character but oftentimes lacking in weight/body. The DPO is trickier to get straightforward two-voice stuff out of, but for some indescribable reason it just brings me so much joy aesthetically and to play around with outside of “making music.”
I’d say the same about Morphagene vs W/, though that’s maybe even a little bit more apples to oranges. I love how instant and immediate the Morphagene is compared to w/, but man it is big, expensive, and the auto-leveling kind of drives me crazy…what I wouldn’t give for just a little minipot level control over the input gain, rather than the auto-leveling implementation that for me always seems to result in either inescapable clipping or TONS of noise. W/ I need more time with (ha jokes), it’s so insanely powerful and sounds great but I swear it would be a no brainer slam dunk if it were just 4-6 hp instead of 2 and had a knob or something on it to cut back on the button combinations.
if using one JF as a sound source and one as a modulator then I say go for it, but two as modulators or two as a sound source I think would be a bit much in 104hp depending on what else is there.
Run me through the left case and top skiff if you don’t mind…
Sure thing! The left case is a Sputnik 25S Dual Oscillator (a 259 clone in one space), a 257r Voltage Processor, a 281r Quad Envelope Generator, and a 292c Quad Lo Pass Gate and 248r Multiple Arbitrary Function Generator (a really great sequencer that can do a large number of things). The skiff is all 200e stuff: 206e preset manager and mixer, 261e Dual Oscillator, 267e Uncertainly Source/Dual Filter, 281e and 292e.
That’s what all’s in there; lemme know if you wanna know about the patch
here’s my current instrument:
there’s some things that are changing though - trying to figure out how to fit in a DLD and Cold Mac
@huron that is a very well-designed case. I’m always shocked at how balanced and reasonable people’s 7U cases are, when mine feels mostly like a careless mess lol
Very nice! I’m building a somewhat similar box. What power supply are you using?
