Which ones are these?
2 black functions. 8)
:clap:
I thought about doing the same… it would make more sense for me over Maths, plus add an extra 4hp.

And, was thinking to add DXG too.

Hmmmm… decisions, decisions, decisions


Edit: decision made. Ordered 1 Function to go along with the other. Maths will get the boot for a while.

And ordered the DXG. Nothing in stock, so hopefully I’m not too late on the Functions.

Time to plan a bit more on modular grid!

I replaced Maths with two Functions a few years ago, mainly for these features:

I have been using function over Maths every time, then adding in 1&4 of Maths, but usually just channel 1!

It just sucks that my two won't match! :hihi:

Post

ill be adding them to maths, for four channels of motion! :band:

im tempted by a second dxg.
4 separate lpgs is far more useful for perc type stuff. although i have the lxd, just less options and no stereo.

I'm trying to add Dynamix back into the rack, without removing the mono Steady Fate Gate. It has the envelope out, which I really like. It's different enough to justify keeping it alongside DXG, especially (as Shabs initially talked me into it) as it can be used to sidechain, plus add finishing saturation.

Having Spectraphon, XPO, Mimeophon & QPAS makes it difficult to not add DXG!

Same goes for XPan, which I still haven't ordered.

I've been playing around with different setups to get ready for Erbeverbe, whenever that comes.

I didn't see this coming:

Finally sorted out my (ex-tank) throat mic. The last thing I'd have expected (3.5mm plugin-in power) worked!
Built two Zlob mini-atts (2HP)
Half-built two Zlob skew LFOs (3HP)

Zlob stuff is great for leftover space in a row.
my other modular synth is a bugbrand

they also have the logo that looks like an old death metal band :band:

That too. TBH, I think its a bit of a shame that their panel artwork is all white on black now, mine are all red on black, which looks cooler IMO.

i don't have any, but signal sounds threw a load of stickers in with the schtick! and flyers for cool looking stuff :o
the hard sell!! :hihi:

Not a synth this time, but I just ordered a Roland A-800 Pro.

Had one of those, got best part of 10 years use from it. The only issue I had was the material the fader sliders are made of goes a bit sticky after a while. Lots of good controls though.

Are you safe?

I heard the aftertouch takes a bit more pressure than some other keyboards, but that's OK by me. Was yours that way?
