Plus he made that swanky breakout panel for the CV patch points, too. It's cool as shiz

Piano + Modulars is how I'm spending the week, while house / dog sitting for friends. 24hrs a day in a house with a Baby Grand, and no one else. I can make as much noise as I want, at all hours, and I intend to.

Indeed. They have a lovely home overall. It's nearly the literal antithesis of my personal design sensibilities, but I appreciate it just the same. I'm in love with that particular (circa 1934) Piano.

Heh, yeah I actually have 3 empty skiffs now too. So *292 hp free space, in addition to what you see here.

*heh, my remedial math skills seem to be declining the older I get

zooming in on the idea...

(box o cables from Modular Addict arrived, as did the SSF/WMD Quad Attenuator). More boxes incoming:

Cut the rails for my 4th 114hp row and put most everything back in place for the time being.

Still waiting on a few new modules to arrive (Branches, Cold Mac, Mordax Data, a Mult, etc.)

Tetris Level: Expert:



(too bad it won't stay looking done.... Most of the top row and the Boog won't be in this case long. )

How are the Pressure Points working for you in your part of the world?

They work fine, I think, but for the most part I use the 3x lanes of 8-steps of Sequenced CV way more often than the touch surface part anyway.

I "play" the knobs in those lanes often so it's good that they're right there, and they do that very well, but it also seems like I'm underutilizing the PPs.

With all that said, I'm probably moving them + Brains to a different case later, with a Rene v2 and Maths, Tempi, Wogglebug, working together.

For the most part I'm reserving final judgment until I use them in that context, and a more normal Modular context than my funky Groovebox.

You had issues with swest or humidity or something, right, like they don't make contact well? I seem to remember a discussion a while back.

fwiw - So far I've used this setup out in the dry Southwest and the humid South, seemed to work the same for me, but I have no real reference...

I was thinking you were northeast for some reason. For PP and Charcot Circles, I have to give my fingers little blowjobs to get enough saliva to get them to work. I still miss Pressure Points though because it was handy to have for fixed CV sources that I might change a tiny bit with a finger touch.

The place where my studio is located got a new owner so I had to relocate my stuff back home.
The new owner dude makes cash to burn with thousands of CBD marijuana plants (edit: the real deal is still illegal in Austria) but he is the exact opposite of an easy going human...

So I had to cure my offended soul with new modules

On the left you can see the real world modular and on the right the bits and bytes modular, merged by Expert Sleepers I/O.

Thanks man, that's nice.
Everything bad also has something good; it feels better to have your gear next to you and not on a semi-abandoned ex-military base =)

I imagine moving just your racks must be a pita.

Awesome rig!

What do you think of tanh and how are you using it? I will probably get one eventually.

But it would be nice to understand what it does first.

Sorry to hear about your troubles in the old space. But like you said, sometimes things work out for the better.

If it makes you feel any better, I had my wallet stolen by gypsies yesterday.

Somehow I don't think this experience will have an eventual positive outcome.

Oh, I am sorry for you and your stolen wallet. Did you notice the theft while it happened?
Thank god or whoever this doesn't make me feel better.

tanh is pretty straightforward to use: 3 channels with input and output and one "depth" knob per channel.
Being some kind of limiter it can be used to tame delay feedback but I mostly use it to beef up digital drum sounds or waveforms from my oscillators.
Distorting a kick with it sounds different to the distortion the Manhattan DTM and WMD Ultrafold are doing and often I prefer tanh's distortion, especially on kicks.
It kinda makes 808 kicks sound woody.

edit: Sometimes I also send CV through tanh to alter its shape and play the knob while recording.

Gut instinct alarm bells were ringing during my encounter with these two shady characters, but it wasn’t until later that I realized I was being robbed.

Anyway, I’m a little wiser now from the experience. So perhaps that’s the positive.

The tanh sounds interesting and useful. Since I will need to expand my case anyway once arbar and Lúbadh are released, there will be room for one.

I am glad you are fine.
Maybe it's good that you didn't notice it immediately because arguing with such guys can go out badly.

Damn you, you mentioned the Arbhar which I "pre-ordered" too and forgot about until now. My wallet is still with me but it isn't happy now.

I pre-ordered a vinca from Schneiders back in June, got one later directly from Jason, then totally forgot about it. When the bill came for the second vinca I thought, what the hell, you can never have enough VCAs, right?

Now I’m happy I got that second one. Jason has implemented a clever routing scheme where you can link vincas from their backside via an internal cable. Not only does it simplify patching to the other side of ones case, it opens up interesting mix possibilities.

Having a second vinca also means I don’t have to feel guilty about using up a VCA and attenuverter just to send a static negative voltage into the cèis attack to get snap. Have you tried that yet? You can shorten the attack time to ~0.4ms with negative voltage. Together with the I-ō47 you can get very ARP-like sounds!

Haha, you have to go with the flow, especially when oblivion occurs from time to time =)

Thanks for the Ceis tip, I didn't know that and didn't try that. I am looking forward to doing this.

wow, great tips! hadn't thought about offsetting the attack. that was the one thing i was missing from it sometimes, a slightly more snappy attack

Also, i didn't realise you could chain vinca's! i was ordering some modules from Jason and asked him what the small module was i'd seen in recent demo vids. So there was no manual yet when i got them. installed everything in the rack so quickly i never noticed the back jack connectors, sweet

Here are a couple of more tips regarding cèis that might be useful (although what led me to the first one might just be a quirk of my own system).

When playing from a MIDI keyboard, I’m usually going through a Kenton Pro 2000 Mk2 MIDI>CV converter which can be set to single or multi-triggering of gates. The thing is I could only get a single trigger out of cèis no matter what setting I had in the Kenton (or in any other MIDI>CV converter I tried, eg YARNS) despite single vs multi working as expected with other envelope modules (eg Doepfer A-140 or Intellijel Dual ADSR). I was on the verge of contacting Jason about modifications when I thought hmm, what if I took the gate from the Kenton and ran it through an attenuator first? Voilà! Multi-triggers!

The trick is to find the threshold where a gate will still trigger cèis but have as little voltage as possible to dissipate prior to receiving the next gate. It would seem the way cèis is calibrated, it's impossible to get multi-triggers using standard +5v gate signals if there is even the slightest bit of legato overlap (which can happen inadvertently when playing from a keyboard, even with good legato/staccato technique).

Also, voltage control over gate attenuation allows for single-trigger/multi-trigger switching of cèis envelopes on the fly—again very useful for keyboardists. With multi-triggers plus extra-snappy envelopes, you can emulate ARP 2600 behavior. It sounds great and is really fun to play!

Finally, there’s cèis as a voltage controlled slew. Feed a voltage into the sustain CV input, then use attack and decay to control the rise and fall time (shape). Very cool!
