I see Braids, I give instant thumbs-up. It doesn't get the love from the modular community that it used to, but that's still a go-to for me for angry digital sounds. Plaits loses that edginess in my opinion. Glad to see I'm not the only one still hanging on to it.

One dumb thing that I didn’t know until many months in when I was first starting, that Links in your rack is also a precision adder.

Also completely agree on Plaits vs Braids, Braids is by far the much better of the two, both feature and sound wise.

I still call it Plates even though I know it's Platts.

I was very happy with Plaits, so I thought it would be cool to have its previous iteration (the truth is I bought it for the display!). Plus, it was only $98 brand new! Glad to hear it's garnered such wide endorsement!

Around the time I was first getting into Eurocrack, Braids was super hot stuff for the fact that 1.) it sounds pretty mean most of the time and 2.) Richard Devine was using a couple of these in Macro mode to get his signature glitchy sound. I don't hear that trick as often in music anymore, but the character of it is still great if you like angry robot sex noises.

Looks like the church of electronic music there padre

I want a few choice Mutables modules, myself, but just haven't gotten around to it yet, beyond Branches which is awesome and super useful.

I think I bring this up every time someone mentions Branches, but that is such an underrated module. When I first got into Euro, I didn't understand why people were obsessed with clocks and dividers and multipliers, etc. Branches was my eye-opener. I went clock-crazy right afterward.

Seen the Slim Duo?
Just picked this one up. Cheaper than two and slimmer than two!

If half would run the stock firmware, and the other half run Twigs, I’d have to buy one of those.

Just received it and it is printed on the back pcb, right twigs, left twigs. There are two programming headers, so it looks like they are separate and could be programmed accordingly

Didn't realize they were so universally praised (not that I even know what a quad-Bernoulli gate does). But, I really like the Michigan Synthworks' modules in that vein (also produced in black with a different typeface). Too bad they're sold out.

Emu synth modules

Hello,

I have a small quantity of epoxy potted, Elco Connector, Emu modules I purchased back in the early 1970s as a teenager. This is what I have . . .
Qty Item
4 Model 1200 Voltage Controlled Oscillator
1 Model 1100 Voltage Controlled Filter
1 Model 1111 Voltage Controlled High Pass Filter (not epoxy potted)
2 Model 1122 Universal Active Module

These worked the last time I used them back in the 70s, but I have no easy way to test them. Are these worth anything and of any use to anyone?

Its a fancy gate randomizer, that you can kind of influence with cv I believe.
One of those parameters is likely a probability knob, looks like it should return 1 of 4
values from 1 gate. 1-1, 1-0, 0-0, 0-1. Of course I'm only guessing by looking at it.

One popular use case:

Feed a trigger pattern into a Bernouilli Gate, and route its Output A to wherever the Trigger pattern normally goes... also, patch nothing into Output B.

Now, every time a Trigger hits the Bernoulli Gate a virtual coin toss happens, Route to Out A or B, based on the Probability setting of said Bern. Gate.

And... everytime the coin toss lands on Route In to Out B (instead of Out A), you get a Mute where you'd otherwise have a Trigger (because Out B goes nowhere)... and... by "playing" the Probability control, you control Mutes in your Trigger pattern.

For instance...

You could always shoot an email to Dave Rossum to see if he’ll take them off your hands..

I've no idea of their actual value, at the moment, but I think they're super cool and am interested if you let them go...

Another Use Case is to let a Bernouilli Gate determine whether you're triggering a Closed High Hat (say, via Out A) or an Open High Hat (Out B), and now the pattern b/w Open and Closed has clocked Probability deciding which is heard.

And then...

Combine both of my examples to act upon, say, a steady stream of 16th notes...

And now you have two degrees of Probability in your High Hat pattern, the first that selectively *skips* some of the 16ths for variability, *and* you have control over the Closed and Open option, *and* by "playing" those two knobs/faders (whilst tracking or performing) you have a "better drummer" or rather one that's more human feeling and not just a zillion 16ths in a row, nor do you have to programmatically/deliberately sequence those sorts of High Hat variations.

Then... if you're really feeling frisky, use some CV modulation to wiggle both of those Bernouilli Gate Probability params with CV so you don't have to woggle them manually, like a slow LFO or two or both halves of an SQ-1 or two channels of a Voltage Block and so on.

Now your "modular drummer" is way better.

Retired a Waldorf KB37 (will be going up for sale) and replaced with a couple Tiptop Audio 104hp Mantis cases. I needed another row, and realized I very rarely use the keyboard on the KB37 for the modular. I am much happier with this setup. Have an Intellijel mixup in the mail for the empty hole. Glad its full cause my addiction needs to stop. Although trying to replace the Disting mk4 with a Disting EX if i can ever find one.

So I'm curious what is the difference between this and a switch like the Instruo Tain (other than this has a slider).

Yeah, I know what you mean about not using the keyboard much in modular. I was super on the fence about getting my kb37, but I ended up getting it anyway. Your set-up looks very usable and inviting!
