I finally bought a Mopho this past week. I am happy with it (it is certainly worth $400) but I must say the sound and physical design of the Little Phatty IS worth 3X the price of the Mopho. Though the signal path is analog there is a whole lot of digital control processing going on in that little y...

My sister and I got our CP-251 yesterday and it is different from the one I bought a couple of years ago (the earlier version with red jacks). It has a different finish, the new CPs have a rougher matte finish. But the knobs on the new one feel better, very smooth. My older CP's pots have a gritty f...

This is brilliant, especially for those of us who can only afford VCOs VCFs and VCAs. And with 16-24-bit resolution it throws most of the analog vs digital rhetoric out the window.

Here is the schematic for the 10-stage sequencer, the big knob selects the number of stages (2 through 10-stages). http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y242/toryjames/sequencer2.jpg There was an auction up a while ago with that touch-plate, it was through Vemia www.spheremusic.com. I think it's a Britis...

Please post your pictures of homemade controllers. Those red jacks were a stroke of genius.

DSI Mopho

I would rather have a tabletop Little Phatty, I am certain it would have more visual appeal and grace. http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y242/toryjames/mopho.jpg It looks like the E-mu XL-7 Command Station, Dave Smith needs to hire an artist to do design work (not an electrical engineer who dabbles i...

There was an earlier post regarding this issue: Search topic "FreqBox calibration/tuning." I believe Amos can install an internal multi-turn (higher resolution) trim pot if you require greater accuracy. I got mine calibrated to where I am happy with it without any circuit board modificatio...

Have you ever opened it up? What is inside? I saw those and imagine they are a 1/4" jack, a resistor and the front panel photoresistor, is that right? I'm wanting to make a pressure sensitive controller and think the innards may end up being the same.

Oops, obviously not paying attention to the post date - sorry, kind of a major oversight. I am really excited about the OS model, I really didn't think such a thing would find its way into production. Thrilled that it did though. Now to find a way to save up $2400 - I'd kick myself if it were discon...

Just to be clear, the envelope follower puts out a swelling control voltage - an opening and closing envelope shape which mimics the volume of the incoming audio (it does not put out an on/off trigger like a gate). So running the envelope follower out through a lag processor would make that rising a...

Homemade accessories (for powered 1/4" CV jacks)?

As the Moog User Manuals suggest, using the powered CV inputs on most Moog equipment could lead to some interesting home-made controllers: light sensors, ribbons, pressure sensitive pads... has anyone had success building similar accessories to work with the powered TRS (three-ring) jacks? It sounds...

"Glide" or "portamento" on an analog synthesizer is the control voltage going from an analog keyboard through a lag processor into the VCO. As you increase the effect it takes longer and longer for the VCO to respond to the changing notes (jumps in voltage coming from the keyboar...
