Perhaps MuRF sliders for ADSR? BTW, if it has envelope generation, would it also be called a Voltage Controlled Amplifier? (VCO + VCA). And don't you usually put your VCO through a VCF before the VCA? More outputs? OR seperate pedals, one VCA, one VCO!!! And Moog said they wouldn't do modular again....

Replies: 2

Hi Steve, and welcome. Good electronic circuits employ a "power diode." In effect, when the polarity is reversed, the diode creates a large voltage drop, meaning the current drawn will not damage your unit, and it ensures the power only flows in one direction. I once plugged a positive adaptor into ...

I read the voyager manual, the VX-351 outputs the triangle wave as +/- 2.5V. The squarewave is different. Other CV inputs take +/- 5V, (LFO rate I think) and some take 0 to +5V. All moogerfoogers take 0 to +5V, but as I said earlier, it may be possible to underclock them.

What if you added a DC offset of -2.5V to a normal LFO?

0 - 2.5V = -2.5V
+5 - 2.5V = 2.5V

That would convert from (0 to +5V) to (-2.5 to +2.5V)

Sounds correct to me. Think of an AC signal supplied to somewhere as a modulation source. If you apply a non-modulated voltage, you are giving the module or whatever a direct current, so the controller position is essentially static.

+5 and -5 voltages do not have the same phase and opposite amplitudes. They have opposite phases and same amplitudes. Sorry, you're quite right! I completely contradicted myself. This is why I do chemistry and not physics! Of course amplitude is an absolute value, here peak to peak it's +5V Sorry f...

I wouldn't call an envelope signal AC or DC, because it only triggers when you give it a gate signal. No gate signal = 0V envelope CV! Maybe if you were to trigger one regularily (with a clock etc.), then the wave might be considered AC. Different instruments use different CV, the most common being ...

DC = direct current, so the potential (voltage) does not change with time. AC = alternating current, so the potential does change with time. Say a knob is on "0" and you twist it to "10." On a regular vintage analog synth, this would represent a change from 0 to +5 Volts. As long as the knob stays o...

Thanks Mal, I was wondering when you were going to show up! (having seen your Chroma posts before.) I am going to go and play the Chroma, just to see if it does anything for me. The seller says it is in great condition, but I guess if it craps out in the future it would still be a very nice MIDI key...

The power pack was not Moog. It was the correct polarity, but may not have had enough current. I emailed Amos; he said the orange lights meant the CPU was having serious trouble. The thing was brand new, so at least it's still under warranty.

I think the pedal power has special red plugs that reverse the polarity (MFs need +9VDC at the tip). If you don't have these, you can make your own (radio shack). Most brands of expression pedal should work with Moog pedals. It needs to have a 50/100kOhm pot in it, which you can check with a multime...

I think I'm going to pass on the Chroma It seems to be a jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none synth. Sure, it can emulate other synths, but not particulally well. Tweaking: Near zero without a knob box. No CV/gate. Quantised, digital edit parameters (e.g. 0-7 steps for resonance). Reliability: Near zer...

Hi Eric, and thankyou for you reply. Regarding MIDI, it is actually quite simply added to the Chroma. This is done by adding a break-out box to the d-sub connector on the back. And the one I'm looking at has one of these (I think). Or, a hardware upgrade can be performed for about US$ 350. Of course...

What do the Moogers think of the the Rhodes Chroma?

I did some searching through the Moog site, and saw a few people had the experience of owning/playing one of these. What are they like to play/what kind of sounds do you get? (I am a medium-level synthesist with an AE Voyager.) Do they stay in tune/are they reliable? (I have heard conflicting opinio...
