Re: Moog MF102 Ring Modulator newbie question/concerns

Ring mods have a squelch circuit that closes a VCA when the input goes below a certain threshold. This is to prevent the carrier wave bleeding through. It might be that the pedal is old and needs recalibration, or it could be normal behaviour that varies with input level.

Re: Moog unipolar vs bipolar CV

Always check the manuals to get proper CV ranges. But in general negative CV is no problem. Normally knobs on MFs will act as an offset when a CV is plugged in, so a bipolar LFO (most MF LFOs are bipolar IIRC) will sweep above and below this setting. From memory, I think you can apply a negative off...

Re: Clara Rockmore's 105th birthday Google doodle

No worries :)

Agreed, the best thereministe I've seen is Pamelia Stickney, with an avant garde band called Blueblut. Such killer synth bass! She also had a hand in the design of the Etherwave Pro, and was musing with the current engineers about a re-issue/update.

Re: Clara Rockmore's 105th birthday Google doodle

That Theremin Google Doodle is too easy to play, with chromatic scale preset notes. A real Theremin is incredibly much harder to play. Unless you have a version with "Assistive pitch quantization", which Clara Rockmore certainly didn't have in the 1930's. She didn't have "Pitch Previ...

Theremin forum is a ghost town, but you can practise The Swan with Rockmore today on Google.

Looks like jam sessions at your place would be very fun MC! Where do the MFs/modular systems go?

Re: Help please!! BassMurf broken? all 3 LEDS light yellow

Happened to me about 10 years ago:

http://forum.moogmusic.com/viewtopic.ph ... 72&p=19181

The CPU is stuffed it seems, sorry about that. You'll have to send it to Moog for fixing, assuming they still have replacement parts because the 105B was discontinued some time ago.

Good luck!

Yeah, you're right MC. But it was just a bit of info I though to pass on.

I noticed on another forum that it seems (unless it's just coincidence) that Mike was recently subjected to a lien/bankruptcy sale; "Southtown Storage Center will sell in a commercially reasonable manner all the personal property stored by: Megan E. Allen C066 Joseph C. Ciliberti D042 Cory T. C...

Re: Faulty TI chips in Voyager Old School?

From memory, it was to do with the 4000 series CMOS, perhaps the 4051? I think forum user RL (Rudi Lindhardt) had some advice here. Perhaps search the forum using each chip code as a keyword? Have you contacted Moog about it yet? Would an option be to remove the analogue board yourself and ship it w...

Re: Arturia steps up its game with MatrixBrute

Looks like a logical progression over the Voyager, at least in terms of the controls.

Re: WNAMM2016: Korg Minilogue

Smart move. They know it's better to sell 10000 $500 synths than 1000 $5000 synths. That depends on if your goal is to create a quality product or just make some money. Plus part of the point of selling a flagship a $5000 synth is so that people will want it and then buy the high-quality $1500 mode...

Smart move. They know it's better to sell 10000 $500 synths than 1000 $5000 synths. Seems simple to use/perform with, kind of like an extension to the SH101 and also reminds me of the Teisco (110f that is) I used to own. You might think the display is small, but they're extremely crisp and with good...

Re: Just bought a Model D on eBay...

Recapping does not always result in better sound. Recapping power supplies does not always improve them. When I recapped the power supply in my OBX I took before and after pictures of each rail probed on the Oscilloscope. There was no difference. The only two reasons you should recap is if the chas...
