Yeah, I should. Pretty darn useful things, those 251s.

Re: Tell us about your rig

Just finished building a frame so my Eurorack modular can play nice with the Moogerfoogers. I'm still waiting for Moog to release another CP-251 style unit to fill that hole. :D I also have a Little Phatty that wasn't around for the photo shoot. http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/hh122/soundxplorer/...

Re: FYI: MOOG acknowledges "MIDI IN-Power On" Bug.

I noticed some strangeness like this when I first got it. It would happen if I plugged MIDI in immediately after turning the LP on (so it was still booting up as I plugged it in). So I just started waiting until the LP had fully booted before I plugged the MIDI cable in.

Maybe someone on this forum would like to trade metal with you. I'm sure someone would prefer black over silver.

Re: updated moogerfoogers

I actually like the quicker pots, though I understand why some people would say they feel looser or cheaper. The same thing happened when Korg made the mkII versions of their Electribes. The originals had really loose knobs that were great for fast tweaking. The mkII versions had really tight knobs....

Re: phaser dry /effect mix

hi! is it possible to change the stomp switch of the MF102 to a pot? I don't think it is that simple. You'd also need some sort of mixing circuitry within the unit to mix the wet and dry signals, and that is not built in already. It would probably be easier to just buy a small external mixer like t...

Re: What is Multing and Attenuation?

Also, say you take 3 different CV voltages and combine them together in a Multiple. You shouldn't use a Multiple to combine signals. Just like you shouldn't use a Y-splitter cable going in the opposite direction to "mix" two signals into one. Use the mixer to combine signals. See the last...

Re: Little Phatty vs. Voyager: With one should I buy?

i need to know what I'm gonna miss out on if I don't buy a Voyager. So basicly what are the differences between a LP and a Voyager, and what do I need as a beginner in synths. I gonna use the synth for leads and bass sounds The Voyager has more modulation routings, a second filter and a third oscil...

Re: LAG on CP-251, suitable for CV Pitch?

so it will not interfere with pitch tracking so long as the signal presented to it is tracking correctly. Yeah, that's basically what I was asking. I know some circuits don't pass the exact amount of voltage from input to output. A passive multiple for example - it will suck away a little voltage a...

LAG on CP-251, suitable for CV Pitch?

Anyone tried using the 251's lag circuit on pitch CV to create portamento?
Does it maintain proper 1 volt per octave tracking so an oscillator will stay in tune?

Re: Slightly different finish to metal faceplate on phaser

Likely a result of their now offering lunar white finish (of the body). Could be a different paint shop? I'm about to order a white RingMode w/Black wood... wonder if I'll regret that later? (too trendy) The change happened at least a year ago (old thread). The white ones just showed up this month....

Re: If you had to buy a Poly today?

I really like the Nord Lead series, and I think it would fit your requirements just fine. The interface is laid out very well. One tip if you get one or try one out - in my opinion, it sounds great as long as you keep the resonance turned down lower. Once the res knob gets to about 1/3 the way up, t...

Re: New found love for the CP-251

the only thing i'm worried about is the reports on the low voltage level of the noise outs -- is this a problem? also, can anyone tell me how fast the S&H can sample (can it sample at low audio rates if triggered externally, perhaps?) The noise and S&H have not bothered me at all. If someon...

Re: Need help with programming LP Stage II bass

The "Thriller" bass sound is most likely a Yamaha DX7. That's what it sounds like to me, and Michael Jackson used it a lot during that time period. It uses FM synthesis, while the Moog LP uses traditional subtractive synthesis, so it may be difficult to get the sound as close as you would ...
