Re: 901b tracking

Thanks for those ideas. I actually did that with the first two which worked fine ..but this third one is a rogue. As the first two work fine I don't want to mess with the 901a ... I guess it could be Q7 ...maybe an odd frequency compared to the other two. Just wondered if anyone had had this problem.

901b tracking

One of my three 901b clones doesn't track properly. All three are identical in components but although replacing P2 I'm still getting the problem that I run out of turn on the P2 in the problem 901b. I get sync on the upper end of the keyboard but it's way out at the bottom and there's no more turn ...

Re: Model 15 hum

No ...not normal. I once had this problem . The only thing you can do is check your power connections, make sure it is properly earthed. Check you haven't got any loose connections. Also where is your set up ? Isolate it away from anything where it could pick up external interference . Is there anyt...

Re: Definitive vibrato.

Thanks for the info...yes this is basically how I'm using vibrato now.

Out of curiosity how do use the delay VCA ...Lin or Exp position ?

PS....that's a good way of archiving patch connections .

Re: Definitive vibrato.

Thanks all....

I guess getting the vibrato I want will be a combination of different things.

Re: Definitive vibrato.

Thanks E...I wondered if anyone had any other method ...I still don't seem to get the "sweet" vibrato I'm looking far. I've used the LFO into Eg controlled VCA and out again to obtain delay and also EG into LFO controller to vary speed and depth (also taking this signal into the filter as well) but ...

Definitive vibrato.

Just add LFO to CV...? I'm routing LFO sine from a 921 into a CP3 then onto the CV control input of the 921a ... I've never been totally happy with this . On You Tube clips, I I sometimes hear a 'human type singing' vibrato on simple waveforms which seem to have quite a depth without sending the bas...

Many thanks MC...now I recollect seeing this method before..I'm sure this is going to give me what I'm looking for.

MIDI velocity controlling VCA output.

I'm finding that trying to control volume via midi velocity out from midi to CV unit is not very effective. I'm taking a patch lead from the midi velocity out to the input of an attenuator and then another patch lead from attenuators output to the control input of a the VCA. The attenuator is there ...

Re: MOOG 15 emvelope problems

Check your power connections to the 911's and also check the Gate connections both from your keyboard and your 911's ...try shorting the Gate connections at the 911 with a screwdriver to make sure everything there is correct.
If they don't trigger it will be a power connection problem.

Large round trimmer

As a follow up to my first query does anyone have any information on the large silver coloured round trimmers as used on the 904a ?
I think they are still available as I've seen them on recent designs but cannot make out the name or manufacturer .

Re: PCB trimmer/pre-set

I suppose it's a purist thing really, I'm simply trying to get as authentic as possible not only to sound but also to appearance . Having seen genuine Moog circuit boards I'm particularly impressed by vintage parts. For instance I made the mistake of using 1/4 w resistors in my clones when in fact 1...

PCB trimmer/pre-set

Does anybody know which company made the variable trimmer pots which are found on the modular PCBs
(the blue and browny types) and if they are still available anywhere ?

907 padders

My cloned 907 fixed filter bank has been working fine but has always seemed to deliver half the level of the audio signal out. I treble checked all the circuit and my layouts/components etc and found no discrepancy so the only thing left was to check the "padders" on resistors 2-17 as suggested in t...
