Re: x3 Mothers connection help

Vsyevolod -- I think it's fair enough to discuss the mixers and effects we use with our Moogs. Personally I'm interested to hear what gear other people use with their Moogs.

Re: Mother 32 SQ1&Reason sync issue

I'm using an SQ-1 as a MIDI to CV converter for my Voyager Old School. It works, but the Old School's CV/pitch tracking is whack. It's nowhere near 1V/Oct. Mine is something like 1.3V/Oct. I have to amplify the CV from the SQ-1 to get it to play in tune. Apparently Moog decided accurate external CV/...

Re: Mothers day May 8

I think Mother should hook up with some rich old System 55 with a malfunctioning oscillator (no pre-nups).

Re: x3 Mothers connection help

Impossible to run external FX on the MG12XU ??? Yamaha actually said it was "impossible" when it is an obvious feature of the mixer? I have never used an MG12XU but looking at the product manual it has AUX1 and AUX2 sends on each channel strip and two jack outputs for AUX1 and AUX2 right t...

Re: Moog Sub 37 & _________? I've got the Moog bug!

The Mother 32 without doubt if you want a more modular-style setup. You can use MIDI from the Sub 37 keyboard to drive the Mother 32. You can use the Mother 32 patch panel outputs to drive the Sub 37's filter CV, pitch CV, volume CV, and KB gate. You can also feed the Mother 32 audio output back int...

Re: Sub 37 Tribute vs Voyager RME

I don't have an RME but I have a regular Voyager and a Sub 37. The Sub 37 wasn't around when I bought my Voyager but if I was considering the purchase today I'd go with the Sub 37 and use the money saved on other gear. Of course the Voyager has three oscillators compared to the Sub 37s two. The Sub ...

Hey there, Thanks for the replies! I sorted it out. My problem was twofold Fold the first ) The guy I bought it from said that this was an issue, and I believed him. I am a trusting person by nature. This preconception of malfunction followed me to.... Fold the second) I've never messed around with...

..........The worst thing was he sold in on almost immediately and got a Voyager with the proceeds........ OH MY GOOOOOOOOODDDD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah. My reaction exactly - worse he didn't let me know he'd sold it until showed up at a rehearsal with a spanky new Voyager. I would have bought it off ...

Re: Minimoog Model D Osc 3 Control switch defies expectation

Make sure you replace all the electrolytic caps even if you think they are working. Doing this might be regretted later... I did just that on one of my Mini's and it never did sound the same again. Always replace the electrolytics in the power supply, yes... but all the others I would leave... unle...

Re: Hissing from 907 Fixed Filter Bank

I think you may need to replace the capacitors. At least the electrolytic caps in the input and output stages of the 907. The electrolyte in old caps can break down over time and cause noise. The other caps in the passive circuit too. Replacing them with modern polyester caps would probably improve ...

Re: Minimoog Model D Osc 3 Control switch defies expectation

Model Ds are now so ancient and generally hacked around by clueless DIYers that anything is possible. The only way you'll get to the bottom of this is with a lot of patience and a good meter and 'scope. A while ago I did a Model D restoration for a former band-mate (he's a great player but completel...

Re: First Recorded Doodles w/Mother & SP

Good sounds and a clean, spacious mix. The character of the Mother shines through. Perhaps a bit too much going on with different sounds that don't sit easily together but I realise you're just experimenting with the Mother's capabilities. I liked it :D
