Re: Minitaur visual quality

No comments maybe because no one else sees the visual defects you're talking about? Your Minitaur looks no worse than mine.

Re: Moog One FEATURE Requests

Moog One Light Show Timer Moog One Light Show engages after keyboard/panel is left untouched for a specified number of minutes. 1, 5, 10, 30, and 60 minutes would be fine. Obviously, touching anything on One would halt the Light Show. Cool 8) Years ago I gigged my Memorymoog (brave, I know) and dur...

Re: HARDWARE DISCONNECTED - SIRIN

Not sure this helps, but I had to use a different USB port on my MBP with my Minitaur. For some reason the editor won't work with certain ports. Nothing wrong with either port as my USB thumbdrive works in both. Checked system config and both are the same and operational.

When you want that old school sound of voices cutting off when you exceed the number of voices. :lol:

Re: Moog One - Not For Everybody

BTW if you're using a spectrum analyzer app on a handheld or computer, don't accept the results as robust scientific proof. Spectrum analyzers are very dependent on the quality of the A/D conversion, which isn't very high in consumer devices like handhelds and computers (not even standalone audio co...

Re: Moog One - Not For Everybody

If there is one thing that I've learned over the many years of owning and playing many different synths, it's that you cannot rely solely on traces on an oscilloscope to compare the overall sounds between them. Yup. Measurements in the frequency domain reveal a lot more. A standard 'scope measures ...

Re: Moog Source via MCV4 CV Scaling woes

There's no trimpot in the Source to adjust the CV scaling. You'd have to adjust the scaling at the MIDI->CV converter.

I don't understand "always seems to be playing the control note". Please rephrase.

Re: Moog One - Not For Everybody

That said, if you want immediate classic poly sounds, that synth is probably not for you. And the P6, OB6 or vintage units are probably much more appropriate. So , yes, as I would say from the A6, “not a synth for everybody “. Heartily agree. Synths like Andromeda and M1 are not "instant grati...

Re: The One Vocoder?

You need a mic preamp. The output of a mic is very small and it is unlikely that the M1 trim has enough gain for a microphone.

Great that you got it sorted out.

Re: Any Other Source Lovers?

Happy owner since 1985. Underrated for years because it didn't have a panel full of knobs, now it is getting some respect. I have T1 and vintage Minimoog, and the Source can hold its own against them.

Re: 904B control input 'bleed' through...

Are Q13, Q17, Q21, Q25 a matched set? Q14, Q18, Q22, Q26 matched?

You are aware that the test circuit from the service manual for matching PNPs is incorrect, yes?

If any of them are unmatched that is where the feedthrough comes from. The 904B has no trimpot for reducing feedthrough.
