Thanks for the kind words everyone
...but thanks to "Kenneth" for taking the wind out of my sails!
if you had read my earlier posts you would of known that i saved the first 2 mini's i had from going to the trash heap
they were nothing more than a pile of broken parts in boxes.

i bought this 3rd one as my other mini is too screwed up to fix right now... i bought the 3rd one as a parts unit also
took the parts from #5372 and installed them in #5921.

in my view a hoarder is someone that just takes sh!t home and dumps it in a corner somewhere never to be touched again...
i dont think i fall in that category!

This is what i started with
the wood cases were too badly damaged i had to make new ones

Don't mind Kenneth, he's just jealous of your, now 3, gorgeous Minimoog Ds... :lol:

Having had, myself, to work on bringing my own Mini back to full health again when I bought it, from having been improperly stored for too long in an hostile environment, although evidently not as much as you, I can appreciate all the efforts you made on yours. With fantastic looking results I might add. :D

Yamaha EX5 and EX5r

both of which will employ Moog Little Phatty Stage 2.

- EX5 keyboard can play the LP2
- EX5r can send out arpeggiator information to the LP2

I know ... sort of redundant overkill but I like to send out arpeggiator data, then flick the arpeggiator switch on the LP2. Sort of like one LFO feeding into another. Kinda.

No I'm not!!! :x

Well, maybe a little... :oops:

Sorry if I sounded hostile. I was just worried that you were keeping synths around for no apparent reason. I stand corrected. Thanks for bringing life back to these poor abandoned beasties. :)
I don't own anything that would make you jealous.

Analog synthesizer parameters are controlled by voltages called "control voltages" in short "CV's". For example, 1volt applied to the filter CV Input on the back of your Slim Phatty will move/offset the filter cutoff frequency from it's current knob position. Likewise, 1volt applied to the Pitch CV Input on the back of your Slim Phatty will move/offset the pitch from it's current knob position.

The CP251 is simply a bunch of useful "modules" (like the modules you were looking at at synthesizers.com) in one unit. It is for processing Control Voltages to effect the end sound in your Synthesizer (like your Slim Phatty) by using it to change the values of parameters for you (much like the modulation section on the Slim Phatty).

It contains a Mixer for mixing together different control voltage waves etc. , two 'volume' knobs (attenuators) for weakening a signal, a noise source for random voltage generation, a simple Low Frequency Oscillator (like the SP modulation section's wave generator), multiples (for sending one signal to multiple locations), a lag processor (delays/slows change from one voltage to another) and sample and hold (a stepped voltage type effect). You can "patch" these sections together using cables in a modular synthesizer fashion and use the voltages to effect the sound of your analog synth.

Hope this clears it up somewhat!

I have purchased one of Tom Carpenter’s fine analogue beasts, an Analogue Solutions Leipzig S.

Two VCO’s, sub oscillator, low pass ladder filter, two ADSR envelope generators, plenty of modulation options and an 8 step analogue sequencer built in.
Next purchase will be a rack and Minitaur Rack Kit I think :D

Indeed the SK is a very handsome looking synth, and I can assure you that the Leipzig sounds very bit a good as it looks too. :wink:

Nice one red, that will go well with that GRP A4 (that was you wasn't it?)

Awaiting on these to hit my doorstep:

yes! that's me... I will also use the trio as stand alone source of new sounds - or in any combination with sounds from other sources. I'm still exploring all the unheard noises in my muppet labs (... where the future is being made today) :mrgreen:
