I love these kinds of threads, what is the most recent thing you've purchased?

I'll start:

Now, all I need is a MIDI keyboard -______-

My latest purchases. :mrgreen:

and my future purchases, not saying which modules, other than 3 Q106's

Oh my goodness. In all my years of romping around the internets, I tend to avoid websites with overly simple domain names (ex. like www.pizza.com if I'm hungry), but this site is amazing! Time to start saving :3

Welcome to the forum :)

My most recent:

This week - a set of Eventide effects processors - the TimeFactor (digital delay), PitchFactor (harmoniser) and Space (reverb). I was going to go with all-Moogerfooger CV effects, but until the product lines stabilise (MF-104 replacement? MP-201 replacement?) I'll hang back a few months. I love Eventide effects (always have in relation to guitar) so these are fine additions to the stable. The 'Foogers will come later - I already have the VX-351 CV extension for the thing I bought week before last....

And to go in the rack above my Phatty chain:

2 x (had one already though):

Here is a pic of where they will go above the Phatty chain:

My three three purchases: some new, some not so new... Actually, one is probably older than you Xombiexplox ! :lol:

I've been wanting one of these for a really long time,
and finally got one at NAMM:

http://log-jam.co.uk/

It's basically a chunk of wood with a transducer inside.
Plug it in to an amp and you've got a pretty convincing
kick drum that responds to various performance
techniques as well as different shoe types.

The bottom line is that it's a riot to stomp along with
guitar, bass, or keys. It changes "just playing your
instrument" into a performance that people will
stop and watch.

I've googled those things over and over, and I still don't quite understand their purpose. I understand they manipulate sounds somehow, but what sort of things will you use them for? :O

Curse you, Dan! Once again you've brought up something completely pointless, and made it look like something I want. :shock:

edit: Now, if only someone would do this with sheet metal, Jack White could BE the White Stripes. :lol:

If you can't understand the uses of the CP-251, you should get one before looking at synthesizers.com stuff. Each CP-251 contains several modules, and is used to manipulate voltages used to control either MoogerFoogers or can be used with the SP via CV inputs. :wink:

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!

Hahaha! :lol:
I could have got one cab, but I had to go all the way! Atleast there's nothing left to upgrade in that department!

P.S. I love your EB Voyager! especially in the dark.. I'm looking into getting a Voyager or starting a Buchla modular system soon (I can't decide which!).

Christchurch people need to raise a petition against you turning them on - otherwise they're going to disappear into the sea as you'll be the cause of the next quake. :shock:

Well, this isn't Moog but...
I got this:

But when it arrived it looked like this:

And the owner of the company acted like this:

So I got a refund and got this:

I think my next purchase will probably be a dotcom cabinet.
