Ha, I was gonna ask him if it will get the "Tom Sawyer" growl sound.

Midi Poly chain wth more than one Mothers ,is it possible?
is it possible to limit the sequencer steps to any number? (2 up to 31 steps)

No, I don't think so. This required MIDI out which the Mother does not have. You can sync multiple Moms via CV tho.

*EDIT* Maybe you mean have the controlling keyboard go into a splitter and then to the MIDI ins of multiple Mothers? That case may be theoretically possible, but there is nothing in the manual that I can see about poly chaining.

Another question ... can the LFO be synced to the VCO to be used as a second VCO? I know the site says a max of 600 hz but wondering if this a practical thing.

is the Moog 962 keyboard ONLY for the more expensive modulars or could you use it as the mother keyboard for your whole modular setup?

via the Mother 32 as the hub and then the KB CV Out of the Mother 32 as the connection for your modular rig?

if so, that would be fresh

and when do we get to see the video of mr fisher tweakin all the knobs

woo hoo Excited :P

Moogerfooger question:

Is the patchbay i/o voltage compatible with Moogerfoogers? Would be something to be able to use Freqbox easily as second oscillator and CP-251.

does the vc lfo track 1v/oct, so that it can be used as a second vco?
(the werkstatt's doesn't)

about the second crossfader (mix1, mix2, vc mix):

the manual says that it is dc coupled and all the examples in the manual are about mixing or attenuating control voltage signals. does this crossfader work with audio signals, too?

[edit:] actually, this is answered in the manual:

This is a DC-coupled, patchable, voltage-controlled mixer/attenuator that allows
two different CV or audio signals to be blended together [...]

note to self: rtfm. [/edit]

there are two ways to achieve this:

1. midi polychaining: use the (sadly, discontinued) mutable instruments midipal (or one of its diy successors). its 'dispatcher' app can turn any combination of midi-synthesizers into individual voices of one meta-synth. if you use a pc for sequencing, i'm sure there will be some software that does the same.

2. polyphonic midi-to-cv/gate: use a polyphonic multichannel midi-cv/gate interface, like the kenton pro 2000 or one of the excellent muc interfaces. or if you prefer eurorack, there are modules like the vermona quad midi or the upcoming doepfer a-190-5.

yes, sequences can be any length up to 32 steps. just have a look at the manual.

The Werkstatt does track to 1v/oct, you just have to calibrate it. If Mother does not track 1v/oct out of the box (which would surprise me since they are aiming at Eurorack) then you can calibrate it via the front panel access holes and the supplied calibration tool.

my question was about the lfo, not the vco.

Hey Dan,


Are the OSC, Filter, Envelopes, basically the same as the ones that are in the Sub phatty series/Werksatt/Minitaur?
Does the Mother-32 have discrete audio/CV pathways? Would sending higher than 5v into the gate cv in cause any harm?

Thanks!

Hi Dan, as we wait for Mom to arrive ... :-). We do have a couple of questions.

What would be the ideal integration between the Arp and my Mother ... I saw both have MIDI in. Interesting that folks are going strictly MIDI in these days. Both have 1/8 Gates and Cv so i guess we could mess around that way.

What would be the ideal integration between the Voyager XL? 1/8 to 1/4 cables to go Gate/CV out/in?

Any ideas on Theremin Plus Gate out / Pitch CV out?

Finally, thoughts on integration of Mom with the family of MoogerFoogers

Thanks in advance for any and all FEEDBACK!!!!

I have a (possibly dumb) question. How well would the Mother-32 work with a Voyager Old School? Could I use it to sequence the Voyager?
Thanks

It seems stable not long after power up, but I haven't meticulously held it up against a precise reference.

FWIW, the manual states:
Your Mother-32 is an analog instrument and should be allowed 10-15 minutes to warm up before use.
In cases where it has been left in a cold car overnight, for example, it may take as long as 25 minutes
before oscillator tuning has stabilized. Do not operate the Mother-32 in direct sunlight.


pnorris79 wrote:Also, how hot is the oscillator into the filter and can you control its gain into the filter?

The MIX knob balances between VCO only (fully CCW) and NOISE / EXT (fully CW).

So, it doesn't seem like there's an "overdrive" amount that can be provided by the MIX knob.
But, you could always go from VCO SAW out (or VCO PULSE out) to a gain box and then back into the EXT. AUDIO input.
