You are most definitely clipping.....when your playing is more dynamic my meter stays in the red.  I have an Eclipse and it will act in a similar way if pushed too hard and if you like that over saturation you hear while the clipping occurs I dont know of a way to get it without pushing it to the levels you are and it always will sound like what your demo illustrated.

It comes down to your performance and how you hit the H8000.  Understanding how the Eventide behaves you can use this saturated effect but it might take a bit of balancing between equipment to find the appropriate limit.

A couple of videos of a favorite module of mine for animation, the Make Noise RxMx plus their fixed filter...its a very unique mixer.

Nice system Harry.....perhaps this thread will help inspire you to move forward  :)

Julio, I've been looking at addac's 111 wav player and also their fixed filter bank, they look cool. I've even considered selling my Plan B VCOs and replacing the with their 701 VCOs, they are based on the 921 Moog VCO. One advantage they have over other VCOs is that they have octave switches on the module.

Yeah the addac 111 looks good and full featured.....the addac 101 I have was purchased from Taylor Deupree and he was kind enough to include an SD card with his samples so I could get a sense of the module but I have not recorded any of my own yet .  Their file naming system for the SD card is a little strange Im told.

How's the Qu-Bit Nebulae?

I do love the addac fixed filter, it serves as a sculpting tool and 8 band equalizer and adding cv to certain or all bands makes for a very creative module.

I past through Lisbon this summer but then I had never heard of addac or I would have tried to find them and pay a visit.

And now with all that space where will you go next.....

So much stuff out there now, next purchase will probably be something sexy like a 4 into 1 mixer.  ;D I've been looking at some of the ADDAC System modules, I see you have a few, what do you think of them?


I do have 5 addac modules, 501 Complexed Random, 101 Wav Player, 601 Fixed Filter, 402 4 Voice Heuristic Rhythm Generator and 2 802 Quintet Mixing Console.  The build quality is the best I have seen, absolutely solid.

The 2 802 mixing consoles are the heart of my system and its here that I interact the most "riding the faders" during a recording or taming some unexpected sonic surge.  I use the 5 individual outputs X2 a total of 10 which go out to 10 inputs on the mixer where I do panning.  The mixer does have a mix output but its mono a drawback for some where stereo is preferred.  Smooth pots and excellent sound






The 4 Voice Heuristic Generator is very new to my system so I let the video speak






Love the Fixed Filter for sculpting sound






Have not got into the Wav player yet and the complexed random does random very well.  The addac pots can be strange using 12 oclock as zero.

Health mix of modules Loren......AS case looks like a complete and solid system.

I see you have 2 Verbos Multi Envelopes .....interesting

The Grendel filter caught my eye as Im interested in the Drone Commander 2.

And now with all that space where will you go next.....

Hi Loren,

Heres a picture of the Eurorack modular with 2 renditions from modulargrid for easier viewing

Got to be careful with these images or the thread will be moved to the Gearheads section of the forum ;D

Haha, too true. So start another thread over in the Gearheads section, I'd like to talk about your system more.

I'll try giving your soundcloud page a listen tonight.

My Eurorack System.









Heres a few more modules i have but dont have a skiff yet to put them in.....Make Noise Rene, Echophone, Erbeverb, Pressure Points & Brains.  These modules were pulled to make space in the cases as they were my least favorite modules that came with the Make Noise System

This complete 2 case system came together mid November 2015.

Ordered the Make Noise Shared System which is based around their case that has the CV bus bar running down the middle of the case to distribute control voltage.....brilliant invention.  The Shared system had a lot of delays because of the case manufacturer so while I waited I started a second case of modules that I wanted rather than a pre determined system.  Ultimately I had to order the Make Noise system from Analogue Haven....these are not custom orders, you can buy them off the rack so to speak. The cases have modules coming in and going out and switched around so the original Make Noise Shared System is not there as it arrived.

With the most incredible explosion of popularity in the history of the modular synthesizer primarily driven recently by the Eurorack system its time for a dedicated modular synth thread.

All modulars are welcome here.....what you had, what you have and what you dream of having.

I do recall back in the old Hypnos forum days that that the two of you work together and then went on to operate separate labels.

Ive heard many speak well of Dennis.

Thanks.

Thanks Anthony for taking the time to giving it a listen.

It is a good setup with still much to be revealed as I discover its capabilities. 

This modular is the first synth where polyphony is not an issue.  I think there are 5 complete voices, maybe more but this is not important as I do not use a keyboard interface.  What is important is the amount of different sonic events that can exist together in real time.

Its a truly liberating experience to use an instrument that is vastly more complexed than I could ever imagine and even though I have past modular experience, Im really forced to operate it as if I were a child again with no prior knowledge or past to cutter and influence my actions.

Nice bit of history Forrest.....Had not thought of using these patches down the line, interesting idea.

I always liked modulars in cases with handles.


2 new patches of a similar quality.....this illustrates how a turn of a single knob can change everything.  The studio picture is this patch.  All I did was increase the clock rate that was driving the patch by a small amount.  There are similar tones for sure but its quite different.

patch 20 https://soundcloud.com/digitalvoices/patch-20?in=digitalvoices/sets/modular-musings

patch 20b https://soundcloud.com/digitalvoices/patch-20b?in=digitalvoices/sets/modular-musings

Whats exciting and fun for me is I am as much a part of the audience as I am the patcher so to speak....its all control voltage doing the manipulating.  I do ride the faders(knobs) on the 2 mixers in the modular but mostly sit back and enjoy the performance which is total the opposite to composing music on a traditional keyboard synth.

The music thats coming out from the modular is certainly dark and without doubt experimental and mostly devoid of melodic content.....very different from what I have created in the past.  Im sure this is not for everyone.....i dont know that I actually like it but Im fascinated by the sounds produced and I can sit for a long time listening to a patch as it evolves and morphs into many different sonic shapes.

Hi Forrest,

I do have a cdbay account but the only music available there is my first electronica cd back from 2009.  Never put more up there as Im not fond of the 30 second music clips and consequently I hardly ever buy music from cdbay myself....thank you for the thought!

Im talking to Dennis at Databloem and when things with him are in place I will announce the link it.  This should help keep shipping cost down for anyone in Europe.

I just cleaned this up and removed the 2 mod grid renderings as the appear in the Modular Synth thread in the Gearheads section where they belong.  I will leave the main picture just for reference.

I shipped out 2 cd's yesterday from Florida.....one to Oregon, usa for $2.50 and one to the uk for $13.50. Over the pond is airmail, jet fuel and all thet....does mail to the west coast of the usa go by road?

A week or so ago when I shipped out cd's to europe it was $10.20 and now it s $13.50.  What the......!  This is ridiculous. Now shipping is more than the actual general cost of a retail cd.

Hopefully I can find a europe distro so no one has to pay these insane shipping costs.
