  1. WTB: MB6582 Window

    Very late to the party but keep me posted if there are overstocks. I'm interested in 1.
  2. Don't forget we have a patch thread for user patches - hint :thumbsup:
  3. Sammich FM PSU question

    The build guide recommends a regulated PSU that is not a switchmode type. Is there any difference between a switchmode PSU and a switching PSU? I'm looking at this PSU. Thanks. http://www.allelectronics.com/make-a-store/item/PS-961/9-VDC-600MA-REGULATED-POWER-SUPPLY/1.html
  4. Arrived in los Estados Unidos! Muy bien!
  5. Stay tuned for some otherworldly FM insanity!
  6. Alright, just had to get that off my chest :frantics:
  7. Midibox SID - Just intonation?

    Ok thanks. I looked around in some of the OS .inc files but that was about as far as I got. I'll give it another go at some point.
  8. Midibox SID - Just intonation?

    Sure. Most music for the past couple hundred years uses equal temperament for some very good physical reasons. But for electronic music where there are no physical strings etc., just temperament/intonation can be used. It makes for more stable chords that sound nicer in some places. What happens is that certain parts of a chord (usually the third and fifth) would be micro-tuned. More info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Just_intonation and this audio example should make it more concrete http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/90/A-major-triad-equal-temperament-compared-to-just-intonation-6-2008C.ogg Sounds really great on guitars by the way...
  9. I've read through the manual a number of times but perhaps I've missed it. Is there any (relatively straightforward) way to get just intonated chords on the MB-SID family synths? I have a lot of fun with the harsh SID sounds but sometimes you want something sweet-sounding. Searched for "just chords" and "just intonation" but came up empty...
  10. Desoldering Bus Resistor [Sammich]

    Here's another tip. There is this stuff called Chip Quik. It is like solder-however, the melting point is much lower. So you "solder" this stuff onto your joints. Then heat up all joints simultaneously by lying your iron somewhat sideways. Because the Chip Quik stays molten longer, you have more time to melt all the joints. Highly recommended for difficult desoldering jobs. I have the pumps and the braids, and the Chip Quik is way better for tough jobs.
  11. Are 4x20 LCDs much better than 2x20's?

    It's nice but it's not going to be a massive difference. The extra rows show you things like a "thermometer bar" when you are changing patch values or show you what commands are above you in the hierarchy.
  12. SammichSid vs. Octatrack

    Yes, it's a lot of fun and will get more so. :thumbsup:
  13. SammichSid vs. Octatrack

    Title says it all. The sammichSID provides all parts except drums.
  14. Mixing and matching SIDs?

    I was under the impression that it is not easily possible to mix the 6581 and the 8580/6582 in the Sammich. There are a number of jumpers which set the overall power to 9V or 12V.
  15. Iridescent SammichSid

    It's around here somewhere. Thanks for reminding me. I completely forgot about it... Paint fumes I suppose :frantics:
