Somehow I just knew (after 3 other false alarms) that the Tetrapad still hadn’t left the factory yet... but supposedly it is now officially finished and should start shipping soon.

Here’s the manual! https://intellijel.com/downloads/manual ... .11.14.pdf

If anything uses a vector rail, you can use M3 nuts instead of M2.5. Idk about the MN Skiff, but the shared system case definitely uses vector rails. Control sells the nuts. Just got some for my case so I can actually use the knurlies. Amazing that I've spent at least an hour research different screw options. The things that euro makes you do...

Tetrapad......mah dick

Sequencer thoughts:

Metropolis - Cool. But meh. Was initially hesitant w the screen (trying my best to avoid screens) and add that to me not really digging the sliders and gate buttons (thought I would :idk: ) I decided to try something else.

Moskwa - Hard no. Didn't mesh w this one at all.

Rene: Yesssss. Initially this was my top choice to try but I was a bit intimidated by it so I held off. Loooove this module. I'm only at the basic stuff but it's a total blast.

A sequencer feels more "personal" --like, I care more about the workflow/function (have tried some others: BSP, M32) compared to other modules at this stage of the journey.

Yay Rene :!!!:

awesome! i'm still interested in trying a Rene at some point. sorry you didna dig the Metro homie.

also, looks like the Moves used to have Super Big Issues with touch stuff like the Rene and PP's. since i'm going to put the Swarm in there, back to looking at MN. woooot.

Man, I loved the Moskwa and didn't really get along with the Rene. Weird. I feel like this is pretty true:

Definitely agree on sequencer workflow being mega important. Totally makes or breaks it for me.

Over the past couple days I've been using Tempi + Maths to create a shuffled clock for my SQ-1 and goddamn I feel like this has been a key ingredient I've been missing.
Short example, not the best but I cut out the shuffle a couple times (0:44, 1:10) and the difference it makes is staggering (to me):

So, I just scooped up a Ladik S-188 :yay:

The issue that a lot of cases have with Pressure Points and Rene is the Mean Well power bricks they use. Basically, they have some sort of grounding issue that makes touching them hell. I know make noise uses Volgren bricks and that there's a few others out there people have used with success. There's a couple good threads in Muffs I can link to in the morning if anyone's interested.
