i believe so. and the plan WHICH I HAVEN'T HAD TIME FOR is to go through all the tutorial vids, but they areeeee written for 0.3?

but yeah. the Scope'ness of 0.4 looks USEFUL.

also, Pequeño Interruptor got here. lol. i always forget how freaking TINY 1hp things are.

Other news- I ordered a grid, Ansible and norns this week. Got an offer on my Verbos harm osc today. If that sells, getting a second JF so I can use one for sound and one for shape and they talk with TT. Speaking of which, TT has changed he game for me. My JF, w/‘s, 301 (and soon more) are connected via i2c and it’s sick! Using those commands in conjunction with cv and knob turns allow for more fun than I could get without the TT controlling stuff. Will update when the new gear arrives and I have time to play :))


Glad to hear you're digging this setup, I'm planning in doing the same thing when Teletypes are back in stock. Gonna put together a mini system with a limited collection of Mannequins modules to learn it inside out (it I'm not too dense :cool: )

Harmonic Osc and Scan & Pan sold last night. Second JF will be ordered tomorrow and I def want some triatts or shades in there too. We are gonna have the same rig soon haha. Also there’s a TT on reverb for 420 right now, if that’s up your alley!

As for the 301, behndy, I have both 3 and 4 on mine, as it’s super easy to flip between both. Custom units weren’t working on 4 so I kept 3 around for them but 4 has some real sick new features like routing the output of anything back to other destinations and the menu is def a different layout. There are other neat features too. I’m looking forward to 4 being stable so I don’t need them both anymore. Oh! Idk how stereo-centric your sounds are but channel assignments are much easier now too. If you want to link 1 and 2, you just press them at the same time and you’re done instead of going into admin then channel setup, scrolling, etc. :thumb:

This post convinced me to watch some demos, and finally saw a used one posted for a nice price and jumped on it. If I fall in love it will replace my Three Sisters and uVCF (had two uVCF so have been looking to ditch this anyways!)

jia. again, i've just been so caught up in LIFE THINGS that i've barely been able to sit down to musics, let alone spend a couple hours at a time learning the goodness that is the 301, but it looks like stuff is clearing up a bit.

excited to get deeper into the buggeriboo.

i'm still super digging the Morgasmo. thing is VERBOSE. but mannnnn that Dual Borg looks fun.

so like. if you tire of yours. you know. hit me up kanuckah.

Glad to have some influence. I will say, make sure you read a couple of threads on muffs about it. There isn’t a manual on it and it has some normalizations that you need to know about. They make sense, but they’ll also make you think something is broken. Also, on both sides, it might seem like the knobs do nothing on half the travel of it. That’s because noon is about 20 Hz. So it’s doing stuff, but we can’t hear it. It’s there to annoy elephants and also makes sense when you think about pinging a vactrol. You can also get around it by putting in an offset on the key or ext input.

Also, I will say I’ve talked to a few people about filters and I’ve been told to get 3 sisters in a few occasions in the past couple weeks based on what I want to do. I don’t have one, but they’re different beasts from what I understand. That being said, I’d probably be willing to buy yours off you if you wanna sell!

Nice! & thanks for the heads up on the TT... I'm super tempted to go for it, but I think I'm gonna buy it directly from Monome. Both my Grid and Ansible were purchased second-hand and I want to support them as a company; I have a lot of respect for their ideals and practices. #fuckcapitalism?

The filter I really want but I always chicken out on, is the Synthtech e370, since it’s lowpass only and a tad bit on the large side. Yeats + Behndy, is this a temporary trade you guys are doing, or more to the point, Yeats would you still like to know if I let go of my Three Sisters? I won’t know until I get my hands in the Dual Borg, like next weekend?

It's probably temporary? I'll probably know within a couple of days if I really like three sisters at the very least. And I knew Behndy wanted to try the Filter 8. Let's reconvene in a week or two? haha

Also, the next batch of Teletypes will have a small hardware upgrade that won't change anything for most people but would have made my life easier : better handling of current consumption from the USB port, so that backlit keyboards for example will have less chances of crashing TT (happened to me, had to change the keyboard) and I think more i2c connectors on the back. I got a small board for that but it's nice not to need it. I might be misremembering one of tehn's posts though, better to double check...

well butt butts. didn't mean to throw salt in your game Dark Barnstormer. just thought since the 3 Sistahs is pretty unique for a filter, some hands on might be nice before diving into one.

lol. but then YEastY offered a borrow of the Crazy Eights so. YEAH.

...... if i dig the 8 as much as i think i will, i'm down to swap permanently if Yeast Yankins is into it.
