I honestly haven't use it much in creative ways. I like that the build quality (knobs for example) feels solid and it sounds good. But I am wondering if I would have prefered something like a Bionic Lester or Rossum Morpheus for example. It also isn't exactly an hp sensitive module. But yeah I still like it but am not like over the moon about it.

cool - thanks :thumb:

i see mentions of it online and some elevate it into mystical mojoz territory. i do like the way it sounds in demos tho....

i feel like my filter ear is a little weird. things like the Synth Tech E440 and Rossum Evolution that are gushed over, when i listen to demos I'm like errrrrr.

things i've loved like the Analogue Systems RS-110 seem to have been buried by the shifting sands....

part of it is that i don't really enjoy the resonance sounds of a lot of filters - i do like glitchy nonlinearities and distortion, but that acid squelch thing isn't part of my DNA - i'd just as soon keep the resonance full off on many of these unless they're gonna get weirderer than they do....

tho i do like the Radigue slow picking out harmonics thing (curse you Uli and your 2500 series) :idk:

i think one of the appeals of the Gemini is supposed to be its ability to do the vintage spacy thing but enhanced by the stereo and mixing/mod options :snax: sounds alright to me, but the price in both coin and hp does seem high.... as far as stereo filters, my ear likes the sound of it more than Blades or QPAS; not sure on Dipole.

Morpheus is amazing for what it does, but to me its more of a body/resonance box with morphing, than it is a standard filter (tho that can be done too)

you have to be really careful with input gain (and maybe other factors like impedance) - there've def been others (betters) who've given up on it in frustration over digiclipping....

Bionic Lester looks really unique and sounds amazing, especially the glitchy weirdness attainable - had relegated it to the don't-look file because of cost and because i was salty over the discontinuance of the v1 which was a totally different architecture i really wanted to try, but i have to admit it is rising fast to the high end of my filter want list :snax: easier because i've basically ended my analog filter hunt now and can get back into the digiweirdness :joy:

Pretty sure I'm going to pick up a Maths and QPAS shortly if I can find some decent prices. Been kind of flipflopping between the QPAS or 2 Mutable Ripples.

Also, finally got a 3D printer and am going to try to print some custom blank panels. Just have to order some interesting filament first

Do post results, I’m interested in what can be gotten out of a 3D printer.

Ended up getting some purple filament in the mail and immediately decided to try to print some panels with it. Turned out amazing! I wasn't expecting the sparkly finish at all!

The tolerances were a bit off and the bolts barely fit through the holes. Not sure if the issue is my printer setup, the print settings, or just the files I downloaded, but it worked out. Just printing the last panel to fill up my rack now

Eventually I'm going to print a bunch of custom stands for all my gear. Might try to design a portable case that the HEK can fit in to print as well. Open to any other ideas too!

sexxxxy bits. WORK IT.

got the Enner in. i liiiiiike it so far. i wanted to love the Stereo Field, couldna click with it. Enner makes way more sense to me.

That’s right, have you tried any pictures on the plates? Should be doable with depth right?

Haven’t tried any pictures or anything, but that would absolutely be possible. These are just models I grabbed from Thingiverse, but there were a couple other models on there with 3D designs and pictures

well, dang man. Get some patterns or pics with depth on there in diff color material and I'm sold. I need a 3D printer :lol:

You could even do 3D printed lithophanes and put some LEDs in your case for backlighting

murrrrf. Torso T-1 is pretty damn neat. it can do entered patterns, Euclidean patterns, or a combo of both. super easy interface, quick to get one's head around.

first nooble -
