Exper I need your help once again!
As I'm about to order everything I want to make sure that, at least in your opinion, a TPS80W Triple Power Supply – TYPE B will work with an Eastwick Aero Black case. I asked London Modular but they won't make a statement about it since you need to screw the PSU on the case and they don't do it.
Also, will I need anything else like internal cables or power adapters of any sort that don't come with the PSU or the modules?

Cheers!


The 'new' version doesn't need 5V but the old sure does, eh?


I have two feature requests:

1) What i am really missing is a possibility to flag modules I own.
That parameter added to the search options would considerably ease the burden of searching.
As bonus, in the case the above is implemented, a button kind of "Generate rack with all my modules" would be nice to have.

2) Right now a rack is either public or private. All or nothing. If i want to discuss a private rack with a buddy, i need to download the image and send it to him. What would be handy would be the possibility to give "view rights" on a rack to specific members of MG.

Yes, this is a really useful feature! Thanks a lot.

Just put a synthrotek ring mod kit behind the panel. Easy. Be aware that you should strengthen the panel with perfboarded jacks. Also the mounting holes are off center for regular non sliding bolts - doepfer cases basically.


Hi Richard, it's nice to put a face to all those tasty patches I've collected with my soft synths! Thanks and Kudos! Dig the performances!


@peff, any chance you'd build this one for other folks? Message me if so!


Looks awesome! Really dig the rack as well!



gonna install da bees tonight and wish there was a bees-faceplate if its as good as it sounds.

It doesn't require a different faceplate. All the physical inputs, outputs and controls are the same as the official Braids firmware.

yeah sure, but da bees looks and sounds better


I just bought a Seq8 kit from @bj_gzp and everything went great. quick delivery. friendly communication.

I sold a Seq8 kit to @Dominikeddie. He asked to hold, and transferred within the agreed time. :)
I would hold another module for him.

haven't had time to install just yet, but da bees seem to take care of the all issues i have with my old braids and more.
: better envelope/lfo(those original curves suck), open cv routing destinations and the meta sequencer will make me keep the thing.

glad i put da bees into my virtual rack here before it got deleted


Owners and potential owners of Braids may be interested in Bees-in-the-Trees, which is alternative open-source firmware for the Braids module. Bees-in-the-Trees adds lots of internal modulation capabilities, extends the range of external modulation destinations, and even provides a simple step meta-sequencer, all running inside your Braids. Full details, installation instructions and compiled firmware images are available at http://timchurches.github.io/Mutated-Mutables/.


I have unlisted the module formerly known as Bees in the Trees. It won't pop up in the module browser anymore.
It's not easy to delete it completely without messing up racks from users but I think it's o.k. to have a reference here in the forum what the discussion was about.
@Bennelong.Bicyclist: I am sure many people are interested in this, so it would be great if you mention it in the Braids Thread. This way it will show up on the Braids detail page as a comment, too.
Thanks all, I think we have cleared it up.
-- modulargrid

@modulargrid, OK, that's fine, many thanks for fixing this. @TidalWaveform, I wasn't annoyed, just concerned that people might form the wrong impression of what Bees-in-the-Trees is. In particular, it isn't a product, it isn't for sale, and it isn't officially associated with Mutable Instruments in any way. I'll add a comment about Bees-in-the-Tree to the Braids module entry.

Cheers,

Tim C


Thanks for dealing with it, both of you!

Hi, I'm the author of the Bees-in-the-Trees alternative firmware. I don't want the impression given that it is an official Mutable Instruments product, because it isn't, nor that is a product at all - it is experimental firmware. Nor does it have a price - it's free, so I don't want people thinking it costs $399 either. Finally, the information provided is an ill-chosen cut-and-paste from an earlier version of the firmware project page. I agree with @modulargrid: I'm happy to provide a suitable comment on the Braids entry, but I really don't want Bees-in-the-Trees to have its own duplicate module entry. It isn't a module. The Sheep alternative firmware for the Mutable Tides module is different because it is written and published by Olivier Gillet of Mutable Instrument himself, and he is even selling an alternative panel for it. There is no alternative panel for Bees-in-the-Trees, because it doesn't need one, but the Bees-in-the-Trees entry gives the distinct impression that there is. For all these reasons, I'd be grateful if the entry for Bees-in-the-Trees could be removed, please.

Tried to delete it, other folks are already using it in racks so the system won't let it. Also, apparently some of the documentation copied directly from the project page is either wrong, misleading, out of date or otherwise bad, and the author wants it taken down...

So, admin, you will need to delete it, it won't let me.


come on guys, let the sheep and bees modules live on the grid. you might wanna put a braids next to your bees ;)


First Euro Rack design. Your feedback would be much welcomed.


This is valuable info for sure but I see a problem with duplicate too. I think it would be better to attach the Bees in the Trees info to Braids or as a forum entry linked to the module.
Just "comment" the text to Braids and a forum entry will automatically generated.


We have one for Sheep, so I assumed it was ok...

-- TidalWaveform

Yes, but just think about what we gain from it? It's really still just Braids, and now we have multiple entries to keep in sync with regards to power and so on.

Do we really need a separate entry for different firmware? The module looks the same regardless...


Thread: Change Log

minor cosmetic changes to the module detail view


damn this looks nice! gonna try it for sure :)


Via http://mutable-instruments.net/forum/discussion/5320/braids-envelope-help/p1

Audio output of Braids into the audio input of the VCA.
CV output of an envelope generator into the CV in of the VCA.
Trigger output from your CV source (MIDI to CV etc) into the envelope’s trigger input.
Shaped sound appears from the audio output of the VCA.


So you can keep track of which is which if you're running both the stock firmware and the Bees patch on two different Braids.


I forgot the #rethoricalquestion tag. ;)


Yea. Manufacturers (if they care enough) should have the final say as far as info/pics for individual modules.

And I agree. These newer mutable images are washed outed and flat looking. The previous ones looked nicer.


Hi there!

This is my first case and the one I use now:

http://cdn.modulargrid.de/img/racks/modulargrid_56060.jpg

I'm looking to build a second case with a 7U 84HP configuration and I'm thinking of something like this:

http://www.modulargrid.net/e/racks/image/156555.jpg

First, I'd like to note that I'm trying to keep things musical here and that's the main purpose of my modular setup, but I don't know if I'm going too conservative here and I'd like to hear suggestions on other modules that could allow me explore other areas and expand my creative tools while keeping things musical and, also important to me, an "East Coast" approach. There are some modules there I don't have any doubts about like the Atlantis and the Mutable Instruments stuff; also, I love my Eowave stuff on the lunchbox case, so that's why I keep adding of those for this one; but I don't really know about the need for others like the uJack (I can live with minijack to jack headphone converters) a new analogue osc (Eowave Titan) or the need for two mixers ... Soooo ... please help!!

Thanks :)


Because everyone can edit anything, Gridlers are not tired to upload their favorite image and overwrite the existing one.
Thats far from ideal in this case. There might be an update which locks the Edit mode for modules where the specs are manufacturer approved ...


Tune in video is awesome!
-- solitud

Thank you Solitud! This tuned is based on a riff made with this modular rack. Then various arrangement tracks have been added in LPX, including some more sounds made with this rack.
Take care!


I would happily pay for a 5 row 126 HP rack. Happily. PM me your Paypal address, it will be on the way immediately.

edit: I am now a horned pony, nm :)

Swap Rows

Unicorn members can now easily swap entire rows in the planner.


A way to "star" (GitHub style) a module would be a great way to keep track of interesting modules.
-- Arko

I think we had similar requests in the thread on Muffs. A list for favorite or owned modules which is also accessible in the planner for quicker drag'n'drop. This might come.


I had the same issue with my unit. It was my first stereo mixer,but i sold it and went for a Unify.

A Eurocrack Pusher: "The first time is for free" ;)

What's up with the module's image?
I think the original one published by Olivier looks better but it keeps changing... :/


I am still not sure where the benefit of multiple states is or what is overall different in comparison to just copy a rack?


Tune in video is awesome!



I like the idea of having multiple states for a rack.

Especially when trying different module positions within a rack.
I do a lot of copies just to re-shuffle some modules. Having several states would be great in this context.
I suppose this should be easier to implement as the initial request to have different modules for the same rack.
What i ask for relates to the same set of modules, just different "coordinates" for them in the rack.

EDIT: I just realise this may have a bad impact on selling Unicorn accounts, because users do not need multiple racks to try out variations anymore. Just make it Unicorn only :) Another good reason to go "pro" hehe

A Eurocrack Pusher: "The first time is for free" ;)

The Facebook of Modulars!
In general I like the idea but in the past most attempts to get more user interaction were not so successful.

I replaced the original module comment section nobody used with the forum which is hardly used either.
I removed the general user activity feed from the homepage for privacy and performance reasons.
Nobody recognized this, nobody complained.
We had even a live chat at some time ...

I am not sure which benefits user get from a friend following function. I think only follow friends would not be enough, but a modular user timeline might be a little silly?

I'd like a way to actually search for users in an easier way.

Besides a little bit hidden this works pretty fine for me?

A way to "star" (GitHub style) a module would be a great way to keep track of interesting modules.

Not to be confused with a rating system (which exists), this would be only a one-star/like toggle which could be accessed as a list of starred module on a per-user basis.

The same mechanic could be applied for Racks and Patches.

Make sense?

P.S. Big ups for your work!


Ha, like social media? Not a bad idea actually. I'd like a way to actually search for users in an easier way. The problem is, many users have private racks, so you can't actually see what's going on any way.


I'm not sure if you're open to suggestions, but it'd be cool if there was a way to follow other users' MG accounts and see what they're doing with their public racks. Maybe your friends' activity logs could show up in a feed module on your personal homepage.

Thanks for the wonderful service!


Hi! Can I get some advice on this please? I am planning a rack to use for drums and drones/noiseyness kinda minimal and industrial... Am I missing anything really important or is there any modules you would really recommend? This is the rack:
