Speak & Read & Talko by Deladriere

TALKO1Finally had a moment to try both of these modules head to head!  Talko kicks much ass!  With all of the CV control and the fact you can customize the samples using the original TI sample conversion software, what’s not to like.  Plus no harming of any Speak & *’s has to happen! Long live the TI-99/4A! The Speak & Read says ‘here’ and ‘level’ only throughout this entire demo. Everything else is the Talko!!

Moog Minitaur Eurorack module

Well, since there was no good news from Moog this year at Namm regarding Moog Eurorack modules, I guess I will move along my Moog Euro obsession by making my own!  Next up the Minitaur.  This has been the easiest to convert over to the euro standard so far.  Makes me think Moog is just toying with the euro crowd at this point. Let’s hope they are working on modules for us euro freaks.

Moog MF-1001 Eurorack module

Demand for Moog euro is growing.  Here is a converted MoogerFooger I just finished.  These Moog guitar pedals can be converted to fit into the euro format, but there is some real effort in doing so.  However this has to be the creamiest filter I have ever heard, so the effort is justified:)  I might do a run of these conversions.  Up next, possibly the MF-103 Phaser.  If it sounds as good as the filter than again the effort is justified:)

Korg enters Euro-world, well kind of;)

KorgMKP2EurowebKorgMKP2Eurorackweb

How much fun is this?  Take a new Korg Mini KaossPad 2 and customize it to fit a eurorack modular.  I hope Korg is watching, because they could easily double the price of their current offering just by adding a couple of necessities and putting it behind a panel.  I added attenuation knobs of the incoming left and right channels and then added an amp to both outgoing channels to boost it to modular levels.  I also added a latching switch to the mic input, so you can use it as an effective 3rd channel in.  Using the hold feature is like setting two pots instantly, so fellow wigglers that kinda changes the game as far as immediate performance of your effects in euroland:) Before you write this off as cheesy, look at the list of features this little guy has and compare it to any of your current eurorack modules.

Product Highlights:

Control and modulate a wide assortment of cutting-edge effects with the intuitive touchpad interface

MP3 player with microSD card slot for audio data storage/exchange; add effects to audio without additional equipment!

100 effect programs ideal for putting your own “touch” on any live performance

Virtual crossfader for transitioning between onboard media files and audio inputs. Combine with an external media player – or another Mini Kaoss Pad 2 – for DJ-style performances!

3 Program memory locations instantly recall favorite effects

Includes powerful Looper, Vinyl Break, and Ducking Compressor effects distilled from the Kaoss Pad Quad

Internal mic and external audio inputs for input flexibility

Record performances – with effects performances included – and save them to microSD

LAST run of NES carts available now!

lastrunofnescarts

These are just getting too time consuming to make, so it’s time for one last run.  In this last round I have included special carts that have a cool new ROM from David over at PLOGUE called livenes.  It allows direct control over the registers in the APU directly.  Scroll down to the end of the page to get directions on how to modify your NES gamepad so you can control it directly with your eurorack modular synthesizer:)
