What's the use of making music if no one hears it?
Well of course it's fun to do, but since I was in the past involved in the music industry, (in a very small way I might add) everytime I make something half decent that thought of sending demos out to labels comes back. In the real world, I've long lost the stamina of doing such things, vinyl is dead (ok its not but that's another debate) and mp3 labels are ten a penny.
So back to the point, here's a track I made quite some time ago and posted on soundcloud, a few people listened and there were a couple of nice comments. So i figured I'd post it here and enable downloads on it.
So have a listen, if you like it download the wav file and put it on a cd or make an mp3 from it, whatever you like (unless you are making money from it of course)

I got fed up with the waiting times and managed to pick up an MS-20 Mini from Japan, so I figured I'd run through some of the things that haven't yet been mentioned in previous videos. Also I show how to make a cheap V-Trig to S-trig converter so that you can use normal gates to trigger the Mini. Finally a trick to use a standard cv/gate sequencer with the Mini with something unexpected as the converter!
Overall I'm very pleased with the unit, the build isn't as solid as the original but the keybed is better for sure. Still at this price there's really nothing to grumble about.
So here's the pics of the partial teardown I did, doesn't seem to be any magic points marked on the silkscreen like on the monotron/tribe but it's always possible there is something on the component side, i'll let someone else discover that ;)

Now you can order DinSync.info modules at these great stores. Of course you can still buy them direct from us here and we will still have a pre-order waiting list for the new modules when they come. So you can still be amongst the first to get them before they hit the shops.

Korg recently released an update to the monotribe OS and there has been a lot of chatter on the Muffwiggler forum (click the link for details on where to get the OS, how to install it and enable the CV/Gate)
The main drawback is that in order to get this to work you need a 4 pin mini jack. I dont have any of those around so I figured I'd just add some jacks.
Here's a few pics of the install and solder points, and a quick video demo of the monotribe being driven by a ModSeq (sorry about the camera audio).
Some points to note, first I wired up also for CV/Gate output, this is not yet fully working, I'm hoping it will in the future so I figured I'd wire it up while i was there. The Gate out does work at least (its just the sync out really)
It also seems that the sync in jack is switching, so that if there isn't a jack inserted to sync in then you wont be able to advance the sequencer with the gate in (like you could with the cable) The work around for this is that you can use the gate out (or the sync out jack) to clock your external seq then just mult that to an envelope and send it all back to the monotribe cv/gate ins. I may check this out later to see if I can add a switch.
Anyway, big ups to the muffwigglers on this one, cheers guys!

Just a quick update as the first batch of MODSEQs is now shipping. Mails have been sent out so if you were expecting one its time to check your spam folders. There's still room to get on the list so if you wish to be added drop us a line on firstname.lastname@example.org
