But it is what it is, and it’s a great module overall....
Actually sorry maybe i was a little rough with the Disgust thingy, but seriously it sounds so cool... im going crazy with it

No worries- it’s a good one, happy to hear you’re loving it!
Maybe you’d like to buy some of these nice used modules?

I didn’t mean to snap back there but I check this thread daily and the protracted nitpicking session was really standing out to me.
Loads of stuff for sale here (PA/US).

I'm having so much fun with this module! It sounds so good, feels so good, and is keeping me up at night!

My main "fancy" oscillator for the longest time was an Odessa, and while I did love it, I dislike comb filtering (nails on a chalkboard to me), so it kept getting left out. I know you can turn it off, but that's such a big part of it. Selling it to get a Mindphaser was a good swap, despite both being fantastic. I've honestly been happier than a pig in shit with this thing for the last few days. I could definitely do with a different knob feel... it kind of reminds me of the feel I didn't like about Sputnik stuff... but it's very smartly designed. You can get a lot out of it in ways that feel good and constructive without having to negotiate with its design too much. I almost never see it discussed on complex oscillator threads and now I've really got no idea why.

I've had my Mindphaser for a week now and I have to say that I'm super impressed! It's exceeding my expectations. While it's got so much complexity and things that it can do, it's very intuitive to navigate and not too difficult to get it where you want it. I love all the well thought out features. Those inverting buttons are an awesome idea, so simple but so useful. And the range switch for the modulator is awesome too! The knobs feel fine to me, FWIW haha.

Here is my first public recording with it. It's taking on bass duties with the ramp/saw output of the carrier running through QMMG modulated by Make Noise Contour, while also creating a really great metallic percussive sound by mixing the main out with the modulator square out through FxDf, with the 1411hz out going through another QMMG channel and the high output through 2nd channel of LxD, each controlled by Maths.



So excited to explore it more! Also keen to read what tips and tricks you may have to share, and hear what you're all doing with it now that it's in the wild a little more broadly!

Did the QR code of the manual from the package work for you? It just forwards me to the product page with the quick start picture from the back of the package.

Hi everyone.
Got my Minfphaser last week. Loving the sounds and ergonomics.
But upon watching the presentation video I noticed the LFO blue LED next to the range switch.
Mine never goes on, altho I can see that the oscillator is in LFO ranges but the led in the mod bus.

Is this normal? did it get disabled in the final release or is there something else happening?

Any input would be appreciated. Thx

Keep pushing it! Each time you push it it goes one octave, so if you push it down enough times it will go slow enough to be in LFO mode.

There is no manual for it just yet. Be mindful that this is the first batch of the module and so things like that were created with a wider release in mind. They'll get there eventually.

Puscha unfortunately it doesn't work.
Turned off sync mode, and pushed it down like 10 times. the Blue LFO led just does not go on.
Outputs are looking good tho in proper LFO territory. I can only assume that the LED is might not be soldered on properly.

Here is a video where you can see the issue, with one of the outs going to the O'Tools scope


Let me know your thoughts.
Cheers,
Paul

Yep that isn't right at all. Looks like it's only the LED, thankfully. Get in touch with Hexinverter directly, surely they will be able to sort it out easy enough.

Yes looks like it's only the LED.
Since I got it from a dealer, I already reached out to Schneiders in Berlin to see what can be done about it. Should be a quick fix hopefully.

Altho there is someone experiencing the opposite on the Hexinverter forum. LFO indicator always on.

Because I'm still waiting to receive the last shipments from production. Sorry, it's taking forever!
As soon as they're here, Dan will be getting his box o goodies. They're coming, don't worry, hang tight!

Here’s a short demo- I’ve got both PWM from the modulator side, and also varying sounds from the main PM output, both going through NE Desmodus Versio.

Maybe you’d like to buy some of these nice used modules?

The remainder of the first production run is shipping out to remaining dealers this week and next.

After that, we're still not sure when there will be more. Sometime in 2022, maybe late 2022 depending on the ongoing parts shortages.

Updates when we have real news about that.
