The techniques used in serial music are vaguely related to some of the techniques used the composition of cannons. The picture of Misha shows it set to C Major, so I don't think that jettisoning traditional harmony is their goal.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with jettisoning traditional harmony, on the contrary. And I do think it might be an interesting module. But is this a complaining thread or what!??!?!! ;) Subscribed to your thread, btw :hihi:

I would like to complain about the fact that there is far less complaining going in in a “complainer's thread” then in many “new module threads”…

Don't get this. This is the complainers' thread – and the less I know, the easier is complaining, right?

It's a pretty bad name, but my current vote is for Nonlinearcircuits "The Suppository of All Wisdom".
Thanks! I've been saving that module name for years, waiting for the design that fits it best. :tu:
It's a great name.

In this context, that's actually a complaint.

They sent me a replacement uJack years ago (which was really nice of them), but it's the only one I have that isn't the v2 style and the font is so childish looking. It looks like it is smiling at me.
And Make Noise panels look like they're giving me the finger.

I see what you did there.
Has anyone tried Clouds into Rings? I bet it beads the standard Rings into Clouds.

The arbitrary numbers at the end of the names of Joranalogue modules, like Fold 6 or Generate 3, or the new Delay 1, only serve to confuse me. What's "1" about the Delay? What's "6" about the Fold when it's 4hp? I'm still considering the Fold 6.

I haven’t looked at Delay 1 but the numbers in Joranalogue module names generally have meaning (8-phase oscillator, 6-stage wavefolder etc.).

Wait… This was supposed to be a satirical reverse-complaint right? Damn, I fell for it. :)

They're not arbitrary though, they serve to note how many inputs/outputs/signals can be processed by the module. Fold 6 has 3 parameters that can then be patched into themselves again if I understand correctly so 3x2 is 6.

I wish the OP-1F was cheaper.

Our Prime Minister at the time literally said this, I guess Andrew NLC figured it worthy of naming a module after.

"No one," said Abbott, "however smart, however well-educated, however experienced … is the suppository of all wisdom."

I thought it was the number of attempts Joran made to make such a module before he thought it was OK? As in, v6.0?

I think price should be related to size. Look at the new Oberheim! Of course it deserves to be $50K at least! The OP-1F? Ten pence, perhaps.

For non-Australians, Tony Abbott was in the same political party as Peter Costello. A leadership double act was on the cards for a while.

Well, this is just the start. I am waiting for Fold 2000 and Delay 2000. As we know, this number means future.

A delay that repeats sounds before they even occur !?
