any chance of changing the pots to something that is bolted to the frontpanel? wobbly knobs are a major turn-off for me ... but the sounds are nice so i'm willing to do some work if possible ...
You would need to desolder the existing ones. But i don't think it's worth the trouble. I don't find the knobs to be that wobbly. It could also be that i drilled the holes slightly smaller than the original panels.
But am not sure if that matters.
I am thinking of getting some washers to reduce the panel hole size. That should cut down on the wobble. I'll let you know how that goes...those pots are not going to last with the shafts flexing side to side like that (IMO).

Just to weigh in with a IMHO: I don't find the knobs problematic at all. I was expecting some sort of wonky screw-loose-fest when receiving the Grainshift, but haven't given the matter a second thought after installing the module.
My latest release, including vinyl!

You guys have seen this, right? James has done videos for 3 of the 4 AD modules.

Same here.
I have the grainshift and the freqshift and i haven't thought of it at all while using then. Obviously panel mounted pots are preferable but it doesn't mean they are the only useful option.

kicks and hi hats and hi hat like things going through the grainshift w/some subtle modulation of pitch and size make for really cool sounding drums..

even all mixed together i'm getting some really great sounds and it really adds some dynamics and liveliness to the drum thing i have going on and totally changes all the transients to something i really enjoy but still the kick comes through nicely.. even a puff of air type kick just takes on a whole new life.

i'll try and throw some stuff up on soundcloud soon. i've recorded about an hours worth of modular jamming in the last 2 days so i need to find a couple good chunks to share.

Just tried to run some Dio through my grainshift and it turns out that nothing can make Dio sound more "satanic" than they already do :flamey: :headbang: :flamey: :rock: :flamey: :fap: :flamey:

Can someone do a quick demo of the grainshift on drums? Preferably the bd909 / hats 909 ?


Danke!

I made a fun discovery today, if you feed 15kHz to 20kHz signal into the grainshift, it acts like a crazy cosmic/metallic sample and hold.

The pitch effects the brightness of the S&H effect
The chaos effects the depth of the S&H effect
and the size effects the rate of the S&H

the only negative point on grainshift i found was that there's no dry/wet button. so if it is patched you always hear the process. there's no such thing like a 0 position. but its a great module when you like that.

exportexport by just using a mult and mixer you can simply control the wet/dry mix. Also if you throw a vca in before the mixer you can get automated control over the wet/dry mix.

Such a great sound. Unfortunately it’s discontinued and no second hand modules to be found. Does anybody know a good alternative to this module?
