1979 SVG?

Post by adneumann » Tue May 18, 2021 9:18 pm

Hi.. Has anyone heard from 1979, re: SVG? I put in a couple emails, but no response...Only dropped a $100 deposit, but as they used to say,
"Enquiring minds want to know"! tnks, andrew.

I was kind of wondering myself. I figured with all the shortages of everything these days we’d end up waiting a while

I never heard of SVG but I guess 1979 = greyscales panels = sempervirent. He is a busy guy but he is trustworthy. I have traded or sold modules before without problems. He has been a member here for a very long time.

Thanks guys, a combination of part shortages, assembler retooling, and general chaos in the system have delayed this module release but it's the #1 priority for 1979 right now and will be released ASAP.

1979 SVG update

Post by sempervirent » Mon Jun 21, 2021 2:06 pm

Here's a quick snap of the prototype... I want to run another set of boards to validate some changes but it's substantially complete at this point.

If you're interested please make a preorder deposit at https://1979.ws/stochastic-voltage-generator/ to reserve one.

If you're unfamiliar, this module is a Buchla-compatible version of Marbles by Mutable Instruments, which is a complex random voltage generator with clock sync, looping, quantization to custom melodic scales, and other capabilities: https://mutable-instruments.net/modules/marbles/

TBD based on final manufacturing costs, but will be comparable to other 1979 modules.

I went to your site yesterday to see what *any* of the other modules cost. Could not find a price for anything, anywhere. Can you please point me to where the other comparable prices may be found? Thanks!

Every module page has a price at the top, maybe your browser has a plugin installed that's interfering with the website.

If you use Adblock, NoScript, Ghostery, or other similar plugins, they could be blocking some page elements. Should look like this:

Thanks. I just posted a video with the SVG in the main 1979 thread. The hardware/firmware is basically finished, doing another prototype to capture some hardware changes from the first rev and after that we'll be ready for production.

Nothing personal here... but your demo of the SVG essentially told me NOTHING about what the module is capable of doing! Most of the demo time is documenting twisting dials on the module to its left to alter sounds ....Maybe some S/H stuff going on but, c'mon....Give me a demo that show the capabilities of the module...I still have NO idea what it's modulation/CV capabilities are...VERY disappointed.....

But you pre ordered one? It would seem like you should have an idea of what it is already since you pre ordered one. I thought the video was just showing us that it is being worked on and its getting close to completion which I am grateful for

No, that is not the issue... the demo simply shows a couple pots being twisted on the SVG, and more pots being manipulated on the osc; but the "cause and effects" are simply not clear at all...Whatever..anyhow their Digital Resonator is a mainstay in my system ..I'll just leave it at that.....

Its not a demo though :despair:

There are lots of demos of mutable marbles you could go watch until someone makes a demo of this I think thats all we have for now

What are the main points of differentiation in comparison to the 266e? I really don’t inhabit Euroland.

Drew, Kent, go watch DivKid's review of the Mutable Instruments Marbles on YouTube. All your questions will be answered. Mutable Instruments are really their own ecosystem apart from Euro, and Wes is a SAINT for bringing them into Buchla land!

Good question. Arguably all functions of the 266 could be achieved with SVG/Marbles (other than the AC noise outputs and preset compatibility on the "e" version). The SVG builds on the 266 by adding:

1. Master clock. Events occur in relation to a common tempo. In this way it's more like a random sequencer with 7 outputs than discrete submodules which have no correlation. The internal master clock (Rate knob) can be replaced by external clocks on both the T and X/Y sections, which can further be processed by a clock divider/multiplier function on the T and Y outputs.

2. CV Recorder. The Recall feature (labeled "Deja Vu" on Marbles) lets you lock the last 1-16 steps into a repeating loop and optionally rearrange/randomize those steps. Gates (T) and voltages (X+Y) can be locked independently or simultaneously. The SVG (unlike Marbles) also provides a way to set a specific loop point and reset the loop to that point when a reset pulse is received.

3. Waveshaper. Morphing between smooth/slewed shapes to sharp-edged S&H style shapes to quantized musical scales, without repatching.

4. Quantizer / Shift Register. The X outputs can be quantized to one of six musical scales, all of which can be reprogrammed and stored as presets within the module. Quantization can also be performed on external CVs, and if external processing is used with an external clock on the X-CLK input the X outputs will also function as a shift register.

The manual for Marbles reads like a physics textbook at times but it's required reading for this complex module:

Thanks Reed. Yes, there are lots of Marbles demos online, this one is over an hour:

I have a Marbles and it’s an AMAZING module. Will be amazing in Buchla. I highly recommend it!

Fwiw many of us do really appreciate & enjoy your development-status vids. It's fun to get a glimpse of the works in progress.
