Favourite Modules to pair with Just Friends

Post by peachesandbacon »

I've just picked up a Just Friends and it's wonderful.

However the myriad of different options and modes are breaking my brain slightly.

What are some of peoples favourite modules to pair it with, and your favourite way to use it.

Thanks for the tips!

Just Friends is a total Rock Star. Its oscillator mode is pretty darn amazing, esp when you process each output differently ie vca/filter/wavefolder/verb etc. goes well with a RXMX too, or other scan/pan mixer

If you’re comfortable with coding (or aren’t but are ok to learn) Teletype is Just Friends’ best friend. The Just Type series is an amazing tutorial and may be one of the best simple ways to get polyphony into Eurorack.

Teletype for sure. And adding a 16n Faderbank of some kind to that (I like Tesseract Sweet Sixteen) for control is great for sequencing or harmonic oscillator level sliders.

Planar or Frames or Morph 4 for mixing outputs -- though they only have 4 inputs rather than 6 you can still do a lot with that.

I find I often have a lot of cables from JF patched into my A130-8 octal vca. Sometimes as sound source and sometimes as modulation.

+1 on Nearness.

Time Wizard and/or any clock modulator or multi-channel trigger generator. Especially fun in LPG and short envelope modes.
