Jark's Rockmodules Lineup Guide

Post by rbc » Wed May 27, 2015 4:20 am

I thought I'd bring this over from the "Getting Started" forum for discussion:

http://www.rockman.fr/Articles/Rockman_Hookup.pdf

My rig goes a slightly different way. I use 3 foot-pedals to control the Sustainor channel, volume and the Chorus/Delay bypass. I'd like to be able to toggle the Sustainor volume, more than the Chorus/Delay mode select. I'm also going to try to go with Sustainor effects loop EQ's only for now. If it gets much more complicated, I'll probably use a MIDI Octopus to control things.

Just something little that bothers me in the article: he says "The separation in two channels is always achieved by a chorus." You could get a stereo feed by simply doubling the mono signal and feed both sides of a Stereo Echo, or just put a Chorus/Delay (in the Delay setting) on half of that signal as well.

Just nitpicky, I know. :?

I suppose always is kind of a strong word. He did limit the demonstrated configurations to mixing stereo with the Rockmodules. Things get a lot more interesting when you start mixing the outputs at the outboard mixer. I did that with my cascaded chorus/delay configuration:

Having been a part of the 80s "big rack" revolution, I guess I have always seen a million ways to do things, and a million different products to help do those things. Simple things like a splitter or a small mixer can add to the equation.

Most times it's just those simple things that take the user from 'basic setup' to 'holy smokes this is complex'. :lol: Being that Jark wanted a simple and basic beginer guide, we'll leave it at that.
