But listening in mono there is no change to the synth sound at all as you run through the 18 second point. Thus, the stereo chorus effect is all in the Side channel and disappears for mono listeners, leaving just the raw synth sound.

... or maybe I've misunderstood how you created the demo...
It is definitely still there - In mono I can flip the polarity of the original dry synth and it leaves the Dim D in glorious mono! It definitely doesn't cancel. I dropped the level of the chorussed half of the demo somewhat - that's the only manipulation.

Hmmm... I think I've misunderstood your demo... I'll explore further when I get a chance using the UAD version of Dim D.

It would be really nice if not everything vaguely Behringer related (and sometimes even not very related at that) wasn't all lumped into one behemoth of a thread.


Just sayin'

Don't worry - Behringer will be launching their own version of the thread in the near future, and it will be noticeably smaller thanks to mini fonts and an external supply of grumblings about numbers of keys :mrgreen:

Behringer basically selling a XOXBOX circuit w/o crediting the owner.

Won't be buying any of their bootlegs.

Looking forward to seeing their "flagship".

Not really, it's no different to using a reference circuit from a datasheet as it's an open source design so free to everyone in the same way a lot of commercial products are built on Linux (although that's different in some ways due to the GNU licence) and they have quoted where the filter circuit for the BA22? clone circuit came from in various forum posts. Plus they are going cloning said chip anyway now so it's all a bit moot.

Many have tried. The problem is that you end up in a sort of infinite feedback loop where, while pondering the merits of the biscuits you end up nibbling one, which then gets you thinking about the song again and before you know it you are in a singularity and time stops.

Of course to the unfortunates stuck in that state, nothing is amiss as they are on the way to completing the song, but to the rest of us they are frozen in that moment in time forever.

It's quite sad really. Someone should write a song about it ...

In other news I've been given a 7-11 week waiting time on my Berry One, but I'm not fussed - plenty to be getting on with in the meantime and it'll be a nice surprise when it does turn up ;-)

Judging by the forum album there is just one man (or perhaps time traveling garment would be a better description) who could do the job. Step forward Dr Huge Longjohns please ...

They didn't credit the developer as is required. Forum posts don't count don't be daft.

No need to with hardware, do companies credit the designers of reference circuits in datasheets?
