Pailo Nebulae Sound Pack 1

So i recently made a sound pack for the Nebulae Eurorack module by Qu-Bit Electronics. After downloading the new software, I notice how great it pitch tracks waveforms while freezing the sample. This made me think about how cool the module was, and also made me want to make it cooler for other users out there in the eurorack world.

This pack includes samples from the
buchla 200 skylab, the octatrack by elektron, an 18u eurorack modular, and a Tama roakcstar mahogany drum set. They were cut down in Ableton Live and converted to mono at 44.1khz 16bit. It loads extremely fast on my unit at home, so remember the sound pack has be tested to work before uploading to the downloads page. I wanted it to be easy for all users.

In this pack there are some loops, one-shots, phrases, and other sections of music from some of my last recordings. They are recorded through a Radial Workhorse 500 series rack with PreComps, and PreEQs by radial. The signal chain then went through a RME Fireface 800 into a QuadCore Mac Mini. It took a few days to collect the samples and then convert them to a correct format for the module. If you are trying to make your own sound pack and have not had luck, remember to convert the files to 44.1khz 16bit MONO for the easiest results. I tried doing higher sample rated things, but it never seemed to load all the files the way i wanted them to sound.

If you have any problems loading the packs let me know, and i can also help you upload your firmware if you are having problems.

Buchla Eurorack Adapter Mod

So I have a 40HP eurorack adapter from BEMI.
It came with 5 - 3.5 to banana. Seems after a few
weeks, i needs more banana to 3.5 converters.

Before mod
And so I took the tini jack pairs and made them; tini - 3.5 - banana with a diode to
make voltage DC (which i copied from BEMIs 3.5-banana).
