Meet Kombinat Dva...

by Chris Randall

Closing in on Kombinat Dva's imminent release. I'm still not settled on the final UI (I may replace the crossover with a graphic, for starters) and things need a lot of touching up, but that's the general idea. It will have several more FSU engines, in addition to the feedback control I spoke about in the last post on the subject, and is a whole 'nother animal, really. You will be able to program it to duplicate the original, and it will include all the original's presets, in addition to its own collection.

Anyhow, that's what we're working on this week. Progress is Being Made.

You know how I feel about wet/dry controls.

I set all my controls to exact amounts. It's my version of OCD. Definitely not 815 though. I'm fine if there are no numbers, then I don't think about it, but the worst is graphic controls with exact numerical readout that you can't set to specific values. That's just being mean.

A good compromise is the old fashioned showing the high and low values with nothing in between. In general though, I'm much happier just entering values with the keyboard. I know where I want the crossover set and I don't want to deal with a fiddly knob or slider if I don't have to.

As I mix more in the box I've also become a fan of the wet/dry knob. In my mind it just becomes an aux send that I didn't have to set up. (of course my vote doesn't count because, nevemind...)

"You know how I feel about wet/dry controls."

Come on, I'm dreaming a little dream here. I find them handy, but in truth I'm perfectly okay being more disciplined in my sending.

@quantize: It is the Russian word for "two." Not a fan of ClockDVA over here. There would be no "tribute."

quantize: you're not the only one who thought of ClockDVA. I had to go watch the video for "the hacker" on YouTube. Haven't heard that since I found a 12" single buried in a discount bin in the late 80s.

New Kombinat looks great by the way!

Damn , can I just start a tab with AD ? lol
Anyway looks pretty sweet . The original has been a go to distortion for me in the past and this version looks very promising ...If it's not to late in the game it might be interesting to add a wave shaper in there somewhere to ;)

+1 for the new UI

Jawesome, I've really been getting a lot out of Kombinat lately. It has made me realize how useful multiband effects can be. I really enjoy running a sequence with a bit of dynamic range through it while modifying the crossover section.
