Memory Palace Specs & Feature List


#1

Basic lists of features and specs, as well as some simplified routing diagrams have been posted here:

Memory Palace will have the same user reference card type of document as recent Expedition modules posted in PDF format before release. Please feel free to comment here with any questions.

I would like to know if all buttons are toggle or if make sense or ita possible to have some buttons as momentary (effect its only active wjile button its been pressed, when release the video returns to original state) another question I have is effects/mode buttons can be used with some sort of transition or easing or instantaneous the change when the button is pressed? if so th transition speed could be configured?

I would like to know if all buttons are toggle or if make sense or ita possible to have some buttons as momentary (effect its only active wjile button its been pressed, when release the video returns to original state)

By default they are all 2-state toggle based parameters, but I don’t see a problem with putting momentary behavior as a configuration option on our development list.

another question I have is effects/mode buttons can be used with some sort of transition or easing or instantaneous the change when the button is pressed? if so th transition speed could be configured?

No, all of the transition based parameters are on the sliders with CV inputs already. The buttons are only used for parameters that have a binary state. If you want to transition from one of the binary effects to unaffected input, this is what the keyer (and alpha channel input) are designed to do. Or external compositor.

I do like what you’re suggesting – it’s similar to the intention behind the pushbutton control for the animation generator on Visual Cortex (push to transition, use rise/fall to set easing and transition speed.) But in terms of the LZX system architecture, it’s something to put on an animation envelope / sequencing module to be used as a CV source.

With the internal feedback loop, each control cascades to a series of related actions in the buffer repetitions – so there are many very performable transitions just with slow slider movements; especially moving two sliders at once, or moving one slider with LFO modulating another, etc. With analog we are used to creating or altering just a single element at once when a knob is turned, whereas in the buffer feedback context the echoes create a whole sequence of complex movement based on simple input motion.

I’m curious about powering the Memory Palace via 12V DC auxiliary power connector to “reduce drain on your EuroRack”. Does that mean you can power it entirely via auxiliary power, or would you still need to connect it to your main PSU for additional power?


#6

I’d love to know too
with the liquid tv you can power it externally but it still needs to be connected up to the euro power rails


#7

I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that the 12v dc is for the logic board and you still need to power the control board from eurorack rails, but I might be wrong


#8

My understanding, which might not be full, is that the Liquid TV needs to be attached to euro power for sync purposes, even when powered by an external 12V DC connection.


#9

You still need connection to EuroRack rails. Using the external 12V connection is for cases that might otherwise be strained on power load – when used, the EuroRack power draw drops from +450mA/-40mA to +/-40mA. If you have a EuroRack power supply that takes a 12VDC brick (like Malekko Power) you can use the same brick to power the Memory Palace and your Euro supply (Vessel makes this easy, with its internal DC barrel connector, you can just use a 1 ft’ 2.1mm barrel cable, like used on guitar pedalboards.) So essentially it’s the same deal as with Liquid TV; a way to offload the excess current taken up by the displays and digital circuitry.


#10

I have a couple of these and imagine they are up to the task.


#11

You will only need 12V 1A or so, for external 12VDC adapter. Look for the ones sold for CCTV systems. This one for example, looks great:


#12

I use the uZeus boost with my HEKs, so I think that will be good for using the Euro rails with the MP. Good to know about a good external choice tough
