Watch out! I just nuked 1-post user "gear101" after receiving five different complaints over the course of about 20mins that he's sending PMs to people offering to sell gear. Seems pretty fishy! I'm sure he'll be back under a different name but with the same old game. Be careful! Thanks to everyone who let me know about this guy.

I am using Ableton Live with MOTU 828mk3 and ES-3. In Live I created one audio track and one midi track. In the midi track I inserted the SilentWay voicecontroller_vsti plugin and routed its outs to my first 2 ADAT channels (labeled 15/16 in Live). In the audio track I routed the input from my modular to the voicecontroller_vsti plugin sitting in the midi track.

On the modular I simply have channel 1 of the ES-3 plugged into my Z3000's CV IN (all knobs are 12'o clock). Square wave is patched directly out.

I hit the calibrate button in SilentWay and all I get is 2 octaves. For those 2 octaves the calibration seems accurate. Like this:



What am I doing wrong? Any help would be much appreciated.

Likewise in Cuemix or whatever it is the 828mk3 comes with?

Ah yes, I had some levels turned down in cuemix because otherwise the signals coming down would blow up my headphones. So I put them all back to 0db and unplugged the headphones. Now I get this:



Why is the calibration so sensitive to loudness?

That discontinuity in the middle happens when its calibrating the last bit of the high frequencies. It looks like it wraps around at some point and overwrites the middle part.

In the Voice Controller's Output Matrix, try turning the pitch channel down to 0.5 (from 1.0) and calibrating again.

That worked. Now I have 7 octaves. BTW, where does silentway expect my oscillator to be tuned before calibrating?

It expects nothing - it should be able to cope with whatever it happens to be set to.
