Doepfer R2M Ribbon Controller

This thing is great!
The variable pressure sensor works really well for controlling pitch bends and the position (pitch) sensor can be quantized to many different scales with variable resolution (# of octaves).

However, my main interest in buying it in the first place was the advertised TRAUTONIUM Mode which I cannot seem to access in mine at all!!! :x

If anyone has experience with this device and knows how to access said Trautonium function I would be very appreciative.

It does spit 2 CVs and a Gate + Midi IN & OUT so I find it very useful in controlling: softsynths, Roland D-50, Metasonix TM-3, etcetera, and soon it will assist in controlling a tower of Blacet!

When controlling the D-50 I can use the ribbon and keys at the same time! The ribbon is for some reason louder though.

I just wish I could avoid the quantization sometimes and just use it like a Trautonium Ribbon :arrow: press and slide

Your not the first to have troubles getting into that mode.
I don't have one but last time I asked about it I think he pulled out the manual and turned to page 29 or 39, one of those, then showed where it was on the menu.

E-mail Doepfer and have them walk you through it.

Playing with a Ribbon is fun, I had fun playing with the Wretch Machine controlled by that controller.
