Re: How much iPad does one need?

Last year i updated my ipad 2 to whatever the basic model was then. I've been really happy with it. iPad 2 can go up to IOS 9.35. If you get a good deal, it's a good way of trying things out, but as usual, the action favours newer, more powerful ipads. Some great programs will still run on ipad 2; b...

Re: miRack for iOS - now available

Sorry, yes-- usb works for output (though it seems to be 2 channels only), but I don't think there's any way to get audio into miRack?

So at the moment you can't use it for round tripping audio through ES8 or ES9.

Re: Gestural patching (Meng Qi style) - advice please!

If you have a dc-coupled audio interface you could use it with VCV rack to see what works for you. And the VCV rack scope is useful to see what's happening with voltage levels. One thing that may be a consideration is amplification-- many VCAs don't actually amplify, they just attenuate, and you may...

Re: Horrible docs, but good instruments (Tetra MAPS sequencer)

When i get a new piece of gear (or an IOS app), I write up my own document to remind me how to do the stuff I want to do. If I want to do more stuff, I add to it. Then when I come back and find I haven't documented what I need (cause it was oh so obvious at the time), I work it out and add that to m...

Re: handheld music making options (MIDI synced!)

If you're tempted by organelle; they've released their PD software so you can try it out on a desktop. It will run on a raspberry pi too. Lots of nice, focused PD instruments and they add new ones all the time; and of course you can make your own.

And the rozetta note/trigger sequencers all have random generation, so you can use them for cv. I've started to use M...

They do if I use the correct value of 16383 for high, and 8192 for low.

Last night 2^14 was 8192. Sleep is the answer

With respect to MPE and Envelopes, I'm trying to setup a Sensel Morph, and wanted to try an envelope, with sustain controlled by Y (cc74). The envelope setting wants a channel and CC; if this is envelope per voice, with mpe each voice is on a separate channel, so the envelope only works for 1 voice....

I've had the book for about a year, and finally got around to reading it over the last few days, trying stuff out with the modular as I read.

I thought it was excellent; very clear. Made me try out a bunch of stuff I'd never thought to try out, and clarified a number of things along the way.

Thanks.

FH-2 clocking with FHX-1 expander (SOLVED)

My FHX-1 is currently set to +/- 5V on all outputs (factory settings). Using the web configuration tool to make the FHX-1 outputs FH-2 clocks seems only to go between -5 and 0V. I tried changing the voltage range settings in the tool, but it didn't make any difference (I believe that's for devices t...

I use a USB audio interface with the ipad -- zoom u-24. It also has din midi and works through a hub (at least some hubs-- not all!).

Mostly I'm using it for my effects chain with audio in from the modular, but it works fine for IOS apps out as well, of course.

Disting Mk4 algorithm K-5 is a programmable quantizer, that uses scala scales defined on the sd card -- but only 30 of them. Scale choice is a parameter and it can be changed via a midi message.

What do you mean by responding to cv/gate? FH-1 generates cv/gate from incoming midi on the usb.

X and Y input can take clock and reset for the tempo linked functions-- arp, sequencer, tempo synced LFOs.
