weak envelopes from interface to Eurorack

I would love to use Ableton + a DC-coupled interface (Apollo 8P) for envelopes, but it outputs envelopes with peaks less than 3V. So, compared to 10V envelopes that I can get out of modules, it feels really weak. Is there a good solution to this? Is this common with most DC-coupled interfaces? :hmm:

malfunctioning(?) Frequency Central System X Envelope

I'm looking for someone to troubleshoot and fix a Frequency Central System X Envelope. It just doesn't seem to work as it should. For example the release knob just adds in volume regardless of everything else (even if the gate is off). Besides the Attack, nothing seems to really work the way it shou...

There’s a Korg Electribe ER-1 app which is ... like an ER-1. Since the controls on that thing were never very precise you don’t really lose much by swapping it out for an iOS app.
I'll add it to the list along with KORG iKaossilator and KORG Gadget 2.

Re: amazing iPhone music apps

As I dig deeper into these apps, I'm noticing some of them are iPad only. Here they are in two categories: iPhone & iPad Fugue Machine - $5 Ruismaker FM - $5 Ruismaker Noir - $10 Ripplemaker - $9 (more from Bram Bos Ruismaker) miRack - $10 AUM - $20 Glitchcore - $4 Bleass delay and reverb - $6 each ...

I erroneously may have an iPhone Xs soon (a bad mix of teenagers, deception, and costly restocking fees). So, I'm looking for apps where I could really tinker with sound or sketch out music, and later record/transfer the sounds or midi for use in a computer DAW. I'd be particularly interested in app...

These are wonderful! Just when I was getting back into Ableton (mainly for M4L devices), you convince me I should give Bitwig more time.

Here is a sound based spectrum files created from Fairlight samples which are used then to set the frequency and amplitude bands of a modal filter that is pinged by a single pulse and then feed into a tape delay.

I've used PureData + Automatonism in the past few years, with pretty good results.

one big pet peeve of mine in electronic devices are faders that are multinational so that they control a different set of values depending on what 'page' your on. i hear you. i love my rene2, but it has 3 different "pages" for the 16 encoders... so you can easily get lost on what values are on each.
