Re: Polyend Preset

This module is indispensable to me even though it could have been executed more comprehensively. For instance, slew as a global effect is just insulting. It's not even per channel, when it needs to actually be per channel, per step, which would be a great addition to the main functionality of the mo...

Re: ALM Squid Salmple - 8 channel CV and audio sampler

What do people think about mapping sample slice cv selection to v/o semitones? If not as the default, as an option.

Re: ALM Squid Salmple - 8 channel CV and audio sampler

When the gate goes low in gated looping mode, the sound just immediately cuts off. This sudden change in audio amplitude often creates a popping or clicking sound. Do you realise if you set the a Decay value (under Env) it will add a release envelope and not immediate cut off when gate goes low ? I...

Re: ALM Squid Salmple - 8 channel CV and audio sampler

In fact it's really important.. There needs to be a release envelope on volume every time a sample is cut short by retrigger or chokes or whatever. This will get rid of pops.

Most samplers get around this by adding a release envelope in audio amplitude, so rather than just suddenly cutting out there is a quick...

Re: ALM Squid Salmple - 8 channel CV and audio sampler

I would find gated playback with a release envelope useful. The gated looping currently produces pops becuase there is no release envelope.

Re: 1010 Music Bitbox - Sampler/Looper

Thinking of swapping out my squid Salmple for a bitbox. Can someone confirm that I can have a large file (3 minutes or something) with slices to make a bunch of loops on a single cell? And how is the sound quality?

Re: Best random generator for musical phrases

Marbles. The ability to stretch and bias your sequence is so powerful. It's just so fast. Having sequence length always available on the turn of a knob is another powerhouse feature. It's also amazing for very slow, gliding modulations which would be impossible to do with LFOs (to replicate it you w...

Re: ALM Squid Salmple - 8 channel CV and audio sampler

Another feature suggestion: trigger delay, so incoming triggers can be given a few milliseconds before they are processed, to allow sequencers which send laggy CV (*cough* er101 *cough*) to hit their intended slices. Assimil8or has this feature. Would anyone else find this useful?

V/o is nice but not where the module shines. gonna have to agree to disagree on this one. Yeah, I disagree too. I like to setup patches where drum hits use 1-5 while 5-8 are setup with bass, harmony, and melody sounds that are sequenced. It allows for full compositions using a single module! But yo...

I'm really drawn to the non-traditional percussion sounds that can be got out of the WMD Fracture, such as in the below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBC6n-SiJfo I was wondering how achievable that is with the Salmple?

Re: 2hp - Play

Can somebody confirm the correct sample format for play? The manual says 16bit, 44.1khz, the website says 24bit, 48khz. Why it would need to be 24bit I have no idea.. 16bit makes a lot more sense here

Are there any plans for a sequel to this module?

It would spell doom for many othe...
