That's right, it requires a manual action. That's totally fine by me though, as it still turns tuning 4 different envelopes to the right shape and lenght while playing live into just 1 button push.
Absolutely, that button push would be super helpful. Thanks for confirming my read of the manual!

Re: Xaoc Zadar, Quadruple Envelope Generator + Nin expander

Most of the problems with faulty encoders in Zadar arise from mechanical problems, we are solving this with some additional washers. Also we've changed supplier for the forthcoming batches. I know it looks like plague, but the problem is with just small percent of all Zadars we've sold. Optical enc...

Re: Xaoc Zadar, Quadruple Envelope Generator + Nin expander

Are the "bad" encoders still present in new Zadars or is this only on older modules out in the wild? I'm really considering the Zadar for the future but keep seeing ones go up for sale that "have the bad encoders". Hard to say without more stats from Xaoc but I must admit that this would be a modul...

Re: Xaoc Zadar, Quadruple Envelope Generator + Nin expander

On the topic of the encoders: I do wonder what the incidence rate is overall, as a percentage of shipped units, and what the mean time to failure works out to. It may be the case that we only hear about a vocal minority experiencing failures or it may actually be that the majority (or at least an ou...

Re: Xaoc Zadar, Quadruple Envelope Generator + Nin expander

One important difference for me is that the Zadar supports saving and recalling envelopes. I think only the Quadigy can do that as well in a small quad-envelope package? Opens up a lot of doors for live performance for me. I noticed and appreciated the preset functionality in the Zadar manual but d...

Re: Xaoc Zadar, Quadruple Envelope Generator + Nin expander

they're very different but I assume they get compared regularly (alongside Stages and Quadigy and a couple others) because they're the most HP-efficient path to having lots of voltage-controllable envelopes with flexible curve shaping and without cramped ergonomics. there are other advantages to du...

That they are, and I often plumb them through my 321 and other similar modules much as you would expect. I too would love a New New Pam’s with a 10 volt range with optional per channel -5 volt offset.

Re: Xaoc Zadar, Quadruple Envelope Generator + Nin expander

I must admit that I’m failing to understand how Zadar and Quadra(x) could even be in the running against one another; they’re just so different. Is it perhaps certain specific envelopes of the former versus the burst function of the latter? If not that, and rather just that both are quad modules, th...

Re: Worng Vector Space vs NLC Let's Splosh

Vector Space produces outputs based upon relatively straight-forward relationships between the inputs. I use it not unlike a logic module, ala “patch this jack here for an output that is high when these two inputs are high but that input is low, with the output expressing those related levels” and i...

Re: SMR Just Intonation Outputs Octaves Progressively Sharp

An interesting start to a thread that I’m definitely going to bookmark.

I love my T43s but this is one reason among others that t...
