I use it as a quantizer and sequencer. The circular flow is really creative and the scalebanks are well laid out and push me into sonic territory I would otherwise have no clue about.
In 1v/oct mode/Shruti scalebank lock the green channel for the tonic and swoop the blue channel around. Put an attenuated EG on scale rotate. This'll make your solo jump octaves. Kinda get a shaum raga Indian street music thing going:

Wait for it - its worth it. Nice stuff - very unique - so different from other SMR things I've heard. Will try my own experiments from this jumping off point.

Pretty cool. 8-) Must spend more time with the orange bank.

I was coming from the angle of feeding a signal into the Freq. jack to see if it came out quantized to your scale. It doesn't. But it does seem to add the two together, so I suppose you could use it as a kind of scale-based precision adder.

Update: Well, that didn't go exactly as I expected (as usual) but what a great hour's wiggling. :sb:

I'm not at my system right now so I cant check it out, but what about doing a custom scale of all the same note? Then your sequencer into freq may track properly?

Anyhoo, what's wrong with a dedicated quantizer? If you're looking for something that will do that job why not buy something that was designed to do it? IMHO the SMR's scales are tricky to get right, whereas with a quantizer you can flip any note on or off on the fly.
prolly just gonna go with a dedicated quanitize however, since im tight on funds / space I was just wondering what peoples thoughts on the SMR as a dedicated quantizer were...

Hi. I wonder if in future updates we'll see more filter types added?

Thanks. Great module. Sorry if this has been requested already.

I've been getting the slew or glide when using the 1voct inputs. Haven't tried the outs yet but the glide has been driving me nuts. There must be a way to stop it?

^^^^^^^
When in 1v/oct mode flip the post/pre switch to the right for no portamento/regular morph.

to switch off portamento you had to switch post/pre on the left, on post. But is not that! It's more like cv are slewing either i switch on/off portamento

I've tried a few switch combos and can't seem to get ride of the glide. It's like it is slewing the INPUT cv. Would really like to stop this.

i haven't tried this yet, so just spitballing here, would having morph up create this behavior?

Morph is of course down.

Still haven't sorted this issue.

Anyone else sorted this yet?

The 1v/oct works great and you still get the filter outs :tu:

This thread of mine details a big patch completely driven by the SMR:

Has anyone had trouble saving settings in the six slots? I'm running the latest firmware, and every time I save with locked notes and resonance settings--when i reload, the resonance settings all revert to zero. The scale and notes get saved just fine, but it's impossible to save any resonance settings. I have no issues locking resonance settings for any or all channels--they just don't get saved.

I’ve noticed this as well.
I wonder if it only saves certain settings and not others or if the display just doesn’t update.
For example when I save bank and scale, they don’t show properly until I touch/push the rotate knob. :hmm:

And here’s another version of my previous SMR/Chaos voice.
This time I’m splitting the sines into two groups of three and patching those into wavefolders, all controlled by chaos LFOs.
Squishy brassy goodness abounds:

Thanks for confirming, I'll play around with the settings, but I think it's a bug.

That's a wild trippy patch you posted. Always interesting to see complex generative works.

Had my 1st proper wiggle with the SMR the other night. Enjoying it very much. The SMR and DLD sitting side by side is working wonders :)

I've just noticed this; I don't know if it's new but it's really really annoying.

Did anyone find an answer to this at all?

It basically doesn't track 1/v octave in any useful way for me.

Update: going back to the original filter type via system mode addressed this for me.

I also found that the original filter is a lot louder! For tuned percussive hits it does the trick for me.

Interesting!
I'll have to try this out, if I can confirm it we may have found a bug
