4ms STS: trigger delay too short for René?

Post by Dob » Thu May 21, 2020 1:16 am

So I got this problem.

I'm sequencing with René, and even at max "trigger delay", the sample starts before the right CV is received, making the intended sample run a step late.
At max "trigger delay" I can hear that sometimes there's a different sample chosen and sample selection is uncertain, so I'm very near, in the twilight zone between 2 steps, but not quite there.

Setting the delay on the device to max makes the value "8" in settings.txt file, whereas the file itself states that the max is "10". I even tried setting it to 50 or 100, directly in the file, but I don't know if that setting gets picked up. (And it didn't help either...)

I've been thus forced to use both Maths channels to add slew to the 2 triggers. But that is obviously a workaround, I'd rather not always waste Maths on correction.

Also, I bought this module because it was made to be patched like this!
I kinda accepted that Arbhar wasn't good at it / wasn't made for tight triggering, but this module sure is.

I also looked up if I could get René's gates delayed (inside René), but I don't think that's possible?

Any thoughts?
Or do I need to contact 4ms directly? Do others have or had this issue?
