1. Could we get the color scheme from the Note Value Bars on the Note Grid too? Meaning active trigger note rectangles on the grid are green, while ones without triggers are yellow.
This in particular would be a very nice feature to have :tu:

All the others suggested so far would be great too but I think this one is a big one for me. That and a Gotharman's Vocoder effect :evil:
I agree. The color scheme in the note grid would be really helpful. I can't help but want more Gotharman effects, of course.

Thank you very much for your inputs. Well, I guess that I better get some color coding made on the note grid then :)

Currently I am working on a system for adjusting an offset on all steps in a subtrack at the same time. I am having so much fun, adjusting all values on the position subtrack. This is really a deforming feature! Thanks so much to seeasound and flx for suggesting this!

Here’s another granular drone jam using only oscillators and no samples:



Have a nice weekend, everybody!
Really cool dronez!

Somebody interested in the LD3 asked me about the sequencer in another forum, so I made this quick walkthrough video of the sequencer features:

I also had a thought that came to me under the shower:

While I'm performing with the LD3, I'm always on the main screen here, so that I can use the eight parameter knobs to do their assigned thing:
ld3_main_screen.jpg
However, there is little to nothing of interest to me on that screen. The keyboard is too small for performing, even on its biggest zoom setting and I guess apart from the preset name and maybe the BPM, there is also no useful information being displayed.

So I wanted to talk about alternative screens. For example there could be four fat faders, to be assigned as simple modulation sources:
ld3_faders.jpg
... or an XY pad like on the Kaosspads, with X and Y also being modulation sources:
ld3_xy_pad.jpg
... or more information. For example a row of squares with numbers from 1-16, indication which parts are muted at the moment and which part is selected. Also the current values of the morph knobs could be displayed.

Of course I'm still a fan of this idea here as well :mrgreen:

Could you add modulation options to the C.P. page and then add a button to the main menu screen (the one with the big keyboard and preset and edit buttons) that just displays one C.P. color over the whole screen until the user touches the display again? Like this we would have a light show on the display modulated by our sequences :rastanana:

Just throwing this out there for discussion :guinness:

No idea what I did, but now I have a CPU indicator in the display of my Tiny LD.
It's been driving me crazy.
is there any way to turn it off?

There is a modulation source touchY for touching the main screen and getting Y data with keyboard data. Not quite the same as X/Y (which would be nice!) but useful.

And flx loving the vids! Keep them coming.

Enjoyed the sequencer video. Its nice to see it all laid out in such a structured fashion. Inspiring stuff.

Really like this idea^ :yay: Would open up new possibilities for performance for sure.

Quick question. How do you accurately set up incoming, 1v/oct cv, to a part’s pitch? I’ve tried all kinds of things and I’m definitely a little lost here. Thanks for the help!
Didn't get a response to this question, but I'm curious if anyone has been able to send quantized 1v/oct cv to an LD part's pitch. :hmm:

i alway LOVE CPU metter on numeric machins, does anywon have go to more of 60% of the cpu ?
even my more complex patch (with many oscilatore and fx) i never beat this limite

Oh right! But it still plays a keyboard key then as well, doesn't it? So one can't use the touchY data alone?

Bumply as far as I know there isn't a way to take 1v/oct CV to LD3 input and get the LD3 oscillators to track it.

Probably the best you could do is use an external CV sequencer that you could just set arbitrary CVs to get the individual pitches you want on LD3.

You could play with some sort of multiplication/offset on the CV before it goes into the LD3 to get it to approximately track that one octave.

BUT even if you got this to work the biggest issue for your application is the Pitch Mod amount of full 512 only bends the pitch at most an octave (and I think its less than that) So you really wouldn't get many notes doing that.

I think you'd be better off using the internal LD3 sequencer or a midi keyboard though if you want even tempered stuff.

Where the CV ins really shine in my opinion are bringing external clocking to the LD. And since the LD3 can also output this external clock to midi you can then sync external midi devices such as drum machines to your analog rig. I've done some fun things with masterclock pulses modified by multiple lfos into the LD3 to get really weird sequence bursts.

Its also fun bringing in slow evolving voltages like that from a source of uncertainty.

When it first came out the CV/outs weren't quantized either until Gotharman added the 1vs mode (THANKS AGAIN FOR THIS FLEMMING!) which is wonderful for allowing you to sequence external gear via CV out.

AHH yes that is a wonderful addition to the sequencing! Great idea. Love the all gate adjustments. The position rotate is really cool sounding too

funky!

Haha! Awesome that it remembers the values that were moved below 0 and how cool is the position track offset?! Sweet!

Thanks rayce. Yes I believe you are correct, but that is no loss as the LD3 sequencers are phenomenal and the CV ins can be put to other uses (clocks, modulation, etc). :guinness:

Just a little question to you TLD/LD3 users out there : Sometimes, when I switch betwen patches a little too fast, I get a stucked note.
Is there any other way than switching off the device to turn the note off?

Yes, press FUNC and COPY to enter the copy menu and then press EXIT (step 16), which is labeled “PANIC” on the copy menu screen.

Woah this is indeed some proper deforming. Will rotating all step positions be possible as a modulation destination? I'd imagine rotating all position with an lfo or envelope would have very interesting results. LD3 just gets better and better :love:
