Thanks, and welcome to Muffs!aphex2000 wrote:@danishchairs thanks for your work! both the constant size and window/file swap are super useful! its great fun to use pressure points to switch samples on the neb with it.
Yes. On the windowFileSwap05 instrument, the secondary (or alt) functions should work the same as they do on the default instrument.aphex2000 wrote:do the secondary (source + ...) functions still work as before?
Hmm, this could be a complicated statement or question, so I'll say some things and hope they help.aphex2000 wrote:i could be wrong but i feel like its auto panning the grains even when turned down
I may not know what you mean by "auto panning." There is Qu-Bit code which makes the two channels different from each other, at least in many/most situations.
But perhaps you are referring to what Qu-Bit calls "random panning." Here is what they write about the secondary size control:
Your question got me to test this using the Qu-Bit's firmware and the neb2danish05 firmware, and using the default Qu-Bit instrument and windowFileSwap05. From what I could tell (using headphones and my ears) was that the two instruments performed the same in regards to the size_alt function. (It didn't matter which firmware I used.) I could increase random grain panning by adjusting the size_alt knob clockwise, and decrease (or essentially stop it) by adjusting the size_alt knob counter-clockwise.From Neb2 manual wrote:4. Size
Controls the amount of random panning applied to the generated grains.
When fully counter-clockwise, there will be no random panning of grains.
When fully clockwise, each grain will be panned to a random location between both outputs.
Testing this, though, made me listen closely to a simple sound file at slow speed with low density and relatively low overlap (so that the grains were not too frequent and fairly pronounced). I thought I could detect a slow emphasis on the left channel and then the right channel. It was different than the pronounced random panning of individual grains described above. But it might be part of the code that keeps the two channels from being identical at their outputs.
I also noticed that my right channel seemed to at a lower volume/loudness/gain than the left channel. Everything seemed more balanced when I increased the gain on the right channel. It could be my module, it could be the sounds I have loaded, it could be my audio interface, it could be my ears/hearing, or some combination of these possibilities.
Anyway, hope that helps!
