morphagene expander !?

Post by jjr » Tue Jul 30, 2019 9:01 am

....would be so awesome IMHO!
here is my wishlist:

1. 2 - 4hp
2. push buttons (alright simmer down it can be a push and hold for one second) for delete all splices, enter/exit reel mode, delete splice, clear reel, record into new splice). with some nice labels that say what the buttons do.

:hug:

This could be a cool idea but I think it would have to add more functionality for it to be interesting. Maybe a screen that displayed reel/splice information more accurately than the colored window or allowed you to change the options only accessible via the .txt file at the moment.

Yes this! On both counts!

I wouldn't mind at all a small readout to show what reel was loaded. Maybe with a scrolling text of user note as to what the sample source is and stats.

Does the Morphagene have an expansion header like some of the other MN modules?
Disappointment with any module is usually a failure of imagination.

Rant:
put please a question mark into the header and make it a fair deal.
As is is it cheap clickbait to make everybody jump in here.

I checked for myself. The Morphagene does not have an expansion header like the RxMx or DPO.

I don't see much use for an expander.
Even if you put a display in it, i'm not sure what you would display?
You can't name your reels or splices, so all it could display is mga, mgb, mgc, or splice 1, splice 2, splice 3 etc... i don't see much use for that, who even knowns by what reel 'mgf' is on their morgphagene for example? :hihi:
Something to change options on the SD card on the fly would be kind of cool but i don't mind that much pluging it in a computer to make adjustments.

I like the idea, if only to eliminate the need to remember (and check my memory of!) the key combinations.

Given the chances that ever seeing such a thing are minimal at best, how about a 4hp blank with a cheat sheet of button combos pasted on? :hmm:

OR a possible alternative update where the function is added or able to be swapped in on one of the buttons combos? You could create so many weird and deterministic events if able to gate "delete all splices" I feel it would make the add splices gate input much more playable / useful IMHO.

How about an expander with a bank of SD card slots, each with a ‘load’ button. Might as well throw cv control over that too! You could have a bunch of different cards with different .txt file options and reels (even some duplicated reels so you can switch .txt file options on the fly but your reel doesn’t change). You could go DEEP!
