But feedback loops are useful! One problem I've had with the overflow module is that feedback loop patches that never went crazy in older versions immediately overflow in this one.

Would it be possible to add a feature for resetting the overflow status by clicking on the "overflow" text?

You can get a -2 octave pitch. Basically, the octave control on the notepitch scales the pitch relative to middle C (C3). So if you set it to C1, pressing C2 on your MIDI controller or having a sequencer send a C2 note to the KarmaFX synth will produce a C0 note.

Hi Chris, Offhand, I'd say you want them parallel. I.e. each notepitch module is initially on a separate signal path from the other, with both leading into the amp module. So you might have a signal chain like: ___|N.PITCH|________ / \ |OSC|- |AMP|----etc, \__|N.PITCH-2 OCT|____/ As far as I underst...

It's a tough question then. You could use two note controllers, probably using more CPU by way of a greater amount of polyphonic modules and saving CPU by having any subsequent effects monophonic. Also, if you just want to pan each osc differently, you'll only need to place an amp module before the ...
