Not exactly correct in the context of a modular. See: http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/aug00/articles/synthsec.htm Sample & hold is a module that "samples" an input voltage at regular intervals (usually triggereed by another clock input). Between one sample point and the next, the output voltage is k...

Another bug (sorry)

There seems to be something strange going on with the freq knob on the oscillator. Try this: connect an osc to an amplifier and the amplifier to a note pitch. Set the note pitch mode to poly2, set the freq to snap and to, let's say 1 semitone. Now play a scale. Something very chaotic results. I can ...

This is really cool. However, I think there is a bug somewhere. Try setting the range to 4 octaves and snap to semitones. It is not possible to set the frequency to 5 semi. At 14, it's 4 semi, at 15, it's 6 semi. Sounds like some rounding error. Actually, I played with it some more with a tuner atta...

Triggering

Is there any way of triggering an envelope other than through midi? I want to be able to trigger an envelope with the step sequencer.

Similar to ADSR? Start releasing from the voltage when the key is released? The voltage doesn't have to jump, just start releasing. The way ADSR does it.

Awesome. Both work. So now, I have another question :D The Envelope module does not seem to have a release stage. When I release a key, it completes the whole envelope no matter where it is. Is this intentional? Or maybe it is there but I don't know how to activate it? I am just starting to use it a...

It sounds like it should. Cool. I will try it as soon as I go home. Would it be possible to add a switch to ADSR to do the same thing? Envelope is great but it is sometimes an overkill. It sound like this is 3rd envelope option: 1. default (negative), range -[max, 0] 2. bipolar, range [-max, max] 3....

I did (and I love it). However, it has the same problem. The maximum value corresponds to a 0 voltage and 0 in the envelope corresponds to a negative voltage. So, let's say I want to modulate the filter cutoff frequency. Let's say the cutoff slider is in the midde, 63. Depending on the modulation va...

Envelope offset

Is there a way to add an offset to an envelope? I would like the starting voltage to be 0 and reach +max at the end of attack. I found it very confusing that the there is modulation at the beginning of the envelope.

Is it not possible to use poly2 for pads? That's what I tend to use (or something higher). Is there a feature of mono that you need? By the way, how does KarmaFX decide which notes to drop when the polyphony is reached in poly mode?

I am sorry but this doesn't make sense. The mono mode is emulating a monophonic synthesizer which has only one envelope generator. A single envelope generator cannot be running a sustain phase and an attack phase at the same time. Playing a new note will retrigger the envelope and you will loose the...

I investigated. Minimoog: 1. legato: does not retrigger env. for old note 2. non legato: does not retrigger env. for old note Ensoniq ESQ1: 1. does not retrigger env for old note Alesis ION: 1. legato: does not retrigger 2. non legato: retriggers I would probably either add an option or go for not t...

Hmmm. I don't think that the old note should retrigger. But it may be an option. When I go home, I will check my synths and maybe the documentation of some older synths. It should use portamento to go back to the old note though. While I am asking for features, how hard would it be to add an option ...

Mono mode problems

Forgive me if this sounds ignorant. I ran into a problem using the monophonic mode of the pitch controller. If I a hold a key (let's say, a bass note on the lower register) and start playing another note, most of the VSTs and VAs I am used to would revert back to the bass note once I release the hig...
