OB-6 / Re: OB6 Manual Button no response
« Last post by shmuelyosef on Today at 08:38:10 PM »
They're in good company...my 20-year-old Mackie mixer has had the same problem for a decade with both buttons and pots. Same solution for buttons, for pots you just spin it stop-to-stop for about a minute and then it works for several months. One of these years I'll take it apart and clean them all.

My OB-6 is a little over a year old now and hasn't had any problems.

I missed an obvious, but cooler name suggested by someone on Sonic State's Youtube video: Laura Palmer. That would look pretty frickin' rad taped over Novation if you ask me. I could transport the Summit to gigs wrapped up in plastic.

Yes, I still have the Prophet '08s and Poly Evolvers.  I've had some equipment up for sale, though, in the hope of financing one or two Rev2s.

Tempest / Re: Weird distortion effect on every 3rd beat

Main OS version?Voice OS version?
Have you tried calibrating with all cables unplugged?

Yes, I double checked the OS versions and calibrated the oscillators and filters.

The sound is removed when I decrease the default level of decay...

I’ll use gaffer tape to label mine “Twin Peaks” then I’ll relabel Novation as “Agent Cooper” or “Cherry Pie” or “White Lodge”.

 ;D

In that case you’ll definitely need a cup holder, too.
Nothing that can’t be accomplished with duct tape.   :)

As long as it holds a damn good coffee that's alright.
…  or a nice Deutscher Bier Stein.

Welcome back, megavoice. I'm glad you've recovered from what must have been a tough experience.

I used to go by the moniker "Poptones" in the old forum. Not sure if you can remember, but I can definitely remember you.

Elmquist/dslsynth has disappeared completely since last December. Of the old gang, you'll still find Razmo and chysn here to name a few.


hello paul,

i m sorry i don t remember you but i can remember chysn, but thank you, for chiming in. i hope some others ll do as well

i ll be happy, if they ll do too

i d be grateful for every little sign of loveliness, after facing the death in that manner

in the rehab center i had three room partners i had to accompany to death suffering from their blood pressure medicin,

they had to take regularly and i had to be marter of the decreasing confession when the pope came

i also have to take 5 pills a day and i asked my family doctor about their danger, but he s told not to bother about.

 despite i m a bit scared in total..........................

@ sacered synth

you dont want me to tell your firstname ??? I cannot call you ao because it isn t actual any more....

and as a german i have great problems with the abbrevation ss.............

of course i allowe you and everyone else to go on calling me mv, but NEVER say chris to me because this is a guardian

name

you can also call me dracula, if you want, as i m a transylvanian german.....................

but now back  to the subject,

first, thank you for your detailed description of the rev 2................very interresting
secondly,
what about your gear....do you still go with the 08, and i remember you had the poly-evolver, and you had been telling us about a new house you bought...are you still happy with ??????????????????

cheers,

christian

in fact I'd have liked the output to be a little bit hotter than it actually is, since many sounds end up being a bit lower in volume, compared to my other synths.

Same here. The Rev2 seems to be a relative quiet synth. If you are really really sure, that it‘s the Rev2 where the distortion comes from (after you did every calibration routine and update), you should contact the DSI support directly.

No such problem here either, actually all of my banks presets are usually set at 127, unless they get too loud compared to the other presets... but even when at 127, these do not distort, they just sound loud... in fact I'd have liked the output to be a little bit hotter than it actually is, since many sounds end up being a bit lower in volume, compared to my other synths.

Could it be, that you are actually distorting the REV2 output on your soundcard's input? ... that would certainly explain why it goes away when you dial back on the volume parameter. Maybe your soundcards input are configured for consumer levels and not pro audio levels (+4dB) ?

With that said, some presets certainly can distort, and i believe that is even mentioned in the manual, especially with high resonances... sometimes the FX engine can also distort if the sound is too loud, but it's very rare that I've run into this.

And another thing; have you successfully calibrated your REV2? ... it might be worth a shot calibrating it from the global menu... just remember to let the REV2 warm up for about an hour before you perform the calibration so that it is calibrated at working temperature.
