Take 5 / Re: Take 5 Firmware Update - Feature Requests
« Last post by Real Soon on Today at 08:24:28 PM »
Got another one based on a recent thread about stereo delay!

An option to enable ping-pong when stereo mode is enabled. Not everyone will want ping-pong all the time, but some will. Many will.

Also... whether or not this is based on precedent, I think it's sort of antiquated to force the performer to manually switch from mono to stereo when choosing to use both outputs. My mid-2000s Alesis Micron, among a thousand other brands & makes of synthesizer, features auto-stereo by plugging something into the right channel. Also that Cathedral pedal, pretty old and also tiny. Idunno if soldering has to happen to enable that, but it really shouldn't. Let's get this puppy up to date.

Take 5 / Re: Setting up stereo delay
« Last post by Real Soon on Today at 08:18:31 PM »
Sounds like a *fantastic* item to contribute to the firmware revision thread! There's no reason a simple ping-pong delay can't be built in. On the EHX Cathedral reverb pedal, there's a setting that turns it into a simple digital delay. In mono, it's a mono delay. But if you run both outputs, it automatically switches to a basic left-right-left-right ping-pong setting.

It would NOT be hard to program either that or a selectable-in-menu setting to enable ping-pong for stereo, on a by-preset basis.

Glad you got it sorted!

Sequential Prophet X / Re: PXToolkit 1.0 Available Now
« Last post by Lady Gaia on Today at 07:20:33 PM »
Anyone know what I am doing wrong? Incidentally I am running OS 2.2.2

It looks like you got the answer you needed in another thread: you need to tell the Prophet X what type of samples to search for.  You can select User, Add-On, or Factory sample updates.  The instrument will only scan your USB device for the type selected, and forgetting to switch to User is a common mistake the first time around.  Hopefully everything is working for you now?

Other Hardware/Software / Re: Korg ARP 2600M

Korg's original plan to issue the ARP 2600M seems to have included a keyboard much like that of the FS.  It's unfortunate that this keyboard was replaced by the cheap one they offer now.  As a result, you have to patch in such fundamental functions as vibrato and even portamento.  Also, the oscillators are less stable than those of the Odyssey.  In some ways, the Odyssey is a better synthesizer.

I uploaded a sample / preset pack here:  https://forum.sequential.com/index.php/topic,4169.0.html


Included in that download is a PDF I put together that explains the process.  That PDF might help you even if you donít want the presets.

I didnít change the Library value to User in the Globals menu.. works now though thanks to your instructions.

Thanks so much for pointing me in the right direction, much obliged!

Prophet Rev2 / Re: One handed player

Thanks Mike. I thought that was for each modulation, maybe I need to do more than skim read the manual. I may be back! 😀

EDIT: Came back, I completely see what you meant now and that helped very much. Canít thank you enough. Using the select knob to choose source and destination and the same for LFO.

All the best,

Steve

Well I saw the PCM sample list....incredibly poor selection. To the point I think I may skip this.

I'm going to wait until I really know this synth reasonably well before posting an opinion, other than to say first impressions are great and what I had hoped it would be... but I did want to comment on the PCM model and and the samples available.  While there isn't a huge number of them, it may be less of an issue than it may seem on paper, because a PCM part consists of up to 4 oscillators, and with a sample loaded in each one, you quickly find yourself using the 4 mixer sliders to combine those sounds in different ways to come up with new tones.

This, of course, isn't going to satisfy if looking for it to be a heavy duty ROMpler or provide a good selection of acoustic samples... but it does mean that the variety of tones you can get out of the PCM model is much more vast than might be portrayed just by looking at the sample list, because of all the tone combination possibilities, which are multiplied using the mix levels... and that doesn't even take into consideration the bewildering number of FX which can modify the tone further.

OB-X8 / Re: OB-X8 new soundset : Backlash
« Last post by barb on Today at 08:08:35 AM »
Thanks Quatschmacher !

I watched a lot of videos before taking the plunge.
I have to add that i also own a P10Rev4 since 2 years.

I was concern about a major thing and a detail before buying.

First, was there too much overlap between P10 and OBX8.
Actually there is a small amount of overlap for a bunch of sounds, if you use the 4 pole LPF of the OB-X8 with some slight rez settings but i found that for most things, they complete each other very well, which is finally a strong point.

The detail was about the envelopes speed, and i was happy to hear that they can be snappy when needed.
Needless to say that the build quality is very good on both.

I prefer putting the pots on 'Jump' mode, so you are sure to have the full range of parameter settings.
(Jump mode should be native for an OB !  ;D)

So maybe give it another try if you can.  8)
