I'm making a one patch drum kit similar to what this guy did here

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gipTFNhniMo&t=513sThe issue I'm having is that the keynote modulation, which will serve as the source for many parameters for this kind of patch, defaults to a 6-7 octave range for the full effect to come into play. Take noise, for example, there is a huge range of keys from 0 noise to full noise. The goal is the compress that range so all of the change happens within 2-3 octaves instead. Stacking multiples of the same modulation works, but I run out of slots quickly.

Next, I tried a custom tuning that spans 6 octaves within 24 keys and loaded it via the sysex. Unfortunately it looks like the tuning isn't really affecting the note number as used by the modulations at all. Too bad, this would have been a great solution.

I recently figured something else out. Instead of wasting 4 mod slots on just noise AMT I instead set it up like this

I could set:

MOD 1 to keynote > 127 > Noise AMT

MOD 2 to keynote > 127 > Mod 1 AMT

MOD 3 to keynote > 127 > Mod 1 AMT

MOD 4 to keynote > 127 > Mod 1 AMT

And achieve the desired effect. This lets me go from 0 noise on key one and full noise on key 36. 3 Octaves is good enough.

Now I'm thinking that I could set MOD 1 to something else, other than noise, that I could then link noise and other things to. I'd only have 4 mod slots left still, but they would all be quadrupled and have the same exaggerated range! I thought ENV3 would be a good candidate so I tried something like

MOD 1 to keynote > 127 > ENV 3 AMT

MOD 2 to keynote > 127 > Mod 1 AMT

MOD 3 to keynote > 127 > Mod 1 AMT

MOD 4 to keynote > 127 > Mod 1 AMT

What is strange is that I could ENV3 Destination knob and set it to noise and the effect works as desired but if I set MOD 5 to ENV 3 source and noise as Destination at full amount, it doesn't work.

I feel like I am getting closer to making this work. Looking for ideas. Maybe there is a whole new way to go about achieving this.

Got it somewhat fleshed out in this example here

https://clyp.it/rktnyay2 which is just a single patch.

I'd still like to compress that range to make more use of interesting changes between what is essentially the kick into the snare into the high hat as you go up the keys.
