      Hello Friends,

      We’ll attempt to compile frequently asked questions here as we receive them. If you have any questions, tips or such please feel free to reply to this post, and we’ll add them as we go, thanks : )


      • When I connect external audio signal to EXT pins of BASS, SD or HHT modules I hear external signal normally but the BASS, SD or HHT audio becomes very quiet, can barely be heard. Is my Pulsar 23 malfunctioning or am I missing something?
      The EXT IN in pin on all Pulsar channels works according to the principle of balance of input and output impedance. The ratio of it defines the mix between module\ext signals.
      So when you connect something to an EXT IN, the sound of the module significantly decreases cause mixing starts to work.
      The BD channel has a different chain than the rest of the modules because it has a waveshaper at the end instead of a resonant filter.
      All EXT INs are connected before the filter and only in BD the IN is connected before the waveshaper.
      That is why it works with EXT signal in another way and has another input impedance and mixing.
      However, in the BD channel, you can significantly change the mix of EXT\module sounds using the DRIVE knob.
      Also, you can significantly change mixing in any module by changing the output impedance of the EXT signal source. (try to use the Attenuators)

        Доброго времени суток, уважаемая редакция!
        Житель Санкт- Петербурга передает вам следующий вопрос: как отвязать midi назначения или, попросту, сбросить их? Мануал прочитан, ответ не найден.

          I have the same question as above

            Pulsar is tricking me with midi!!!
            In the beginning all midi connection worked perfect:

            ch.1 – BD, ch.2-BASS, ch.3-SN, ch.4-HH

            But recently Pulsar stoped responding to previous (above) midi setup and triggers All modules from midi ch.1 simultaneously.

            By some manipulations with LRN buttons I tried to separate some of the models and tried to assign them to their corresponding number (channel) but still no result. If BASS and HH modules responded to midi info from ch.2 and ch.4, BD started to copy the midi info of ch.4 and SN module triggered against, not in time with midi info ch.3

            How to bring it back to midi sanity and what went wrong?

            I use Octatrack MKii and Ableton 10 and AudioFuse rev2

              From the manual:

              To clear all learned MIDI functions, simultaneously press the LRN buttons of BD, BASS,
              SD and HHT modules (the four buttons at the bottom).

                Thank You! It did help. Midi communication is back.

                  Можно ли использовать MIDI-конвертор Pulsar-23, как преобразователь MIDI-сообщений из DAW (например Reaper) в источник сигналов Gate и 1 v/oct? Если да, то как настроить такое преобразование?

                    I cant seem to copy and paste from banks on Pulsar following the steps am I missing something or might there be something a miss with my Pulsar Unit ?

                      Please remember the channels you wish to copy to must be in REC mode to accept any copying. It will also only copy for as long as you are holding down the copy/paste command. If you’re still have issues getting it to work feel free to email [email protected] and we can schedule a video call to sort it out.
