Early P23 do not have the reset MIDI function, this is why it likely does nothing for you.
The other behavior does not sound normal. Please send an email to Soma tech support at [email protected] with the serial number, an explanation of how you are trying to send MIDI messages and a video showing what you are trying to do. We will analyze what could be going on.
Soma tech supportApril 12, 2021 at 6:00 pm in reply to: hardwire voice outs to single jack outs internally? #6799Yes it’s possible of course but needs a more complex invasion.The simplest solution – just to pick up the signal from the middle pin of the VOL pot.
It is about the X2 receptacle…
In the manual, it says: „doubles the capacitance of the storage capacitor“.
Now, does that mean that if I pass on a voltage from cell 1 to cell 4, but do not trigger it at the same time, the capacitor stores the value until the cell is triggered?Yes the capacitor is a kind of simple analog memory. It stores the last voltage that was on the main capacitor just before the voltage on X2 got zero.
Or do I need to pass on any X2 value AND at the same time also trigger the cell?You can consider these processes as independent
I tried to find out by experimenting but did not really come to a definitive conclusion.Just think about the capacitor as an additional volume that connects to the main when you will put a voltage on X2.And it doesn’t depend on is the cell is triggered or notMarch 29, 2021 at 11:02 am in reply to: hardwire voice outs to single jack outs internally? #6785Yes, it is possible.The simplest way is to remove the voice PCBs and connect the corresponding pins with wires.I recommend using shielded wires with a grounded shield to avoid crosstalk that the wires may cause.
Please send an email to [email protected] with serial nr and a video with clear audio showing the problem.
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).
Pulsar works with 0-10v. If you are triggering from Eurorack, you are likely only sending max 5v. You need a stronger trigger signal most likely.
Pulsar has unbalanced outputs, so as a rule of thumb it’s better to use TS jacks.
From the manual “The permissible volt-
age range connected to the inputs of the Pulsar is -20 to +20 volts. However, the effective operation of the input is limited to a range of 0 to 10 volts.”
So the answer is yes, to achieve full velocity, you need to send a 10v signal.
Unfortunately, it will not function the way you envisioned it. However, the Soma Ornament 8 sequencer does exactly what you ask for here, and much more. It controls (with 8 knobs) when and for how long the sensors are triggered, and so on, and frees up your hands for doing other things. The adapter connecting Ornament to Lyra also has sensors, so you can play your own notes anytime on top of the sequence running from the Ornament. It’s a lot of fun and adds another dimension to it.
Hi Lee, due to the ever-changing situation with govt regulations and airlines because of Covid-19, all postal services worldwide experience delays, sometimes short, sometimes very long, and we have no influence on them especially if your package is delayed at an international junction like an airport warehouse/hub. Despite this, most packages do arrive within our estimated time frames and in rare cases they dont. We apologize for these awkward times and thank you for your patience and understanding. If you require further and personal information, please write to us directly [email protected]
Hi, it sounds like what happens when an internal mixer loop back happens , possibly 2 channels sending in your sound-card, some plugin activated or when the input monitor is on while recording creating this flam effect. By process of elimination, can you please plug straight into your speakers, does this still happen ? What about headphones ? if not the issue is in your digital chain. hope that helps and if it doesn’t please write us at [email protected] and well investigate further to quickly resolve.October 7, 2020 at 4:02 pm in reply to: Quantization? why in this video he said there is no quantization #6268
not sure Nick knew at the time we had a quantize function 🙂
From the user manual page 10:
BANK + L + M + one of the sensors (ADD or DEL) of the desired LR channel — will quantize the content of the channel to 16 notes. The LR will stop when this operation is performed. To start it again, use the start function. For the quantize function to work correctly, please make sure that the LR is aligned with the clock dividers!! To do this, press the RST button on the CLOCK module before recording, and\or connect the LRST pin to the 0.25 output of the clock divider, and use a metronome during the recording!
