I have some super-basic questions and I’m just going to drop them here for anyone who cares to enlighten me. I know this information is hidden somewhere in the massive YouTube effort of Neil Parfitt (for which all of us are eternally grateful), but I can’t watch them all again to find the details I’m looking for… unfortunatly, my time is pretty limited these days. Hope you don’t mind!
Where can I assign controls to a custom unit? I can add a chain and assign literal controls, but somewhere in Neil’s videos I saw how you can program some sort of control “variables”? I’m trying to set up a few building blocks like synth voice and so forth to use in bigger chains.
Is there some sort of normalling system between mixer units? I tried to make a sort of para-phonic patch and ran into the following problem: three mixer units next to each other with sine waves, each with different 1V/oct, but the same gate. The levels have to be low when they play together in order to avoid clipping, but when they play separately thy are too low on their own (for example when I switch to arpegiate instead of para-phonic). How is that generally handled?
I’m looking for some information about how to control the levels of the audio in general, and how to control it in the ER-301. What to look out for, when distrotion starts to happen, clipping, etc. The limited time I have played with the unit revealed to me that it is a very powerful tool, but because of that also pretty unpolished. I think I will have to learn a lot more about how audio really works if I want to get a handle on the ER-301! Which is a good thing.
I didn’t immediately figure out how to load samples in a project, but yeah, I will rewatch the relevant Parfitt-video on that topic. Should be easy to find.
Thanks for reading, who knows even answering! I may actually be inclined to add the info I gather here to the wiki if I figure out how to do that.
P.s. @odevices is this a support topic? Not sure how to use the tags yet
