I thought it would be a good idea to create a thread where folk can share their ER-301 specific Teletype scenes as I don’t think there is anywhere else suitable for this yet.
I thought about putting this thread on Lines, but these are more specific to the ER-301 than they are to the Teletype in general, although it’s possible some scenes will translate very nicely, like this one:
This is DOT 3, based wholly on the work by @scanner_darkly so I cannot take any credit, except that I have updated it to work on the newer versions of the Grid Ops firmware where the grid starts at 0,0 rather than 1,1 and also modified the Trigger and CV outs to be ER-301 specific.
Namely TR port 1 and CV ports 1 through 4 as detailed in SCRIPT #2
SC.CV 1 N PN 0 A
SC.CV 2 V B
SC.CV 3 V + 2 C
SC.CV 4 V + 2 D
Thanks Kel. I have to admit that I’m thrilled you are gelling with the Teletype, as it felt like you were kvetching a bit about scripts and computer keyboards prior to your decision to order it. Seeing your enthusiasm now is a great big breath of fresh air. And thanks again for this thread.
Yeah, seems it’s not unlimited - well of course not - to wit, I would like some practical guidance on how much you can push the Teletype and ER-301 over i2c. I realise this is pretty far out there and I might have to work this out myself
It was a script page and you’re absolutely right, I should separate it off into its own script, I was tacking it onto the end of the main sequence script - not the brightest idea!
To be honest though, it was more a case of just seeing if I could exceed the number of physical patch points on the ER-301 and use some of the physical ones too - as this seems to me to be the most compelling reason to use this protocol.
I have a very similar scene! I use the TT knob to control the Length for all tracks, then Txi knobs 1-4 control Fill for tracks 1-4. I had to make sure that Fill was sort of “capped” at Length, otherwise Fill exceeding Length had the affect of muting that track.
