Yes, FH-1 has smoothing and one tends to use it because it gets steppy if you don’t. I haven’t tried the high resolution CC’s because frankly it’s a pain to configure. I’m using it with the Squarp Pyramid sequencer so it does give loads of control, trigger and sequence options.
By the way, this thread is really long, but I didn’t find anyone talking about MN Pressure Points? Have I missed it, because while I’m waiting for my ER-301 to arrive I am looking into buying one for more hands on control over the module. I though the gate combined with the pressure CV and pitch CV would be a great controller for the ER-301. Any ideas on this?
