What I had initially wanted to do was use the ADSR unit to create an envelope for a separate VCA module, in this case a XAOC Tallin. so i added the ADSR to a channel and was hoping i could just use the jack labeled A1 as its input source but when i go to make that selection on the smaller screen it reads “unit input only”.
I was processing FX for other modules with this channel (and the other 3 channels doing the same) otherwise i would have just used the channel solely as an envelope generator. So instead of consuming a whole channel just to use as an ADSR, I’d like to assign the I/O of the ADSR to the jacks of the A1-D3 matrix in the bottom right corner of the 301 without the envelope modifying the sound being processed through the channel I/O in any way. Is that possible? I hope that makes sense.
Blockquote I guess it will be best if you elaborate more on your use case…
(I.e. answering Brian’s question)
But are you aware of the possibility to set up units and whole chains in a global chain?
In a way that ‘decouples’ units and whole chains from channels…
- you can tap into them from every channel
- they stay ‘alive’ even when you change or delete chains in the channels
- they are being calculated prior to units and chains in the channels
I dont know what global chains are (I’m new), but if i had to guess from the sound of it they can be used to allow units to operate as if they are completely separate eurorack modules, if thats the case that definitely the solution. Homework time…
