Output volume vs polyphony..
« on: May 15, 2017, 05:51:44 PM »
Hello there..
Is it normal if I get a big difference in output volume, when I turn the polyphony "knob" ??
On my preenfm2, the output volume is decreasing, as long as I increase the polyphony, and vice versa.. Is it the normal behaviour ? Or is it just on mine ?

And still.. Enjoy your sun..

This is how it works.
The voice mixer is 100% digital.

So it maximizes the number of actual bits for each used voice.
Same thing : instrument not used should have their number of voice set to 0 so that it does not take any room in the digital mixer.

Summary : for best resolution, only set the number of voices you really need for each instrument.

Ah yes, ok.. And I guess I will have less aliasing when the polyphonique is reduced..
OK. . Thanx Xavier..
