preenfm eurorack 2.11 cv to instrument
« on: January 17, 2020, 01:18:31 AM »
is it possible to control each instrument with each cv individually?

like four seq/oct in each cv input to control four instruments

No it's not.
Only the first input can be used as a gate, and the second one as a V/Oct.
This same signal can trigger several instruments though.

How is this done? Thinking about getting the euro version.

The CV gate can trigger the following instruments :
Single instrument : "1", "2", "3" or "4"
Or multiple : "12", "123", "1234".
You select that in the settings menu.

Ah so in unison? yes, that's of course a no-brainer... just put the same midi channel on them and it should work too..

would be interesting if it could play the 4 channels you have available in sequence instead, perhaps even randomized.  Or perhaps if the 4 available channels could be split in zones on 1 channel so you have access to all 4 patches from the 1 CV channel...

Except that there's no midi channel with "CV in" ;)
But that's the same idea.

Yes would be interesting and easy to implement.

https://github.com/Ixox/preenfm2/blob/master/src/synth/Synth.cpp#L168
Add this line anywhere in the file:
Code: [Select]
int triggeredTimbre = 0;
And replace case 7 :
Code: [Select]
            case 7:
                timbreToTrigger[triggeredTimbre++] = (tt ++) % 4;
            break;

Then if you select "1234" would  triggered all instruments but one after the other...

Would also be easy to split depending on the midiNote evaluated in the "CV in V/Oct"... cvin.getMidiNote() si also available.

You're of course correct, there's no midi channel  ;D

Would be really cool too see these things implemented! Glad to see such creative community and developing for this machine btw.. makes me more confident to buy one. its usually the first thing i google for when i get interested in new gear; name + firmware and then i look if things are added.

make it CV-selectable so we can choose via voltage which instrument is playing ;) it might sound messy to do, but there are modules like voltage block where you easily can select a specific voltage for something.. i use it for Disting and its sample player to select a specific sample via CV.

Great ideas!

Xavier can you implement this in the Settings menu, to turn in On/Off. This would make it very interesting!

Yes sounds good. In a couple of week when I’m back home.  ;)
