key range, velocity range
« on: October 17, 2021, 11:01:53 PM »
would it be possible to allow a key range to restrict each of the 4 instruments to fade out or stop playing outside of a specified key range or velocity range?  so in essence you could build a multi layered patch that was very expressive instead of using the layers as different instruments.  in essence making the whole machine about layers of a single patch but all responding accordingly?  this would take the machine to the next level for reasonably complex patches.  i know you could use the matrix for some of this but im unaware of you can make a velocity range for a patch as easily.  it would be nice to have a higher level of layer management so the option to use it this way were available without going into detail in the matrix.  like another page after 'engine' for keyrange/velocity/fade parameters? ill totally buy you a beer or 5

The preenfm3 has key range limit and key shift options for each instrument in the mixer pages.
That allows you to control several instruments from 1 keyboard with same midi channel.
I don't have plan to add that to the preenfm2.

Velocity range has lots of interest with samples from real instrument.
Adding that to the preenfm would be weird.
Modifying params with velocity as source in the matrix sounds like the way to go for FM.

If you really want to expermient, i think that's the kind of processing that can ben done before reaching the preenfm in a midi processor.

good to know about the preenfm3.   i guess that would work.  do you plan to add much more to the preenfm2?  seems like some less processor intensive things would make sense.  anyway, thanks for unison, its really the best way to imprint some of these sounds.  im definitely looking forward to the preenfm3.  ill most likely get another if i like it!

I'll definitely fix any bugs that are found in the preenfm2.
And yes, maybe some less processor intensive things such as midi feature.
I don't have anything in mind right now.
