Design a cheat sheet for Sub Phatty hidden parameters

Postby dswo » Wed Mar 13, 2013 9:23 am

The manual for the new Sub Phatty is now available online: http://www.moogmusic.com/products/phatt ... nloads-tab. There's a lot to be excited about, including some new envelope features that weren't available on the prototypes. But learning them will be tricky, since they aren't labeled on the panel and there's no display.

Is there someone who could design a double-sided cheat sheet? The way I envision it, side 1 would summarize pp. 26-38 from the manual ("Additional Hidden Parameters in Shift Mode"). I don't know how to fit all of that on one page, but surely the spirit of Edward Tufte is abroad somewhere. Side 2 would be a line-drawing of the front panel, labeled to show what each knob and button does in shift mode (pp. 23-25 in the manual). Cf. Bob Borries' images here: http://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewto ... 53#1063453. A photo, such as Borries used, would be less legible than a line drawing, but you get the idea.

A software editor would probably eliminate the need for cheat sheets. It doesn't seem like it would be too hard to learn just by practicing the parameters you want to adjust the most.

Maybe they could go back to the old overlay method?

If those setting will be saved with a preset, why not use one preset bank with your top 4 hidden funtion settings?

Here is a cheat sheet I made; I hope it helps!

In very-much-related news, the editor is shaping up nicely, and will make all parameters easy to see and edit all at once.

Until then, try this pdf:

Thank you, Amos. EricK's right: most of us will learn our favorite parameters without trying. But I want to stretch myself, and this will be a real help.

Yours gratefully,
David

Amos: In the cheat sheet, "GATED GLIDE" (top row) and "EG DECAY SPEED" (2nd row) appear to be duplicates of their neighbors.

Well-spotted, sir! Thank you! I've fixed and re-uploaded the file (same link):
http://www.moogconnect.net/downloads/ph ... c_v1_1.pdf

also note: "14 Bit CC Output" has only OFF and ON settings implemented in the current firmware.
The third "Filter/Freq Only" setting shown in the cheat sheet is to be implemented in future.
The idea is to provide a mode where only the most sonically-sensitive controls send 14-bit MIDI, so as to reduce the overall density of MIDI output versus full-on 14 bit mode.
This was a Minitaur user request, so I thought I'd implement something similar on both instruments.
