Basically, when Live (or any DAW) is set up this way, it "echoes" the MIDI it receives from the synth, back out to the same synth. If Local Control is turned on, this creates a problem, because the synth is responding directly to your knob-turnings, and then it's also getting MIDI echoed back from from the DAW which represents the same knob-turning action, only slightly later in time. This creates a glitchy sound as the two sets of instructions (Local and MIDI) fight with each other.

With Local Control off, when I switch to "Panel Activate" from a preset, every parameters from the preset are carried over to the "Panel Activate" mode. Which makes "Panel Activate" mode useless.
If Local Control is on, no such problem.
Until then, try this v1.0.4 version... it has no "sick cat" sounds...

thank you very much for the testing and feedback!

I've tested this with MIDI connected and not and the sound engine of the Sub Phatty is still being triggered despite having turned 'off' Local Control.
Has anyone else experienced this? I did find it odd that the low C key triggers Local Control 'off' rather than 'on' - thinking perhaps this error in the updated manual, but I tried low C# key as well and to no avail.

mico wrote:There is also something odd happening on initial start-up with the Sub Phatty. The volume is peaking hot until I adjust the knob even the slightest and then there is a huge drop in volume. I checked the Preset Volume hidden parameter in Shift mode and regardless of whether I've set it to 'on' or 'off', this issue still arises.

Amos wrote:This sounds like a simple start-up bug; I am looking at it right now. Please try the v1.1.1 firmware update as soon as I post it, and let me know if you have the same volume issue on start-up or not.
Amos wrote:No, don't worry! There is no risk to the hardware from that setup.
Amos wrote:OK, here is Sub Phatty firmware version 1.1.1:
http://www.moogconnect.net/downloads/ph ... _1_1_1.syx
This version fixes the loud volume on startup (it is now the preset volume, or the real volume knob position, depending on the "use preset volume" global setting)...
Also fixed two "Activate Panel" issues: first it works in Local Off mode, second it always gets the real Mod Wheel position.
Lastly, Cutoff filtering is better now, with no glitches in Ableton (I still recommend Local Off mode for times when you are recording/monitoring MIDI at the same time... if any other Local Off bugs please let me know so I can fix them).

Amos wrote:Nope, no risk to patch memory.
You can always export your presets as sysex before you do the update, just for the extra sense of security that a backup provides.
