Re: LFO Clock Divider...Dumb Question.

to my surprise, moving the LFO rate knob while MIDI sync is on only updates the value shown in the editor in real time on my Sirin. On my Minitaur, it only updates it when I close and reopen the editor. My Sirin's LFO knob is correctly outputting CC3 (LFO rate) and CC86 (clock divider) when MIDI syn...

Re: LFO Clock Divider...Dumb Question.

When MIDI Sync is on, the clock divider is controlled by the LFO Rate knob. I don't think there is a default value for that parameter (I could be wrong, I don't have much experience with MIDI Sync).

Re: Sirin Decay & Sustain problem solved

That's a very good news. I'm happy it wasn't an hardware problem as I had suggested.

Re: Can you edit Minitaur's CC implementation?

.. late comeback to my slightly out of nowhere SysEx post about MIDI CC mappings. Mostly to add too much context and minimal warnings (nothing that can't be fixed using that SysEx, the actual reason I posted here the above info). So first, I agree with MC that remapping CCs directly on the Minitaur ...

Re: Etherwave plus - upgrade or new instrument and where to buy?

I don't have any tools to objectively measure how much simplicity the plus upgrade takes away but Etherwaves seems more difficult to calibrate with the CV module than without. Before ordering an upgrade kit for my first theremin, I managed to calibrate it for a D0 - A3 playable range (sounds so awfu...

Re: Etherwave Plus: mic stand interference and tuning tips

I hope the etherwave has not been discontinued, seems like it's just a rumour (at least based on a quick google search). The claravox is indeed a limited edition and there seems to have been problems with the deliveries because of pandemic electronic component shortages that seemed to have also affe...

Re: "Goofy" sounding presets when running w/ hardware sequencer

have you tried messing with the Load Preset Mod Wheel global setting? (setup tab of the editor) I have never encountered the problem your describing and the way you're phrasing it suggest you've already tried that option but I'm curious. Sorry if this doesn't help. (there is also a MIDI SysEx that c...

Re: SIRIN: Midi message for change preset?

Hi,

Sirin (and Minitaur) respond to simple Program Change messages (0-127 values, no bank select or CC/SysEx tricks).

I hope that helps.

Re: Issues with Minitaur panel settings - overwritten?

Sorry karbn, I tried but could only partially reproduce your problem. setting Local Control to Off and scrolling thru presets using the shift panel combo gives very similar results than the problem your facing but I can't explain why you seems stuck that way. Sorry I couldn't help with that (sadly) ...

Re: Issues playing Thermini with a live band...

I certainly don't want to discourage you (or anyone) from attempting to play theremin in a live band setup but common sense would suggest that it should be almost impossible. Many have done it before us but don't set your expectations too high. In a classical, everyone else sitting on a chair contex...

Re: Issues with Minitaur panel settings - overwritten?

But then I noticed that my Decay & Sustain knobs no longer have any effect! 2 knobs not doing anything at all while others are fine sounds scary (looks more like an hardware problem than a firmware bug). If it was only drone mode while the sustain knob seemed to work normally, my guess would ha...

Re: Issues with Minitaur panel settings - overwritten?

< deleted > Late Edit : Local Control would indeed make a minitaur behave that way but that wouldn't be enough to explain why it remained that way after reinstalling the firmware (I've retested on my minitaur and simply unpowering it was enough to have it reset to Local Control On) Extremely sorry a...

Re: Issues playing Thermini with a live band...

Hi I never tried the theremini but hopefully my experience with etherwaves can help a bit. About the volume, I don't know if there's a parameter that can be set to allow controlling the volume with the knob when using the 1/4 output but if not, I know a theremin player who adds a guitar volume pedal...

Re: OK to use both USB & MIDI with Sirin?

Should not cause any problems. I can imagine possible conflicts trying to run 2 sequencers in parallel (using a computer thru USB and an external controller thru the standard MIDI port) or sending program changes messages from both at the same time but nothing worst than having a program change bein...
