Re: External device into the Matriarch Delay?

Plugging into the front Delay Inputs "replaces" (cuts) the Matriarch's signal to the Delay. I'm wanting to have both Matriarch & GM using the same delays. I also thought about somehow using the rear Delay Outs, but that doesn't get it either.

External device into the Matriarch Delay?

The Matriarch's signal flow puts an External device (plugged into the rear Ext. In) through the Filters, VCAs, then Delays. I'd like to just use the Delay only (from Grandmother) without VCF/VCA processing, but I don't see any way to do this without replacing the normal VCA1 or VCA2 signals from wit...

Matriarch Delay: Time & Space twisting

When turning the Spacing & Time knobs using the Delay, I get wild frequencies moving around. Kind of cool actually, but I don't understand why. An inherent design feature?

Re: Clock sync issues

I changed my external master clock and strictly using MIDI. Everything seems to synching up now. Maybe my previous master clock device was the problem, so I made it a slave. :?

Re: Synth Clock, PPQN, Rate knobs

I changed my sync clock to a different device and that seems to fixed things. Geeeez!

Synth Clock, PPQN, Rate knobs

Since I haven't been able to get my Grandmother & Matriarch to keep their Arp/Seq clocks sync'd in the month after getting the Matriarch, I'm studying synth clocks a bit more in depth. The GM & Matriarch default Clock In/out rates are 4 ppq ("16th notes"). The general MIDI DIN stan...

Re: Grandmother Dark constant background note

I just heard this on my Grandmother also. But if I use headphones instead of running to my mixer, no noise. Doesn't sound like that's a GM issue, though no other instrument running to my mixer (Behringer Xenyx), has any underlying noise. Tried a different TS cable with no remedy.

Re: Clock sync issues

Now the GM has drifted off the Matriarch clock. No firmware or cabling changes. They have the same tempo, just a beat off. Something's not right.

Re: Clock sync issues

After weeks of messing with various connections and firmware settings, I may have found a fix. Disconnected MIDI from my Grandmother and connected Clock CV from Matriarch into the GM. I still use my Ext. Clock MIDI INto my Matriarch. I had tried this setup initially with disastrous results. But some...

Clock sync issues

I am trying to sync the clocks (Arp/Seq Rate) from my Matriarch into my Grandmother. I am using rear panel 1/8" jacks (Mat Clock Out>GM Clock IN) (All firmwares are up to date) The two will only sync when the Matriarch's Global Settings #28/Clock Output= " Only When Playing ". The GM ...

Re: Matriarch Paraphonic Playing "style"

I've settled on all VCOs having identical Octave & Freq. settings, though I might keep 2 different Waveforms. This allows me to play a bit more piano-style. But all the variations of firmware settings didn't totally fix playability for me. Paraphonic playing definitely is a different style than ...

Matriarch Arp

I love the Ratchet button during Sequence playback.
It would be fun if the "Rest", "Tie", & "Ratchet" buttons did something during ARP playback. (future firmware?)

Matriarch Paraphonic Playing "style"

As a full-polyphonic, or a monophonic (Grandmother) player, I'm having a tough time getting the hang of oscillator rotations in 4-voice polyphony. I've tried various polyphonic firmware settings but when I play with more than two fingers in 4-voice mode, the notes played become too random for my tas...

Re: Grandmother: How to sync modulation rate?

While triggering the mod rate from the KB-Gate-out does start a new S/H note, the actual mod rate isn't affected. That I can tell.

Re: Grandmother: How to sync modulation rate?

I just tried several ways to have "Rate In" to Modulation clock with the Arp/Seq, which is being clocked externally. Even tried "Clock Out" on the rear panel patched to the "Rate In", and got some weird noises (feedback?) when the mod wheel was used. Mainly trying to ha...
