I'm really sorry but, I simply can't stand to listen to the same 8 notes of a sequencer for more than 1 minute... No matter how much the speed, or the sound changes with added effects.

It simply drives me C-R-A-Z-Y ! and just make me want to throw my headphones out the window !!! :x

It has the same effect on me as someone ringing the doorbell over, and over, and over....

Maybe I'm in need of some psychological help ? :mrgreen:


Also, how is your audio connected ? Are you taking the sound from a mixer to the camera, or to the computer ? I suspect that the sound is only on the left channel because of mono jacks being inserted into stereo plugs, maybe ?

Sorry for loosing it at the beginning of my post. It's just me.

Nah ur fine man.

The thing about sequencers is that they are great....when you have a boatload of modules to work with. This is something im in the process of trying to remedy. Sequencing today I realized how badly I need my Taurus so I can use it and lead with the voyager. Im in the process of getting my studio consolidated also.

I'm going to go back in there in a minute and see if I can really do something worth posting.

Looks okay. Audio is just a tad hot, not yet distorted but getting close. What camera and how are you feeding the audio in ? What is the audio input connection ? If it is a mini there is a trs to two mono female mini's that works very well. Do you have manual level control ? If so, like when recording to any digital device try and keep the peeks around -4. If it is auto level only, back off on the signal you're feeding it.

Sequencers are fun but the same notes over and over can get a bit too much… sometimes :)
enjoy

EricK, no matter what, your videos will ALWAYS sound better than mine. Take some solace in that, at least. :wink:

Do you ever run the Q119 in random mode? (then there is no repetive sequence)
Why is there nothing going from the Voyager to the 351?

Yep, not a single stereo cable. Believe it or not, I've never had the need for one. Obviously I need a couple of them.

Audio is going in directly to the camera in this one.

The thing is, there are so many different ways to screw up the volume. Theres the original signal volume, the gain, the channel volume, the master volume, the USB volume, the input gain in logic and the master volume in logic (in other projects), not to mention the drive and out knobs in the foogers.

I can see where limiters and compressors would come in handy.

The camera is a Canon HF R21, and as of yet, I don't know if it will give you levels on the mic input. It does also have a headphone out but heres an additional factor....my headphones are being repaired. I could get a much better grasp on the mix when I don't have to rely on outboard PC speakers from the headphone out of the mixer.

Excuses excuses lol.

So until I get my headphones back, I will have to multiply the audio into logic and use the camera's microphone, then go in imovie and turn down the footage volume and use the hi-fi audio track from logic.

I see now why in professional movie productions, they separate the video from the audio. Having commercial equipment means different A/D conversion rates, which was one of the problems in my previous videos.


I never really thought to use random mode on the q119, I figured I have many S&H sources, but I guess being able to program that makes it where it is not quite as random. Good suggestion, Thanks.


The bottom line is that I need more sequencers and modules. Oh, and I need more money. If anyone wants to help out with that, send a pm lol.

You got enough gear, you just need to get creative with the patches. I remember when I first got the moog drum, I couldn't get a decent percussion sound that wasn't just repetitive crap. But I experimented with the cp-251, scaling, and delay until I got a great sound. It can be daunting sometimes, I get in ruts where I can't come up with anything good, and think all I need is more gear, but everything gets old after a while. Just find the inspiration somewhere.

I've already moved on. That video was just a test, in fact, I probably shouldn't have even uploaded it and posted it here.
I did this at like 230 am this morning.

Are you trying to talk me out of getting more modules? lol how dare you.

Actually what I need are more patchcords also.

I agree with both statements and more patchcords can help.

Also, don't think of CV, audio and gates as separate entities.

If the audio going to your monitors is disortion free the only level you need to worrry ab yout is what is feeding the Canon. Should be mic level. the Canaon you have I think run it in "Simple" mode a mode that allows more fexibility, In this mode if it like mine if you press function a menu on the lower right should show a list of options. One is audio and within that option you can have auto gain or manual adjustment.

You may want to invest in a direct box or two and you can never have too many patch cords and or adapters :).

You all have definately given me some things to think about.
I haven't been able to turn on my sequencer in a year....I finally got them reunited again.

I also got the stereo problem taken care of.
