Sirin drone mode doesn't always work.

Anyone else have this issue on Sirin or Minitaur. It seems to work when it wants to. No other feature seems to have that issue.

Is there a trick to it? Seems pretty straight forward.

Drone mode never worked for me until I used the pots calibration SysEx commands. Presumably because I could never hit the max value of the amp sustain knob when using the shift panel combo.

Thanks for the response. Where can one get the commands you used?

Pot Calibration:
Set all panel pots to minimum, then send: F0 04 08 14 00 00 F7.
Set all panel pots to maximum, then send: F0 04 08 14 01 00 F7.
Set VCO2 Freq and EG Amount pots exactly centered, then send:
F0 04 08 15 00 00 F7.

(the file I just linked and example I posted were for the Minitaur. For Sirin, the product id needs to be 18 instead of 08).

Pot Calibration: (for Sirin)
Set all panel pots to minimum, then send: F0 04 18 14 00 00 F7.
Set all panel pots to maximum, then send: F0 04 18 14 01 00 F7.
Set VCO2 Freq and EG Amount pots exactly centered, then send:
F0 04 18 15 00 00 F7.
