adding an octave toggle switch to Grandmother?

Postby ummagumma » Sun Nov 25, 2018 11:54 pm

does anyone know if it's possible to add a 2 way toggle switch onto the GM, to control octave up/down?

the stock keyboard combination is driving me nuts...I often end up stopping the arp/seq, or not triggering the octave

a simple 2 way toggle would be much easier to use, while playing

*edit* I guess it would need to be 3 way.....left/right and a center sprung position?

or more maybe just a two button pad. but a toggle would be easier to install I think

I think any hardware modification would be difficult to hope for.

That being said, some users from my country had this idea (please bear with me, I have no Grandmother...): invert the behaviour of the three buttons, that is use combination for sequence/arpeggiator management and no combination for transposition management. Even better: have the possibility to choose.

EDIT: there! :)
