External device into the Matriarch Delay?

Post by Ted H » Mon Apr 12, 2021 8:56 am

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 within the Matriarch itself. (Plugging the GM output to the Matr. Delay-Input 1 cuts the nice stereo effect of the Matriarch sounds.) Hope someone can prove me wrong.

What about taking the output of the Grandmother and plugging into one of the Matriarch’s mults? Then take 2 cables from the mult and plug into the L/R delay inputs?

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.

Oh, ok! I see what you’re going for now. I bet there’s some workaround for that. If I think of something I’ll be sure to post it. Good luck!

I think you would need to take the Matriarch signal out before the delay and go into a mixer, along with the external source, and patch the output of the mixer into the delay. You could bring your external source and patch it into the on board mixer, but then it would still run through the filter and VCA, but it sounds like you are trying to avoid that scenario. Blending post-VCA inside the Matriarch is not possible.
