Sub 37 Arpeggiator flicker and LCD Too Bright

Post by Man-Machine » Thu Apr 23, 2015 2:46 am

I love my Sub 37 but I hate the damn bright Arpeggiator light flickering, even the LCD is too bright for my taste.

I am currently using a black tape on the Arpeggiator light. I am also using a piece of black cardboard paper I can flip to see the lcd screen I hardly ever go to.

Is there any plans to add a setting to dim those lights? At least stop the Arpeggiator from flickering?

Please!!!

Speaking of sacrilege...

Here's something I do to stomp boxes that blind me with ultra-bright blue LEDs:

Get a 10-pack of Sharpies (multi colors) and carefully color the front of the LED.

You can use a Sharpie to remove Sharpie off plastic, letting you experiment with different color blends until you get it right.

Hand Sanitizer is pretty good at removing Sharpie off solid objects (and at least helpful when on clothing).

Use a Q-Tip with just a little Hand Sanitizer on it.

Here's a thread with a solution to LCD Screen brightness:

I've done it to both of my Sub 37s and my Solar Phatty.

I'm working on making a video showing how much fun it is to MIDI sync two Sub 37s, two delays, and a BeatBuddy drum pedal.

One hand is playing a Sub 37's Arps/Seqs for bass, the other hand is dictating chordal Arps, and my foot is triggering drum fills and Verse/Chorus switching. With LATCH ON you then have two free hands to tweak bass, chords, and delays.

Basically, you can improvise entire grooves in real time.
