Patch Volume Level

Post by eltobosolo » Sun Oct 18, 2020 9:51 pm

Hi All,

I'm finding that the (maybe perceived) volume level across various presets is extremely variable. Using out-of-the-box presets as examples, GAMELAN GONG is so quiet that even with the VCA turned up to max I can't really get enough output without cranking up the master volume to about 3 o'clock, at which point there's quite a bit of noise. FUTURELAND by comparison is super loud at with the master at just noon. Is there a gain stage I'm missing? Maybe it's just that GAMELAN GONG is only using ring mod, whereas FUTURELAND is using oscillators, ring mod, and noise?

Thanks!
Tobias
