It's planned to support REX files - however - this will propably not happen earlier then Winter NAMM2006 with version 2.0.

@Jorg
did you manage to come to a decision on the sequencing programming question (mute on encoder down) and a possible parameter to control behaviour, or is this now stalled?
also, I noticed LS-TR is still not re-triggering (I did report on earlier beta, but I think perhaps missed :) )

thanks

I thought this was a problem earlier. It never seemed to work with my Asynth parts, but I also was sequencing notes with a vol of zero, which, always worked fine, but not with LS-TR. If I made all of the volumes something like 63, I would then hear the notes. Is that possibly what's going on with your setup?

Are you guys sure to know what you are talking about? I just checked the different retrigger and note priority types of the A-Synth. They are all working fine. 8)

The parameter offers combinations of retrigger and non retrigger types with different note priority settings. These modes are especially important for monophonic synth parts. When playing fast synth solos it's often hard to get a retrigger when playing a little bit sluggish. When notes are overlapping and retrigger is not activated, the envelope will remain in the sustain phase for the new note. Most people know that behaviour from old monophonic synths with a basic analog trigger functionality like on the MINImoog.

Note priority also was different on different synths. Some played the highest and other the lowest pressed note of the keyboard. As the first synths had no retrigger, it was almost impossible to play percussive sounds very fast as they always tend to overlap a little bit and halt the trigger.

New Circuits had been developed to overcome that problems. There were also modification specialists around who offered retrigger kits for synths like the Minimoog. These circuits created a new trigger out of a change of voltage. So, when the player changed the keyboard key, the pitch voltage became different and the retrigger circuit sent a new trigger impulse. These modes werde still not perfect. A higher note would for example not retrigger, if the keyboard runs with lowest note priority. The queen of all everything for staccato sequences is the last note priority with retrigger.
Performing fast solos with retriggering is sometimes good but sometimes bad - depending on what you want to play. If you don't want the envelopes to get triggered on every note, you can use the limitations for special solo phrases. For that reason all different modes are more or less a creative playground and not really necessary anymore.

These are the modes without retrigger:
High: Highest note priority
Low: Lowest note priority
Last: Last note priority.

HI-TR: Highest note priority with retrigger.
LO-TR: Lowest note priority with retrigger
LS-TR: Last note priority with retrigger

sorry, my mistake, as you say, when i tested it today, it was clearly fine ... no idea what i did before :(
sorry for the noise ... back to enjoy the speccy :)

one idea:

is it possible to route midi clock from midi in also to midi out ?

for example if the the spectralis is connected to other gear or maybe two spectralis synced from one source and you want to send midi notes to a synth from the spectralis the synth gets no clock.

in the moment i have to use at least one midi merger. I have two midi mergers in my herrenhandtasche to get midi and clock out from spectralis.

that would be what midi through is for .. init? or am I misunderstanding something..

Midi thru is sending a signa that comes from another midi device thru the spectral is. I think they want to have an option to change midi in to midi out? Seems hardware based and not possible, but I don't know.

For example in a jam situation you needs a external clock for syncing several devices and you would use a midi keyboard for programming sequences.. it is not possible without a merger.

so my midi hardwarre setup in the herrenhandtasche is looking like that

IN:
1---- ( notes )
2---- ( Clock )

Merged for clock and Midikeyboard Input in spectralis

1 ----- Spectralis Midi out ( for sequencing notes on external synths )
2 ----- Thru for Clock ( for the sync of the external synth )
Merged and connected to external synth and fx


i use this setup last 10 years but wouldn ´t it be amazing if the spectralis will send clock on midi out ;)
that would make sense in my mind..


if the spectralis is master it sends a clock from midi out and notes. so maybe it is possible to route the clock from in to out and thru.

imagine ...if your in a group jam situation and you want to forward the clock to a different person with a groovebox and you use the midi out he gets also you sequenced notes and CCs.. thats why i use a external sync .. mostly my 707 with a big 8 port merger to spread the clock ;) ..

A clock that connects to some devices over a soft thru and to others directly, will always need a sync delay compensation. A clocks should always connect directly to synced devices.
