You should not use the knob when creating FM sounds. That is a macro control for the creation of detuned oscillators and oscillators tuned to intervals - at a pitch where the first C on a keyboard is the C1. It's good when creating lead sounds, sequencer sounds etc.but not really for FM sounds.

Hey - you are right. The octave leds are not working anymore..

Noticed something when formatting SM / xD cards in the spec 1
I have a number of 128MB xD's. When i format them in the unit they become un-available in windows over USB or in a USB reader and show up as a raw disk. I have 1 working 128MB SM card which formats the same way as the xD's.
The spec seems to be able to read the cards though.
Trying 64MB SM cards it works fine and shows up as FAT 16. A 64MB xD formats as raw again.
Formatting the 128MB cards under windows with 16K blocks solves the problem. Guess the same for the 64MB xD.

Ok, I will stop touching it.

You can still use it for a lot of sounds, where subtractive synthesis with multiple oscillators is the target.

But then too, it can only be used if all oscillators are tuned one octave down. So you can't use it if oscillator 2 is pitched up an octave or two because it will jump back to -12. It's okay though i'll just do the finetune detune of oscillators manually.
Thanks again for all you do. The speckie is awesome!

If I may add a some ideas to the ongoing discussion..

as the macro does fixed intervals we must set absolute values here. Otherwise the function makes no sense.

I don´t have the spectralis here atm but I don´t remember the OSC jumping -12 on that marko control (I´m stil on 1.68) don´t have time to keep up with the updates .. :mrgreen: .. But I´m have to admit there are times when using OSCs for modulation, percussion or other non pitch duties this global marco setting is not always wanted, I mean it´s very nice as is and is great to tune/find a harmonium for a patch but it´s also a nice performance feature .. .. it would be a practical option to able to
Scale each OSC to Marko….(sub page)


We are planning to add motiv segment copy and paste function


Have the spectralis force the user to use fav :twisted: for copy paste, so Fav gets familiar in global flow, its up front access to every setting from fav motifs, drum, & seq lines, to seq targets and mixer configuration (tracking).. I find this to be strong workflow,… many slots for each part/mode is not needed if memory is an issue.

So if instead of a page for copy /paste page… the only thing needed is an append command , Append just copies from step x to last bar and pastes it after last bar

...Now just an ide: For the function to pose as global, place Append under the VOLUME encoder. And take use of this encoder real estate space
shift function for Volume Encoder lock to seq resolution .. Master volume is always access-able = shift + volume encoder
Seq Res Appand MasterVol
[ 16th] X…4 50
^Now Volume Encoder functions as Seq Resolution and the feature can always be locked to volume again (is on master volume by default)

I think it´s worth a thought,(seq resolution we use all the time vs volume not as often) Its nice encoder space , it´s easy to ''shift to'' volume'' and this brings into play an extra encoder for workflow, step line performance and Append (auto copy/paste)

no worries, we all have different ways of doing things... its interesting to hear you like it that way.

a question though, why do you press/hold the step encoder when your looking for the next note?
you can play notes without the encoder pressed, and they will sound... so you could just press the step-encoder when you have decided which note you want.
(it could be Im missing some obvious difference... or its doesn't quite work for some reason)


When I'm coming up with a melody, I like to hold the encoder and as it's playing, that note hits at that specific time. Sometimes, I don't know which note will work until I hear it being hit at that time, so I hold the encoder, let the sequence play through to hear it... then decide if I like it there... I'm sorry, I'm finding it, as sort of an abstract thing, hard to explain. I'll have to go and test it to tell you. I just know that, as this is how it works on the accelerator, and I don't really care for the way the sequencer works on that... that I'm pretty sure I'd not like it on the Spectralis either.

I just hope there's a way that eventually it'll be made as an option to switch on or off, because I understand why you want it done that way... but I can't help be hope to hell it doesn't change for me either :/

Thanks for all the good input! But I can tell you one thing for sure - I will never put a sequencing function onto the volume knob. For beginners, the Spectralis is already complicated enough. Putting such a function onto the master volume knob is not very intuitiv....

Hey, since this thread is so active, I may as well ask..

What's the status on the overdub button? I've learned to live without it, but it sure would be handy..

Also, just curious, but I remember reading long ago, that the spectralis had a possibility to have .rex file handling implemented. Is that still a possibility, or completely off the table? The spectralis is already next level, but .rex would be crazy fun.
