Sample names

- Don't use underscores! (everything before the underscore will be truncated)
- Use max 7 positions (or else it will be truncated, e.g. "elektronmachine..." becomes "elktrnm", so vowels except for the first position will be cut first)

(Remember: If a sample is not loaded check for 16 bit 44.1 KHz!)

SpecImp005 categories

Don't choose one of the following categories:
- Other
- Drum-Loop
- Perc-Loop
- FX-Loop
- Tonal-Loop

These categories are not used in the Spectralis and the samples will therefore not be found (with OS 1.03O).

I had a new breakthru with the specki today.

I learned to organize my sounds. for example if i want
to build up a track i can save different states of a certain sound.

For Example the ASynth has 4 different sound edit versions.
Short Tight ENV Version / Free LONG RELEASE Version / Glide Version

Now building a track with the Specki is fun!!!

When playing live or jamming you can quickly recall FX presets on the fly with quick sound ..

First store a few FX setting in Quicksound

*Press Transpose (Quicksound on sp mk2)
*press FX 1 or 2 (if it isn’t already lit)
*Press Save + step key to store the FX

so now make a few presets say..on step1> a flangy one ..step 2> nice delay..3> extreme delay.. step key 4> crazy fx madness delay ..etc

so now when jamming, you can recall the fx settings simply by
*pressing Quicksound (FX on)
*press a lit step key

and you’ll instantly recall up a delay type.. try jumping into a few presets (the sp handles the switches beautifully e.g without a glitch! Things like this are great creative aids live and very useful in a live arrangement …like> go for crazy madness delays ..just before you jump into another pattern ..

its simple 101 but I had to give a heads up as its such a fantastic live tool !!

Try this:

Create loops with different sounds(Different sounds per loop). Without effects but a rhythm. Use different BPM´s and edit the loops with the Sequencer (not the Beatmatrix). You will get cool shuffle grooves for ordinary minimal tracks :P

For example try this( this are grooveloops but good enough for a try)

When trying to make an open hi-hat sound "close" do the following:

From Jorg himself:

"I am placing a second trigger with a velocity of zero after the audible trigger. That velocity 0 trigger mutes the sound. That only works, when the velocity is assigned to the instrument volume. I used that for the snare room FXs as well. I can create gated reverb FXs just by adding this "mute" trigger and each reverb can run with an independent length..."

And in the manual, Page 91:

TIP: If you are not happy with the result of the velocity control, it could be the result of you not having activated velocity control for your selected sound, or you may have it set to a very low value. Access the corresponding part using the [Select]-button and turn the (VCA-Level)-encoder, while holding down the [Shift]-button. Setting a value of 127 will give you the highest possible dynamic range.

During live play, you accidentally click on a different pattern. The Spectralis WILL take you to that next pattern unless...

Hit the 'play' button twice. This will momentarily stop the song, BUT will start it exactly where you left off, so the effect will only be a momentary silence, but you will see that the next pattern is no longer selected.

If you hit stop, and then play, you will start at the beginning of the pattern you are on.
If you let it ride out, you will go to the next pattern that you chose.

Double your polyphonic MIDI parts (i.e., use the Asynth section as three more parts for sequencing external gear: polyphonic)
