General Discussion on Origin / Re: Let down
« Last post by Philippe on August 30, 2014, 09:55:27 am »
The problem is that the origin simply doesn't sound as good as arturias software equivalents and the polyphony makes it impossible to program a complicated patch and be able to play anything greater than one or two notes at a time. When I play arturias software synths I get inspired and the sounds are big and warm. The origin seems to be lacking. How can this be? It's very disappointing.

The polyphony is directly related to the complexity of the patch(es you are running. Using the Minimoog template in single mode, you can get a number of voices in between 12 to 16 depending on the settings. The 1st preset, P000, uses roughly twice as much CPU. So you divide the polyphony by 2.  If you want to build a polyphonic sound by layering 4 polyphonic sounds similar to P000, then you end up wit a polyphony of 2.

Concerning the quality of the sound, could you be more specific? What are you comparing to what?

Thx

Spark Users Community / Is there a way to rename drums or change icons?
« Last post by SoundGoddess on August 30, 2014, 07:54:40 am »
When creating a new kit it sets up default names and icons for each drum...loading different instruments in will change the name/icon but it seems like there's no way to manually change anything if you're using samples.

Hi Folks, Let me first say hello. I just picked up a Microbrute, it's my first synth and I love it. I'm a guitar player first and foremost and am pretty new to all of this, I had 2 questions I hope some of you can help me with.

1) Right now I'm using my microbrute with headphones, and I have some guitar pedals I want to use with the MB. I have a Moog Ring Mod, EHX #1 Echo (digital delay) and a Joyo 2 channel digital delay. I normally use this all together for ambient guitar work through stacking delays and slight modulating with ring mod. I'd like to run the MB through the same set up. Using the headphones there doesn't appear to be a way to hook this up and actually here the effects. Am I missing something?? Should i get a small audio mixer and then run the chain into that and use the headphone jack on the mixer??

2) I have a 2013 iMac with no mic/audio input. Using the usb connection will the microbrute play nice with garageband? or Audacity? or do i need an audio interface to get this all playing nice?

I'm sort of an extreme hobbyist and trying to use the stuff I have vs getting a bunch of extra gear, so trying to get all this going as easily and inexpensively as possible is kind of the goal.

Thanks so much!

BeatStep - Technical Questions - FAQ / Re: Yamaha MX49 incompatible with BeatStep?
« Last post by dog01 on August 30, 2014, 04:08:40 am »
Hi Joeshiner the beatstep is usb power and the usb is it midi in so if you want to use it with the MX49 you have to use the midi out of beatstep into the midid in of your MX49 or what ever you devices you want to control  but you must have the beatstep plug in to either a usb port on your computer an ipad or a ac to usb adapter to your mains to power it hope that helps regards dog01

BeatStep - Technical Questions - FAQ / Yamaha MX49 incompatible with BeatStep?
« Last post by JoeShiner on August 30, 2014, 02:58:20 am »
I've just bought the Arturia BeatStep, intending to use it primarily with my Yamaha MX49.  But when I got it home and hooked it up, nothing happened at all - no lights, no operation, nothing.  I had hooked it up with the 7 inch (approx.) long dongle that's miniplug on one end (to go into the BeatStep "MIDI out") and MIDI female plug on the other end, and plugged a MIDI cord into the MIDI end of the dongle and the other end into the "MIDI in" on the MX49.  WIth that having produced nothing, I tried hooking up the USB cord (supplied with BeatStep) from the mini-USB socket on the BeatStep, and plugged the other end into the USB "To Device" socket on the MX49 (not that that would make sense), in case the BS needed to be powered via USB, and all hecka lights when on and off all over the BS, but the screen on the MX49 said "Incompatible USB device."  And, of course, no sound or operation.  What's happening?  Am I missing something?  By far, most of my other synths are quite old, whereas the MX49 is brand-new, so I'm more expecting *them* not to work with the BS instead of my new MX49 - my only other relatively new synth is the Novation Xio 25, which only has MIDI out (a poor design decision, IMO, but irrelevant here).  I will try my Karma, E4K/eSynth, and Ensoniq SDP-1, but really want the MX49 to work with the BS!  Can anyone help?

Origin / Origins sound
« Last post by emilshere on August 30, 2014, 12:35:03 am »
The problem is that the origin simply doesn't sound as good as arturias software equivalents. It is not inspiring at all, and the polyphony makes it impossible to program a complicated patch and be able to play anything greater than one or two notes at a time. IM getting rid of mine. Does anyone else feel this way?

KeyLab Presets Zone / Volume of keys uneven!
« Last post by Amalgamoth on August 29, 2014, 11:38:14 pm »
The Modular V plug-in has a fantastic preset called Rock Bottom. Love it! Problem: While recording
(I do this in Garageband) the volume is very uneven. Despite pressing keys at an equal strength, a tone may come through significantly louder at one instance than another, and no matter how careful I play, it seems not possible to get a part that has a nice, even volume range throughout (without tones that are suddenly jumping above the rest, whereas they really shouldn't). It's a bit like
wrITing a SenTEncE thiS waY.

I experimented with keyboard sensitivity settings in Garageband, but that doesn't solve it. Are there specific settings somewhere in Analog Lab to sort this out?

Oberheim SEM V Technical Issues / Oberheim SEM V - should be 64 bit, is 32???
« Last post by EricDeluxe on August 29, 2014, 09:47:27 pm »
Hey

I got the V Collection 3. According to the spec. SEM V should be in 64 bit.
I use Windows 8.1 x64.

When opening SEM V and looking in the "About" info it states 32 bit. Find this a bit strange... I can't see to find the 64 bit program on the computer either... I know I installed them both

Any ideas.?

BeatStep / Clarification on Beatstep question about glide between steps
« Last post by Tweekhead on August 29, 2014, 07:57:54 pm »
Hello,

This may have been covered already, but I have to leave for work...
I'm just wondering if the issue is software that could be upgraded via firmware, or hardware? Will they be releasing a Beatstep MKII?
I love the unit as is, but would love to have this functionality.

This was the reply from Artuia support:

Hi Arthur,
 
First, it is not possible for the moment to give a specific characteristic on 1 single note as you expected.
We are working on a new version in order to provide this possibility.
 
Please accept all apologies for the temporary inconvenience caused.
 
Feel free to come back to me if still any problem or misunderstanding.
Yours cordially,
 
David.
