Discussion (English preferably) / Re: Attemping to use the river in new ways

My apologies for the long response - I thought describing my setup might be helpful.

The longer the better!

I find it interesting how others are using The River.

I like this idea of using Layer 4 with a flexible MIDI channel.

I’m going to try that. Thanks!

I have no experience with the Cirklon, but having been using a Squarp Pyramid with the River, and I can replicate exactly what you're trying to achieve.

In my tests I let the River's arpeggiator run, then played simple chords while recording a sequence into the Pyramid (using its "Live" mode). The Pyramid recorded the arpeggiated notes, which could then be routed back to the River (or any other Midi device).

I then tried the reverse - sequencing some simple chords without arpeggiation, then routing back into a River Layer with the arpeggiator running. It worked like a charm.

I have the Pyramid set up to be the Midi hub of my studio. Using the Pyramid's Omni Multitrack mode, I have each synth set to its own Midi channel, connected via Midi merge and thru boxes. With a project properly set up on the Pyramid, this allows me to let the sequencer run while I add parts live to different tracks using the different Midi channels.

The River becomes a very powerful component in this setup. I use three of the River's four layers as separate synths on their own Midi channels. These channels receive Midi from the Pyramid. The fourth layer is my control layer, outputting Midi to the Pyramid, which then directs it to the various synths (including back to the River).

During live sequencing, I then keep the RiverKey set to display Layer 4's Midi Out, and use the keyboard as my controller. By switching Midi Out channels on the fly, I can switch between not only the different River layers, but any instrument in the Midi chain and play it from the River's keyboard.

Here are my typical RiverKey settings for this scenario:

Layer 1 - Source: MIDI  Dest: River  Chn In: 1
Layer 2 - Source: MIDI  Dest: River  Chn In: 2
Layer 3 - Source: MIDI  Dest: River  Chn In: 3
Layer 4 - Source: River  Dest: MIDI  Chn Out: XX (where XX is the channel you want to control)

Number of voices and program for each Layer assigned as needed. No need to set keyboard note ranges for each Layer in this setup.

To test your questions, I set up the RiverKey much as you described:

1)

Layer 1 - Source: MIDI Dest: River Chn In: 1 (ARP: OFF)
Layer 4 - Source: River Dest: Midi Chn Out: 1 (ARP: ON)

2)

Layer 1 - Source: MIDI Dest: River Chn In: 1 (ARP: ON)
Layer 4 - Source: River Dest: Midi Chn Out: 1 (ARP: OFF)

In both cases, the River performed as expected. Again I have no experience using the Cirklon, but it seems like it should be possible to do what you want. The River is sending out Midi note information for each step as its arpeggiator runs.

My apologies for the long response - I thought describing my setup might be helpful.

With aftertouch attack/release, I didn't mean the attack/release of VCA or VCF, but the attack/release of the applied aftertouch value - so it won't be applied and released roughly when I apply the aftertouch and when I release it (but still keep the key pressed), but rather smoothly.

Il faut lancer l'application "The river Updater". Et suivre la procédure, c'est super bien expliqué.
Il n'y a pas de lien pour le download ;)

Merci d avance

Discussion (English preferably) / Riverkey transmit
« Last post by RobertAmsterdam on February 28, 2022, 10:14:03 PM »
I try to use the profile manager, but without success unfortunately. I follow the steps described elsewhere in this forum and established a midi connection to River-Key, but sending the sysex file achieves nothing. Something seems to be transmitting: the send button in the software remains lit for a little while. I must be doing something wrong here.

I don’t know what to fill in for “ID” in the Midi connection screen, so maybe this is the problem, or do I need to enable some sort of ‘receipt’ mode on the River?

I also saw a promise to enable profile creation from the River itself in a further update. Any news on this?

Thanks for helping out!

OK merci Laurent, je vais regarder ce que tu indiques.

Le faire oui ;) même avec un whisky dans chaque main. Mais le problème est le support quand plus rien ne marche parce que la mise à jour a crashé le système. Il faudrait que je refasse de nombreux essais, que je vérifie avec les nouveaux OS, et que je dispose d'une procédure de dépannage à distance simple.
La mise à jour midi, c'est bien en théorie mais entre les paramétrages de MIDI OX , des buffersetc..., ce n'est pas si simple.

It would be cool if we could get an updated magnetic strip for the river key, maybe as a group order or something.

Yes, it should be possible to order the beatsteps supports, the manuals and the magnetic thinkers from the site.  I'm just worried about the shipping costs and customs declarations for all shipments outside of Europe. I have tried economy shipping for EPROMs, it's not great. So I end up with potentially higher shipping costs than the product. But I will try to put this in place anyway.

Ok for bug and sensibility of tune button.
For aftertouch for change attack and release time, I can't understand this function ;) Aftertouch if know before release and after attack. I c'ant change release or attack with aftertouch ?
