Discussion (English preferably) / Re: Volume calibration of one voice
« Last post by Ole4uu on November 13, 2022, 08:46:51 PM »
I've done some more checking.  I've just started to explore patch making on the River, that is how I discovered this. All patches seems to have the same level set for each voice, one patch may have all voices set to 0 and another voice may have all set to -10.
As I listen more closely there are 2 voices that are too high - voice 2 and 7. When I lower these two with -2 it is fine. I've tested for several included patches incl INIT and also my own patches. I believe this is caused by inproper adjustment of level on the 2 voice cards. I do not believe other Rivers have the same issue with voice 2 and 7, but maybe other voices - if so this may not be fixed by firmware but maybe by adjusting potmeter in the voice card ?

One of my voices is louder than the others. (when I repeatedly press the same key every 8 note is higher in volume).
Is it just to open up the River and inside there will be 8 adjustment pots for volume - and are they marked ?
Is there an overview somewhere of all adjustment pots inside the River ?

What does Laurent mean when he says OS 2.15 is online? I have no idea where to find it.

Bonjour, j'ai rentré une guitare électrique dans The River et j'ai été très étonné par la qualité du son !
Je voulais juste être sûr qu'il était totalement impossible de router le signale vers le filtre (comme dans mon Voyager) !!

Belle journée à tous
Erwan

Any kind of vu meter (on the LCD display)that could help feeding the machine at the right level for Chorus BBD or the internal mixer (ext input, Oscar 1,2, filter etc).

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.
