Cool! I just got SM2, looking forward to trying this outATW wrote: ↑Thu Mar 02, 2023 11:12 pm Simple aha moment: had a pitch sequence going with various note lengths, but the sequencer doesn’t output gates/triggers when notes change. To get gates for each note change (that can be used to fire EGs and shape the voice into discrete notes), I needed a way to detect whether pitch CV is rising or falling, and then output a gate when that happens. Something like Ladik’s Derivator or CGS slope detector would probably be great for this, but I don’t have those.
I was able to derive gates for each pitch change using the two channels of Sport Modulator v2 (see the slope detection patch in the sm2 unofficial patch PDF) and a utility mixer. One copy of the pitch Cv to the top channel input, and inverted and offset copy to the bottom channel input. The END outputs are your gates.
I’m curious about other ways to patch this…how do you do it?
For this kind of thing I use the gate out on the quantiser algo on my Disting MK1. Not perfect but does the trick!
