You can use the expander for it too.

In multi mode the CV expander inputs aren't working on cv inputs c and d, anyone have any clue why that may be happening? Some setting I might be missing?

edit: re-ran the calibration procedure and everything works perfectly now.

I believe that if you have the expander you can do multitembrality with CV, as each oscillator bank get its own V/oct and gate input.

The amount of mod slots has been mentioned by other users, and we have a beta firmware update to add more mod slots, in theory 8 mono / 6 poly is possible . . .
Hopefully we can realease this soon
Lovely!

4 slots in poly mode makes things pretty tight.

Been playing with multitimbral midi mode. Which works really well for me.

THIS IS RAD

really having fun with this. loving the sound.

i also experienced the joystick getting stuck in the A position at first - seems to be doing it less now.

i'm wondering if it'll be possible to have more than 4 modulation slots at some point?

for example: slot 1 is used to apply env 2 to harmonics as part of the basic fm patch. slot 2 is used to apply velocity from my midi keyboard to a timbral shift. if i use the joystick to control two other parameters (in poly mode) i now have 4 modulation inputs on the panel that are unavailable... not to mention the LFOs...

perhaps (i hope!) i'm missing something, but it seems a bit limiting with so many sources and destinations available...
Thanks for purchasing the module, and thanks for posting the great video !

What about more envelopes as well or instead? Could be nice to be able to have atleast one per channel.

As mentioned above, the expander can do what you’re asking… however, all 4 channels share the same envelope so the drum kit might not work the way you might hope. Hopefully envelopes could be per channel in the future.

In the meantime, you could send audio out of the 2x outputs and into a VCA and control it that way… but, there seems to be a little latency and the pitch change seems to happen a touch later than the gate which controls the external envelope (I’m hoping this could be addressed in a FW update). A gate delay works to get things sounding tighter. (Note, it’s tight if everything is done in module.)

Oh word, yeah I just freed up a 34hp pod and was deciding between this and a Rample or the new Erica LXR. Given the single envelope on the RYK and the hundreds of dollars I'll save, leaning toward the LXR. This module does sound amazing though. So crisp and hi fi in the demos y'all been posting!

Although . . . there are actually 8 envelopes in Poly or Mult mode - 2 envelopes per voice
But as pointed out earlier, the 4 x AM envelopes share the same settings, and the 4 x FM envelopes share the same settings

We are working on the next firmware update to add different settings for each envelope . . .

I noticed that changing presets is pretty much immediate so this would be a great addition indeed.

Moved on a few modules recently to change things up a bit and make some space. Had little idea what to fill it with. Was thinking about the TipTop Buchal modules. But there's not enough space for all of those that I'd like. Soooooooooo ......... might have to Vector Wave it :woah: Just waiting for Juno UK to take stock :tu:
Thanks for taking the time checking out the manual !
You can still buy from our webshop, but you will be waiting a long time for Juno, as they will not be stocking our module.
Oh! I saw they had one of your other modules so assumed it would be showing up at some point. It's my go to store as, even with shipping to Australia + import tax, modules usually end up being considerably less than if we buy local. It's a real shame. But we get well shafted in Australia on this stuff unfortunately. I'll check the web shop :tu:
