ARP2600 V3 - Technical Issues / Re: 'Audio' and 'DC' labels. Do they have a use?
« Last post by jeffbart on August 25, 2016, 09:10:57 am »
yes, the switch would be desirable, especially after tantalising us by adding to the graphics!
And, as LBH points out you really have to hear what it's doing to make sense of it. The take-away from that manual for me was 'this switch will make something sound different"  :P
Prophet V3 - Technical Issues / Re: Pro5 doesn't render correctly
« Last post by jhbradley on August 25, 2016, 06:25:48 am »
BTW, I should mention that the V3 version only renders incorrectly if I'm sending it CC data. If I just confine myself to note on/off events, it seems to render perfectly every time.

Also, I'm using the VST3 version of the Prophet V3 plugin, on the principle that it's presumably the New More Better Thing. For the Prophet V2, I'm using VST2... there was no VST3 version, IIRC.
Prophet V3 - Technical Issues / Pro5 doesn't render correctly
« Last post by jhbradley on August 25, 2016, 05:57:52 am »
Environment: Sonar Platinum current release, Win 10 x64.

Test: Create a blank project, instantiate a Prophet V3 instrument. Pick factory preset #22 'harmonium' and record some playing. Then, go draw some CC#7 data (at 16th note granularity) to have the volume swell in and out.

Plays just fine at normal speed. However, if I 'freeze' the track (e.g. render to audio, which runs at faster than real-time speed) the result is random. It doesn't follow the CC volume at all, and sometimes it renders with the first couple of seconds cut off (and the CC volume still ignored/garbled).

A similar thing happens if I don't freeze the track (keeping the VST live), but export the entire project as a 2-channel .wav file for MP3ification and distribution. Unsurprisingly, I guess, because that's also running at faster than real-time speed.

If I instantiate a Prophet V2 and copy the same midi note + CC data to that track, it works flawlessly.
BeatStep / Beatsstep and Ableton's drum rack
« Last post by qiksilver on August 25, 2016, 02:54:54 am »
Perhaps this is really obvious, but I'm missing the link.
Can a typical instance of a drum rack automatically assign the wav files to the pads on the Beat Step? If so, how can I do that?
MicroBrute / Using a US bought Microbrute in Europe - Question
« Last post by cyclical on August 24, 2016, 11:14:16 pm »
Apologies if this is a dumb question but I'm traveling throughout Europe and the middle east with my US bought Microbrute and want to use it. Should I:
a) Use a 110v to 240v converter
b) Purchase a new local 12V DC 1A power supply
c) Simply place a plug shape converter on the existing power supply

Any/none of the above? Thanks in advance for the help!!
ARP2600 V3 - Technical Issues / Re: Sequencer synch with Ableton
« Last post by corum_beasley on August 24, 2016, 09:45:26 pm »
Thanks Jeffbart for the manual link and suggestions. I still have not found a way to synch the start of the 1601 with the start of the Ableton sequencer, why didn't Arturia make this easier it is bread and butter for sure.

LBH thanks for the comments about tempo related to the midi switch which made a lot of sense. I have tried many of the different drop downs for the switches and sockets around the start button but to no avail. Shame i have a few track ideas building up around jams i have had with the 1601. All the best to you both.
Thanks JeffBart for the extracts from the manual they are an amazing resource..have you got the 2500 one too? I have that manual and the 1601 one too, i thought it would help me better understand our synth as the manual we got is not that helpful at times.

The exercises are very thorough and at times if you get distracted read like science papers. I don't have a problem with that as i studied the physics of sound and electronics at university, when we apply it to sound from a a synth it can explain a lot of things. As you say you understand about 60%, which is about what i understand you're not alone there it is a bit baffling eh?

From researching the way distortion effects for guitar pedals the harmonic content of an asymmetrical wave is very interesting and shifts more towards odd harmonic distortion where the asymmetrical as a mix but less volume. See

If the ring modulator has a DC component , like DC offset we know and loathe it skew one half of the waveform into clipping leaving the other clean. So if we allow a DC offset we change the harmonics produced. So having a DC component / switch  would be desirable and allow us to produce some strange wave shape and unusual harmonics.
Spark Users Community / Re: Initial Setup with Cubase Help
« Last post by 019297 on August 24, 2016, 09:31:13 pm »
If you have spark le working in vst on it's own instrument track, what is the goal? You want your keyboard controller to be an input for spark? Or you are sending spark data from the pads/seq to another drum module? Remember cubase has "all midi inputs" as on option for midi routing on any track, so try that and make sure your channel is on all or omni. Some drum stuff assumes channel 10. So try that, it would allow the keyboard and spark pads to control a midi track with spark le as the output. There is also a device option that lets you define what " all midi inputs" really means, so you can include or hide certain devices or virtual ports. It boggles the mind the number of ways you can route it.

I use spark le with cubase in a few ways, so if you let me know specifically what you want connected to what, I can try to help. I have spark working fine, and I use it with a custom drum map as an input controller for groove agent at the same time. I actually run the spark sequencer with groove agent sounds and it works great. I have a midi keyboard, but I am usually using that for something not related to the drums, usually another vsti synth. however, I once accidentally routed keyboard input to my spark software and i was playing drums by slamming on the keyboard. Not as nice as the spark pads, but some master keyboards have a grid of pads now that you might want to route into spark.

There is also a way to boot up sparkLE hardware in midi control mode, I have yet to try that.

is it just always dead? do you get any LED at all? Directly into laptop is the most error proof trial. If it has an led and respond in any way to usb, it's some sort of connection issue. If it's totally dead, I don't know what to say....that Mini usb jack isn't very sturdy at all.
so when exporting from one computer to the other, what do I send? The .spk file and the whole folder? Or is everything in the folder now? Thanks.
