Since that topic came up again, here are a couple of other suggestions and remarks...
I also agree with more modularity, in the sense of more freedom to choose modules. For instance, I would like to be able to unload the fixed filter bank, and replace it by a second sequencer, and I would like to be able to freely patch the delay.
Another point would be to have more patchable outputs, rather than just the two standard ones.
I'd like to add… how about that screwy mixer? Can we have something that actually makes sense?
I don't find the mixer so bad. The only point I would like to see corrected is to be able to use them as proper VCA's Currently, if using a modulation Envelope as modulation source in the mixer, it seems impossible to have the signal really go to silence, if the envelope goes to zero.
And the sequencer…geez, if you ever wanted to make a case for real hardware vs virtual, that thing would be the basis. Almost impossible to tune steps.
Well, I guess that's what the dedicated "sequencer inputs" on the oscillators are for. However, they always give perfect tuning.
It's a wild beast of frustration. I'd also like a module that did some simple analog operations, like inversion, DC offset adjust, gain…not sure if Mg did that in hardware, but it would be great to have in this thing.
But, most importantly, I hope that some of the long standing bugs will be fixed some day. Example is the SINE out of the Oscillators, which sometimes freezes in pitch and does not react to keyboard pitch or sequencer anymore (while the other waveforms do).
Also, it would be great if the response of the 12dB filters could be improved. Right now, there is a significant lag when the frequency is changed rapidly (e.g. through key tracking). Even if the that might be (?) a feature of the hardware, it would be great if one could switch that off.
I really hope that there will be a version 3 of the modular one day, as (apart from these issues) it is a great synth.
