Slider displays and ranges
« on: June 06, 2020, 09:36:56 pm »
Hi
I am really enjoying the Easel. Sounds amazing and it's great to learn more to get me thinking about synthesis properly again.
I'm working through the original 70s manual and have a few questions / requests.
First, the sequential voltage source seems to span a greater range than suggested in the original manual. If you apply it to note-frequency the vst gives 2 octaves, whereas the original only had one octave (unless the manual is wrong*)
Second is that most of the floating, popup labels on the sliders are wrong. Sorry. Not the printed panel ones but the small black box that appears when you move a slider. They are all, slightly lazily, set up as a 0-1 range with 0 at the bottom. None of the 22 sliders is a 0-1 scale. Many are 0-10, some are log scale and there are a few frequency ranges. No one seems to have noticed that the envelope and pulse sections have the smallest values at the top of the slider range 😂.
.
Small things but rather a shame
Is it possible to get a quick fix on these?

Finally a straight out request. It's terribly unBuchla but it would be good to be able to right click on a slider and enter a value, especially given the range crammed in the small space. You could combine this with a quantize function in the sequential voltage control

Heartfelt thanks for making this available as a plug in that cost a lot less than the real thing.
Take care
Philip

Hi and welcome to Arturia forums.

I absolute also think the shown values shall be correct and match the gui values too.
Some value things unfortunately got worse when the value boxes was introduced.
You are not the first to wish for the possibilty to enter values by computer keyboard.

First, the sequential voltage source seems to span a greater range than suggested in the original manual. If you apply it to note-frequency the vst gives 2 octaves, whereas the original only had one octave (unless the manual is wrong*)
I have a feeling you have misunderstood the original manual. A pitch modulation will when the sequential sequencer slider is in max position will be the modulation amount set by the relevant pitch modulation slider. With a modulation setting that give an octave it will be an octave, but only then. Can you please write excactly what you have read in the original hardware synth manual?
