@tugrikyan thank you! I’ll try to make it less esoteric.
maybe, I could try it and tell you.
anyway a manual should be there for the users
Just my 5 cents here again - for starters, I would very much appreciate your short comments on knobs (what they do), and what 3 color mods are for (below 16 knobs and especially in output section)
Here goes the draft of the manual. It’s not everything yet, but it will get there.
Entangled Voltages v2.1.2.pdf (393.8 KB)
And the updated plugin.
Where can I download Rack 2.1.1?
all previous and current versions and SDKs can be downloaded from :
This looks really interesting - I love MSEGs!.
I’m not too familiar with the Performer, but this does remind me of the Acid Rain Maestro - it’s worth checking that out if you are not familiar with it.
The manual is helping but it would be useful if you said something about the knobs on the right. I figure the top one next to the clock input is a multiplier/divider? and I figured the bottom one was a steps knob but that can’t be right as it goes up to 16 and your module has 2 sets of 8 steps. It might be clearer if you visually separated those knobs from the clock and reset inputs, which would allow you to then label the knobs.
A few ideas/suggestions for things I’d like to see in a module like this:
Per step clock multiplications/divisions - so you could have steps of different lengths like: 1/16, 1/16, 1/8, 1/16, 1/16, 1/4 for example. This would really help in terms of adding groove. (The Maestro does this really well).
A log/lin/exp knob for shaping the curves - ideally per step but even a ‘global’ knob (or one per envelope) would be useful. I haven’t tried it yet and I might be wrong but from the manual this currently seems to be a ‘curve sequencer’ that doesn’t do curves?
An option to make it one envelope of 16 steps
Unipolar/bipolar output options (because this would also be very useful as an LFO)
I agree with what Dave said about having some visualisation - looks like there would be enough room for the 4 rows of knobs plus a thin wide screen at the top which showed the result.
There’s a lot of potential for a module like this so I look forward to seeing how it develops. Great name too.
Thanks a lot for your thorough feedback. I do agree on features but one of my design goals is something that I’ll be able to build physically. I’m actually thinking of having two versions of the module. One that’s purely for VCV Rack and the other one as proof of concept for a physical thing. I’ll keep your suggestions in mind (and in my notebook) for sure.
And ofc I’ll extend the manual very soon.
Maestro looks very interesting! Thanks.
Your are very right about bipolar. I even think it should be the default mode.
As I love make intricate rythme i’m already like your MSEG Module.
By the Way what is the meaning of the button between the two output. I know it will be in the doc soon… But I can"t wait haha.
Just posted an update.
OK, Mac Build now loads fine. On to test…
Just discovered a huge bug in entanglement mode. Working on it.
One error in the manual I think - it says:
“CLK input takes a 24PPQN BPM clock signal that runs the sequencer. The easy way to provide it is Impromptu Clocked module with a clock multiplier set to a maximum of x96.”
But a 24ppqn clock signal is a x24 output from Clocked. A x96 output from Clocked is 96ppqn.
Pardon my music theory. I got to fix it (either the manual or the module).
v2.1.4 bug fix version. Hopefully fixes the behaviour of the entanglement button (the button between the outputs).
Thanks for some long awaited clarifications, Nikita, but what about those same 3 color mods in output section? (+ I apologise in advance for not testing yet your latest updates).
