Well, the messages on the screen certainly suggest that's happening,
Sorry, I left it a bit unclear. Though the messages suggest the patch is being saved, it is not being saved. if you go to another patch, and come back, all you get is an initialised patch (sine wave). The only thing that has been saved is the name of the imported patch, everything else is gone.
Yes, like all things wireless, as most are more or less restricted by law to the same 2.4 GHz band, when things get very crowded it can quickly turn into a silent fight for bandwidth, and WiFi often wins (hopefully, nowadays WiFi is pushing towards the 5 GHz band and even other higher bands, so in time this will be less of a problem).
The best thing to do to avoid this kind of thing would be to pair the Sylphyo and Link again when beginning the sound check, making sure all the other wireless gear is on-stage too and active, so that the Sylphyo/Link will fail to pair in the more-crowded channels, and will naturally land into a less-crowded channel.
• When importing a patch, it seems necessary to manually select a new empty patch slot,. Otherwise the current slot will be overwritten. Please make the import command automatically load into a new empty slot.
Good point. Import Patch has now been added to the context menu for each patch slot, so you can say where to put it. That works for me, but maybe it should now also be taken off the File menu, so you have to specify where you want it to go.
The last public version (v0.8.107) offers a set of MIDI routing options (in the Routing submenu of the MIDI section), including DIN Thru.
When this option is enabled, everything on the DIN MIDI input port will be copied as-is to the DIN MIDI output port, with the lowest latency possible.
However, as this could result in MIDI messages being interleaved if several things merge onto the DIN MIDI output, the v1.0 beta offers an additional Safe merge option that ensures all MIDI messages are output without any possible garbling/interleaving.
I am wondering if anyone has looked into the suggestion of @vincent (earlier in this thread) that
it was not moisture as such, the problem, but salt one.
I have had one situation where I started getting erratic notes. I swabbed down my fingers and all the finger pads on the Sylphyo with a slightly damp cloth. It worked immediately and completely to resolve the erratic behavior. However, since it was only a single test, I have not reported it before.
In other cases of erratic notes - they only happen when I first turn on the Sylphyo and I usually just "wiggle my fingers" for maybe 5-10 seconds and the erratic notes disappear and never return during play.
Would love to hear if other have experimented with this ... as @vincent points out, erratic notes could be a real show-stopper ...
Yeah, these are good solutions too. Many times during design I've pondered whether to do solution 2, but I wouldn't because it is sort of complicated to pull off right… but now that we're seeing that mitigating the downsides of the simplest way (sequential evaluation) could be complicated too, maybe it's worth a shot after all.
I'll think about it. Don't hesitate to shoot ideas, I won't hesitate to steal them :).
edit: Evaluating mappings in the reverse order could maybe also work with minimal effort. For modulators, an evaluation in the correct order is better, but there will be cases where you want to add something in the middle of a series of transformations, and the problem will show up again.
@jay-ayliff There are two ways to play the middle C in the recorder mode (assuming you are in base key of C), first with the index finger of the left hand (OxooOooo_), and second with the middle finger of left hand and the octave thumb (XxooOooo_). If your thumb is incorrectly pressing the octave key you might be accidentally playing a C instead of a B?
@milododds I am now getting decent volume both through the headphones and speaker. I wish I knew exactly what I did to fix that particular sub-issue but it's now sounding amazing. I am now learning how every control within the Matrix effects the sound. So far "Tuning" is my favorite. I still have much to learn but I don't feel lost or frustrated any longer. I hope that my post helps anyone who might be trying to use a non-compatible keyboard. Case closed.
If you plug a microphone or an instrument into the LINE IN port, its sound will replace that of the internal piezo behind the case, and will be used as well in the Piezo Pling patch. Can you get any sound with this method?
