Re: Newbe help

I'm new, too, but your post is a little confusing. Best advice at this point is go to YouTube, find Cherry Audio Channel and watch the beginner videos to start with. If you need more help then come back, with a few more details - what DAW and what you're using to produce midi. Chances are it'll be s...

Re: Patch changes/MIDI/Reaper

Hi Steve, I did a similar test after I'd installed the VST2 version. I'm using a Nektar Impact LX25+, which I programmed four of the drum pads to send CC trigger messages. Works a treat in both VST2 & 3. MIDI Learn works fine, but in both cases, while you can save the assignments for any of the virt...

Re: Patch changes/MIDI/Reaper

Steve, thanks for the reply. I think we have our wires (patch cables?) crossed... I abandoned the patch changing in favour of using variations. Nevertheless, I've learned something from you as I wasn't aware of the VST vs VST3 situation. I've been working under the assumption that VST3 was the new, ...

Re: Patch changes/MIDI/Reaper

Morning Peeps, Thought it was time for an update... After FOUR days f***ing around, scratching my head, swearing and chain smoking, I finally got there. So, for anyone in the same position - middle aged long serving guitarist/boffin, new to synths, and probably specifically a Reaper 'issue' - here g...

Re: Patch changes/MIDI/Reaper

Just investigate it and it will become clear. Signals from within the patch itself can increment, decrement, or randomly select the variation. Info in the user guide on this page. https://docs.cherryaudio.com/voltage-modular-user-guide/io-panel LOL... I think, maybe you overestimate my competence? ...

Re: Patch changes/MIDI/Reaper

Thanks for the reply. I'll look in to that. Like I say, it's a learning project. I have time to mess about. I'm just looking for automated solutions, I s'pose. If I was against the clock, I'd probably set up four tracks and record separately' Is the Variation thing controlled by MIDI or will it be s...

Patch changes/MIDI/Reaper

Hiya, Another 'newbie' question. I'm learning away merrily, enthusiatic amateur, so there's no pressure... I'm setting up a song which uses four sequencer patterns for different sections of the song. I want to save them as four patches and then use MIDI to select the patch at the appropriate point i...

Re: What Am I Doing Wrong - newbie

Thanks for the explanation.

I'm sure I'm going to be asking many equally basic questions over the coming months.

Re: Your manual's gonna have to get a LOT more basic for us newbies....

I'm new myself and understand your frustration, but from what I can fathom, VM is laid out, and works like a hardware modular synth. My advice, youtube, Cherry Audio, playlists - tutorials. Excellant way to gain a little understanding. The manual... well, it's a bit like buying a Corolla and expecti...

Re: What Am I Doing Wrong - newbie

It wasn't.

That 'fixed' it. Thanks.
So, what is the gain knob actually for?
