So i finaly made the step. Trying to find out if you allready had a chance to bundle your port with the official 1.6.1 on monome?
Maybe i missed it. And thanks a million times for all the work and to help making ansible such a swifty knife.
Offtopic, didnt find the power draw of a 128 on monome page and wanted to find out if my row power 30 will handle the draw just fine when i get a grid one day.
re: power - row 30 should be sufficient for powering grid only if you use ansible (depending on how much power other modules draw, of course). it will NOT be sufficient to power grid if you use earthsea/meadowphysics/white whale. row 30 provides 0.5A on +5. the trilogy modules with grid connected might need up to 0.6A, so it already exceeds what row 30 can provide (and you always want to leave some healthy headroom instead of maxing out your power supply). row 40 should provide sufficient power (again, depending on what other modules you have).
Afaik we did not discuss the possibility to use a old type grid 64 with the earthsea port of Ansible. I read contradict statements about the topic (in general, not ES) so i am just trying to find out if that will work, be powered by Ansible and just be without runes as were mentioned.
We did discuss (at least from my part) if the midi modes could be further developed. I never meant ES to Midi. And i dont know if old grids are basicaly midi while new ones arent
there is nothing module specific about which grids work with which modules - if it works with one module it’ll work with others. specific firmwares or ansible apps will work with 64 but might be not very usable - specific answers will differ for each app as it’s all very UI dependent. @zebra provided some details here.
grids are not midi devices. they use their own protocol (which is different for older grids, but again, the library used by eurorack monome modules will support most models).
Ok i think i get it. An example of „not very usable“ would be that patterns are located in the middle of a 16 pads long grid and would only be partial present on a 8 pad grid. Stuff like that?
Or i get the „perfom pattern“ part wrong in the image documentation. When looking at the official erathsea video it rather feels like i would simply be limited to a 8 step length and loose all the functions that are in the 2nd half of the grid. Not sure if it would be a functional 8 pattern instrument however.
i’m not sure what do you mean by “steps”? you can have up to 128 events per sequence in ansible earthsea. an event is either a “note on” or a “note off”. for chords you have to count each note, so if you use 4 note chords you can have a sequence of up to 16 steps.
you have 2 options - if you route all voices to only one CV/gate output pair then you can use that gate out as the clock. this would obviously limit you to only one CV output. if you still want to have multiple voices then you will need an external gate combiner (logic OR) module to combine multiple gate outputs.
this version currently does not support key mapping.
7x8 since the left column is used for control buttons.
whichever runes are visible on 8x8 grid, even if partially, will work
Just asking here too to make sure.
There is no chance the bundled firmware with this port messes with midi recognition right?
Having an issue that ansible wont „see“ my midi keyboard (other topic) thats why i am asking.
I’m pretty sure you can’t repeatedly trigger the same note with any situation on earthseansible (or earthsea for that matter) when just playing it like a keyboard (without arp and loop enabled). Would be nice if you could though…
