Hello Lines, I have a very simple + straightforward question:
While using kria via ansible, I’ve patched my CV output into Just Friends’ PITCH/TIME to make notes. All is well.
I’m encountering some minor confusion however in how to properly patch my ansible’s gate into Just Friends, in order to produce an effect where whenever a note is ‘not actively being triggered’ in kria, no sound is produced (the envelope is fully gated).
Does anyone have insight into how to properly patch ansible’s gate to just friends, in order to ensure rests between notes are kept intact?
I’m under the impression that kria’s gating controls via grid are also a path towards ensuring my rests are in fact rests — If anyone can run me through how kria might be configured to produce cleanly separated notes, I would most appreciate.
not sure i understand correctly, but either you need to run jf through a vca that is opened by say an envelope triggered by kria, or try jf plume mode which opens the voices wheb gated with a lpg characteristic sound. sound/sustain/dummy cable into run (or send cv to change decay time)
Just tried this out for the first time. The results are great! I could only really find one sweet spot on the Intone though, any advice on how to find more ? Is it based on the scale of notes you are sending to JF via V/Oct ?
This table is from jf technical maps where you’ll find plenty of information in case you haven’t seen it already. As for the lastest firmware there should be more sweet spots as they were re-implemented by trent.
i need a little help if possible… connected ansible to jf for the first time, followed the docs and this thread and it’s kind of working but not completely. so far ive only had luck with kria, and usually have to reload a preset several times before it starts working. then if i load another ansible app or change modes on jf, everything stops working again, even when i try switching back to kria/sustain mode. i’ve double checked my i2c connections and they look correct. any other ideas?
A couple of things:
JF in synth mode needs velocity info which is tied to gate duration in Kria.
In the Config settings of Kria you may need to adjust the base frequency of JF.
I’m more sure but maybe your not getting any perceived pitch as JF’s base frequency may to low?
hmmm no, already checked that… it’s weird bc it works fine and then just stops when i switch apps i might try running the firmware update again in case something got corrupted somehow. appreciate the help!
