Ansible Kria Feature Requests


#122

Yeah, like @Jonny, I use either Beast’s Chalkboard or an O_C running Quantermain with quantization off to traverse octaves via the two buttons (for up to four channels). I set Kria’s octave page up one or two octaves up as my ‘center’ and make adjustments with my ‘adder/subtracter’ as needed. It works pretty great.


#123

the beauty of the V/Oct pitch control is that it will work as @TonyIdaho suggests: a half-step in the scale corresponds to a difference of 1/12th of a volt, so ascending and descending will swap if the voltage is precisely inverted. That’s a non-trivial “if”, but it should be possible with an attenuverter set full negative.

ahh actually hold on, it will change major intervals to minor intervals and vice versa, so I was wrong, but it will do something musically interesting at least


#124

What if the scale is not equal tempered?


#125

the V/Oct standard does presume an equal-tempered scale, but that’s also all that Kria outputs as well.


#126

Ok, thanks to you all. I’ll try the Oc Quatermain solution as I have one in my system. Oh, and happy new year!


#127

Fillowing O&C with Marbles makes this even better.
Quantermain does a lot of its stuff step-wise. With Marbles, one can sample and loop the O&C output sequence, dial in a key change or whatever on O&C and then release the Marbles Dejavu for smooth sequence transitions. It very easy.


#128

Since the output of Kria is already quantized and playing, it sounds like @fourhexagons is doing octave transpositions on the fly with no need to loop or record any sequences.


#129

O&C does octave and key changes one step at a time. Going +- 1on octave or a half-step on key is smooth. Going further, isn’t smooth wo/ sampling.
For me, I don’t sample for octave changes because I only move 1 octave at a time but I do sample for key changes because they represnt more steps of movement.


#130

I dig what you’re both saying, @Jonny and @Frogstar. I always end up using Marbles for additional voices to layer with Kria, but I like the idea of running Kria through Marbles for further processing of the melodic material. It’s now something on my list to check out.


#131

Sounds like a fun approach that can lead to some musical results. :slight_smile:


#132

possible to add swing percent?
could be implemented in another modifier page like duration


#133

I’m wondering if there is anyway to have a midi mode that outputs clocks for syncing and a mono voice.
I’d really like to have my op-1 sequence a voice and sync the rest of my system.
Could also be cool to have a few different clock times too.


#134

Like this idea! Hope this gets it own control in the timing page possibly?


#135

Ive been thinking about this as well, some sort of swing or microtiming?

Maybe instead of the ratchet page, we could have a subdivision page that subdivides each note by a chosen global value (1-6?). And then have on/off buttons for each subdivision. That way you could still get identical ratcheting behaviour by setting the repeats to 4 and turning on as many as you’d like, but also get a world of subdivision possibilities
