I’m having a hard time figuring out what I’m doing wrong.
App LED is white. cv 1 and gate 1 appear to be playing an arpeggio (quite nice, but I can’t seem to change it). Pressing keys on the Keylab that is connected and powered by USB does not appear to have any effect on ansible.
Can’t figure out how to tell which voice mode I’m in.
I just noticed that the published docs have an error, when in standard midi voice mode the mode light is orange (not white as documented, white mode is the arpeggiator). Holding down the mode button changes between the standard and arp modes.
Once a midi controller is plugged in and the mode light is orange - pressing Key 2 repeatedly will cycle through the four allocation modes. Admittedly it is hard to tell which mode you are in without the kind of feedback one normally gets from the arc/grid leds. If I’m lost I usually repeatedly press a note on the controller - if the TR output cycles from top to bottom then you are in the POLY voice mode. Press Key 2 once to get to MONO voice mode.
I have some improvements in the pipeline to the midi modes which should help in this area. In particular I’m trying to work out ways to make the configuration more sticky. On hurdle is naturally the UI…
Do you know if you are running the latest firmware? There was a recent change (unrelated to the midi mode) which increased the amount of current USB devices were allowed to draw. If you have a power adaptor for the controller that might help too.
It is possible that the device you are plugging in is trying to draw more power that the firmware is willing to allow. There is a power negotiation that goes on when USB devices first connect.
I just looked and I couldn’t find any power requirements for the keylab on arturia’s website.
IIRC the max current draw is now set to 500mA in recent firmware, before November it was set to 300mA.
I’ve been using the midi functions of Ansible and was confused about the light to indictate the mode, but I see here that it’s an error.
Something that I cannot seem to figure out is how to activate key hold mode is for the arpeggios. It seems you can issue a command via Teletype (ARP.HLD 1 or ARP.HLD 0) and this is something saved in the preset, but how do you activate it via button press on the front? It works when I use the Teletype command. I had it running via a keypress, but could not recreate it.
Ansible got my attention but not really understanding what it actually does. The video on monome page is informative. But for non TT users, what would this give in conjunction with Just Friends?
Is there any any any way that a bit of the „opening up/controlling“ of JF thats possible by i2c Just Type could be used by only ansible and JF?
Just asking this for informatve reasons. Wont jump into complicated new devices until i learned OC and JF
Care to describe what it would do for soemone that has none of the other monome gear like grids etc?
I see some appregio uses i think but i hardly understand what it actually is or can be by being open source
