hey all, not sure where the best thread is, feel free to merge me.
I have a problem with accum/relative CC mapping. if I turn an encoder on my controller, then change the param on norns itself, then go back to using the external controller, the value jumps to where it was when I last turned the controller knob. This kills the purpose of relative control, so I hope I’m just missing something.
also, sidenote, i just put in a PR to allow any CC above 64 to increase, and anything below 64 to decrease, instead of just 65 and 63, which not all controllers support.
During the last drop early August I ordered a Norns and a Grid. According to UPS both should arrive tomorrow. I have to admit I am very happy
Now I am wondering of course, where to start.
I do have some experiences with synths, eurorack and Ableton. Some gear I could imagine to connect Norns and Grid to include a Vermona Perforumer, Vermona DRM, Midi in to Eurorack, maybe even Digitakt or Syntakt. I also have a Polyend Seq, that might become obsolet now with the Grid. I also have a beautiful midi controller that I could imagine to hook up to Norns (the Midique KNTLR9 MK2 with 9 faders and 27 rotary knobs) if that makes any sense.
What would you do as a new beginner in this journey? What do I need to learn first - and how?
All help and pointers to tutorials and guides are very welcome.
I think I would first ask what motivated you to buy them. Besides the basics which can be learned from the documentation, are you interested in any specific scripts or uses for it? Do you want to build something yourself (some people don’t have any interest in that and that is fine)? I would also browse this site to see what’s possible if you haven’t already:
Thank you. I am looking mainly to have norms generate sequences with grid letting me modify parameters while performing. And from what I can tell, there a lot of options in that category. So I guess sending Midi to the Perfourmer for example would be my main path.
One of my favourites for this is Plonky, which can control up to 8 external devices via on their own sequences (or arpeggiations) as well as play internal sounds from Polyperc and/or Mx.Samples under quite intuitive grid control.
I keep running into various things I can’t see around lines and this discourse post keeps getting linked. I’m past the discourse requirements shown for “member” but am still at “basic”. I’m trying to just engage organically but something seems off with this and it’s a little frustrating to have various conversations dead end for some reason I don’t understand.
…however, there are interesting script combo’s out there. the orgn synth script and wrms looper/delay script combined as the super powerful orgnwrms, to give an example. i’d highly recommend all three, especially to grid-owners.
