Mannequins W/ (with)


#1446

Thanks for this pointer. It gives me an idea for how to manage these two seemingly competing use-cases. Won’t be part of 1.1, but will be added soon!

Soon-to-be-available units are actually the second half of the initial run that we pulled after seeing all the firmware issues. A soon-to-follow second-run has functionally identical hardware and is 100% compatible.

No issue whatsoever. Just lookout that the board doesn’t get in the way of neighbouring modules!

That 2slashes case is ridiculous. I’m dreaming of a time when we have enough stock that I can do this!

I finally bought and received a 0.05 inch hex tool and now my W/ with Beta12 is PERFECT!


#1448

OK, I’ll bite - what did you use the 0.05 inch hex tool for?


#1449

I had one of the units where the guts behind the front panel were loose and moving around when I’d plug cables in or use the joystick, that’s now fixed.

Edit: OCD issues probably.


#1450

I did the same - it was getting loose but tightening it up worked fine


#1451

Just wanting to mention, i am havin an awesome time with w/ beta12
No glitches so far. Just used as a looper sos for now, but love how it reacts and the basic functions are remembered quickly. Looking forward to dive in more


#1452

My first-run w/ now has a sibling! (thanks @Dan_Derks) I’ve only had a bit of time to play with both, but it was great fun sending a single voice (Plaits, getting an Earthsea sequence) to a sequential switch and then alternating which w/ was receiving it. Modulating THAT on both led to some great stereo vibes. A few crunchy cassette sounds laid on top of it all for good measure.


#1453

this is a beautiful thing, thanks for sharing it


#1454

Thanks! Really looking forward to exploring this pair further and…doing some actual recording :slight_smile:


#1455

A little something from me too.
Raw sketch. I do like the uneveness.
The reveresed tape is w/


#1456

@Galapagoose Would it possible to set the voltage to THAT from /w type (teletype)? I like being able to manually adjust with an attenuator, but fine control over THAT would be nice. Teletype is only 0-10v and I have to patch up extra cables to offset.

Right now I am quantizing my param knob on TT to 1V steps and sending that out of a CV to the offset.

One particular problem is if I don’t adjust my knob just right into THAT around 0V, and i turn off play, it will still really slowly play forward or reverse and i can see a low rumble on my meters. I was thinking that a bigger deadzone around 0v wouldn’t really solve the problem since it’s nice to have a smooth transition between negative to positive.

I know you are squashing bugs so take your time.

Finally found cv controlled << >> aaaahrw :heart_eyes:

Applaus @Galapagoose the sampler i dreamed of as a kid but probably wouldnt have understood and valued as today. I am utterly amazed and salute to the clever layouts. It gets obvious that performance was most important and i feel like swimming through magnetic celluloid wich feels lovely


#1458

If you don’t mind my asking…what do mean?

Did you find a hidden feature or are you talking about one of the normal modes?


#1459

Uhm i suppose pretty normal stuff i am just really taking my time slowly with w/
I didnt really get it in the manual, i mean the playback direction and speed by cv into THAT. I was prior trying it on simple playback and didnt stumble over hitting play again to actually get things moving. Also didnt get it in the manual.


#1460

I am waiting not so patiently for the second batch of w/'s to be released… so much of the design looks like it functions the way I always wish my loop pedals would; syncable, scanable, speed ramp’d…


#1461

syncable… hmm, you know what, probably, but I’m not sure how to do it!


#1462

you can get it to jump back to the last cue point via triggers, no?


#1463

It sounds like CUE mode can handle this, referring to the manual.

edit:
a short trig in this, for a one shot sample, or use a gate for a “looping while high” behavior. This coupled with a 0v signal in that should be some sort of sync… I think… I haven’t actually tried it yet, but I will next chance I get.


#1464

WS.CUE 0 for teletype allows for synced clocking with simultaneous recording in NAV and LIVE, which is not possible using trigs/gates in CUE mode.


#1465

I’m going to try the WS.CUE next time i get to my synth but I’m wondering, say you set play speed to x2, when you execute WS.CUE does it reset play speed to normal. I ask because WS.PLAY 1 or WS.PLAY -1 resets speed to normal if you are at x2 or 1/2. I had actually assumed all the WS reset play speed for simplicity but now I’ve written it down I’m not so sure. Anyone know?
