Norns: help

Nice! thanks for the maiden tip :slight_smile:

Experienced complete loss of audio today running Earthsea. Seemed to occur as I was moving the Grid to my lap… Might’ve jostled the USB connection. Mixer screen confirmed no audio being sent out. A sleep cycle fixed it.

this is likely related to an audio bug that is fixed in the update. hold tight.

Had a little trouble getting norns to see my grid again – it did eventually work, but flipping the inside switch wasn’t doing it. Not sure what got it going this time, which makes me think it was probably a coincidence the first time. :thinking:.

I will play a bunch this week and try and confirm for myself if there is a problem or not.
If so, I will mail support directly and take it from there. :+1:

what is the easiest way to load samples into /audio/common
iwould like to add some wavs there
i am having a rough day so forgive me if i missed the general users manual

Sync Norns to a FAT-formatted USB drive to back everything up, then load that drive to your computer and add your audio files to dust/audio/common or even a new folder in there. When every is loaded up, plug the drive back into Norns and then sync from USB.

also remember it’s just a linux computer, you can shell in, scp, etc.

manual is here: https://monome.org/docs/norns

More wifi problems with the new update180603.

Here is a successful wifi connection with my tethered phone:

despite what the menu says, did you try pointing your web browser to 192.168.0.48?

Hi Tehn,

thanks for the quick one. It works - I can reach Maiden - on the tethered phone at its associated ip address (172.20.10.3) when my laptop and my norns are on that same network.

I cannot reach Maiden on my home wifi network (wifi>failed displayed on norns). But I can tty in and see that it is connected to my network (ip 192.168.0.48 in this case).

It’s not a big problem as I think I will just use my tethered phone for now (was fixed in this update - thanks). I just wanted to identify to see if it might help to troubleshoot.

Ok! Not sure if this is the appropriate topics to create or should I post in the help thread?

Anyways just received the Norns and I cannot find a way to load existing loops in MLR.

Anyone can shed some light? Thanks

Open mlr. On the grid, press the 3rd button on the top row. This will open the clip page. On norns press button 2 to load a clip into the selected slot.

you need to sync a usb drive to norns.

plug in a usb drive
go to parameters,
go to system
go to sync
hit “sync to disk”
this will create the “dust” folder on your usb drive
inside “dust” there will be an audio folder, you can use this to transfer samples in to mlr

re:MLR, potential silly question… I feel like i’m overlooking something obvious.

I’ve got a TS cable input in the IN1 input and i’m only able to get tracks 1 and 3 to record a loop. Tracks 2 and 4 are always blank. Recording monitoring shows appropriate levels. Is there something in the system audio settings that I need to tweak regarding mono input? Something else?

So I was able to get tracks 2 and 4 to record with a duplicate mono cable to the IN2 input. I was just a bit confused as Norns seems to take the mono inputs and duplicate them appropriately when monitoring/recording. Ah well, at least it’s working and happy to be exploring.
