You know, I’m not 100% sure how I am going to implement the MDX yet, but I have an idea of the utility I’ll be seeking from it.
The strega does not have a gate in. It’s a drone machine, but if I plug a CV envelope into the activation circuit, I can pull out more traditional sounds like plucks.
Since I have 2 stregas, and 2 lanes of CV out on the MDX, the first set of experiments will be testing that capability out. I’ll map the ADSR to a set of knobs so I can manipulate it while running my simple 8 step sequences.
Today I need to address my power situation. I’ve restricted myself to one power strip per set up. The strip has 6 plugs, and the MDX is plug number 7 if I plan to keep the dwarf in the mix. I have to check if my Phoenix power supply can supply the juice necessary for MOD products.
I’ve been generally unhappy with the volume of my tracks, so I am taking some time to address my mixer and trying to identify why I have such a massive drop in audio volume from my interface to iPad. I’m really trying to avoid recording stems from my mixer and then compiling them into a track. It takes away from the single take live jams I prefer to do.
Also, did you get a chance to tie my plugin licenses for the MDX and Dwarf?
