Thanks @Jan for your clarifications – especially regarding the input range. I will edit the original post to that effect.
I don’t use any CV gear before or after the MOD, so I’m speaking on very theoretical and overly generic terms. Sorry!
Well @Clemens, it looks like that parameter in the plugin is only responding to positive values. If the range is -6 to 24, that means you have 30 steps, correct? (if my dumb math is right). Therefore:
- When set to positive (0 to 10), you get the full range;
- When set to bipolar (-5 to 5), you get the middle value to max (as if it’s going from 15 to 30, just half of the range);
- When set to negative, you never actually get any change at it stays at the initial value.
(MOD folks, please correct me if I’m wrong here.)
Regarding #2, I would need to know if you get the full motion of the encoder actuating on that parameter or if it only starts responding form halfway up.
Also, there are some settings inside plugins that will make them reset to a certain value or hold the value of the last input received (forgot what the name is right now, sorry. Retrigger perhaps? Hold?)
Again, an example of what you are trying to achieve can be of help. Bear in mind that you can use the same CV cable and input it to various CV plugins with different output actions, so you can have for instance an increase from zero to max turn one knob clockwise and another one counter-clockwise. Or else, you can have whatever value input fire a GC gate trigger that will turn on or off some plugin (a 0 or 1 value). (I am halfway through building a pedal that will use precisely that, hope to release it soon).
Your post has the answer you’re looking for. For that specific parameter, use positive range!
