Hello all, and please excuse anything that’s painfully obvious here–I have spent some time trawling the forum.
Firstly, I am really interested in the Mod Duo X. It appears to be the ultimate Swiss army knife, and potentially the answer to a lot of prayers.
From my scanning the forum there’s a lot of talk about kernels and processors and stuff that quite frankly, I don’t understand! I’m hoping that my lack of knowledge around this stuff won’t be a barrier.
Please bear with me on the following - it’s quite a precise use!
Amongst many of the applications I would like to use the box for, I am wondering if I could set it up as a mixer.
My thinking would be the two main knobs to act as faders for channels 1&2, with bass, mid and hi on three of the smaller knobs, and a bi directional filter on the fourth.
Page two would be set up with various send fx (and the four knobs would act as a send fro each effect)
And page three to be decided.
Is this possible? Is it straight forward? And if it is possible, would I also be able to assign some kind of pre fade listen, just like on a ‘dj style’ mixer, and utilise the headphone out?
I’ve seen it mentioned a few times that the usb could send 8 channels of audio out.
Could someone explain how that would work? Would I be effectively looking at a stems type of thing here and each channel could be sent straight to my daw for further processing?
I was excited to see sequencers, drum machines and 303s amongst other things. I know that using a midi keyboard is how I could get sounds from the synths, however with regards to the sequencing of drums - are the sequencers ‘set and forger’ in the browser, or can I manipulate/program on the actual hardware?
Or is this a ‘well yes, if someone creates a plug in that does that’?
I quite like the idea of turning it into a standalone groovebox!
Could the box be used as a basic mastering device? There’s a lot of plugins, so I suspect there’s potential.
Sort of related to the last question - could I stick the mod duo x on the master buss of our live rig, and use as a compressor/limiter/saturation effect (analog heat style)? I’m sure I could, but I’d be interested to hear what others say.
I’ve seen that there’s Tal noise maker, which is great. Are there anymore Tal synths/effects coming or in store?
And as a bonus–any other ‘brand’ plugins coming?
(I know that’s probably not going to get a straight answer!)
Thanks all for taking the time to read and reply.
