the arp is a lot more useful than i thought initially. it’s a good source of randomness and also offers a way to trig notes off the grid.
like many things on the mnm, it’s a matter of taming it, of applying parameters that will keep it from running away on you and being merely obnoxious rather than musical. that’s probably too general a thing to tell you right now, but it’s good to keep in mind, especially on an instrument as broadly configurable as the mnm.
i realize you just got your mnm, but do you have any particular goals for the arp? what would you like it to do?[/quote]
Indeed, as with all the Elektron boxes, I guess. I thought it would be a bit closed to the arp designer on the A4, but I guess I am wrong Is there a way to make it slide? And can you P-Lock stuff on it (like the time division etc?) For instance
At the moment I am simply trying to learn as much as possible about the whole unit. I have so far at least experienced that it’s a lot more “fine tune” than the A4, the difference in parameters from one step to another seems quite huge (I guess I can increase the resolution, and of also it’s a bit difficult to compare it to an anlog unit)
I’ve also learned that a lot of goodness comes from the DIGIpro machine!
I thought it would be more of a live tool, but it seems maybe more of a program tool, as of yet, since it doesn’t have any kind of scenes or macros. However, it seems, from the manual, to accept a lot of midi and sysex info, so could probably do alot with that.
Routing-wise it seems quite cool too. Wondering if I could connect the CD or EF outs to inputs to overdrive in the converters or create some feedback… Any cool routing tips are also welcome.
To be honest I don’t know what I want to do yet, I just want to learn it all (I bought it simply because I needed more expences to cut my tax a little :P)
Thanks for all help and interest, you guys are awesome!
