About overlapping notes not triggering a gate:
It’s the standard in eurorack CV/GATE sequencing: it’s intentional. When the pitch change (because there is a new note, overlapping or following closely the precedent note), the gate is not trigged DOWN then UP. Only the pitch change. Depending on your eurorack module type, your synth modules can either:
- play the new pitch, but not trigger the ADSR
- play the new pitch and trigger the ADSR (so create a GATE because the module know that the pitch has changed) (common with synths that converts CV/GATE to MIDI)
- play the new pitch with a glide/legato (by smoothing the CV voltage) but not trigger the ADSR
The legato/glide option is something generally “computed” by the synth (even if Hermod has glide effect for CV/GATE synthesizers that do not include the glide feature).
It’s true that we can add a setting to separate each notes, in order to avoid glide/legato, and always trigger the gate when a new note is sent. But it’s not as easy as that: to create a trig, you have to create a break time in the GATE signal (for example, 5ms of GATE = DOWN = OFF). To make it musical, this break time should happend at the end of the precedent note, not at the beginning of the next note.
Of course, it’s easy with MIDI sequencers, as each notes are separated (because of the polyphony). But with CV/GATE sequencers, notes are monophonic, this is why the standard is to note retrig the GATE when a new pitch is received.
We will work on that, and see if it’s possible to implement an option to retrig or not the GATE.
