Hey Squarp and Hermod-Users,
I ordered and received my very own Hermod a day ago with hopes it would function as an arranger for my mostly generative modular music. My aim was to use it as a hub to capture any desirable random / generative moments for later playback, however I’m hitting a few snags.
Running a Turing-Machine, triggered by a Varigate (clocked to Hermod), into a uScale, I locked in a decent melodic phrase which I wanted to record to a ‘note’ track on the Hermod. I set the CV-In-Settings to received CV/Gate on AB on the Active Track and plugged in the output of the uScale into the Hermod’s A input. I hit record, and nothing was captured. After some fiddling around, I was upset to learn that this was because a gate signal was not present in the B-input (super lame that a gate is required to record cv-note information), but that wasn’t the only issue. What the Hermod recorded was a dissonant, shadow of the melody I had originally heard playing from uScale. I eventually tried recording the melody with the quantize off, which seemed to help a bit, but there were still quite a few goofy, off-sounding notes.
Does anyone have any advice for me for this specific application of the Hermod? And can anyone help me troubleshoot this problem I’m having?
