Help Understanding Definitions - Analog Rytm MKii, PreenFM2

Do I have to make 12 different txt files for each instrument, and then another for the FX to be able to tweak the parameters of each instrument individually? That would be 13 of the 16 definition files available. Then I couldn’t use all four channels on my Preen (If it needs four definition files too.)

Thanks for the help!

Every midi channel needs a separate file (definition). You can specify note numbers and control change numbers in the same file. If that makes sense?

Yeah. I think it’s one downfall of the Rytm architecture. Having the cc’s the same for each instrument. But I guess with so much functionality in each instrument and only 127 cc’s you have to work around it some way.

It’s only day two with the Pyramid for me, but I learn something new each day and am more and more impressed and looking forward to the creativity it’s bringing out.

Thanks!

I’m not familiar with either device, but it might be worth waiting for v3.0 which will make definitions with multitimbral devices less painful, see

Hello hello
you can have a look here:

1 channel is enought I believe for the Rytm.

Thank you for that, but I am looking to be able to use the pitch and tone shaping features of each instrument, rather than the fx. I’m going to try and make a definition file today. If it works, I’ll share it

What am I doing wrong/completely missing? I don’t see the name when I hit 2nd+Track. Just a gray box. It’s a .txt file. I’m on track 1, output A01. I followed the manual (apparently not well enough).

I made this definition and put it in the root:

Found it in another definition thread.

" select all text and press shift+command+T to convert the text into plain text"

Apparently just changing the file format to .txt doesn’t work on a Mac in textedit.

I feel like that little trick isn’t so obvious and should be in the manual.
