I have a question about the Hermod that I haven’t been able to answer by reading the manual.
If I connect a midi keyboard, how does it handle polyphonic information? For instance, if I play a chord, can it split the notes across separate tracks, and therefore output the notes on seperate midi channels?
If you DON’T add a midi out effect to the track, and make the track a 3 voice track and play a chord into it, then you get Tracks 1, 2 and 3 playing the output.
Once I figured out that I needed to insert an effect to successfully get midi output I stopped exploring this, but in theory yes.
It sounds very interesting to me again, and I will check this out as well, but I assume that then one connects the output of Tracks 1, 2 and 3 to different destinations and then you get note hocketing (?)
Not sure, but it’s a cool idea. Let’s see here…
Hermod can receive, record, process and output polyphonic MIDI data in various ways. This is one of its major strengths, in my opinion.
If you play a chord, you can split - for example - a three-voice chord by selecting a three voice layout in track mode. Then you get three CV/Gate outputs, which you can wire to three VCOs and Envelop generators in a modular system. If you want to output the three notes via separate MIDI channels, then insert the MIDI out effects for each track and choose set the desired MIDI channels.
All this can be found in the manual. Personally, I think that users struggle to understand the structure of Hermod and with its terminology (effects, voices, tracks etc.)
It works! Thank you! But I get the the gate bug Will you please fix that gate bug! sometimes, so after not touching the keyboard one of the synths plays his notes all of the time. Since I’m not the only person I hope they will fix it, my gates and 1V/Oct. out are each only connected to one synth so I guess it really has to be a bug, even though I’m no pro with Hermod.
