Firstly, I’ve read through all the forum posts I was able to find on “skipped/delayed gates” and haven’t found any answers. Most of the posts are a little dated and refer to previous firmware versions so hoping someone can help me figure this out.
I’ve upgraded to firmware version 1.71.
I just wanted to set up a quick gate pattern to start testing things out and noticed that Hermod appears to randomly skip or delay gates.
Here is how I’ve set things up:
- Pam’s New Workout Output 1 > Mult > Mult 1 > Hermod CV D IN
- Mult 2 > Scope
- Hermod Track 1 Gate Out > Scope
- Clock Source Set to CV D
- Clock IN DIV and Clock OUT DIV = 1/4
- Output 1 is a X4 Gate with no other alterations
Based on the above, what I expect to see are both sets of gates lining up as close to perfectly as possible on the scope.
However, while Pam’s gates are good, Hermod randomly experiences either a skipped gate or what I can only describe as a delayed or “scrunched” gate which results in a glitchy sound when gating a VCO.
It’s worth noting that this behaviour is non-existent when clocking Hermod internally or via the host/midi port.
I can certainly rethink my clock setup using a midi/USB workaround, but would much prefer to keep my clock analog/CV based for a variety of reasons.
I’ll admit that Hermod is a brand new addition to my rack, so I’m hoping this can be resolved with a setting or configuration change.
Any help/insight is greatly appreciated.
I am able to get consistent gates using this workaround:
- KeyStep Sync Out > Pam’s CLK and Run (via HOSA YMM-261 cable)
- KeyStep USB Out > Hermod USB Host In (with Hermod clock source set to Host Port)
I was hoping that clocking Pam’s via KeyStep but maintaining the CV clock in to Hermod would work… but I see the same issue with skipped/delayed gates.
Anyone else experience this issue?
