Im not really sure if this is best solved by changing my setup on the hermod or pyramid…
but I think the underlying ‘issue’ is more about what how you handle having a continuous live input, that you want to record on the pyramid - and how to ‘ignore’ the live input after a recording…
anyway here is what Im doing…
on my eurorack I have mutable marbles generating interesting melodies which I would like to record on the pyramid (so that I can then edit, tweak and play with them)
to do this, what I do is:
Mutable Marble t3/x4 -> Hermod CV IN AB
Hermod CV IN AB -> Hermod T1
Hermod T1 :
- midi ch1
- MIDIFX : MIDI OUT ch1, usb device
- T1 CV/Gate to other module (e.g. MI Plaits)
Pyramid connected to Hermod as usb device
Pyramid T1 Ch 1 … which ends up back at Hermod.
so this basically works quite nicely.
except there is a loopback.
if you direct CV AB to a hermod track, it plays out via CV/Gate, and MIDI OUT sends to pyramid … which send it back, and then gets played due to midi input on T1 of Hermod.
I can get around this, by using a different pyramid track , that is routed to a midi channel that is not going anywhere … recording it there , and then copying the notes back to T1 - but thats a bit of a faff.
I guess another way, on the hermod might be to put a chance % after the MIDI OUT FX, to try to absorb the notes so they don’t go out via cv/gate.
other thoughts and ideas?
