Roli Lightpad or Seaboard?


#1

Anyone have success using a Roli Lightpad or Seaboard into USB with the Hermod?


#2

I did a basic test with the Seaboard Block, pitch/gate, velocity, and aftertouch all seemed to be working as they should


#3

Very good to know! Thanks!


#4

And if you set Slide CC to 1 on the Block you can use that to control a modulation track on Hermod


#5

Can you give me some more details on how you set that up in the Blocks Dashboard and on the Hermod? I’m trying to no avail, I either get one or the other. Pitch or Mod.


#6

describe exactly what you’re hoping to achieve and I’ll do my best to give you instructions


#7

Trying to use track one for CV/Gate for the usual pitch and envelope, and track 2 as a modulation source that reacts to the Glide parameter on the Seaboard block. I want to send that to the cutoff of a filter.

In ROLI Dashboard, select Single Channel mode, Set Slide CC to 1

On Hermod, go to midi settings and put track 1 and 2 on midi channel 1.
Set track 1 to a single voice layout - Mono
Set track 2 to a single voice layout - Modulation

That should do it

To use aftertouch for modulation as well:
Set up the Block in the same way as above.

On Hermod, go to midi settings and put track 1, 2, and 3 on midi channel 1.
Set track 1 to a 2 voice layout - Mono + Vel
Press Effects, click the encoder to enter the midi effect, change “After > Vel” to ON
Set track 3 to a single voice layout - Modulation

This gives you CV/gate on track 1, Aftertouch CV out on track 2, and Slide CV out on track 3

Thanks man! Got it working great now. I overlooked both the MIDI channels set to 1 for the track!

Thanks for this! It works for me but:
The seaboard plays all tracks on the hermod,
not just the active one.
In comparison the Keystep Pro would just play the active track as soon as i switch.
Am i overlooking something?
Thanks!
