I saw this update making it possible to sync Make Noise tempi thru Ableton by using a sample. Has anyone tried this using the Octatrack to send out that sample and tempo sync the modular using his OT?
Should work. It’s possible to sync PO-32 with a sample for example.
thank you. Looking forward to try it out.
Sick I’ll have to try this when I’m home
Bananée (Happy new year) @qlamerand. You mean OT’s metronome as sync signal? I’m curious about it.
I’m not sure that would work… would save me a track though…
You too @sezare56 ! Yes using an atonal (pulse) metronome routed to a cue output. It’s actually you who gave me the idea with one of your challenges, sampling the metronome
You need to tweak the metronome signature as well so it’s always the same volume
For Tempi you would maybe need a modular level so Bastl Klik could useful here to convert audio pulse to real 5V clock signal.
 ah didn’t see the video
Well I made more tests yesterday and I was wrong. The metronome wasn’t stable enough especially when using the crossfader. I guess the priority of the metronome is lower than the audio tracks.
So back to a pulse sample, and it worked perfectly :
Case for octatrack MK2?
doesn´t matter the version, it will always work.
triggers used in modular, while not STRICTLY “audio” but CV signals, are not so slow that you´d need a DC-coupled output.
so you can simply just sample it (or grab one of the many suggested WAV samples provided by different module manufacturers * ), play it from ANY (!!) sampler and it should work in 99% of the cases.
In the 1% where it doesn´t, you might have to normalize the sample to increase its volume or maybe screw with the length of the trigger a little bit.
but that last percent is usually the “fault” of different trigger expectations from different module makers.
- there is at least one safe source for such triggers:
its okay , i am intelligible at the best of times
I wasn’t sure I understood correctly as well
