The Elektron documentation thread


#21

HTML manuals is an idea that has been brought up here at the office too. Not sure what will happen yet, but yes, its definetly a good idea to make it easier to navigate the documentation.

Im sorry to say, but a french version of the OT MKII manual seems very unlikely at the moment.
In a perfect future world I would like to have all our manuals translated to a number of languages. I’ll do what I can to push for this to happen but I cant really promise anything. But I hear you.

Hey Eangman,
Seems the Model:Samples manual description of the lfo mul parameter is missing the info that “x” is tempo synced and I assume there’s a dot for fixed, not sure about the later because I don’t have one and it’s not in the manual. :wink: :smile:


#24

Yes it is indeed missing. Will fix. Good catch :slight_smile:


#25

Could it make sense to add this to the A4 manual? Maybe in Appendix A or so. I don’t think it’s currently mentioned.

I recently spent some time trying to figure this out myself :slight_smile:.


#26

Hmm I will have to have a look at this one. Not totally sure what to do with this. I need to investigate the issue a bit more before I take any action. Thanks for bringing it up :slight_smile:

Octatrack manual : Not sure if default crossfader / scenes midi out channel is explained somewhere.
Incoming MIDI message automatically routed to same MIDI output

What I find very irritating is that (at least in the OT manual) abbreviations are not “spelled out” and some of them are so cryptic that I don’t find where they are coming from.

Example: ANLG on the AMP SETUP page. I mean I understand what it does (that’s totally clear from the text), but there is nowhere in the text explained what ANLG stands for. ANALOG? Doesn’t really make sense for “restart from current level”. What else?

Maybe it’s just me, but remembering the meaning of random looking 4-chars-abbrevs is quite hard.

Oh come on… We gotta leave it at least somewhat cryptic…:grin:


#30

The cruel thing is: it looks like it’s something simple and I’m just too stupid to solve the riddle. That’s nagging in the back of my mind the whole day long … I want my zen-like peace back :grin:


#31

I think this is by far my favorite, from Monomachine manual. :smile:

Machinedrum’s GND, with its empty machine called “—”. :content:


#33

Honestly not even I understand what ANLG is :smiley: Well, I guess it stands for Analog, but not sure why it is called that… standard analog behavior perhaps… I have to ask someone who was around when they made this choice.
The reason why you see quite a lot these abbreviations in the text is that it is the UI name/setting of that parameter and if it is not written as it is in the UI, it will be very difficult to understand exactly what the text is talking about.
Nowadays I do my best to describe the abbreviation though. An example from the Digitone manual…
AENR Amp envelope reset sets the amp envelope behavior”
