Workaround for Track tuning

I was quite upset that I couldn’t fine tune the oscillators on the Digitakt but there’s a simple workaround for it :smiley:.

In the LFO section, set the DEST to Pitch All, Set the wave to EXP, turn the speed down all the way to .01, BPM to 1, and MODE to RETRIG. Then you can adjust the fine tuning of the track with the Depth parameter.

Basically your creating a pitch envelope every retrigger but you set the LFO so slow that it doesnt sweep down and keeps the note constant.

Hope it helps :vulcan_salute:

umm isnt this now possible with the ratio offsets though?

maybe, I haven’t updated the OS yet

With the latest OS no workarounds are necessary anymore. It’s now officially supported.

That’s a great trick, definitely something I’m gonna use. I kept looking for a fine tune knob, but didn’t find anything. I like to detune a whole sound on certain steps to make chords slightly off or to make high notes “shimmer”, and this workaround’s gonna let me do that :smiley:

Ratio fine tuning is on page 2 of syn1 section :slight_smile:

You’re right @Malarkyk, but if I’m not mistaken, that page is more about shaping the sound than fine tuning the whole note a few semitones up and down. There is no pitch all knob anywhere, I’ve only found it as an LFO destination.
