Clouds Position Knob Wont Work


#1

Hi,
I have had my clouds for a while now and all the sudden the Position knob won’t do anything.
Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong?

What firmware are you running on your clouds?


#3

whatever firmware came with it.


#4

Are you in main granular mode or (maybe accidentally) in some of the 3 (7) others?
Is this a factory built clouds or a “diy” unit?


#5

Factory unit


#6

I may have accidentally changed some mode, but I don’t know how to change them or even where they are. haha. I know I know… call me a noob to the clouds. haha


#7

how to I get back to standard granular mode like it comes from the factory?

May be a good way to find out what fw is on :slight_smile:

WIth the stock firmware you change through the modes

by pressing the B button for 5 seconds until one of the LEDs glows in orange, and then repeatedly pressing the button to select one of 4 functions:

(First LED lit) Granular processor (normal operation).
(Second LED lit) Pitch shifter/time-stretcher.
(Third LED lit) Looping delay.
(Fourth LED lit) Spectral processor.

On alternative firmware ‘Parasites’ it’d be

changed long-press time to access the alternative modes to 2.5 seconds.

and/or

changed mode-switching interface: press both black buttons at the same time to change mode; then the two buttons to go back/forth between modes

depending on your version.

There is also a third quite common alternate fw to it (kammerl beat repeat), but i think there’s almost no chance you have that one on your unit.

yes,
I have the standard FW… and man… seeing this now what you wrote makes a lot of sense… I guarantee that I accidentally changed to a different mode. I think it’s in Spectral now. haha.
oh man, you are a Legend for helping me.
I will be back at the studio tomorrow and give this a go and I’ll let you know how it goes.

Hi Nino,
Thank you so much.
You were correct.
it was just in the wrong mode.
Thank you again.
