Here’s some feedback from my first TLC time with my anushri, mainly trying to make sure I understand what’s under the hood. I really love this thing. After messing around in all possible directions, I decided it was time to figure out properly the sound engine and here’s my first batch of questions
My first step was to try to reset everything so the barest sound (vco) came out. I ended up with the setup as shown in the image and feed it with a constant c3.
To be honest, I got enormously puzzled by what I thought was some kind of volume gating and didn’t understand why. The thing was that I had ‘accidentally’ triggered the arp in my previous ‘fooling around’ session and it was playing tricks on me.
So now I’m looking at the vco wave and mix parameter. If I put it all the way to the right I’m getting the expected squarish wave and turning it to the left seems to add a saw to the square. However it never seems to become a full saw. I’ve added a picture of the wave I’m getting when the knob is turned full left. Is this normal ?
Then I wanted to be sure that the dco was never heard unless the sub-oscillator was set to the appropriate setting. Is this also correct ?
Turning on the fuzz is quite nice but it instantly overdrives everything to square wave land making it sometimes a tad gimmicky to my taste. Lowering the cut-off gets some nicer timbre because the input to the fuzz is lowered and it got me wishing for a drive parameter for it. Or even have it post-vca, I think it would make it probably more versatile.
Finally, is there a way to get the glide to be only effective when playing legato ? I thought I had seen something like that but I can’t find it again.
Thanks a bunch and congrats once again Olivier, this is an amazing piece of kit.
