Clouds is the last module which does not use separate ADC channels for pots and for CV inputs (For example in Braids, Tides, Grids, Clouds… the pots are just generating offsets mixed with the CV, and the sum is read by a single ADC channel).
Now I’m using a separate ADC channel for the CV inputs, and for the pots. Benefits:
- You can use heavy low pass filtering on the pot readouts to get a very stable and smooth knob response.
- You can do all kinds of tweaks in software to the pot’s control law.
- You can assign “shift” functions to pots independently of the CV input.
- Attenuverting is done in software, and you can tweak the attenuverter’s response to have a very flat plateau at the center.
- Calibration is easier!
