I’m not sure if this has been requested already before . . . I didn’t find anything through a quick search of this forum.
Would it be possible to get an option for envelope outputs and individual per-stage outs to be in the range 0 to +5V instead of 0 to +8? Considering that the vast majority of modulation destinations are in the 0 to +5 or -5 to +5 ranges, it’s a bit of extra patching that needs to be done to attenuate from 8 down to 5 especially if I’m using multiple outputs from stages. Or also I like to mix in external modulation sources . . . for example: having an ADSR and having an external 0 to 5V source modulate the Sustain Level input. In this case, I’d have to boost the external 5V to 8V, and then taking the final Stages output that peaks at 8V and then attenuate it back down to 5V so it won’t clip my other modules destinations that are in the 5V range.
It wouldn’t be so bad for just some modulations here and there, but I currently have 2 Stages, about to get a 3rd, and I plan to eventually link up the maximum of 6 together. For more complex patches with multiple Stages modules, the boosting/attenuation can get quite cumbersome and take up a good amount of HP for attenuation modules alone. Also I like to use the individual per/stage outputs of multi stage envelopes, and those also need attenuating down to 5V, so that’s even more patching.
A lot of wires and HP could be eliminated by just having a 5V vs 8V option on startup (with some button combination?). I really enjoy the stock firmware, so it would be awesome if it could get an official release. I’d try to figure out how to code it myself, but I just haven’t gotten around to learning how to reprogram the firmware.
