Test Button

So we hold the S1 button and I locks in a note for testing…or starting a sequence…that’s very useful.
Is there a way…to ADD a momentary contact button to do same…triggering the envelope as well.
It would just be very convenient , while sitting back in the big armchair with just the shruthi (no keyboard)…(and maybe a wobbly pop)…to design sounds.
Just thinking out loud I guess…
I tend to be simplistic.?.minamalistic…or just plain lazy maybe

I GUESS you could wire a regular on/off switch into the momentary switch, which should accomplish what you are looking for, however I haven’t done it, it might work, it might not :confused:

I don’t think that would work…it requires a 5 sec hold on the button.
A change in code would be required, but in my limited experience…all the controls are “active” for use.
A new one would need to be added that is scanned as well…with the bounce removed.
I think I could accomplish that…if I knew where to insert the code…and hardware if it was possible.
But my programming skills are rusty to say the least…and absolutely no knowledge of hardware.

With regular on/off switch I meant a Latching tactile switch, or a “throw”/rocker type switch, since this should in theory act exactly like the normal tactile switch (which is already debounced) except that it would stay open/closed for the five second required, thereby negating the need for software changes :slight_smile:

I understand now what you mean.
However, I think it may negate the attack part of the envelope…if you know what I mean.
Which in my world of bass is critical…momentary on is all bass really offers, except fast repeated notes.
I should have offered that as background , I play bass with bass to midi…not much for sustain so to speak :slight_smile:
I do appreciate the idea though…
Thank You!

you could simply hook up an additionnal button to one of the “in” mod pads of the control board, and maybe do a small software change (i don’t know if you can call or stop the test routine simply by tweaking the parameters).

Another, even simpler option, would be to hook up a simple midi keyboard and use the seq+lt mode… This way you only need to press a key to start the sequence…

Simple midi keyboard like the tiny akai/korg 25key ones maybe ? :slight_smile:

Im tempted to do a One Button Keyboard for this… project name OneTrickPony™

The hardest thing is deciding wether it has a white or a black key :wink:

Now that’s funny!
At least I can be sure of the next note!

I could add a Pot so you can change Notes :wink:

Ok, but it absolutely MUST have velocity and after touch!

Weighted key, must feel like a piano.

White or black? how about a nice stained oak or cherry wood.


OK Guys, no Aftertouch (to prevent the Discussion if it should have Aftertouch or Channel Pressure…), No velocity, just a Button to trigger (you may choose Latched Mode on PowerUp), an LED indicating the Note is played and a Pot for the Key… Nice little in-between project for tonite.
