As for micro-tuning on the module, I haven't made a final decision yet, but that item is on the 'nice to have' list -- and asking for it helps!

So, just wanted to chime in here, I actually registered after seeing the video from Knobcon and being blown away, the one thing I was dying to hear was micro tuning. I think with that (hopefully the ability to import scala files), it would 100% remove my desire for a Circlon, and I would honestly pre order one the second I could do so. Very exciting product!!

The Rev2 hardware does have very accurate 16 bit pitch DACs, so microtuning is both a possibility and of interest to me, but (to avoid feature creep) that feature is not on the 'must have' list for shipping -- it would be a firmware update. One option that will be available immediately: Since the Vector can output MIDI, you could plug it into a Mutable Instruments Yarns, which has both micro tuning and lots of CV.

Also: two questions while you're here: What sort of scales do you like to use, and what do you use to build them (i.e. Scala, etc).

Cheers,
Jim

Hi Jim,

I was just wondering if CV calibration would be on the feature list for the Vector

I have a few rogue VCOs that need a bit of silent way calibration to play nice. But, the whole clunky expert sleepers software makes me dread having to use it each time.

If it was something that could be saved into the Vector if you knew that you'd use that VCO input with that CV output then I'd be able to finally lose the Es4 & gate expander & another midi 2 CV module I have and even my ornaments & crime would be out of a job.

I understand if that is too much feature creep, but I think it's lacking from too many midi 2 cv implementations, especially if you're trying to play chords.

There will be at least some basic calibration for Pitch CVs from the start -- you'd be able to set the minimum voltage, and -- in some way I'm not completely sure of yet -- the tuning from octave to octave. I'll need the very same facility to factory calibrate the CV outs. For instance, note C0 and C5 (middle C) -- or perhaps it will be easier in the end to use C3 and C5, not sure yet. That should give you pretty good tuning for almost any oscillator over at least 3-4 octaves, and really 8 or more with most. The Pitch CV range will be -2V to 8V -- so up to 10 octaves.

Cheers,
Jim

Jim,

I use Scala files, and currently I create/save them using the Korg Monologue librarian. I also download them from an online Scala archive and try them out from time to time.

Groovy, thanks!
