System 100 S&H, LFO2 and patching on S8 :)

Postby pstnotpd » 07:59, 18 June 2017

I recently pulled the trigger and bought an S8 for my aira setup.

I'd been eyeing the system 100 plugout for a while but held back because S&H and LFO2 were not reachable when plugged out to S1.

As it doesn't seem to be mentioned much (I found 1 forum reply): It turns out that S&H, LFO2 and patch routing can be done on S8 through the patch edit menu.

.... instant "buy now" for me!

Thanks for the tip! I discovered that not only can you do patch routing through the submenu, but you can also control all the parameters that are not mapped to knobs (like S&H sample rate, LFO2 rate, etc...). Definitely stoked to figure that one out.

Bummer they didnt use the Lfo variation knob to switch between lfo 1, 2 and S&H

It brings us 1 step closer to "virtual modular" without a computer involved.

If it would be possible to patch across plugouts you'd have a monster s100 modular. (I remember this mentioned somewhere)

Then if the roland boffins find a way to virtually modularize JP8, juno and S8 you'd have a modern day nord modular or arturia origin.

Fingers crossed!

Yeah - You'd think they would release a system-8 specific version that makes use of all those blank knobs... Or at least make it so you could map the unused knobs to whatever parameters you wished to control...

You can also use the LFO as a basic 3rd Oscillator - Patch KYBD CV OUT to EXT CV IN (LFO-1) and use the Gain & Offset to scale your octaves.

I wish there was some kind of CV mixer to mix several CV outs for modulation purposes.
