Feature Requests and Feedback / Re: tempo of the chord progression
« Last post by jluc on July 12, 2020, 12:06:50 PM »
In fact, I already find the channels terribly musical. The little extra to go beyond the experimental (necessary anyway to surprise yourself and create creative accidents, this is also the strength of this project, I believe) would be to be able to save a current state and recall it (by midi for example), as well as the possibility of making a mapping of a succession of channels with their presets, for live use. I think we has already spoken more or less in a previous post.
Today, I mainly use it to create material and until now, I have managed to produce sounds in this way with MAX MSP. Doing it now without turning on the computer and without a screen adds a dimension I think.
this tool is unique and I thank you for your work ! :)

Happy to hear that! 8) It's a work in progress - still has some way to go to be more useful in music making, I guess.

Thank you for supporting the project!

ok thank you for your answer. I thought however that I had reviewed the modifiable parameters. fantastic ! this box is definitely to my liking !

Hi Jean-Luc, adjusting tempo is possible since the first version, check in the settings leaflet.

The soundscapes default sample can be replaced with the last recorded track by pressing SET+RST but not fully finished with all options. Hope it's at least good for some experimenting.

hi mario

If for the future update it will be possible to change the soundscape ( I can't wait! ;) ), maybe it would be interesting to be able to also change the speed of execution of the chord progression (tempo) ?
regards

A Sticky topic? With the latest release always linked, with change date?

Ah and I thought only a fraction of Gecho owners know about the forum :) I'm not sure where / how to post it to the forum so it is visible on the top of everything else.

Hi Mario,

Did I see that you released new Gecho software in May? If so, in the future, do you think it would make sense to also post a note about that on this forum? It's my own bad I didn't see it, but then I have come to only checking this forum regularly. I only saw it because I clicked in the "wrong" place and went to the main site. 😂

Hardware Questions / Re: IR sensor operation
« Last post by mario on June 19, 2020, 06:15:36 PM »
Hi Jean-Luc,

That's a very interesting question. The sensors have their own IR LEDs and are measuring a difference between amount of light coming back when that LED is on vs. when it's off. That happens a few dozen times a second, and the purpose is to mitigate effect of ambient light. If you just shine a constant light on the sensor it won't do anything as there is no physical object to reflect the emitted light back. But the remote controller is sending alternating signal - what probably happens is that it goes on and off in a frequency close to what sensor is using, then it appears as if certain varying amount of light was reflected back (although it actually comes from the external source). I guess the result must be rather a chaotic excitation of the sensor?

It would be a simple software modification to allow all sensors to just react to incoming light, and turn their own IR LEDs off. I thought of doing it that way in v1 model as it also has CV pads that could override what sensor does, by directly applied 0-3V voltage. Maybe it's a good idea to add it into settings here in v2 model, to allow for such experiments.

There is also a 2-line CV input which is currently not used for anything, within the same menu it should also be possible to assign it to a combination of sensors - so when I get to modify this part of the code, I'd probably implement both functions at the same time.

Cheers,
Mario

Hardware Questions / IR sensor operation
« Last post by jluc on June 17, 2020, 07:59:57 PM »
hello mario

I noticed that the ir sensors responded to the impulses of an IR remote but not to an IR LED lit continuously. how is that explained?
can i hope to achieve a simple interface with an IR led in order to randomly vary a parameter associated with an IR sensor?
thank you !
