General Discussion / Re: Gecho LoopSynth input biasing to Right Channel
« Last post by mario on June 24, 2023, 07:06:24 PM »
Hi Michael,
If I remember correctly there isn't such setting (might be a good idea to add it 8)), however if the inputs were set to some of the modes, which only use one channel, signal from the other one might still be leaking in. To rule this out you can check input configuration (B4 during play) or even easier, to be 100% sure just reset all settings using 4321-SET command - hopefully that should sort it out. You can also try different headphones to be sure it wasn't a faulty cable or something. If it is indeed a hardware problem, no worries, we repair everything for free, regardless if the official warranty expired or not. To arrange a return, please email me to discuss the details (we have changed the address since).
Cheers,
Mario

General Discussion / Gecho LoopSynth input biasing to Right Channel
« Last post by Msmiley78 on June 23, 2023, 05:10:55 PM »
Mario and all others,

I have had my Gecho for quite a while now. Just recently I noticed that the input is severely biased to the Right channel. There is some sound coming into the left, but faintly. I'm wondering if there is a channel pan setting that I can check. If not, could it be something internally that has gone awry. If that's the case, can I buy a new board to replace it? Thanks a ton!

Just running into this as I'm pulling a lot of my serial interfaceable gear out to see what it all says to my computer. I use my Teenage Engineering OP-Z with the Line Module or you could use the OP-Lab Module installed to send midi instructions to the Gecho. Using one of the pages on the OP-Z I'm able to use the 4 pots via 4 pages of settings on the OP-Z to manipulate the MI Clouds to its fullest, although only 4 settings at a time, then paging through to adjust the others. I have taken this out because it only requires the 2 device and one TRRS cable and then of course a recording medium. All the best.

Hi Pablo,
that sounds awesome!
there seems to be a problem with the link, maybe the design isn't public?
(I'm not familiar with how thingiverse works, just my guess)
Cheers,
Mario

Hardware Questions / 3d print enclosure for Glo V1
« Last post by pabloantxon on January 12, 2023, 09:37:16 AM »
Hey there, I made an enclosure for this wonderful piece of hardware, after having it naked for years.
You can download it for 3d printing here:
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5782570
You can also download the stls for the board and the rubber button thing so you can make your own enclosure in case you rather doing that.
Enjoy!  :)

The uploaded files and folder match the instructions in the post you've linked. I'll try again with the ready-made folder soon :)

-- ah and I also forgot to say that this #221 mellotron will not emit sound without an external MIDI keyboard, it does not use internal chord generator or stored songs, I may add that later but perhaps it is not that interesting or useful, the real fun is when you can start and stop individual samples at will. A better idea would be to: 1) control replay speed (add a pitch shifter) so you don't need to generate samples for every single note, and 2) split the keyboard into more zones, where each zone uses different rules - one or more samples with or without pitch shifting.

I have tried a few times but still B1 doesn't seem to start any song. Bu that's ok, not the end of the world, just pointing it out for feedback.

-- OK this works fine in my unit, but (as I forgot to mention) not right away after start, you need to sample a sound first (or at some point later) using sensor S2 to hear anything. Ideally you should sample a clean tone without noises and scratches, so you can hear the chords nicely. Then you can use S4 to make the sound richer.

I see, I thought the process was like the mellotron in the way that filename wasn't important. Now renaming by it rec000xx it works :)

-- cool, thank you for the update! 8)

I've added a detailed explanation to the error message, as this also happens when your unit is "too new" and already has the latest firmware. Not sure what exactly happened but if you found some other binary file from outside of that link, it is not likely to work - your unit probably just ignored it (as it does a couple of checks first) and thankfully did not try to re-flash it, as that would possibly brick it.

Riiight, that makes sense! The message surely will help the next dummies like me.

-- i'll check the B1 function, it might be broken, or there might be a bug that causes it not working if some other channel ran previously and corrupted something in the memory (to be sure it's not this, you can do "hard reset" by holding RST for a few seconds, until the machine restarts, then run the #31 as the first thing).

-- did you upload samples in correct format and directory structure? there was a discussion about this here, with an example sample pack that is proven to work.

The uploaded files and folder match the instructions in the post you've linked. I'll try again with the ready-made folder soon :)

-- this should work, what are file names? they need to keep the existing format, if you can't make it work feel free to upload an example of such wav file here and I'll check it out.

Thank you so much Mario! Best customer service ever :)))
