Received the Gecho this week. Brilliant! Thanks Mario.

I love channel 31, programming a chord progression in and the granular sample that follows is so lush. Super sounding.

One q - if I have a midi keyboard plugged in (keystep) is it correct that on a channel (i.e. 31) I need to cover both S2 AND hold a key on the controller to input a sample? It seems if I don't press a key it doesn't matter if S2 is covered or not.

Thanks!

Glad you like the synth, thank you for a nice feedback! :)

Well yes with default settings it works as you say - it should be possible to achieve what you want by either locking the sensor S2 at "recording" position, or changing the MIDI polyphony setting, to some mode where the "note off" is ignored (as if you kept holding the keys):

-- check the paragraph "IR Sensors Override", press B2 2-3 times and watch the orange LED lights (there is a mistake in the printed manual, it does not lock it at its current position but rather adjusts the level by pressing buttons repeatedly)

-- and the "MIDI Polyphony" setting, some of the SUSTAIN_* modes should be useful here.
