Moving multiple controls with one MIDI knob

Post by asktoby »

My aim is to have a single MIDI knob that, when I turn it, multiple things are adjusted in Modular.

Specifically, I want one knob to:

Attenuate gain
Boost gain of a low shelving parametric filter
...across two channels

I've been looking in Modular and I can't see a way to do it.

Anyone got a tip on how to do this?

Solved it!
Found I could use SpaceF's CC5 module so:

There's quite a few ways to accomplish this in modular. Might be worth finding one or two more ways just so you understand control signals better.

Care to elaborate? As far as I could tell the knobs for the Vol Att and 12dB LowShelfEQ don't have control signal inputs so the only way I could think to do it was to "go outside" of Modular and pre-process the MIDI CC signals using CC5.

In that specific case I would say:

1. If you are seeking to automate a 'vol Att' that sounds more like an 'Amp' to me.

2. Look to some of the better filters on offer for Modular. Some of these may be in the files section of this site, and I also highly recommend 3rd party offerings that extend scope Modular (SpaceF & Adern/Flexor for instance).

I have a similar module inside of modular for moving 16 Controls outside or inside of modular with lag processing to control the rate using curve modifiers for each of the 16controls.
I use it for Hammond B3 drawbars on my HX-3 Organ Module.


Lower right corner of project window.
BC2x2 > XITE-1 MIDI Out > HX-3 hardware module.

Following a prompt from Valis I investigated BCModular, which I'd not installed since I rebuild my PC and completely forgotten existed!
Using that I was able to make a cleaner module that just takes one MIDI CC input and duplicates and scales that to multiple controls so:

Coolness.
Stan Getz sounding Alto and Upright is cool school.

No but the Brubeck 5 was top shelf.
Drummer did amazing drum Solos too.

Brubecks piano chops were okay too but his compositions were classic.
Take 5, blue rondo ala Turk, etc.

Yes, I know his records ! :wink:

After listening to Toby´s audio example above, I just only wondered why he replied "I think it was Dave Brubeck!" when you liked the Stan Getz type alto sax sound.
So, my post was just only a joke.

B.t.w.,- "Take 5" and "Blue Rondo á la Turk" were already on the same record in 1959,- "Time Out".
The lineup were four,- Brubeck, Desmond, Wright, Morello.
Do you mean Joe Morello on the drums ?

(We need a "Jazz" subdevision in "Off Topic" !)

:lol:
