MV-General Production / MIDI feedback
« on: April 26, 2021, 06:59:31 pm »
I'm having some problems with MIDI feedback on the MV8000.
I have the MV8000, reface DX, ASR10, Kordbot, OP1 and JX8P all connected via a motu timepeice midi patchbay.
The problem is that when entering midi into the MV from the Korbot, I get midi feedback.

The obvious place to fix this is in the timepiece midi patchbay. It's a very sophisticated unit with lots of filtering and connectivity options. But i seem to be chasing my tail and not able to fix my problem no matter what I do on the timepiece.
So, I was wondering, does anyone know of any settings on the MV that might help getting rid of midi feedback?

thanks for that.

that is a massive list.

not sure if i grasp what your saying the mv can't do here...but i think "event list" might be what you're looking for to change the drum sounds.
play a pattern of one shots.  resample a number of times with delays or whatever, and then chop in different lengths every which way to sunday.
then lay down a pattern (you can then save your midi track into your template library for easy use on any later projects), or  download a midi pattern you like and use it.

next, go to track, hit event list. scroll over to note. that's where you can easily change your samples around and choose different ones, while keeping the same pattern.

when you come up with a section in your pattern that you like, resample it, cut it up keep the good bit and add it to a pad in the same drum instrument. rinse and repeat...

if you're after a boom bap style, then maybe see waxdat's tutorial on getting the SP swing on the MV.

As it is, I'm worried that any day my MV is going to say "i'm sorry dave, i can't do that".
it's too powerful already. It needs features removed, not added. it probably heard that...

congrats on the soon-to-be new machine.

the MV is pretty easy to use. but you can go very deep.

--one issue you might have is this -- when you press "sample" it will probably open with optical (digital) input as default. to change this, press  "system" button then "initialise". this will change the input to "analogue".

--this a very basic tip, but it confused me at first. where the hell are my samples? after sampling, you are given a page with the option of making your sample into a patch or phrase (look those up in the manual). if you don't choose one of those, and move on to more sampling, it seems like your sample has disappeared.
any sample you make or use, can be found here -- hit "project" button, then open "sample manager". all your samples are sitting in a list to choose from.
have a look at videos by roger the midi maniac (he doesn't lie, he really is a midi maniac). roger walks you through every step, with lots of enthusiasm. following his video instructions is great for getting to learn the machine.
waxdat has lot so videos. however, he is often illustrating more obscure features of the MV. but like with roger, following his instructions will make your explore and understand the machine.

have fun.

thanks for another excellent MV video! they always inspire me to get busy with the MV

MV-General Production / Re: How do you backup your beats?
« on: March 05, 2019, 07:57:30 pm »
how slow are your back-ups? might be something wrong with your machine. i use lots of long audio tracks and USB transfer to 'puter only takes a few minutes.

or are you saying that a few mintues is too long a time?

MV-General Production / Re: Song Mode vs Pattern Mode
« on: February 24, 2019, 07:28:13 pm »
i use neither pattern or song mode. song structure is my weak point.
i like the idea of pattern mode, but it never seems to work out.

i make a 12 bar loop, with plenty of obvious changes every four bars (drum rolls, crash on the one etc.).
then i go to the pad mute page, and record the pad mutes, turning something on/off every 4 or 8 bars. works fine for simple, old style house music. might not be the best approach for other style of music.

thanks so much for the patches.

the sampling guide is also much appreciated...turns out i've been doing it all wrong.

On the sampling page, what is listed as input? Analogue or digital? Change to analogue on the system page by doing a reset. Details for doing this are on the site

this sounds great! very interested.
from looking at some pics of the original, it seems like a fairly complicated little unit. i notice the original has surface mount mini SMD chips.

damn, how good are those tracks!
linn drum and roland pre-808 (the cr line) might be a better fit than then an 808, 909.

as for getting "that" sound, well, i'm a supremely lazy bastard -- i'd just sample drums that have the sound and be done with it.

can you run midi from your computer to the mv? maybe find a software arp. given how central the arp is to this music, it might be worth finding a good one.
if you don't want to bother with a midi connection. just run a software arp. look at what it does with the notes, then replicate that on the piano roll.
