1. You can just route the exp pedal and the mod wheel to the same destination. If you were able to route the exp pedal as a mod source to the mod wheel, another mod source, all you'd be able to control is the amount of effect that the mod wheel has, but that's what the mod wheel already does. Unless I'm missing what you want to do?
2. LPF controls the cutoff. I don't hear any difference between using mod wheel vs CV pedal to control it. Maybe your controller is exceeding the expected range of CV?
3. Yes, because in Multi Mode essentially you've made 2 synths that share the same controls but just one at a time. But if you hit Edit Layer B you should find that the wheel only controls B. Multi Mode is mostly useful for sending MIDI/CCs/NRPNs to 2 different MIDI channels, one for each layer. If you are using the Rev2 more as a performance keyboard, it's probably better to set Multi Mode to OFF and use stacks and splits.

Prophet Rev2 / Re: 8 or 16 voices?
« Last post by guyaguy on Today at 07:31:48 PM »
If you don't have 3 16-voice Rev2s stacked, all with the same patch but each detuned, you're missing out.

OB-6 / Any way to store all the knob settings within DAW?
« Last post by Aimbit on Today at 06:39:21 PM »
I know there are some "VST"s that will basically load/save programs and allow you to adjust your OB-6 from a software perspective, but I don't feel like paying $50-100 for it.  Is there a way to store knob info in Ableton without the use of a VST?

I found out that ableton doesn't support NRPN... had to go into globals and change everything to CC.  So far it has been working just fine.

Would you agree this thread is discussing two separate notions: Music and YouTube Synthesizer Demos? They are related, and not.

Yes, the original topic has broken up into two different issues.  I only intended the YouTube theme.  The other "traditional music" issue has already been discussed elsewhere.  It's a touchy topic.  I think a synthesizer forum is the wrong place for such a discussion, which is why I went into this unwillingly.  It better belongs on a blog as a discussion between mutual enthusiasts striving for a common goal.  It's pointless to go into it without a number of people who share the same views and are striving for the same goal.  Otherwise, it turns into yet another debate with those who don't even care for the idea.  But there are just so few of us. 

I wish more musicians like myself would take the synthesizer seriously.  What would that look like from a video perspective (since we started out talking about YouTube)?  To describe a setting: a musician sitting at a full-sized polyphonic synthesizer under a desk lamp in front of a music stand playing powerful and expressive solo synthesizer pieces, complete from start to finish; fresh new compositions that are ten or twenty minutes long, with dynamic changes, theme and development, melody, harmony, and contrapuntal or even fugal; preludes, interludes, postludes, and meditations; and every note and nuance scored.  In other words, something totally different.  That's all I'm talking about and wishing for.

I think itís a bit unfair to say they arenít taking it seriously. They are simply doing a different style that you donít enjoy. A lot of synth players arenít classically trained musicians but that doesnít make them somehow inferior. Some people might think your music is too redundant with constant use of pads and string sounds. Some people would say that you should just have a SoundCloud account because your videos are visually dull. Doesnít mean they are right or wrong. What Iíve noticed is a lot of people enjoy shorter content these days. While long compositions are nice I can almost be certain people will change videos half way through or divert their attention to something else and have the music play in the background. At the end of the day you have your own style that you do and do quite well. No sense in turning your nose up or looking down on others who donít do the same style. Focus on making your music be unique in the synth sub genre rather than focusing on making everyone else adopt your style.

My first attempt at syncing the Prophet X with my DAW for a little Manfredini tribute

Put a little Prophet 6 in there for some textures.

Great work again. Nice atmospherics.

Thanks. I think Iíll attempt a few more performances with this type of style this weekend.

I look forward to it. You are very talented.
