A few questions before ordering a Deluge
I currently perform with the digitakt + ableton + EHX45000 + minitaur + bass station
I'm tired of the computer, and I find it very unreliable in dificult conditions ( sand, dust, dodgy electricity etc.. ) because i travel a lot.
before changing my live system, i have a few questions, for deluge experiemented users, I want to be sure i'm not gonna loose my time trying to adapt my live set to a machine that doesn't fit my needs
Even if, there's always a way to adapt ...
so here are my questions
1 - Is it possible / easy to connect an external midi controler to control some of the midi parameters, like the volumes of the drums, the mutes for each drum sound, some FX ( idealy FX on whole song )
If yes, will it work with the USB port directly ?
2- about the Song mode, Is it possible to have a '' next scene '' programmed somehow ? like on a MPC, idealy , working on song mode, having each part looping indefinitly, and just having to press next when I feel it ( That's how I work for now )
3- Is it possible to tweak some parameters in a live situation ? or the combinaison of shift make it impossible ?
4- how 's the overall quality of the sound ? compared to octatrack / MPC
5- Running the minitaur thru the machine , will I be able to use EQ/FX/Comp/Sidechain on the minitaur ? How easy is it to keep the same setting from one song to another ?
6- is it possible to use in it in daylight ?
I was using the push before, and i remember a soundcheck in Venice during the day.... Impossible to see anything with the sun, all pads were white !
Thanks a lot
