  • Hi @pfrf! @dest4b's list answered a lot - I'm just jumping in to answer number 5: the upper limit is 32bit, 96k
  • @Wolf_Gang No problem! At the moment the best way would be to estimate the amount of bars based on either the number of bars in the DAW you're exporting the stems from (assuming you're matching the tempo), or using the coloured pads in the kit row i…

  • Hi @MPrinsen! Just a note that recording CCs straight from a MIDI input has now been implemented in the 2.0 firmware that's just been released as a beta
  • Hi @Wolf_Gang! Try starting a new kit (shift+kit), adding a stem into the first sample slot, making sure it's set to cut. Now extend the track length to the number of bars your stem will take up (shift + ◄►) and zoom all the way out (press and turn …

  • Hi @flip! Generally, the firmware updates are designed to be backwards compatible with the shortcuts. There's no way to 100% guarantee this, but the shortcuts were also designed with the intention of being compatible with future updates, so there wo…
  • Hi @Cosmo! As @minigoat was saying, you can assign each track parameter to MIDI CC control, but you do need to learn them first. This just means going into each track you want to control, navigating to the volume parameter (you can use the shortcuts…
  • Hi @TallGuy! Just going to confirm that yes, it does come with an 16GB SD card included. The specs for the current cards can be found here: http://www.adata.com/us/specification/208
  • Thanks for the feedback @duncandisorderly. We'll take that on board! Glad you got it working in the end
  • Hi @n00b! Glad that it worked for you Just dropping in to mention that CUSTUM isn't a standard folder that the Deluge ships with, so it's likely that it's the previous owner creating a space to store their own samples separately from the ones it sh…
  • @DVB Just to provide an update here: While the limit at the moment is 12, in the new update this will be unlimited. So you'll be able assign external control to as many of these features as you like

  • Hi @Bloodfish! Unfortunately this isn't possible with the current firmware. Feel free to post (or upvote) a suggestion on our software suggestions page, though: http://forums.synthstrom.com/categories/deluge-suggestions
  • Hi @OnoSendai! Unfortunately, there's currently no feature to do this, however it is quite a popular feature request. It's worth upvoting a post on the software suggestions page about it, as Rohan considers these as he's writing each firmware update…
  • Hi @hardwarecore! In order to send MIDI out from the Deluge to other modules/instruments/etc you actually don't need to use the learn button. All you need to do is open a new MIDI track, set it to the channel the FRR will be receiving on and start p…
  • Hi @Aken! Sorry this has taken me a while to get back to. Glad you're enjoying the Deluge sampler! The problem you're referring to in your last post does seem to be a bug, sorry - Rohan's going to investigate and I'll get back to you if he finds any…

  • @amiga909 Basically, it's halfway between mono and polyphonic. It lets you play more than one note at the same time, but will cut the current notes at the next note event
  • Hi @MoonWolf! Is it that the sockets themselves are loose/wobbly/moving or is it that MIDI cables don't seem to stay in place? If it's the first, send me an email at sam.carswell@synthstrom.com. If it's the second, maybe try a few different cables a…
  • Hi @Audiorotic! Welcome to the forum! In terms of CC Recording, if you're referring to recording an incoming CC controlling one of the gold knobs, which is outputting that same CC through a MIDI track, then you're correct in that it's not currently…
  • @emptyvessel Again, sort of! There's a similar feature to this intended for the purpose of re-sampling, so it records the Deluge's output instead of inputs into the Deluge. You could get it to record input, though, by setting up a live input as an o…
  • Hi @Aken! Interesting that you're getting this problem. I can't think of a solution/workaround off the top of my head, aside from the one you're currently using, but if I think of anything I'll post it here. Apart from that, @alien_brain's got a goo…

  • @emptyvessel Sort of - it's not quite like a looper, in that it won't playback and loop immediately, although you can sample things while a track is playing by recording them into a new kit track row. To do this, just hold down the audition pad of t…
  • @Aken Ah, I think misunderstood the question (as well as the response) previously, sorry. MIDI thru might not be what you want after all. If I'm reading correctly this time, you want the MPX16 to be the sampler and to be able to play the pads on it.…

  • Hi @Hoboy! While this feature doesn't exist yet, you could achieve a similar effect by turning the release time of a synth patch to full, with the polyphony setting on "AUTO". It's not quite what you're looking for, as the notes will eventually deca…
  • Yeah, @alien_brain's correct! You want any MIDI thru feature on the akai to be turned off, with the Deluge's MIDI thru turned on, which will avoid a loop.
    in MIDI loop Comment by Sam April 2
  • @alien_brain haha are you referring to the direction of the brackets/arrows? ( >< ) For what it's worth, I've always thought about them as arrows (i.e. "settings" THEN "MIDI" THEN "THRU"), but maybe I've been doing this the wrong way around…

  • Hey @mpiecora! Thought I should just mention that I've let Rohan know about this and he's going to look into it. I'll update this if he finds anything. If the issue develops any more, or you'd like to send us synth/song files, feel free to email me …
  • @minigoat Yeah, you're correct. In order for the track to wait before it starts, it needs another track to be playing in order for it to sync against. Otherwise it starts playing on the next beat. Is this what you're experiencing? Or is it launching…
  • Hi @Aken, you should be fine. As @alien_brain mentioned, just enable midi 'thru' in the settings menu. Go to "Settings" > "MIDI" > "THRU" to select "on" or "off"

  • Hi @RandomAztec! My guess would also be that turning down the individual oscillator volumes might help. Depending on your patching, you might need to go a little lower than 50 percent. Is this happening with every sample in the pack or just with cer…
  • Hi @Eddy! Your first observation ("when I press a pad in the grid and simultaneously turn the <> Knob I can change velocity") is correct and documented in the manual. Currently, though, there's no way to assign velocity to a gold knob. Perhaps…
  • @flutehead Yeah, unfortunately @amiga909 is correct on this one. Feel free to post a firmware suggestion on that part of the forum though, if you can think of a good idea/feature that would make this easier
