OS2 :: Volume of parts in Multi not affecting vca ...

Post by kalaspace »

it's only when vca part are modulated
for example i have a
-drum seq patch with snare on vca2 0% modulated by eg2 100%
-stabs patch with vca4 0% modulated by btn2 75%
both are not affected by Multi Volume
(the menu Multi to control Volume of each part of multitimbral)

little complex to explain,
if needed, i can make a video ...

I can confirm this bevaviour. Here are some easy steps to demonstrate it:
- Setup an init sound with one part (Osc1 - Mixer1 - Filter1 - VCA1); set VCA1 volume to 100%
- Modify the part volume on multi page 1, the volume changes as expected
- Now set VCA1 volume to zero, VCA1 modulation source to e.g. ENV1, modulation intensity to 100% (i.e. volume contour defined by ENV1)
- If you now try to modify the part volume on the multi page, it dos not vary, but stays at full volume

the manual says
"Volume adds or subtracts from all VCA levels of the Part"

i think the approach was to avoid a multiplication in the calculation of final volume.
i don't know if the add or subtracts on the modulation level could be easy to do ...

I have been informed that what I wrote in the Addendum was incorrect. The calculation for the Part Volume is actually a multiplication of the VCA level by the Part Level, so it is, in fact, a scaling of the VCA Level. What’s not taken into account is the modulation amount of the VCA Level. This will have to be addressed in a future update.

Yes, this has been fixed now. Jim is working on the next version for release, so it’s good to get any bugs you find noted here for him to check.

Thanks to all,
John B.
