I haven't looked into how to use the control tracks yet.. its more complex..

I understand the concept and process of setting the fixed velocities of the Drum, Synth 1 and Synth 2 type.

My drum track for the DRM1 seemed to work ok.. I have it all configured where I want it now.

However, I was experimenting with my SH-32 on a track and I first set it to Synth 1 where you are to get full resolution for velocities. I turned it all the way down the 0 and no sound plays as you would expect. When I turn it to velocity of 1 it plays but at the same loudness as max velocity of 127. So switching it from 0 to 1 is like same as on and off. Selecting the trigger and accenting it does nothing.

I have a XoX box and I seemed to have it working with the Fixed velocities

I'll keep experimenting

I assume SH-32 patches have a velocity sensitivity setting, which may cause it to ignore incoming velocity.

Drum Learn fuxored

I had my DRM1 MK3 hooked up to the Engine for a while now. Had everything working assigned my drum sounds to trigger on the Engine. It was great! I don't know what happened but all of a sudden now when you trigger the sound on several of the sounds like 3 or 4 instruments light up.. Its like they are all reading off the same signal. It seems like the Hats keep connecting to all three drums signals. When I try to go to drum learn mode usually you can select a number for the sound but when I do this with knob 1 the numbers on the display are like shifting all over the place like its trying to display multiple numbers at once. I got fed up and left it for now. So strange. No idea* zfdcgk *bangs his head on the keys

If you are playing MIDI into the machine and go into Learn mode, it will be switching the note assignment with every note...

Search for PB86 on eBay, that should point you in the right direction.

for anyone who's interested I made an abridged version of the manual which pretty much has everything from the first 200 pages (does not include global functions).

It took me a long time but it was worth it as I suck at manuals and it helped me understand and now it's much quicker to find what I'm looking for..

Hope someone finds it useful

Thanks!
Still using mine. I have the cheat sheets laminated and close by but having the manual around really is the best bet.

Updated version of the manual which fixes a couple of errors on the first page.

bit.ly/miniengine

It also has source files in case anyone ever wants to make their own personalised, even shorter version or whatever.

If there are any future updates they will be available at this link, so save that link because I probably won't be announcing any more updates on here or anywhere else, it'll either be updated on this link or it won't be updated at all.

If you have a problem downloading the individual files, try pressing the download all on the left.

Apart from the usual sites...eBay and Reverb.

I see quite a few on Audiofanzine.fr and theres a Facebook group (maybe check back in the thread for the name, I dont do FB) that might get you a result too.
