Novation Mininova Modulation Wheel question

Novation Mininova Modulation Wheel question

I've been playing around with a novation mininova the past few weeks. I noticed something on the Classic synth sound "Tearsinrain DC"

When you flip the modulation switch on this particular sound the actual pitch of the notes moves up a half step.

On every other sound I've played the modulation wheel does not change the actual pitch. It only enhances the sound of the patch.

Is this just a glitch? Is there any way to fix this?

I'm bummed out because the sound is really cool, but can't have the pitch change. Especially since I use the modulation wheel for different sounds and have to switch back and forth.


Thanks for the help.

generally mod wheels can be assigned to different things. I don’t have a mininova but my guess is it’s not a glitch but a setting you can change. You probably want the mod wheel to control filter cutoff or mod amount of vibrato. Dig in and read the manual. Copy the preset to another slot before you mess with it in case you accidentally screw it up. Go for it. You can do it.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll see if I can adjust it.

You can definitely use he mod wheel to affect osc pitches...either individual ones or all of them. It’s cool because you can have it go with the lfo and add vibrato to one osc, etc...ton of possibilities.

I just used it to make a thx Dolby sound kind of thing

I think that's intentional. "Tearsinrain" is a reference to a part of Blade Runner where the synth has this beautiful pitch slide. The patch was likely designed to have the pitch slide around at will. If you don't like it, you can reprogram it in the modulation matrix or whatever Novation's equivalent is.

Novation mininova problems

I just boight a MiniNova and it is habing problems, if i use the pitch wheel it affects some of the sounds or presets ( not all of them ) changing the pitch a half step and if I turn the mininova off and then turn it on, the pitch on all sounds get normal again until i use the pitch wheel again because they get out of tune
I don’t know if i moved something or the keyboard is defective
Is there a way to reset the synth to the factory settings?

@ jeremymusicman @ Pyro Frak have you contacted Novation? I don't know if you checked the manual, seems to me like this is an issue of assigning the mod and pitch wheels and setting their value (ranges)? I could be wrong, of course.

This was fixed in a fairly recent(!) firmware update, 1.5.
