Some really good patches in there. Lots of shortcut repeated ones too obviously Now going through and noting my favs.
Does anyone have any advice/techniques on how to quickly save/group favourite patches together into one bank without having to copy and paste individual patches spread over 16 banks - and risk overwriting/deleting ones I like etc..?
Thank you!
I do it old school manually, and keeping track with a paper notebook...

anyone here know how to turn the retriggering off?? I see how to set the multi trigger mode etc but after trying lots of stuff and (shock) going through the manual can find nothing on this ...

been annoyed by the clicking envelope outs on the dom for a while now, since that spike when attack/release is very low made them virtually unusable in conjunction with my eurorack VCAs

just happened to find a fix, however

just clipped a 1uf film box resistor across tip and ground of my cable and that's all it takes; smaller values work but leave more spike, and higher values might make the env slower. no other parts needed - just implemented this in a dreadbox 3x3 multiple, which is sweet, because now i have declicked 2 outs for each envelope in the dom for my rack

listen to file attached (best with cans): first pass dom1 as is, second pass with fix (and at the *very* end hard transition from fix to unfixed - makes quite a difference, I think

just had a thought.. although I'm sure i'll be corrected

Considering the Dom1's keyboard sends midi note data and that the Dom1 is paraphonic. So when in paraphonic mode - I assume the oscillators are responding to midi note data.. therefore, could the 3 oscillators respond to incoming midi notes independently from an external midi sequencer?

as if to trigger them polyphonically..
I know they can kind of be triggered this way via the cv inputs but I don't currently have anything capable of doing that.

technically we should be able to do this via midi too right?
if so, it would require some extra midi spec info from MFB.. yeah right!

sure, you can play them paraphonically via an external keyboard too. not sure whether this requires additional midi specs since this behaves just in the same way they're triggered via the dom's own keyboard

sorry.. I think you've misunderstood.

quoted from above:
"could the 3 oscillators respond to incoming midi notes independently from an external midi sequencer?"

From a sequencer - not keyboard.

Thanks for chiming in though..

midi protocol = note number, on/off, etc. there's no paramter that goes "live/sequenced"


posted this a while back -. all synth sounds are dom1 midi sequenced (including the chords) https://soundcloud.com/uibkmedan/domineeeeik

nice work with the Dom1.. enjoyed that piece.

could you clarify what "including the chords"
..and "there's no parameter that goes "live/sequenced" " mean please?

Thanks

chords as in 3 notes at the same time, played paraphonically

as for the live/sequencer thing, the midi in on your dom does not know if the notes coming in are played live via a keyboard or played back by an external sequencer - that's why i did not differentiate between the two in my first repsonse. not meant condescendingly, but google a bit about midi basics and the concepts will become clearer

as for the dom, paraphony works as follows:
as long as the notes coming in are on the same midi channel the dom will play them - one note = all three oscs on that note; two notes = osc one & 3 on lower note, osc 2 on higher; three notes = one osc per note. if you hit three notes first and let one go, the respective osc pitch will fall back to lowest note held; if you dial in a sound with long release and let your chord go, all osc pitches will fall back to that of lowest note held

Cool - thank you.
I'm very familiar with the concepts of midi, but its the first time I've heard the word 'live' being used for the internal keyboard but thanks for that - makes sense. ...I suppose...

AS for the paraphony. Again, well aware of how t works internally but I suppose where i was getting my wires crossed (no pun intended) was with the midi channel it would be receiving on. The only way - would be to be able to set a different midi channel per osc. Therefor not possible.

Thanks for clearing that up.

If anybody is about to try this you'll need a 1uF capacitor not resistor. In fact there are no such things as 1uF resistors.

Hope I did not come off a snarky! Just thought I better clear it up so nobody would go out chasing something that does not exist.

Hi guys - I'm experiencing a strange slow modulation of the filter cut off.

I have the Dom1 set to Manual. I have reset all the sub settings to zero.
There is no modulation on the osc's. No LFO amounts. and so on..

But there a 30 second cycle of the filter cut off - sharp up (stays there for 30 seconds or so) and then sharp drop.
This only seems to occur when in manual mode - so I assume there is something I am missing.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

Does it still happen if you have the synth on hold? Just wondering if it’s an after touch setting. Make sure AT Mod is at 12 o’clock.

Thanks for response.

It is happening when I have it latched YES.
After touch is set to about 2 o'clock.
I will try 12 o'clock.. Is this most likely the culprit?

I once had similar issue and it was related to that - the AT MOD had to be at the 12 o’clock centre position to stop it happening. It was a couple of years ago tho and I can’t remember if that only happened when playing manually or also in latch mode. No harm trying it! Hope it sorts out for you.

I have mine under a blanket for a while now. Perhaps should turn it on again and get inspired.

I once put a blanket over mine and came back a couple hours later and the blanket was in shreds in the corner and the D1 looked slightly more angled toward me as if daring me to try that again.

Lol. Mine's still under. Probably short-circuiting the house on fire while I'm gone for Xmas.

I love the dark bass arps and turning the knobs live.

Envelopes

I love the Dominion 1, the sound and the look/layout, but does anyone else feel like the envelopes could be a little snappier? When trying to make short, punchy bass, I always struggle a bit, because the envelopes seem to have a bit of a strange curve. Compared to my Juno-60, it´s quite obvious.
When I have shorter decay times, the sound somehow gets more quiet quickly, instead of short and snappy. Would like to hear some other opinions!

Cheers
Timm

ADR for all 3 EGs. Might want to check the manual on how to set it for each EG.
