Modulation routings

How are modulation routings implemented?
Is there a modmatrix kind of system apart from the fixed-knob/slider system?

You mentioned in another post that the super 6 would respond to release velocity as in the MPE standard. Can this be set to affect a parameter such as release time?

If there is a mod routing system, would certain FX parameters be adresseable?

Firstly there are the dedicated modulation routings in the voice area of the panel.
Beyond this there is an 8 source to 8 destination matrix assignable using the patch and bank buttons.
Furthermore, modulations can also be assigned from the 8 sources directly to faders & pots by moving said control

The synth actually responds to release velocity in non-MPE mode as well. This is by default mapped to both envelopes by a fixed amount. To our ears the fixed amount is almost always very usable and can be adjusted by moving the release control sliders to get a useful range. Note that most non-MPE MIDI keyboard controllers don't implement release velocity, but there is no reason why they shouldn't, this has always confused me.

Yes and delay time and feedback are map-able

How would this work ?
Keeping track of the already used sources , destinations and mod.amounts without a visual indicator ?

Hi,

When choosing 'mod assign' all active sources and all active destinations illuminate.
Pressing a source first illuminates the destinations it is mapped to.
Pressing a destination then allows you to assign an amount, touching the encoder shows you the current mod amount on the LEDs, moving it further adjusts the amount

Pressing a destination first illuminates all sources that map to it.
Pressing a source then allows you to assign an amount, touching the encoder shows you the current mod amount on the LEDs, moving it further adjusts the amount

All modulations can be cleared by pressing SHIFT+MODASSIGN

It sounds a bit fiddly but in fact its amazingly fast an intuitive, three clicks get you dialling in a modulation and you can always check what's mapped to what and by how much very quickly.

(Example user experience)
Press:MODASSIGN - to show modulations
Press:DESTINATION - to show sources
Press:SOURCE - to show current mod amount and optionally enter new amount
Move:ENCODER - to dial in amount

When you've done it a few times its almost automatic and you can do it 'on the fly' or so to speak
