Not sure I follow - how would you "sample" something like a Suitcase Rhodes pan curve?orthodox wrote: ↑31 May 2020For panning, I would use Audio by Audio amplitude/ring modulation, without any CV conversion.selig wrote: ↑31 May 2020i just want to add that recording CV to audio is not just for "audio rate" effects!
For example, I've long been a fan of the Rhodes Suitcase stereo panning, recognizing it's slightly odd response and failing to duplicate it with any known LFO shape. So I "sampled" it.
To do this, I ran a sine wave through the external input, and recorded both channels as audio. Then I looped that and loaded it into an NNXT, and used Audio to CV (Thor IIRC) to convert to a CV which I used to control the level of the signal to be affected. BTW, this was not a simple waveform on the panning, and there would have been no way to replicate this shape with any available tools to my knowledge.
The result was for the first time I was able to hear the classing Rhodes panning applied to any signal, via a slightly off the beaten track approach: sampling a CV (by converting to audio).
I basically ran a 1k Sine through the instrument, sampled that and looped it in an NNXT (so I could adjust the rate by pitching the sample), then sent that into two Pulverisers (Left/Right) to generate the CV which I then sent to Thor to apply the amp modulation to the external signal. Worked a charm, and was around the time I was messing with more "stereo CV" ideas…
