lol ... yeah 'maturity' has its advantages ... esp. when it comes to coding
as I said above, I was just genuinely interested if anyone was interested in this or not, its ok, its ok, if not
this is kind of 'different' for the modular world, and there are many debates on 'generic modules' in Eurorack,
and the Percussa SSP , gets both love and hate thrown at it...
but Im keen to explore it, and find out if Orac is useful in this format, and also in what kind of form. (perhaps it has to be different) - this is also true on the rPI, does it have to change form to work better in headless format?
I'm also intrigued about its potential role with Bela (non-salt) as a way to build an interesting bespoke instrument.
(given its so easy to add hardware to bela)
AndyCap As a side, how is the Nebulae what processor has that got?
it's a rPI3 running arch linux. so its powerful.
its pretty good for CV input , but the PD interface is a bit quirky in places... and not really 'fully featured'
but mainly because Qubit I think have been balancing the Nebulae as a 'ready to use granular synth' , with a bit of DIY on the side - in some ways I think that is great approach - its granular synth is fantastic, well worth its price alone (imo) , so being able to extend it does feel like a bonus ... and frankly I think only a subset of users ever bother!.
(no cv output is a bit of a pity, but again, its because it was not needed for its 'primary' purpose)
so a very different module to Salt, they don't really compete - esp. for me, as for some reason, I seem to alway be using my Salt for CV output (*) , rather than audio.. I guess, probably this will be true for Orac too, I will tend to use Orac on Salt as a CV processor.
- Ive not created the CV output module yet, ran out of time, but its a trivial bit of PD
- you'll also find, Ive got an alternative cv input modules available for salt/bela (modules_exp), but they were causing me trouble, so I went for a simpler implementation for the beta. I'll review these at some point, as I think they would be more cpu efficient.
