Mopho 1.4 Manual Addendum

Mopho 1.4 Manual Addendum
Mopho
Manual Addendum
The latest version of the Mopho operating system makes some
additions and changes that are not documented in the manual.
Global Parameters
Pedal Mode: Norm, Arp – When set to Arp, MIDI sustain pedal
on messages (CC# 64) will latch the arpeggiated notes when
the arpeggiator is on. When the arpeggiator is off, sustain pedal
messages have the normal, expected effect.
M Program Ch: On, Off – When on, Mopho responds to MIDI
program and bank change messages. When off, Mopho ignores
program and bank change messages, but continues to receive other
MIDI messages.
Program Parameters
Arpeggiator Mode: see table – Several new arpeggiator modes
have been added. See the table below for details.

Sequence 2 Destination: Seq1 Slew
Sequence 4 Destination: Seq3 Slew – In modular analog
synthesizers, a lag processor or slew limiter is used to create a
time-varying change—a smooth transition—between successive,
discrete control voltage levels. The rate of change is called the
slew rate and one common application is to create a glide (aka
portamento) effect between notes.
Among the possible destinations for Mopho sequences two and
four is a sequence-only parameter called Slew. Slew behaves a
little differently from the other modulation destinations, in that it is
not really a destination at all; instead, it affects the sequence above
it. That is, if Seq1 Slew is the chosen destination for sequence two,
it controls sequence one, and Seq3 Slew in sequence four controls
sequence three.
In Mopho’s sequencer, Slew sets the slew rate between the
previous step’s value and the current step’s value when the step is
gated on. Confused yet? This should help: let’s say sequence one
is routed to oscillator frequency and sequence two to Seq1 Slew.
Increasing the Slew value for step four will cause the oscillator
frequency to glide from the step three value when step four is
gated on. The higher the Slew value, the slower the slew rate. And
the slew rate can be different for each step. But its not just for
oscillator glide. Slew can be applied to any of the destinations. For
example, sequence three could be routed to filter cutoff with Slew
in sequence four used to create a less abrupt transition from one
step to the next.
Note: Depending upon the BPM and Clock Divide settings, the
slew rate can actually exceed the time the envelopes are gated
on, causing a step in the affected sequence to not reach its set
value. For example, if Slew is applied to oscillator frequency,
high Slew values may cause a step to sound flat or sharp. If
that’s not what you want, simply reduce the Slew value.
Other New Features
Tap Tempo – Hold down Assign Parameters and tap Push It to
set the tempo. On the fifth tap, the tempo changes and is displayed
on the LCD.
Quick Edit – When Assign Parameters is on, choose a parameter
to edit with any of the four Assignable Parameters knobs, and
change the value using the Program knob.
