XY Pad with 4 inputs

Post by roger-s. » Sun Oct 22, 2017 9:53 pm

I would like to see another XY Pad with 4 inputs.
Having 4 inputs would allow to control 4 parameters at a time, useful for Vector Synthesis
(or has someone found another way of doing that?)

Hope you Steinberg guys consider it.
All the best.

Hello Roger,

That is possible. Create a Program with a Layer and 4 Zones.

Then in the Modulation Matrix of each zone you set the XY Pad as source and volume 1 as destination.

For Zone 1 + 2 I take the vertical pad and for zone 3 + 4 the horizontal pad.

Then I set the Depth for Zone 1 to +100 for Zone 2 to -100 the same then also for zone 3 + 4.

Now it should work.

However, I have not yet figured out how to automate this.

Hi Maggie!

I am not sure, what I am doing wrong, but I cannot find the XY Pad as Mod source, neither on Program level, nor Layer nor oscillators. Any ideas?

I am using versión 6.0.15 on Win 7 Pro.
All the best and thanks in advance.

Roger

Hi Roger,

You can use the Sphere H and Sphere V found under Quick Controls.
Connect the xypad template to quick controls 9 and 10.

Or you could try to do it with script.
PadX and PadY should appear as modulation source under Modulation Module

Code: Select all

defineParameter("XYPadX",nil,0,-100,100)
defineParameter("XYPadY",nil,0,-100,100)

defineModulation("PadX",true)
defineModulation("PadY",true)

function calcModulation()
    padX=XYPadX/100
    padY=XYPadY/100
    return padX,padY
end

Hi misohoza!

You did it again! It works like a charme. Thanks a lot for your help.
Also Maggie, thanks a lot to you for trying to help me out.

I chose the option with the Sphere, as I am not that programmer guy...

Again, thanks a lot.
All the best to both of you.
