I'm using v1.02 (not v1.20) firmware. Since i cannot downgrade - I'm digging into the release firmware first before upgrading -- or unless there is something I absolutely need that I cannot do with the older firmware. Yes - user arps was up there - but the threshold has not been crossed yet where I need to perform with the arp I was planning on generating.
It would be great if the problem could be reproduced by starting with an AWM2 initialized voice and adding some standard preset part or some other 1,2,3 procedure that can be duplicated.
Bingo, tried on a preset today and the problem ist there. Open "Rezz Punch" and go to edit - control, activate the green little "auto detect" and move the knobs. Nothing happens! Knobs are not detected!
Good news - I think I see what you're seeing. Rezz Punch, by default, does not detect when you spin the assignable knobs.
However, I bet you that if you tried some of the other controls - auto detect would detect them.
Looking at the list - some of the sources have no buttons or dials to turn (like envelope follower and MS Lane). So these we would expect would never auto detect because they have no interface to detect.
However, the other detectable controls - try:
1) Pitch Bend
2) Modulation Wheel
3) The [ASSIGN 1] or [ASSIGN 2] button
4) Mash down on a key hard enough to make "aftertouch" get detected
5) Touch the ribbon area
6) If you have any foot controllers - activate them
You'll probably notice that all of the above work fine and it's just the knobs that are not detected.
Bad news - this isn't a problem.
Why? Well, the assignable knobs are not detected because they're not activated. The knobs which can be assignable knobs can also be other knobs - hard-coded knobs with functions printed above the knobs (1=Cutoff, 2=Resonance, etc.. if the [TONE] button is lit. or 1=Low, 2=Low Mid/Mid F, etc. if the [EQ/FX] button is lit, and 1=Swing, 2=Unit Multiply, etc.. if the [ARP/MS] button is lit). In order for these knobs to be assignable knobs, the [ASSIGN] button - which is to the right of the assignable knobs and to the left of the super-knob - must be activated.
Press the [ASSIGN] button and try again.
It's fun(damental) to learn these - and a great way to learn is to bump into behavior like this and leverage the forum.
Now going off on a "related tangent":
I sure wish the non-assign function of one row of these knobs was still tempo - and I'm sure the organ grinders would appreciate an extra fader to truly get all 9 bar control at once. The silkscreen around the 9th fader could be reverse (white background) and make this one an assignable fader vs. tied to part 1-8 control. Just an idea for Montage 2. Of course above the new fader - a knob which assumes tempo at least when [ARP/MS] is lit.
Hi Bad MIster, I went over this again and nowhere in the first superknob lesson do I find the instruction that you have to press the assign button next to the superknob. I don't remember ever reading it in the subsequent lessons either. But it's very important and probably should be mentioned, especially since the lesson about the assignable knobs comes after all the superknob lessons and people have no idea about the knobs and all those buttons while they're trying to learn the superknob.
