Hello Bad Mister!
Hello dear community!
Let me briefly introduce myself as I am new to this community and later I'll describe my problem
I am not a professional musician. But I am fond of synthesizers and music making since mid 90s. Music is the second part of me.
I started creating music with Trackers on PC, samples combining in different types of software.
I owned different Yamaha hardware - PSS-51, PSR-320, 730, 1500, 910. Motif XS, XF, MOX, MX
I tried Kronos and Krome also.
Now i've got MODX.
Recent 10 years I fell in love with 70s jazz-fusion bands and artists from USA, Japan and Europe. That's what I call real music of the time I will never get in.
So I try to recreate the soul of that time in my music.
The MOTIF philosophy is very close to me. I am talking about principles of making music via its constructing like a puzzle.
As I am a guitar player, I know chords, I can sing songs.
What I am awaited from MOTIF - that it allows me to build a visible structure of my music via patterns and chains.
Along with it, beautiful arpeggios and their logic give me the inspiration to create any music with any instruments even if i can't play the instrument itself.
I like to spend time understanding the psychology and philosophy of drummers, bassists, keyboardists.
That's why I usually create every track ONLY with the help of arpeggios.
It's like a PSR style, but I can create it from scratch and change everything.
The main problem of Motif was that it's engine allowed me to play only 4 arps simultaneously. I wanted more.
MODX, as I understand it right, allows me to turn ON all 16 arpeggios on all 16 instruments. It is a dramatical improvement for me as a 25 year Yamaha customer.
NOW about PROBLEM.
When I create a perfromance (INIT) (calling musicians to the recording studio - as Phil says in one of his great videos) - Drums, Bass, E-piano, I add to every intrument an arpeggio.
After that I hit record button and a pattern links to my performance automatically.
Then I record every instrument individually just playing chords. 4 measures.
When the record is done, I play it and try to set up the volume of each track and every time I use epiano (for example Case 73 soft instrument (Arp - MC_16Beat Medium_C) in my perfromance (so in the pattern) - I CANNOT neither increase nor decrease the REAL volume of this epiano.
It means that I move the slider up and down, I can see that onscreen slider moves along with it, but nothing happens to the real volume!
The first track with the drums and the second track with the bass haven't got any problems with volume setting.
I tried to erase my track with that epiano, then I created it again, but nothing helps.
After that I called to another MODX owner I know, sent him a video and described in details what did I do so he could recreate this trouble and he confirmed to me that he's got the same problem!
Now we are army of two now, facing the same trouble.
Please, help us ! Is it a bug? Or we do something wrong?
Correct work of arpeggios - is the initial thing that I expect from MODX...
with respect to your work,
