Is there a way to remove the current pitch wheel assignment and learn it to one of the ribbon strips? When learning a CC fader to the ribbon I'm hearing a lot of zipper effect because I'm only able to trigger 128 steps.

Fixed my automation issues. Had to "sort and compress" automation IDs.

i would love to have some kind of iPad control of this ensemble (no, i don't want any screen sharing apps). Is anyone doing this somehow? OSC? i also don't seem to be able to automate anything in this ensemble in Logic/Reaktor 6.21.

This might be one of the coolest ensembles I ever came across. Word. Still also automation trouble here in Logic 9. Parameters don't show up in the automation views. Tried changing the IDs as told below, but to no avail.. Any hint, Trevor? Thanks anyway for this supercool instrument!

Hi Daniel, QuNexus is a tricky controller... so far I haven't had any problems with any brand but just make sure the two AB switches are off so you get a normal pitch tracking. If the problem persists, you might wanna check out the Nexus settings.

Really loving this right now. However, I can't get the pitch to track my keyboard (QuNexus), even with the switch on. Any advice?

All I did was update the text file, that's why its still in version 1.0 I'm glad you mention that, at least you guys came across it. Thanks for the words! Keep enjoying

Even if there hasn't been updated I'm glad this somehow got bumped, else I wouldn't have seen this so soon. But I would like to know the same as Phil. And a lot thanks for sharing this amazing work!

I am a bit confused as the version still seems to be the same - has there actually been an update?

By the way, thank you all for enjoying this. Jesse and I are working on a Buchla emulation now ;)

Albert, the artifacts you're experiencing with it are due to the low resolution knobs on the controller, however you might wanna try mapping it out to another midi devices with higher resolution like Kore or Doepfer. Dan, try changing the Automation ID on the Connect Tab of each knob. In case you want map the X/Y, you gotta right click on the right edge of the ribbon, right between the sensor and the holding piece.

Absolutely loving this! However I can't get the controls to appear in Ableton Live 9 when using the midi configure. It works with library ensembles. Any thoughts?

Love this Reaktor file. . . so very special. However, I've experienced a bit of problems with zippering artifacts. Does it work with better resolution when I use the mouse to manipulate the knobs? Because it seems so. I get the zippering when using my 128 step resolution knobs mapped from my Virus TI. Other then that, bloody brilliant. This is sooo valuable. Cheers,

I do not know the original hardware but this synth is excellent for sound effects such as background sci-fi or dark movie style with long, evolving structures. Great job!
