    To be clear....you now have a 24-note pool to use however you like.

    You can load up to 64 wav files per pad or 80 per preset - whichever comes first.

    Oh no man, now you're really confusing me here. Steve confirmed above that there is a pool of 64 opposed to the 4 voices per pad on previous versions. Can someone confirm the actual voice polyphony count?

    this is true! (24 note pool)

    absent a voice stealing algorithm, a per pad limitation definitely makes sense

    1010music would be able to firmly confirm but from my understanding, the total 64 voices become a commun pool of voices.

    You have a pool of 64 voices shared between all pads as opposed to the previous 4 per pad before.
    oh wow, the official page still talks about 16 voice, are you sure its 64?

    started a topic Polyphony question

    Polyphony question

    One of the Firmware updates mention something about voices. Does that mean that maximum polyphony is now more flexible (global voice stealing)? Meaning that you can trigger more than 4 samples at the same time on one pad if the others are not in use ?

    what's the maximal polyphony of the blackbox?

    thanks
Working...
