    you're welcome. I really enjoy it as it is now, but like you say, taking full advantage of the jacks would be ideal. I haven't looked at the bluebox either, but I feel like later there will be features ported from there to the other products which is exciting! will see what happens

    jpablo91 great to know about 1/2 having delay and verb, big thanks!

    from reading some of the feature requests, sounds like the lack of routing is a common thread, the 'outputs' tab on micro feels like a holding statement at the moment.

    bitbox having some mixing functionality sounds good also, have not looked at 1010's mixer, but maybe they already have the code.

    Anyways, don't need it to do everything, but I like options, and dislike wasted jacks! Every jack used in every patch, that's the goal right?

    Yes, the main out (7/8) is still a sum of all the outputs, so you'll get all the clicks and sounds from cv samples, so it would left you with only 4 outs for mod if you want to use it that way. The reverb and delay are only applied at the outputs 1/2 and the main (7/8).

    I usually use it like this:
    1/2 main output
    3/4 for sending to other effects
    5/6. For modulation
    7/8 nothing (which is sad to waste this)

    It would be awesome if in future updates it allows you to select what to send to the main output 7/8 that way you could mix everything internally take more advantage of the multiple outputs. Imagine having two different mono signals for inputs 1 and 2 and mixing it inside the bitbox plus mixing all the sounds coming from it, it would make it even more powerful

    Am getting to know the micro, am particularly interested in the idea of self patching it; have just updated firmware to 1.0.12, so need to revisit to see if anything is changed re these...
    • It doesn't seem possible to not send a signal to the main outs
    • if you're using cv signals, you get dc clicks on main out
    • using say 5/6 as your main out means you only really have 4 'mod' outputs
    • i can't figure out adding effects to 5/6, so no reverb.
    It's pretty great though, slice up a cv sequence and randomise the slices for pseudo s&h, already copying a pre-recorded LFO to new patches, adding internal vibrato to granulated kalimba is delightful.

    Thanks Steve, I just got a bitbox micro on reverb and I'm excited for it to arrive!

    Yes. You can record CV signals and playback like any other audio signal. The mk2 has 4 total outputs. The micro has 8. So you could be creative in how you set this up but it is possible.

    Self patching the Bitbox

    I'm a Blackbox user and recently got into modular. I am considering getting a bitbox and I am just curious if its possible to do some self patching, i.e. send a CV sample via one of the outs and then put it back to the bitbox and use it as a modulation source, is this possible?
Working...
