  • Gate+CV Polyphony

    For future reference, could this be made more clear in the manual? I was really excited about this feature and I'm pretty bummed that it's not available. Polyphonic sample playback is pretty rare and was basically the sole reason I grabbed Bitbox Micro over anything else.

    Is there any hope to see this in a future software update? The poly playback is already there, as is the ability to trigger samples via CV and gate. I'd be 100% happy if it were even just trigger-only, play the full length of the sample per trig, with no slides or repitches or anything. Mutable Rings has a similar way to turn a single v/o sequence into polyphony.

    This is a great topic for the wish list thread. That is where we look first when making these decisions. (I will move this to the micro wishlist thread)

      Wait, can't we just copy/paste something into new cells, set those to be monophonic and respond to pitch CV?

        that will work if you split your incoming gate signal as the gate to pad connection is 1:1

      After seeing the Bitbox being played polyphonically through MIDI, I was also expecting CV/gate sample playback to have a polyphonic option. I read the whole manual then found @indoninjah's thread which answers my question. Love the Bitbox so far, but I'm also super bummed that this isn't possible as it seems the module has the capacity for it.

      What I was hoping for was polyphony a-la Rings, ie being able to set the sample to "Trigger" and let the notes rings out over one another. There could be a setting for selecting the maximum number of voices available. CV over pitch would only affect the "next" voice, enabling chords to be built up.

      This would be such a killer feature, I hope you consider it for future firmware revisions!
