Regarding the MIDI clock sync trick (click track), although I suppose it applies to all midi control between Gadget and Audulus:
okay so as usual when you get stuck, sometimes walk away and come back and it works.
@robertsyrett is right. When you are sending midi out of Tapei, and you also have Audulus running, you can just select Audulus as the destination within the Gadget app. You select this when zoomed out in this screen.
Here’s a bunch of music that was made with Korg Gadget (drums and cheesy vocal samples) and Audulus with the ES-8 Modular set up. But then I proceeded to put all those gadget clips in Ableton Live and play them like a live set. I then spent about a week going over this live improvisation and adding field recordings from San Francisco and some analog synths with dub style effects.
I like the cheesy vocals . I also like the way the multiple beats at the start that sort of fight among themselves until a consistent tempo emerges. You always manage to come up with an interesting soundscape.
I am just working out the two device method for MIDI over bluetooth between Gadget and Audulus. So far I have been able to reproduce the setup I lost from the other day. Basically I can run Gadget on the iPad, then send MIDI over bluetooth through AUM from the iPad to an iPhone. The iPhone is running standalone Audulus. This is important because if Audulus has a host on the same device you get limited by only two audio outputs (I could be wrong, as it sounded like @robertsyrett may have not had this issue with the single device method). Here, the ES-8 is fully functional with Audulus.
Once more, I think what is exceptional here is the working setup. You should be able to hook an iPhone/iPad/MacBook up to your ES-8 and run Audulus. Then you sit on the couch with your other device iPad/iPhone/MacBook running Gadget. This device you have on the couch running gadget, can the be hooked up to a keyboard or drumpad or whatever controller. You end up with full remote daw control over your rack or any CV device. Wow.
note: It’s very sensitive to the order in which Gadget and Audulus are opened. You may have to shut them down and reopen them.
I finally got a chance to have a look at the general MIDI drum mapping. Which drums are you interested in specifically? Of course it’s possible to add additional outputs to the module but that also adds CPU load. I chose 8 outputs because that seemed a reasonable balance but I’m willing to add additional ones if you think it would be useful.
I got around to testing it out and I think this is nearly perfect!
The only suggestion I would make would be to add lights to the output to better track which outputs are active. Also I ran out of CPU around 5 drum voices, so I think a 4 channel version might reflect the practical limit.
I was surprised that you had CPU issues until I loaded this on my iPad Air 2 and discovered almost 20% CPU. I get spoiled on my Mac. I reworked the logic and managed to get it down to around 5%. I still added a 4 channel version. I moved the post to the Modules category here:
I was messing around a little while ago while taking a break from packing up my apartment for the movers coming Friday. I used @futureaztec addition of my Stagger Effect patch, and routed the output of Dublin Gadget our through this patch in AudioBus3, it sounds SOOOOO good. Check it out, see what you think of the effect with the other gadgets. I have been doing all this MIDI routing lately, I completely forgot that there is still the capacity to simply run audio through A3 effects
I am trying two things using the two device method above. I got stuck in the middle of a creative flow and had to stop.
I am trying to send 16th notes out of Taipei but it just shows up as one long gate in the General MIDI module. I imagine this is a setting in Gadget type problem.
Within Gagget, using advanced midi I was trying to send the notes out of Taipei on channel X, hoping to set the midi input channel x on a drum synth. I thought this might be a workaround to get Taipei to fire any other gadget module, but I have had no luck. Then I though it all else fails, maybe I can send MIDI out and then back into Gadget.
Indeed, you need to shorten the length of each note otherwise it becomes just one continuous high gate. You can either shorten each note manually, shorten one bar then copy paste, or use a 32nd note grid and use every note.
Can’t you duplicate the taipei track and then change the gadget type? This works for me.
in both answers you went over things I had thought of. Of course the reason why the gate stays high has to do with the gate length in Gadget. I just didn’t see a way to shade the gate a little so I didn’t have to
You asked why couldn’t I just
Well, I was hoping I could route the MIDI from another gadget and then use Taipei to send the midi out. This way I would have a drum machine interface for my eurorack, rather than only Taipei’s piano – like a blank “London” Gadget would be nice.
The first problem I’d really like to solve. The second one I imagine I’ll just have live with because if they need a special module to send midi out, the existing Gadgets probably can’t send midi between track channels.
@futureaztec it is possible that I am missing something important about what you are trying to do, but if I am not misunderstanding when you say:
Do you happen to have a MIDI pad controller that can be connected to Gadget? My BT4.0 Korg NanoKey Studio works great for this purpose, where I am using the pads of the controller to control Taipei, and that allows me to send drum beats to my hardware via NanoKey via Taipei without having to use the piano keys. Could this work for you too?
which is ultimately why I bought it to go with Gadget and Audulus on my iPad. I dunno what your price range is or if you would rather find a workaround, but I figured it might be helpful to point out the two best candidates (IMO) that I have found lately (one of which I happily own and the other I kinda wish I had cuz of the CV and MIDI DIN).
