nanoloop mono manual (preliminary)


R plays square waves either raw (default) or with a filter applied. It has two oscillators that can be detuned in 1/16 semitone (A+◄/►) and semitone (A + ▲/▼) steps. When playing arpeggio (START), it is monophonic.

C plays clicks with a resonant low-pass filter. The cutoff frequency = pitch does not go as high as in the other channels and does not correspond to musical notes.

c

B + ▲/▼

N can play noise or square waves either raw (default) or with a filter applied. The analog binary noise source (thermal noise from an amplifier) is mixed with an oscillator through a flip-flop. The oscillator frequency affects the noise character. The frequency is set in the pitch section and octave-wise in the filter section (B+◄/►). There are two modulation modes, A+▲ selects the more tonal one and A+▼ (default) the more noisy one.
In tone mode (START in the pitch section), this channel acts like the R channel.

"x" = toggle modes

"/" = different paramters in different modes



Known issues

Master Sync

Setting the sync mode back to master (START) after it has been set to slave (A+B) doesn't work and will hang. This has been fixed with version 1.0.1.

Noise filter range

The n-channel's'filter cutoff control does not cover the full range. The maximum cutoff frequency can only be reached by adding a filter envelope (set lfo-mode to filter with A+▲, add cutoff with B+▲).


Most other functions are the same as in nanoloop 1.7
