Anyone using Arturia CS80 synth in Live?

Post by tw1nstates » Wed Sep 23, 2009 3:20 pm

Hello all,

I am a bit flummoxed here.

I am using Arturia's cs80 synth in Live, all is well however I can't seem to record automation for the brilliance control (like master filter).

It lets me move it fine and changes the sound however doesn't record the changes.

So, i also tried loading it in Kore and mapping to one of the controllers. Same deal. No automation recorded. Wierd. . .

Other parameters can be recorded. . .

If anyone has any ideas I would be grateful!
I slipped into a daze, whilst I was there I heard the most startling music, it was at once familiar and alien, reassuring and unsettling.

yeah it's a problem with the cs80, some of the parameters just can't be automated. it's really annoying i know! i'd love to be able to automate the ribbon strip especially

the only way to get around it is to record it live as an audio track... :/

That is one annoying thing about the Arturia synths. Most of them all have unexposed parameters.

If I remember correctly though that control can be midi learned. After that you can draw the automation in the clip using the midi cc you assigned to it. Best work around I can think of short of recording the audio as zenvision stated.

yes, bad design!

I thought i had left the manuals at my old place however a quick search last night discovered the CS80 one a nd lo and behold the brilliance know was the one they were talking about automating using the system that fragmented described (thanks for that! . ).

Still haven't worked out how to use it in Kore, I know that the kore controller now acts as a midi controller so must look into that as well.

Thanks All
