Thanks for stepping in!
I’ve tried to force the encoder into some better behaviour but it’s a very stubborn little fellow; so no, I couldn’t fix this issue.
I changed the encoder and the wires, checked the position of the flatcables (which was correct from the beginning thanks to the very clear step-by-step instructions), and like I said the problem moved along with the default encoder so I guess it’s bad luck.
I’m very relieved to see it’s not a problem on the Zynthscreen, that would have been much worse.
So yes I would be very happy if you would send me a new (or 2!) encoder
Furthermore I think the Zynthian is absolutely fabulous; I was searching for Thor in a box well, you overdid that part ! I’ve connected the Zynthian directly to the Octatrack (audio only for the time being) and so I can handle my end of the band setup with a dawless solution from now on. (rythm, keys, guitar, vocals).
I have already recorded over 30 ‘ideas’ with the very handy internal audio recorder, I love playing around looking for THE sound, and the journey in the Zynthian is very inspiring to me.
It also works PERFECTLY with my Korg Nanokey 2 keyboard.
I will try to see the MOD (:8888) page tomorrow that looks very cool, too.
But above all, ofcourse, I would like to praise the SOUND ! I only use more or less high-end stuff (Effectrode compressors and pedals , boutique self built tube amps, US Fenders from the '50 and '60, HK amps and so on) so I need me keys to be on the same level. Well maybe the DAC Pro HIFIBerry is even a bit over the required quality level)…I will post some more photographs too, if you want to, you need all the press you can get on this project.
Next step : Trying to learn some more about the whole configuration bit, integrating of other engines and your step-sequencer ofcourse, as soon as you guys agree on the final outlines.
Thanks once more for proposing me to send me a new encoder,
Have a nice weekend,
