there are three pages, mix, play, and edit. navigate with encoder 1. hold key 1 for ALT.
key 2 = mute L
key 3 = mute R
enc 2 = vol L
enc 3 = vol R
ALT + enc 2 = pan L
ALT + enc 3 = pan R
key 2 = flip L
key 3 = flip R
ALT + key 2 = skip L
ALT + key 2 = skip R
enc 2 = tape speed L
enc 3 = tape speed R
ALT + enc 2 = feedback L
ALT + enc 3 = feedback R
nb: tape speed behavior by default is free; however, it can be quantized to many different scales via the parameters menu.skip behavior by default is a loop reset; however, it can be configured to jump to random positions via the parameters menu.
key 2 = rec L on/off
key 3 = rec R on/off
ALT + key 2 = clear buffer L
ALT + key 3 = clear buffer R
enc 2 = left loop start
enc 3 = right loop start
ALT + enc 2 = left loop end
ALT + enc 3 = right loop end
nb: turning rec L/R off will hold the buffer, allowing use as a looper.
nb: on all pages, alt + enc 1 toggles between fine and coarse parameter adjustments. turn enc 1 right for fine, left for coarse.
L/R loops are laid out identically.
touch a key inside the “loop position” area to jump to that point in the loop.
holding the grid alt button and touching one of the speed up/down buttons will return speed to 1.
holding the grid alt button and turning enc 2/3 will “slide” your L/R loops around the buffer.
while holding an lfo on button you can edit lfo parameters with the norns encoders and keys:
enc 1: lfo speed/frequency
enc 2: lfo depth
enc 3: lfo offset
key 2/3: set lfo shape
to “patch” an lfo:
hold an lfo on button
adjust lfo settings
touch a control
holding the grid alt button and pressing in the lfo section will “un-patch” the lfo.
speed scales are collections of 6 speeds that are playable via the grid. adding your own “tunings” is easy.
connect norns to wifi and launch maiden
open the dust/code/otis/lib folder
open the file named spds.lua
to add your custom scale, simply:
add the scale name to the spds.names table. (it’s likely best to avoid spaces and special characters)
add a spds.YourNameGoesHere table containing six numbers 0-4.
that’s it! you’re a musical hacker person now!
vol - loop volume
speed - playback and recording speed
speed slew - the time it takes for your speed to “settle” at its destination speed.
loop start - start of your loop in seconds
loop end - end of your loop in seconds
feedback - how much of your overwritten material should stick around? 1 is all, 0 is none.
rec - enable/disable recording
pan - stereo posistion
pan slew - time it takes for your pan position to “settle” at its destination position.
saturation - tape style saturation amount
crossover - crossover frequency for the effect filters
noise - tape hiss amount
skip controls - whether skip jumps back to the start of your loop, or to a random position
speed scale - set your speed scale/quantizing
audio routing - set the signal flow. default is input + softcut -> engine.
