Q: There seems to be a delay when I send MIDI from my DAW and playback.
A: This is a common problem with many DAWs and external MIDI devices, you need to account for this by using a negative delay on the MIDI tracks that are sending to external devices, so that they play slightly ahead of the rest of the tracks to account for this.
To measure the delay time first create a MIDI track with pattern of a simple 4 beats per bar, then use this to trigger a percussive hard type sound on your external synth. Route the sound back into your DAW and then record the incoming signal. After recording one or two bars, then zoom into the audio and use the grid to measure the delay in ms to see what the delay time is between the original MIDI notes and the audio you have recorded.
This is the delay you should set for those MIDI channels sending to your iOS device.
Q: Sound output is chopped or stuttering.
A: this happens when the processor load on the iPad is too high.
It may be caused by too many audio apps running in background, and also on the number of voices WaveMapper wants to play. So please reduce the number of voices on the setup page, and close as many apps as possible. To do so, double tap the home button, then tab and hold each audio producing app you do not need, until the red circle with a minus sign appears. tap on that minus sign.
Q: How many voices should I expect?
A: This varies from unit to unit and also what background apps you have running at the same time. It also depends on the sound used – sounds with shorter release times will allow the audio engine in the iPad to give more voices without loss of sound or stuttering.
We have achieved one of the best sounding Apps on the market as well as higher voice performance than other apps, but as always is the case, there will be limitations in the iOS environment.
Q: Its hard to get certain parameter values when editing
A: To fine tune parameter, move the finger to the right – then you can do very fine adjustments.
Q: I am getting no sound from WaveMapper.
A: Make sure the KEYS switch is not set to Extern.
If running in background WaveMapper AUDIO MIX mode has to be On.
Q: What is the best way to do analysis
A: First load the Test Program with the corresponding button.
Then select your sound file, either by audio paste or filesharing.
This will do the TCS analysis. You can text the result directly with the keypad.
After adjusting the parameters to your likes, save the new resource with the “Save TCS” button.
Now you can use this resource in your programs by selecting it on the oscillator page.
If you want to do a Wavetable transformation, do so by “MAke WT”.
If you want to save the result, do “Save WT”
You can make the WT transfer as well as the splitting on any existing resource at a later time, by first selecting the resource into oscillator 1, then use the “Expanding” function on the Analyse page.
