Re: How to sidechain only kick in a drum arpeggio on bass with modx?

No, not possible. Kicks usually need their own part/channel to be a lone sidechain trigger. Instead, duplicate the part: In the first part, go to the drum editor and mute everything except the kick. In the duplicated part, just mute the kick. Then add a compressor to the second part and choose the o...

Re: Connect for Modx ?

Yes, Montage/MODX Connect definitely works also as standalone. Read the last sentence:

Re: MODX versus Roland Fantom?

Montage/MODX let you record audio performances from the final mix out but I suspect the Fantom doesn't. Is that correct? This is useful in unexpected ways - for example, in my recording chain posted above. Montage/MODX's multiband and VCM compressors sound very nice - except they took out the gain r...

Re: MODX versus Roland Fantom?

Which leads me to ask again. With all this awesome capability, I see none- few musicians making AND recording original material using Montage or MODX. I have searched and looked. I was , in particular looking for originals recordings from MODX owners. That is why I buy this stuff. To record origina...

Re: Can you mute one drum sound (e.g. snare) with an Assign key?

Yes, drum parts have some weird limitations at times. Some random ideas off the top of my head: 1. If you don't need both fx inserts at the same time (whether parallel or serial), then set the routing to parallel and send all the drums you want to mute to the 2nd effect and assign a controller to th...

Re: MODX versus Roland Fantom?

Something else to consider: only 1 insert effect (MFX) per part (tone) on the Fantom would be pretty irritating. Having dual insert FX is a must for me.

Re: MODX versus Roland Fantom?

AFAIK the Fantom doesn't allow user multi-samples, Supernatural Acoustic and SRX sounds are now gone and patch changing doesn't work smoothly compared to Yamaha's SSS.

Re: MODX and Roli Seaboard

The MODX isn't a USB host unfortunately. Would have been a really interesting feature but no doubt would have also bumped the price beyond the desired price point. Well, not in the sense that the software doesn't allow one to use an external USB midi controller, but MODX/Montage are definitely acti...

Re: Error Message: Please reboot to maintain internal memory

FWIW When Montage/MODX are set to power off automatically, they won't do so if you've edited the current patch and haven't yet saved it.

Re: Error Message: Please reboot to maintain internal memory

This warning message is actually documented on page 64 of the MODX owner's manual. Nothing to panic about. I wonder if this has anything to do with maintaining Montage/MODX's MontaVista Linux installation which doesn't have a proper shutdown routine. This might be necessary to prevent file corruptio...
