How to switch Variation Effect on and off while playing a performance

Unread post by bigfootjim » Thu Feb 13, 2020 8:23 pm

Hi!
I am trying to figure out how to switch the Variation Effect I am using ( Chorus ) on and off during a performance. I want it off for the verse and on for the Chorus. Can anyone tell me the best way to do this without having to create a separate performance patch? Thanks!

There are several ways to do it, super knob, using multiple different parts with and without the variation effect etc. I think the simplest and most useful way is to use the scenes:
  • Select the scene tab on the touch screen from the performance main screen.
  • Make sure the "Mixing1 and Mixing2" button is switched on in the scene screen. That means a scene will store the variation send settings.
  • Press Shift + Scene 1 to store the first scene.
  • Go to the variation send for the parts that you want to be affected. Adjust them to your liking (maybe some still should have it or others should have a little?).
  • Then press Shift + Scene 2 to store the second scene.
Now you can switch between the two scenes and the variation send will be changed. I think that's exactly what scenes are made for.
