Problem with Nite-nite Bowls Patch?

Post  JPB on Sat Dec 13, 2008 1:49 pm

I just noticed that in the 'Nite-nite Bells' patch, while it uses the 'Waterbowls' and 'Tibetan Bowl Thin ^' sound sources, the latter is turned off.

Can anyone else confirm this?

BTW - What does the ^ character signify in sound sources?

Confirmed.

I've seen the ^ symbol used to denote modwheel.

Kind regards.

Thanks for that.

No big deal, but that patch does sound good with the second source enabled. Just didn't want anyone to miss it.

why should he?
a muted layer is not uncommon and definetly not considered to be a bug.
Havent really searched for it but i am sure there are more patches where one layer is muted to make the patch usable for people thatrun a slower computer.

Hans:

What you are saying doesn't make sense to me. If there is no need for a second sound source to be included in a patch, then why have it in there in the first place? If that source is muted, then it has absolutely no sonic effect on what the patch sounds like. There are many patches in the Omni library that use only a single source. To arbitrarily include a second source, and then mute it, would make no sense.

BTW - I have been going through the entire patch list alphabetically (currently in the Rís) and this is the first instance that I have noticed.

And when listening to the second source enabled, the patch makes sense. I can only conclude that the original creator of the patch intended that both sources be a part of the sound but that somehow the second part got inadvertantly muted.

Thanks.

At first I didn't care much about the Nite-nite patch.
But you guys inspired me to turn on layer B - gee what a difference
It is the most gorgeous bell patch I have heard in a while Smile

Looking at the notes it seems that Layer B was really muted accidentally so your point is valid.
But since there is no function to clear a layer i wouldnt be surprised to find more patches that have muted layers for the sake of CPU or just because the designers changed their mind.
At least that is the case with some of my personal ones.

As you said before-no biggie!
