I got my Daisy ‘Petal’ recently, and on my first day, already got up and running with a nice little stutter-cutter(<-my word for it: you punch in/out for short-recorded-loops of live-input), and some extra stuff for bitcrushing, lopass, cut-duration, pitch-shift, etc…
so i’m excited! got a few questions as i round the finish on this…
-is there any other way to utilize the ‘encoder’ knob on the Petal, other than for program selection(with multiple gen~ patches in the Oopsy integration)? i wonder even if there’s ways to program the lights(i notice they’re colored LEDs on first power-up… wondering how to play more with that… if maybe there’s a way within gen~, or if i’d have to move more to C++/DaisySP, or if any of that particular encoder is even accessible at all for more open-ended purposes)?
-along the lines of that same question, i see 8 LEDs around the encoder, does that mean we can have up to 8 programs loaded on one Petal? (i read somewhere it was 5, but having trouble finding it now)… with multiple gen~ patches in one Oopsy integration, what’s the maximum allowed?
-is there a special repo or place to share our finished gen~ patches? (or is it just in the other/outer “Projects and Examples” forum category?)
-any danger to flashing/reflashing the Daisy Seed constantly as i’m frequently debugging and iterating? (should i be more conservative with how often i push changes to the Daisy or would that just be too paranoid?)
-could i connect an audio signal to control via the ‘Expression Pedal’(‘EXP’) input? (i have a Moog EP3 which is probably perfect for this, but just asking about more esoteric options - to use it more like a CV input but possibly via an aux-out on my audio I/O… any idea of allowable voltage/current?)
-i guess i can hear that it’s automatic, but just want to make sure: when plugging a single mono input through the “IN L (MONO)” jack of the Petal, is there any way to detect what inputs are connected and rework everything internally by our own code(through gen~ or even C++), or is it always automatically split to stereo from there if nothing else is connected to the “IN R” jack too?
Thanks in advance for your patience with my nooby questions, and for any help anyone can provide. Looking forward to sharing this weird thingy i made with all of you here soon
