Tune 808?

Post by CHARDI8520 » Sat May 02, 2009 11:08 pm

Is it possbile to tune the 808 in Nepheton to a specific frequency so that it matches the key of an existing song?

Thank you!!!!

I know that the cowbell sounds like a c# quintet, and sometimes I tune it on hearing purely, The cowbell reaches down an octave but only 5 tones upwards.

But for the rest I don't really think the other instruments are worth tuning because their tone is too diffused. Maybe the crash cymbal, it's also a c# tone height you hear inthere but the tonal timbre isn't such a defining way that it would a dissonace with your music.

The claves sounds as if it's a E flat, and can be tuned only one tone lower and one tone higher. And also but you need to do it purely on your ears if you want

We'll take it into the consideration to make few sounds tunable. At this moment I cannot promise anything. We could arrange it as separate midi channels, where each of midi channels would trigger single sound with a note controlling the pitch - of course this would work only in external mode.
