We are currently working on a firmware update for Manther! Stay tuned!
1. NO SOUND
It’s very likely that slider for the VCA is set to zero (all the way down) and no sound is passing through the VCA.
Try this: press SHIFT+CLEAR to quickly get to a default setting. Now play a couple of staccato notes on the Manther “keyboard”. Now bring up the Release slider on the ENV. Now bring up the Attack slider on the ENV a little. You can hear how the env opens and closes the VCA. Now bring up the VCA a little and play the “keyboard”- you’ll hear that the envelope will fully open the VCA to its loudest, then drop back to the VCA setting. If you bring the VCA all the way up you will bypass the envelope, and the sound will not be attenuated at all.
2. MANTHER IS SLOW TO RESPOND
If any Manther controls are slow to respond, make certain the MORPH control is all the way off (max ccw).
3. NOT ALL SLIDER LEDS ARE LIT
When a slider LED is lit, that means sequence automation is recorded.
When you first power up the Manther, preset A01 is loaded. This is a sequence with automation on some of the controls, therefore not all of the slider’s LEDs are lit.
The sequence needs to be playing to hear its automation. The slider automation is represented in the display.
Pressing SHIFT+CLEAR will set the Manther to default and all slider LEDs will turn off.
4. TUNING WON’T CALIBRATE IF VOLTAGE IS PRESENT AT VCO CV IN
Unplug any incoming CV from this jack during startup in order to calibrate correctly.
