In setting up morph groups I noticed that when you assign a morph group to a knob and define the morph ranges for the parameters, only the morph knob turns when you turn the external knob...and the parameters themselves don't. Is this normal?

I had this quite excellent Morph and Mindy joke.. but then I forgot it. I`ll better open a bottle of wine now.

Shocked

When you say "the parameters themselves don't", you mean the virtual knob for the parameter does not move, but the parameter value does change according to the morph range, right? So for example, you assign a filter cutoff knob to a morph group and set the morph range for the cutoff knob, and when you turn the morph knob the filter cutoff does sweep, but the image of the cutoff knob on the screen does not move? Yes, this is normal.

When you assign on-screen knobs or switches directly to a front panel knob on the synth, the on-screen image will move. When you assign an on-screen knob or switch to a morph group, the on-screen image will not move (but the morph colors on the parameter indicate the overall morph range).

Thanks Dave.....I guess that if all those parameters did move when you turned a morph assigned knob, you'd just have too much going on! I bet if Clavia were to re-write and update the program this could be implemented. Maybe a request if someone ever re-does the X Beta!

Most of the reason for this is that all of the screen updates going from the synth to the computer have to go over MIDI, which is a pretty slow way to do it (The original NM was released before USB could be used).

You may notice that when you turn a real knob on the synth, the movement of the corresponding knob on the screen is a little slow and jerky. Also when you set an LFO to a very fast rate the virtual LED indicator on the LFO module on the screen does not flash accurately. But the important thing is that the sound responds very accurately and smoothly to any changes you make in the Editor or any knob turns on the synth, so it's not a big deal if the images are a little flaky due to MIDI limitations.
