ForumsHardware ← Z axis odd behaviour

I'll do my best to describe this!

I recently started using the latest soundplane client since updating my mac to sierra and have noticed something that I can't figure out. In the newer Soundplane versions, The z axis seems to be reacting differently where it's as though there is a max limit to the Z output. I've opened older versions and confirmed that this behaviour changed on Soundplane 1.3.

For example in a Kaivo patch, I have the z axis controlling the rate of the granulator with the Dial turned all the way up. In 1.2 or earlier, Applying pressure to the z axis would modulate the Granulator rate from 1.0 to 880 (the max amount), but when applying the same amount of pressure to the z axis in version 1.3 and onward, the rate can only be modulated about 10% of the way up from 1.0 to around 3.5. Even if I push down very hard, the z axis output seems to be capped at this amount. It doesn't seem to be an issue with the z shape and z curve dials, as they don't affect the max output.

I hope this makes sense to someone! I'm very likely missing something simple but I can't figure it out and it's KILLING ME

It is limited to 1.0 currently. I believe I was not doing this before. It seemed to make sense to limit it to the [0. - 1.] range. But if this is not enough practically for some desirable patches--- are you saying you have the attenuverter turned to maximum modulation?---then I could take away the limiting or make it an option.

Ah ok

Yes attenuator is at maximum modulation. That would be amazing if there is an option to take away the limiting! The results you can quickly achieve with that full x axis range is so amazing to me. I've currently reverted back to the early versions just to be able to use certain patches in this way, but it's obviously less ideal as I don't get access to any of the changes from the newer clients..

Regardless, thanks for looking into it
