NuEVI wireless playing SE-02 - new Gate Hold feature - Mark Steiner

Published on Aug 12, 2018 Mark Steiner

"Playing the SE-02 wirelessly and testing out new beta of Gate Hold mode on the NuEVI using standard resolution midi. It's the smoothest I have ever felt playing an analog unit via standard midi with breath control (with no analog slew on the end). So exploring ways to bring these types of tones in a more fluid way to others. This also smoothens any synth voice that doesn't need the attack tracked for effects or attack sound (like the bow attack of a violin).

You can do this on other wind synths manually by setting zero as though you are very slightly blowing when you really are not. This has been confirmed on the standard Steiner Midi EVI by Don Cagen with an Oberheim Xpander.

But you could also with EWI's that allow zero threshold changes (or those that don't if you ask secret agent, Ingo how).

As this doesn't work for all instruments, it's likely more for studio than live, which is why Johan has placed this feature easily switchable in the NuEVI. This approach was Johan's idea in the first place and it's truly amazing.

Also this video shows how to get smoother LFO by using XMod on the SE-02.

For NuEVI info and wait list:

Once the update for the NuEVI is released, to turn on Gate Hold, hold the EVI like a doorknob, specifically touching the bottom 3 octave rollers and the canister button, and then tapping the pitch bend up sensor. To turn off... same except tap the pitch bend down sensor.

Some synths can do this, but it's absolutely smoother setting it up on the controller side instead of the synth or sound source side. At least to a large extent due to the fact that the controller will always send note changes via midi instantly, whether you are blowing yet or not."
