Dreadbox & Polyend Medusa fans, this is our place to meet! Any Medusa performances, tips, questions or just chit chat are welcome. If there are topics that emerge and grow, we can always spin them off into their own topics.
Encouraged by a question on Elektronauts, today I have been playing around with Medusa’s MIDI controller mode. I was surprised to discover that the DADSR faders can send different CC values when used in combination with the 1, 2, 3, Filter, AMP, and Loop buttons. Very cool!
EDIT: Oh, and the same is true with the 4 LFO knobs multiplied by the 5 LFOs! I’m tempted to pick a synth in Bitwig and map it to Medusa… just because (I don’t use soft synths much these days).
I used some of my Superbooth train trip time to go through all the episodes of this Medusa tutorial playlist by AutomaticGainsay:
It covers the synth side pretty well, but only taps on the surface of the pads (pun intended). I guess something happened, because there is an anticipation to cover the sequencer and the parameter locks, but those videos never came apparently. Still, the videos are casual, entertaining, and systematic.
