Re: [Mac] Mandala V2.0 only recognised as Midi Device

Your computer needs to recognize it as MandalaDrum####, not MIDI Device. Quit the Virtual Brain and/or V2 Converter and then reconnect your pad. If it still comes up 'MIDI Device' in Audio MIDI Setup then choose New Configuration under 'Configuration' in Audio MIDI Setup. If that doesn't do it then ...

Re: How do I use my Mandala V1 brain with logic 9?

I've done this with my Mandala mk2.9. Hit your pad when Logic needs to learn the controller and then adjust the Value Change field in Logic to keep only the MIDI data from the controller you want.

Re: problem getting audio into my monitors.

If you follow the setup steps in the Mandala manual (downloadable from the Mandala site) for the audio driver page you'll probably get it going pretty quick. The Test Tone button is the key to knowing when you are set up properly.

Re: Where Can I Download Black Beauty?

Adjust the velocity curves for the pad zones under the SHAPE tabs in the zone dashboards of the VB software. Sounds like you want your curves to be more exponential. You can even draw your own curves from scratch and save them on the TOOLS page if you want. If you're controlling other software it wi...

Re: Midi output scales to other software

The v2.0 Mandala used to output the notes of the scales directly but the mk2.9 outputs just the zone notes and the scale notes are generated within the Virtual Brain software.

Re: Battery 3 presets

Just 'Save' the preset after you autosearch for the samples (patch only, not patch+samples) and from then on the samples for that preset will be autolocated when you load it.

Re: low velocities not detected by synapse

You are most likely triggering the samples every time you use your pedals but you are just not hearing them because either: - The waveforms of the sample files themselves are low amplitude (or far from normalized) - You have some kind of Amplitude Envelope going in Battery - The fact that samples ar...
