On the numa I just leave it off because I feel stuck there if it's on, there is no simple way out, unless you are on the last option, which requires multiple button hits to get to in the first place.

The MIDI implementation of of the NC2X is pretty thorough. There are probably MIDI commands you could send to switch the vibrato and percussion on and off, which you would be able to do from a screen on your smartphone with a variety of apps. Just velcro the phone down to the empty panel space (there is enough for a phone) and you've kind of extended the control surface with whatever other custom buttons you'd like. Or a NanoKontrol could give you hard buttons, but you'd still need the phone or some other piece to get the NK's USB MIDI into the NC2X.

For what it's worth here is a response from Studiologic regarding the sample memory issue...

Quote
Hi Derek,

as we announced in different moments, half of the memory is dedicated to the internal Factory Sounds, while the second half will be used (very soon) to install new Sounds that can be downloaded from our Site, and applied to the NC2x with a new Sofware app called NC2x Manager, published soon...

Let me know, thanks for your kind interest and best regards !

New sounds would have to go into one of the 8 sound banks (Piano, EP, Keys, Bass/Guitar, Organ, Synth, Orchestra, Other). I hope their "NC2x Manager" lets you re-arrange the order sounds appear in in those categories, and even let you move sounds to other categories. I'd like those buttons to bring me to my 8 favorite sounds, and that would require moving an EP to a different category since I want a Rhodes button and a Wurli button.

In the original Numa Compact, I had wished the 10 sound bank buttons could be repurposed as a number pad. Instead, they reduced them from 10 to 8! I'd still like to see a number pad mode, where the buttons represented numbers 1 through 8. While you couldn't recall all 99 user programs that way, you'd at least have shortcuts to 11 through 18, 21 through 28, 31 through 38, etc., which would be very useful. You'd only have to resort to the scroll wheel to pick user programs with a 9 or 0 in them.

Isn't that the biggest open-ended thing you would expect StudioLogic to say?! I wouldn't hold my breath given the content/history in this thread.

Has anyone discovered how to change the brightness of the display?

It's fine for me in daylight, not distracting. In darker settings it can be bright to my eyes, I just tape over it now, and I can make a lens, but it would be nice to adjust it...

These kinds of rollouts are frustrating. The Digitakt is in the same boat. Folks have waited for overbridge way past what was promised. The Novation Circuit is in the opposite boat. They promised nothing and have delivered 8 epic updates noone expected, though it has taken a good while.

Here's a thought: Since the NC2x gererously provides 99 program presets, use 2 ADJACENT programs identical one to the other, one with vibrato OFF and its neighbor with vibrato ON, and rotate the program selector knob back and forth between the 2 to activate or deactivate your favorite vibrato / chorus sound.

Good thought, except the Numa does not have seamless sound switching (patch remain) between programs, so you still would not be able to switch the effect in and out as you played, since any held notes would cut off when you made the switch.

Now that the Numa Compact 2X has been out for a while, would anyone care to compare its synth quality to the Studio Sledge?

I can't compare sound quality to the Sledge, but the functionality is extremely minimal by comparison. e.g.

* One oscillator vs. three

* One filter mode (2-pole low pass) vs. six modes (2-pole and 4-pole low pass, band pass, high pass)

* Two LFOs with fixed waveforms and destinations vs. three LFOs with selectable waveforms and destinations

* 3-stage filter envelope and 2-stage amp envelope vs. 4 stages for each

* no monophonic mode, no portamento

OK, OK, it's not a reinvention of the wheel.

I thought it would be nice to have a more grippy surface for the small control sticks, which are a bit slippery; but seem sturdy enough, just not quite there in usabilty.

So I ordered 2 items to try, and this one is just PERFECT:

Name of Product:

Jocon SF9000 PVC Flexible Vinyl Round End Caps Shelf Organizer Tip Caps Wire Thread Protector Cover (Inner Dia 5mm, Black)

Probably used in dishwashers or electronics. Or, I suppose, on Shelf Organizer Tip Caps (DOH!).

Link for product:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071HBB9HR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I attached a photo, hope it works, this is my first try.


IT FITS LIKE A GLOVE. I love it. When i slipped the covers on, there was a click: Either I broke the control (will let you know, no time to play this morning); or it has a push-click switch which to my knowledge is not activated in the current Numa C2x iteration.

For ~ $6.99 (WITH 98 spares), a perfect accessory. Maybe it will make you like the control of the STICKS better !

Have no fear. The sticks are fine - there definitely is a CLICK when you depress the stick while it is centered. The excursion is ~ 1/2 to 2/3 as much as the main control knob (shall we call it the "INFRA-KNOB" - in contrast to the Yamaha Montage SUPER KNOB ?) and seems to have potential use as a switching device, much like many musical / electronic multi-function controls.

Meanwhile, the vinyl sleeves look good; feel very good; and to me improve the function and reliability of the controller sticks.
