Clock settings

Hermod can be the master, or can be slaved, thanks to its Midi/Host/Device/CV interface.

 INTERNAL  Hermod will use it internal clock.
 MIDI/HOST/DEVICE  Hermod will be slaved to the selected MIDI clock.
 CV A/B/C/D  Hermod will be synchronized to the selected CV inputs. If you do not configure a clock start CV port, press (start) to start/stop the sequencer.

 CV RESET   OFF   CV A   CV B   CV C   CV D 
Select one of the CV input to act as a reset clock, if none is selected, the PLAY button will reset the clock.

 CV CLOCK DIV   1/8   1/4   1/2   1/1 
Select the clock division of the incoming analog clock, usually modular clocks send quarter notes (¼)

 CV CLOCK OUT   OFF   GATE 1   ...   GATE 8 
Program one of the gate output to act as a global clocking output. If you wish to use more than one clock, you can use the gate signal of a pattern as a clock.

 CLOCK DIV OUT   1/8   1/4   1/2   1/1 
Select the speed of the output analog clock.

Note: When Hermod uses an analog clock source, the engine won’t “advance” by a certain amount of pulses on each tick, rather, the internal clock of Hermod’s will synchronize to the signal, this allows to multiply or divide the incoming clock, and also to still be able to use the swing effect when using analog clocking.

Midi channels

Configure MIDI channels of each track:

 ACTIVE TRACK   1   ...   16   OFF 
 TRACK 1   1   ...   16 
 TRACK 2   1   ...   16 
 TRACK 3   1   ...   16 
 TRACK 4   1   ...   16 
 TRACK 5   1   ...   16 
 TRACK 6   1   ...   16 
 TRACK 7   1   ...   16 
 TRACK 8   1   ...   16 

Note: The “active track” parameters set up a MIDI channel that will control the active track and the STEP learn note.

If you want to receive midi program changes (PC) to select the current Hermod played sequence (from 1 to 8), there is an option at the end of the list:

Midi Thru

Configure MIDI ports routing, handy when using hermod has a MIDI hub. For exemple, you can route all incoming messages in the MIDI port to the USB host port.


CV input settings

Configure the CV source of each track. Sources are:

 CV/Gate AB 
CV IN = input A, Gate IN = input B.
 CV/Gate CD  CV IN = input C, Gate IN = input D.
 Mod A/B/C/D  Modulation signal from input A/B/C/D for CV recording.

Same parameters as for  ACTIVE TRACK .

Note that when a CV signal is selected as an input, you will only be able to hear the incoming signal when the track is either empty, muted, or recording. Otherwise you’ll hear the recorded pattern.

Quantize the pitch of CV in notes to the nearest semitone.

 CV IN RANGE   -5V > +5V   0V > +5V 
Set the voltage range of the CV inputs.
