Overview
Toggle  settings  and navigate the parameters to configure Hapax according to your needs.



Select the SAVE icon to store settings onto the SD card : they will be loaded at startup. Settings are global and are used by both projects proA and proB.
Sync input
 Clock source 
 INTERNAL   Hapax will use its internal clock (to be the synchronisation leader).
 MIDI IN A   Hapax will follow the midi A clock input.
 MIDI IN B   Hapax will follow the midi B clock input.
 USB HOST   Hapax will follow the usb host clock input.
 USB DEVICE   Hapax will follow the usb device clock input.
 CV IN 1   Hapax will follow an analog gate input, if connected on the CV input 1.
 CV IN 2   Hapax will follows an analog gate input, if connected on the CV input 2.

 Tip 
When using CV IN 1 or CV IN 2, Hapax is synchronized in a "step advance" (trigger) style. The setting CV CLOCK DIV let you choose how much ppqn the sequencer will run for one input trig. Please note that you also need to set the tempo thanks to the BPM popup, allowing a great flexibility. For example, if you want to sync Hapax with an external eurorack sequencer analog clock, running at 140bpm and sending a gate each 1/16, you need to set CV CLOCK DIV = 1/16 (4ppqn) and set Hapax BPM to 140.
 MIDI start/stop 
 --   Start and stop Hapax only with
play icon
and
stop icon
pads.
 ON (CLOCK INPUT)   Hapax receives & reacts to midi in start/stop messages (on same input as CLOCK SOURCE, that must be set to an external source).
 ON (ANY INPUT)   Hapax receives & reacts to midi in start/stop messages. All inputs can receive these messages (even when CLOCK SOURCE is set to internal).
 CV reset 
 CV IN 1   Use an analog gate on CV input 1 to reset the playback position.
 CV IN 2   Use an analog gate on CV input 2 to reset the playback position.
 CV run 
 CV IN 1   Use an analog gate on CV input 1 to start the playback. A high state will run the sequencer, a low state will stop & reset the playback.
 CV IN 2   Use an analog gate on CV input 2 to start the playback. A high state will run the sequencer, a low state will stop & reset the playback.
 CV clock div   1/96 = 24ppqn   ...   1/4 = 1ppqn 
When CLOCK SOURCE = CV IN, sets the speed of the expected incoming clock.
Sync output
 MIDI A/B/C/D, USB device/host 
 --   Do not transmit clock, start and stop messages to the selected midi output.
 CLOCK+TRANSPORT   Send midi clock + start/stop to the selected midi output.
 CLOCK   Send only midi clock to the selected midi output.
 TRANSPORT   Send only midi start/stop to the selected midi output.
 Clock on stop 
 --   Send midi clocks only when Hapax is playing.
 SEND   Always send midi clocks, even when hapax is stopped.
 Din sync   --   1/96   ...   1/1 
Set the DIN-sync analog clock pulse resolution (also known as Sync24, enable some vintage gear synchronization, like the TR-808) available on midi output C port. When a clock value is set, this DIN-sync port also send the start/stop message.
 Gate play   --   Gate 1   ...   Gate 4 
Selected gate output will be set to high level when Hapax is playing, and low level when Hapax is stopped.
 Gate reset   --   Gate 1   ...   Gate 4 
Selected gate output will be set to high level when Hapax is stopped, and low level when Hapax is playing.
 Gate clock   --   Gate 1   ...   Gate 4 
Selected gate will output a synchronisation clock, with a 50% duty cycle.
 Gate clock div   1/96 = 24ppqn   ...   1/1 = 1 bar 
When GATE CLOCK is enable: sets the speed/resolution of the clock.
Misc
 Metronome 
 MIDI   If metronome enabled in the rec settings, the metronome will be send thanks to MIDI notes messages.

Color palette
Under  Palette  you will be able to finetune custom RGB led colors. This is very usefull if you already have strong synestetic habits.

Toggle  settings  button and enter "Settings > MISC > Palette".

You will see the colour chart on the matrix pads (a RGB color is made of 3 elements: red, green and blue).

How to calibrate the 4 CV outputs
You can fine tune Hapax's 4 analog outputs in order to get a very precise note pitch:

Hold encoder ⑦ encoder while powering on Hapax: : "CALIBRATE VOICE 1, ADJUST -4V" must appears on the screen.

With the help of an accurate voltmeter and a patch cable, measure the CV1 output and rotate the menu encoder to adjust the output voltage (-4.00V).

Click the menu encoder to select and calibrate the next voltage (-3.00V). Repeat this operation for each CV values (-2.00V, -1.00V, 0.00V, 1.00V, 2.00V, 3.00V, 4.00V).

Once you calibrated all the voltages for CV1 output, the next CV output (CV2, CV3, and finally CV4) will be automatically selected. Ajust each voltages of this selected output, always with the help of your voltmeter and by rotating the menu encoder.

At the very end of this procedure, this calibration will be saved in the SD card. Then you can reboot Hapax and start playing with your CV outputs!


 Tip 
Hapax outputs -5.00V for a C0 note (midi note 0), -4.00V for a C1 note (midi note 12), -3.00V for a C2 note (midi note 24), ..., 0.00V for a C5 note (midi note 60), ..., 5.00V for a C10 note (midi note 120).
