this refill requires the original O.Range
Although we have reoptimized all NN-19
patches and ReDrum Kits, the most important
part is definitely the NN-XT section.
We usually say that these NN-XT patches
are optimized for using NN-XT. What
does it exactly mean?
Well, in the NN-19 you can automate all faders
and knobs via MIDI. In NN-XT you can only automate
the global controls. It's not a step back, but
comes from the philosophy of the 2 device. NN-19
is a simple sampler, it handles only 1 layer,
while NN-XT is designed to contain unlimited number
of layers which are totally independent from each
other. It would be confusing (or to be more precise:
not possible) if you were able to control the
parameters of these layers through MIDI. Instead,
you can only control the global parameters.
The main point is that we've optimized our NN-XT
patches for the extensive use of global controls.
You can turn any knobs, it will work.
Nevertheless, when you just load an old NN-19
patch into the NN-XT, in many cases some knobs
(eg. the decay) won't work.
