Introducing Selig NoteView, a simple Player device for Propellerhead’s Reason music creation software. Use this Player to see the real-time results of other players, to check that you’re receiving the expected notes at an instrument, and for real-time non-destructive transposing. You can also use the back panel CV inputs to transpose, choosing from the Note/Gate CV inputs (from sequencers etc.) or a standard bi-polar CV input with trim knob.
Main Features •View Eight Octaves of Note Data at Once •Transpose ± 8 Octaves and ± 12 Semitones for ±9 Octaves Total •CV Note Input for Transpose via Note/Gate or standard CV signals •Switch between viewing MIDI input or output to compare before/after transpositions
There’s not much you need to know about this Player to get started, simply drag it to the location you wish to “view”, and let it do it’s thing! Transposing from the front panel is simple as well, just drag the Oct and Semi control up or down to the desired about of transposition and the keyboard display will automatically reflect the results. You can alternatively set the keyboard display to show MIDI input, to compare with the output if desired.
Obvious applications are to insert a NoteView at the beginning of a Player device “chain” to visualize the notes at the source/input of the chain (for trouble shooting or simply to confirm an input is present). NoteView is also handy at any other point in a Player chain, and at the end of a Player device chain to see the results of Player devices on the MIDI signal.
Transposing note from the front panel is done via Octave and Semitone controls. You can also simultaneously transpose notes from the back panel CV inputs.
Back panel CV inputs Note/Gate CV inputs are for transposition/control from other sequencer type devices like the Matrix, which is great for transposing on the fly for different song sections, or to create variations on arpeggiator patterns by transposing up/down various amounts as the sequencer plays.
There is also a standard CV control input (with a trim knob) for create modulation effects via an LFO or other CV device, which can create complex and interesting variations on whatever note data is coming into NoteView.
