  • ADC wind effects adjustment

    My 6300 seems to have the Allen effect that causes notes being held to jitter a bit when other notes are played ... Emulating air regulator "bounce."

    Is this effect adjustable? It seems too much to me.

    The late ADC line (the x3xx models) produces a wind effect on a separate tone generator board. I believe this effect is adjustable--you need the "cage chart" for your instrument to learn the details. Try searching the Forum--I seem to recall that someone posted a cage chart for this model.

    All Allen digitals have a separate random motion generator that varies the pitch and amplitude slightly for sustained notes. It is not adjustable on the earlier ADCs and I do not believe it is on the later ones either. Our Allen guru Jbird can tell you for sure. If one knows where to look, he can completely disable the random motion on a division-by-division basis (it is tied in with the tremolo), but I do not see a reason to do so--it is a subtle and desirable effect.

      I do have the cage chart, and I can see that the TG-10 allows adjustment of Chiff, but I'm not sure that's where the adjustment might be for the wind effect beyond chiff (i.e., regulator bounce). Perhaps that is random motion, but on my old MOS1, this affect was controlled by a rocker tab (that I believe was also called articulation).

        The TG-10 board will have numerous controls for the "articulate voicing" -- Allen-speak for the added chiff and airishness present in select voices on the late ADC models. You can safely turn all the controls down to zero on that board and see if you like it better.

        The actual "speech articulation" -- which is an entirely different effect and comes into play only when some notes are being held out while others are being playing percussively -- is set for each voice in the EPROM and not adjustable. But it is a very subtle effect and is surely not what you find annoying. I'm betting you'll be happier with the controls on the TG-10 turned way down.
