Can we talk about Animoog pressure?

I’m having a hard time with the behaviour of Animoog’s pressure modulation and the Linnstrument.

It’s nothing new but now I’m recording a few ideas and it bothers me.

I’ve got this patch that opens the filter with Aftertouch (pressure in Animoog). It has also a long release. On key off the filter is hard reset and kills the envelope release. If I play with the Animoog keyboard there is no problem.

You can hear an example here:

This is also easy to see in another patch: Shiny dots (factory presets on Keys). Here pressure controls volume among other parameters. Played with the Linnstrument results in a wobbling sound, very weak attack, loses all its intimacy.

Played with the Animoog keyboard it sounds gorgeous.

Example here:

I can understand if there are differences in sound with different controllers. The point is that it makes creating patches for the Linnstrument really difficult.

I don’t really know if there is something wrong with Animoog or the Linnstrument or the way I approach this so any comment or suggestion would be appreciated.

The person with the highest possible competence regarding Linnstrument on Animoog would be @gbevin

Thanks for the answer, @NothanUmber
I sent a message to Moog support and usually he gets them.

In the meantime I purchased Bitwig Studio. Maybe it’s time to try something new.

Please post what you find out, I’ve had difficulty getting pressure to “feel” right in Animoog as well.

Sure I will.
I was beginning to think I was the only one with that problem.

I’m going to post my question in Roger Linn’s forum too. I’m not sure how many people are in both places.

Roger Linn is for certain more (or exclusively) on his forum - but very active and helpful there. He meant that he wants to focus on one thing and do this properly when we asked him to join polyexpression also. Understandable.

Well, @gbevin answered saying he would look into it. As he knows about it I haven’t posted the question at Roger’s forum.

I am at the moment busy learning Bitwig, almost given up to hook my Linnstrument to the iPad anymore. Maybe with a new Animoog version…
