FAQ

Update

After the software update, the display does not turn on, the LFO Rate LED flashes quickly


Due to a problem during the software updating phase for the reasons described in the "SOFTWARE UPDATE" section of the manual, the installation of the new software was not completed successfully. Reset is possible but saved presets may be lost.




Is RemindeЯ updateable?


Yes, it is possible to update RemindeЯ via PC (Windows 7, 8 e 10) / Mac (10.12 Sierra to 10.15 Catalina). The updated file, the release notes, the instructions and the video procedure can be consulted at the following link. Windows: www.enjoy-lab.com/update-win Mac: www.enjoy-lab.com/update-osx




How do I know which software version I'm currently running?


As soon as it is switched on, the installed software version appears on the display. Compare it with the available software version, if your REmindEЯ is not updated, proceed to updating your device. Windows : www.enjoy-lab.com/update-win Mac : www.enjoy-lab.com/update-osx





Sound

Constant static noise or hum apparent in monitors.


Constant static noise or hum apparent in your monitors connected to REmindEЯ is often caused by a ground loop. A ground loop occurs when there are multiple paths to ground between two or more pieces of setup equipments. These paths create a loop which causes electrical interference in the form of an unwanted current through a conductor. If REmindEЯ is connected via the USB port of a MAC / PC, in order to be sure that the static noise or the hum is caused by a Ground Loop, try to supply REmindEЯ through a POWERBANK with USB port or a wall power supply (like the smartphone charger). If static noise or hum disappears, it means that the noise is caused by a USB GROUND LOOP. If you are unable to find the source of the second path to ground in your setup, you can use a USB GROUND LOOP ISOLATOR that works to prevent audible ground loop issues.




QUADRAPHONIC


REmindEЯ is equipped with 4 output channels. In order to take advantage of all the quadraphonic possibilities, you can assign different effects to different output channels. In the image below, we assigned the Double Pulse delay to channels 3 and 4. The quadraphonic experience generated by REmindEЯ is so incredibly stimulating that it could soon become a standard for events.




What are the 8 Working Modes?


REmindEЯ is equipped with 8 “WORKING MODE”, they allow to change the audio flow within the Power Delay section, with the addition, replacement and cancellation of the input sounds, output sound and within the feedback of the Main Delay.
• Normal Mode
• Manual Add
• Manual Change
• Manual Talk Over
• Manual Fractionated
• Auto Change
• Auto Talk Over
• Auto Fractionated Each MODE is detailed in the videos available in the dedicated sections of this FAQ.




Working Mode :  MANUAL ADD


Unlike the NORMAL MODE, in this case the sound does not enter in the section Power Delay and then in repetitions until the "TRIGGER" button is pressed.
By pressing the TRIGGER button in correspondence with another sound already within the
repetitions, the new sound is added to existing sound within the repetitions.

Try it using the feedback in the position ∞ : insert a long input signal (in example a lead or a bass) and press the trigger button in a quick and rhythmical way for two or three times. You will notice that the created repetitions follow exactly the rhythmic sequence realized by pressing the trigger button repeatedly.




Working Mode :  MANUAL CHANGE


Like in the MANUAL ADD mode, the sound does not enter in the Power Delay section and therefore in the repetitions until the "TRIGGER" button is pressed.
By pressing the TRIGGER button, in correspondence with another sound already existing in the repetitions, the new sound replaces the previous sound just in the moment when the TRIGGER button is pressed. It can also be used to empty the sound of the repetitions, simply by pressing the trigger button in the absence of input sound, in this way the sound inside the repetitions is replaced by silence intervals.




Working Mode : MANUAL TALKOVER


By pressing the "TRIGGER" button, the sound of the repetitions is muted and it is possible to add new sounds going directly to the output without entering the POWER DELAY section. When the button is released, the sound of the POWER DELAY repetitions becomes audible. Even with the TRIGGER button not pressed, the new input sound is not inserted into the loop.




Working Mode : MANUAL ADD 1/4


Like the MANUAL ADD, the sound enters into the POWER DELAY section only when the TRIGGER button is pressed. In this case, however, the length of the sound time is independent from the of TRIGGER button pressing time, it is a very short fraction. By pressing it repeatedly, repeated and very short fractions are inserted inside the DELAY section.




Working Mode : AUTOMATIC TALKOVER


The AUTOMATIC TALKOVER MODE is very similar to the MANUAL TALKOVER MODE but the trigger of the repetition mute function does not take place by the pressing of TRIGGER button, it is,instead, automatically recognized as soon as the input sound goes over the intervention threshold.
The yellow led of the TRIGGER indicates when the sound has gone over the threshold.

Use this mode with sounds having starts and releases very short. The use with sounds having long tails may let the release threshold reached with big delay and so the desired result may not be achieved.
The pressing of TRIGGER button allows the substitution of the sound inside the repetitions.




Working Mode : AUTOMATIC CHANGE


Like in the MANUAL CHANGE MODE, it is possible to substitute sound portions inside the repetitions, the substitution takes place as soon as the new input sound goes over the intervention threshold. The TRIGGER yellow led indicates if the sound went over the threshold. Use this mode with sounds having starts and releases very short. The use with sounds having long tails may let the release threshold reached with big delay and so the desired result not been achieved.
The pressing of TRIGGER button allows the add the sound to the one already in the loop, instead of its substitution.




Working Mode : AUTOMATIC ADD 1/4


Like in the MANUALL ADD 1/4 , it is possible to add very short sound fractions inside the POWER DELAY sections. The addition of the new fractionated sound take place every time a new sound enter in inpurt and goes over the intervention threshold.





Connection

Which cables should I use to connect REmindEЯ audio inputs and outputs?


REmindEЯ accepts only unbalanced TS monophonic cables at the audio input and output. To use stereophonic input it will be necessary to use 2 unbalanced TS monophonic cables. (Left and Right) To use stereophonic output it is necessary to use 2 unbalanced monophonic cables TS. (Out L - Out R) To use quadraphonic output it is necessary to use 4 unbalanced monophonic cables TS. (Out L - Out R - Out L2 - Out R2)




Send return connection


The connection SEND / RETURN allows you to mix both processed and unprocessed sounds separately.
Compared to the traditional connection already listed, the connection SEND / RETURN can have many advantages, such as the possibility of processing multiple instruments simultaneously via REmindEЯ, being able to independently adjust the level of each instrument to be sent to the send, or move the signal dry on one side of the mix and the signal processed on the other side, adding depth to the sound.




Can I use an external Tap switch with my RemindeЯ?


Yes, you can connect an external TAP switch to tap tempo remotely. Use a standard TRS cable to connect the external switch to the FOOT input on RemindeЯ.




Does RemindeЯ have Balanced or Unbalanced connections?


All audio inputs and outputs on RemindeЯ use MONO TS unbalanced connections. You can use a TRS cable to plug into the inputs and outputs of the RemindeЯ, however, there is no benefit to using TRS balanced cable over a MONO TS instrument cable.




Power Supply


REmindEЯ can be powered by connecting it to a 2A 5V USB power supply, or to a computer. The USB cable supplied with REmindEЯ allows both power supply and connection to the PC / MAC to take advantage of USB MIDI connectivity. The Power Supply Unit is not included with the REmindEЯ, but any reasonably standard 2Amp USB power supply will do well! We do not offer it because we cannot keep stock of all the different power outlets across the globe.




Quadraphonic connection


REmindEЯ is equipped with 4 output channels to take advantage of all the quadraphonic
possibilities and assign different effects to different output channels.
To use quadraphonic output it is necessary to use 4 unbalanced monophonic cables TS. (Out L - Out R - Out L2 - Out R2)
The quadraphonic experience generated by REmindEЯ is so incredibly stimulating that it could
soon become a standard for events.




Switching on / off


REmindEЯ is not equipped with a switch for switching on and off. Switching on takes automatically place once the USB cable is connected to the power source or to the PC / MAC.




Foot control


REmindEЯ is equipped with two inputs for external control
From SETTING MENU, it is possible to associate the functions to the two pedals
- TAP TEMPO
- TRIGGER
- BYPASS




Midi Thru


To forward the incoming MIDI signal to another MIDI device, connect the connection MIDI THRU of REmindEЯ to the MIDI input of the other MIDI device. It doesn't need activations.




Connectivity


On the back panel of Reminder you will have a multitude of connections that will allow you to communicate in input and output with all the most common instruments present in the studio or live setup

What is REmindEЯ ?


REmindEЯ is a revolutionary desktop effects multiprocessor. The combination of classic effects such as delay, reverb and filters, with innovative effects such as double pulse and working mode, with the addition of modulation possibilities have allowed us to create a device that is more than just a sound processor, RemindeЯ is designed to inspire sonic creativity! REmindEЯ revolutionizes the method of using audio effects allowing the user, professional or amateur, to break the creative boundaries of the instruments currently on the market. From the simple use to give color or modify the sounds,we move on to a real sound composition system based on the creativity that RemindeЯ can give back to the user thanks to the substantial rhythmic and harmonic increase it produces.




Is it possible to control the parameters through the midi?


The control and mapping MIDI function will be added to future software updates.





Tempo

What is the maximum delay time?


The delay times can be all synchronized and regulated according the BPM setting. In example: by using 60 BPM setting you will have a delay time of 2 sec. by using 120 BPM setting and the DOT function you will have a delay time of 1.5 sec. Consider that there are many delay levels inside REmindEЯ and each one can be set with different times.




How can I set the GLOBAL TEMPO manually?


From the main display screen (VuMeter) turn the “SETTING” knob to select the new desired time value. The value appears on the display in BPM. By holding down the “PRESET” button and by turning the “SETTING” knob you can adjust the setting by steps of 0.1 units. After choosing the new tempo setting, press the “SETTING” knob to confirm and apply the new GLOBAL TEMPO




How can I set the tempo with the TAP TEMPO?


To set the “GLOBAL TEMPO”, it is possible to rhythmically tap the TAP button, timing the desired tempo. Just tap the TAP button few times following the tempo of the musical piece. The time will be applied to all DELAY, OFFSET, DOUBLE PULSE and LFO functions that are active. It should be noted that the time is defined and indicated on the basis of the selected division values. The time in BPM that is set through the “SETTING” encoder or through the TAP button control the same parameter: the GLOBAL TEMPO of REmindEЯ. The two controls exclude each other, then adjusting one of them will override the other.




How can I set MIDI DIN CLOCK recognition?


It is possible to connect a computer / DAW (or any other device capable of generating a MIDI Clock signal) to the MIDI IN input, to control the GLOBAL TEMPO of REmindEЯ. To activate the clock recognition using MIDI IN DIN enter the MENU ↠ MIDI SETTING ↠ MIDI CLOCK DIN5. The MIDI Clock signal excludes the possibility of adjusting the tempo manually or via the TAP TEMPO function.




How can I set USB MIDI CLOCK recognition?


By connecting REmindEЯ to a PC / MAC via the USB connection, it is possible to control the GLOBAL TEMPO of REmindEЯ by means of a DAW. To activate the clock recognition via MIDI IN USB enter the MENU ↠ MIDI SETTING ↠ MIDI USB. The MIDI Clock signal excludes the possibility of adjusting the tempo manually or via the TAP TEMPO function.
