Update: after finding a couple of youtubers with similar issues, I can confirm that in mono mode, the problem does not appear to happen when using CV to control the pitch and gate of VCO1. This is not a fix as there is no way to use the Poly mode like this without a second CV source for VCO2. Just interesting.
I've been looking forward to the release of the CAT since it was announced. I just received my CAT today and have noticed a couple of quirks while jamming with it. I'm hoping it's just me, but it's so early, I thought I'd make a thread for other early adopters to chime in. First off, this synth sounds absolutely amazing. The range of tones I can coax out of it is astronomical. The only issue I seem to be having is note tracking. When playing songs where I would glide or slide up from one half step up or down, the note I'm trying to land on does not sound. It's almost like the note priority is not quite correct. I understand that in poly mode, one VCO handles the highest note and vice versa, but in mono mode, I can't seem to see a pattern of highest, lowest, or last note priority. When I press and hold one note and then press another note while still holding the first, the second note will play without retriggering the envelope (which is expected), but when I release the second note, the first note that I am still holding down does not return. I have to release the first note entirely and re-trigger it. This is not how any other synth I own behaves. What could I be doing wrong or is there potentially a glitch? I also own: Behringer Model D, Roland SE-02, Roland SH-01A, Roland SH201, Roland System-8, Studiologic Sledge, Casio CZ-5000, Korg Prologue 16, Yamaha DX7, Arturia DBI, Roland VT-4, and various modular gear. The CAT is the only synth that does this.
