    thanks for the latest version but the patches remain the same from one channel to the next…

    Bengal looks great. I already have Oscillot. Does Bengal have anything that Oscillot does not, aside from the obvious GUI differences?

    hi. how do i access the fine tune?

  • #57235


    It seems like Ableton’s website is still downloading v1.1

    I guess in theory you could build a similar 4-OP FM synth from Oscillot modules, but that would be quite a big patch and a bit painful to use. Also, there are quite a few bits in Bengal that are different to the stock Oscillot modules, e.g. most of the filters, some of the effects, the function generator, the sequencer, which has note scaling, glide, etc., so I’d guess the results would also sound a bit different.

    All in all, I’d say Bengal is more convenient to use for what it is, whereas Oscillot is giving you a lot more freedom in making your own synth- or effect creations. Hope this helps.

    It’s in the GLOBAL section (bottom right corner of the interface), below the GLIDE parameter.

    Yeah, this is unfortunately a problem of Ableton’s pack versioning. The pack version is not the same / not in sync with the actual M4L device version that is delivered with the pack. Just go ahead, download the latest pack from the site and install it. It should now say “Version 1.0.2” in the actual Bengal device (underneath the “Open Editor” button).

    When I go to the link, it says to “Add To Cart”, even if I already have this pack, and I am logged into

    Whoops – my mistake. Seems I was logged into with my work account rather than my personal account. It’s all solved now, and I have 1.0.2 installed.
