  1. I would like to have the F1~ F4 buttons jump me to the Events, Direction, Divider & Length screens (directly with just a single button press, instead of pressing MENU + GP buttons) I edited the HWConfig file (see BOLDFACED below), saved and restarted, but the F buttons now do nothing.  Is it possible to do what I want?  If so what am I doing wrong? thanks for any help, Andrew # Following button functions are usually assigned to Fx # buttons, or to dedicated (labeled) buttons # In Wilba's frontpanel layout: # F1 is located at SR M3 Pin 3 # F2 is located at SR M2 Pin 2 # F3 is located at SR M2 Pin 3 # F4 is located at SR M1 Pin 2 # and there are dedicated buttons for Copy/Paste/Clear/Utility/StepView #                    SR  Pin EVENTS              M3   3 DIRECTION           M2   2 DIVIDER             M2   3 LENGTH              M1   2  
  2. FX Duplicate - monosynths>poly

    I want to use my MIDIBox Seq as a way to play four monosynths (using CV/Gate) as a polysynth from a MIDI keyboard. The manual says this can be done with the FX Duplicate but I have had no success after hours and hours of trial & error. I have G1T1 set to AOUT/1, G1T2 set to AOUT/2, G1T3 set to AOUT/3 and G1T4 set to AOUT/4.  If I put notes into those four tracks they play perfectly as they should. But when I try to route live MIDI notes in, I never get the monosynths playing the different notes. I am running ver 4.092 thanks for any help!  Andrew
  3. MIDIbox SEQ new frontpanel idea

    Yeah, the Jam mode blew me away when I finally started playing with it!   I do have a question about it though:  sometimes when I press the CLEAR button it instantly clears the entire Track, but other times it seems to just erase notes that are played while the button is held (so if I only held down the CLEAR button during steps 2~9, any notes on steps 1 and 10~16 would not be erased) Why is that?  Is there something that chooses which way it works, or am I confused...?

  4. MIDIbox SEQ V4 Release + Feedback

    Did some posts disappear? I posted a suggestion (a "hold" button for indefinitely repeating a step in a Song) but now it's gone (?) And the two replies of others who liked it  :-) Drew EDIT: just found it...  I must have been in the "front panel" thread when I wrote it 
  5. MIDIbox SEQ new frontpanel idea

    The MIDIBOX Seq just keeps getting better and better  :-) An idea to consider:  In Song mode, could a button (one with an LED indicator such as All or Fast) be made to "repeat the current song step indefinitely" while it's ON?  Then when it's turned OFF, the Song Step would finish and proceed to the next Song Step. This would give you a little interactivity & flexibility during Songs.  A Song Step could play for an extended time for a solo or break.  Would be very useful during live performance. thanks!   Andrew  
  6. MIDIbox SEQ V4 Release + Feedback

    Is there a way to move all notes in a track forward or backward one step? Some sequencers have a "shift" or "rotate" function that move 1>2, 2>3, 3>4, etc. Or a way to insert a blank step 1, which would move all existing steps back...? Hopefully there's something like this already and I've just missed it :-) Drew

    Wow that was fast, and my initial testing (with Moog Prodigy) has it working perfectly :-D I will do some further experimentation over the next few days. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY, JOY JOY JOY !!! Andrew
  8. MIDIbox SEQ V4 Release + Feedback

    I know I brought this up last spring, but I am now heavily using my old synths and modular with my V4/AOUT and (for me at least) the ability to turn on/off the CV "slide" (on the CV Config page) with the "slide" trigger would be the most useful new feature I can imagine. The "fingered portamento" + Slide Trigger (using MIDI synths) is wonderful, but my old Moog, Roland and modular want this feature too :-D Just curious to know if it might happen someday.  It would be an logical and elegant solution to controlling glide; a dream come true. Andrew

    Would it be too expensive if it was limited to just the CH/OH instruments on a Drum track? The "enhanced" versions of my idea are interesting, but I'd be totally happy with just the "simple" version  :-) Andrew

    Request for a Roland TR-909 feature: On many drum machines, you can enter 16 Closed HiHat (CH) notes, then switch to Open HiHat (OH) and add a few notes. When the pattern plays, every step that has both a CH *and* an OH note will only play the OH.  And if you remove a OH note, the CH note is still there; the CH notes aren't removed, just temporarily "over-ride muted".  This makes pattern-building / experimenting / jamming much easier. Hope that makes sense... LOVE MY MIDIBOX SEQ V4!!!! Andrew
  11. BankStick - Seq V4

    Can someone point me to documentation (or explain) about the BankStick? I've built a Seq V4 (with the STM32F4 core) and I thought everything was being stored on the SD card, but then find that on the Pattern screen there are 64 Patterns but each one has three additional "versions" that are stored on the BankStick that you can get to by turning the #3, #7, #11 and #15 encoder? Also, is there a way to disable those #3, #7, #11 and #15 encoders on the Pattern screen so I can't accidently  change to a BankStick pattern (I go to turn the #4 encoder to change a pattern but mistakenly grab and turn the #3 instead)?  I am fine with 64 Patterns. Any help is greatly appreciated  :-) Confused Drew
  12. Nth question

    CANCEL THAT QUESTION! Those are "dummy values"...  found that in a different thread  :o) Drew
  13. Nth question

    When scrolling through the values for Nth1 or Nth2, the choices are  2, 3, ... 15, 16, then the Mute, Play, etc. What are those first 2~16 values for?  They are not mentioned in the manual and I can't make then do anything...? (also, the ??1, ??2, ??3, etc choices are not mentioned in the manual either) MIDIBox loving Drew :-)
  14. MIDIbox SEQ V4 Release + Feedback

    I finally have my DOUT and AOUT_NG units working on my Seq V4 and my drum modules and monosynths & modular are having a blast  :-) The "slide" amount for each CV in the "CV Config" page is a nice feature.  Would it be possible for it to work like "fingered portamento" on many MIDI synths?  Having two notes connected via a "glide" duration would turn on the slide, separated notes would make it zero. I have no idea if that might be possible...  it would be really cool :-) Drew
  15. Updated to V90 - features missing :-(

    jjonas - You are Crow and I feel like Gypsy!  I never realized you could choose the layers you want in a track!  I had been turning the GP knob 9 to scroll through the layers, thinking that those were the only parameter layers that were available.  I had never touched the GP knob 10. Thank you for enlightening me! (Push the button Frank...) Drew
