I think i have noticed something that has changed!
Maybe a bugg!!
Yes, this has been changed, but it is a feature
Goto layer asingment!
Press Layer A
This will show the edit screen so long you press&hold the layer button, and the message will disappear 2 seconds after the button has been depressed.
Very nice for quickly checking, which events are played by a track without changing into the edit screen. You don't need to remember, how to enter the current menu page again.
It's especially nice in conjunction with the step recording function, because it allows you to check the recorded values without leaving recording mode.
Turn a GP encoder or push a GP button...
Now you are back in layer asignments.... Think all menues work the same way...
yes, because it's only a layer display, and not layer edit mode
Think it would be nicer if you could jump to the track with Trigger and Layer!!
Really? Why not pressing the edit button if you want to edit a layer?
I was thinking about live uses and thought about this. Is there some kind of function for repeating steps? I am not refering to multi-trigger of the step. I am thinking about actualy repeating the current step multiple times (going back in time I guess) by press + hold function button and twisting the tempo knob at the same time to make stuttering drum and bass style play.
Maybe the timing of the repeat can be determined by the master divider? I imagine this would make for another parameter in a menu page. I was also thinking if this concept is possible for a single track,muliple selectable tracks or all tracks. One dedicated button for single-multi tracks and one button for all tracks. I don't quite know how doing only certain tracks would work but these are all just thoughts.
Without too much effort I could add following functions to the existing code:
- replaying the current step of selected tracks so long a special button is pressed
- after releasing the button function, either continue with the next step, or continue with the step which would be played if you wouldn't activate the function (in other words: if you activate the function for 4 16th note steps, the track would continue with the 5th step)
I think that both possibilities are useful. The first matches with your descriptions, the second has the advantage that the track is in-synch again with other tracks once you release the button
- optional 2x, 3x or 4x multi-triggers per step
About the tempo control. I was thinking the tempo knob would adjust either the tempo while pressing the pattern repeat or adjust the divider and possibly having the original value stored in memory so when you let go of the pattern repeat button, your original tempo or divider will be back and your still in the groove. Maybe even sending the multiple repeats to the midi outs on/off for extra wierd stuff?
So, you want to speed up the step progression and clock dividers in addition. Thats possible, but it wouldn't allow to synchronize back to the other tracks before the next measure is reached. Is this acceptable?
Maybe a special menu page would be helpful, where you can tweak multiple speed/repeat/step behaviour parameters which control this special function, so that everybody can decide by himself, which settings are working best with his style.
If there is anything I can add or adjust in the text editor asm to at least do a repeat function that would be a start.
haha - no ;)
But I find these experimental features attractive.
