Are you using the loop points while editing a sequence?

In this case, Fx->Loop is the right function.

E.g. "Loop in Step View" automatically plays the steps which are displayed on screen.

The loop function can be activated under Fx-Loop, or with the shortcut "MENU+Scrub"

Or do you want to use different loop zones during a performance?

Then just wait for the "Sections" feature, which will work similar to the way how I realized it for MB-808 (see TODO List in the ChangeLog). For A/B/C/D it will be possible to define different step offsets and lengths.

And this should be done in the Length page - therefore I'm not happy with your suggestion to put new items into this page (items which have to be removed later)!

Best Regards, Thorsten.

Alright still don't understand properly setting the tracks to 64 steps,128 steps ect.

I think I found a bug with the "all" function. When I have some notes laid down and I have them set to a low velocity then I add some more notes which are by default much higher, then I use the all function to lower the velocity and it lowers every notes velocity on the track. So far so good. BUT..... the note gates go away and when I try to turn up the velocity I only get it on one step and not "ALL" steps. I was making hit hat vel variations and turned down the velocity a little too much and it makes your tracks drop out without an easy way to turn them back up. I hope i am clearly explaining myself.

Press MENU->EVENT (GP button #2), ensure that a configuration with 64, 128 or 256 steps partitioning is selected (as desired)

Press MENU->LENGTH (GP button #6), and either select the length with GP encoder 2/3, or use GP button 14, 15, 16 for quick selection

By pressing the "Step View" button you can verify, which step is currently played.

The layout of this view depends on the max. number of steps...

Thats due to a programming problem (we have to remember which gates were inactive before), but I will try to find a proper solution. I guess that MBSEQ V3 showed the same behaviour?

Thanks TK.

I was only using the length function and not the event page setting.

As far as the "all" problem, should I reload v3 to verify that this already was occurring?

I will scratch my brain but I am no programmer.

I will replace the 128 and 256 steps items by "---" in the length page if not supported by the selected partitioning.

(on a graphical screen, we would gray out the items ;))

/Edit: + a warning message will be displayed if 128 or 256 steps selected.

As far as the "all" problem, should I reload v3 to verify that this already was occurring?

No, since the code is implemented in a different way meanwhile.

For MBSEQ V3 the available RAM was the limitation, for V4 such limitations are a bit more relaxed, so that such special cases can be covered. It's just only a question of time (and code complexity) to program it properly so that it works under all conditions (e.g. I have to differentiate between "normal" and "drum" tracks...)

News: today I implemented a generic list browser - I really like the implementation, it allows to browse through directories (or other lists) very quickly by using the whole screen + GP buttons/encoders and/or Datawheel/SELECT button. Once the SysEx librarian is completely available, I will continue with MIDI file import and export.

Still having issues with track lengths. I would look into event page and see that 64 steps is what is enabled with 16 par layers and 8 trig layers. Then go to menu + length and change it to 64/64 and then go to my stepview page and still see the track only cycling thru 1-16 and not 1-64. Loop is at one. A Lot of tracks also go thru 18-22 steps one cycle then the normal 16 steps the next time. Like I.E its going 36 steps and never passing  the 1-16 mark. what else am i missing?

To comment further on my last post. Right now I have a track that is 64/64 steps in length in 16T triplet time and looking at step view it is cycling 1-24. Is this normal and why? I have an external master clock coming from my tr-707 and slaving the MBSEQ. I know on my roland drum machine the old manual tells you if you have a triplet pattern you should set the loop to only 12 steps instead of 16 steps to get a "proper loop". I always kept the roland on 16 steps in triplet time. and put the clap on 5 and 13 like the beastie boys tell me to do so  ;) Still confused here.

Could you please store the pattern which doesn't play the steps correctly into 1:A1, and thereafter send me following files in a .zip package: MBSEQ_B1.V4, MBSEQ_C.V4 and MBSEQ_G.V4

Before sending, please check if the issue can be reproduced after power-on when pattern 1:A1 is selected again.

Best Regards, Thorsten.

I will try to get this done tonight. At work right now 8)

As a side note. When I power the seq on the pattern in 1:A1 is the default "c-3 every 4 steps". I have to hit the pattern button to select what I had assigned to 1:A1 last. Just thought I'd mention this. Going off memory I am sure the default "c-3 every 4 steps" pattern at boot will play patterns normally but I will find out later tonight.

Thanks again for taking so much time with this. By now I'm hoping its not human error so I won't get whacked with the stupid stick!

And back to the fx echo reapeats not working correctly I have not been able to reproduce the lag I was previously talking about. It was probably my usb driver and lag on the pc  or something as far as I can tell.

I checked  track length 64 at my box, here etherything OK, 64 steps playing with divider 16 or 16T.

I also checked other track lengths.

But I have an Issue with the chaselight on the LED MATRIX when the length of one Track is longer than16:

When the selected Track is the one with more than 16 steps the chaselights of the other three Tracks

freeze when the Chaselight of the selected (> 16steps) Track reaches step 17, and they stay frozen untill the chaselight of the selected (> 16steps) Track reaches step 1 again.

When the selected Track is one with Steplength < or = 16 everything is OK.

This is reproduceable.

EDIT:

here is a link to a videoclip showing this Bug:

(Track 1=Length8, Track 2=Length32, Track 3&4=Length16)

I've included some really useful reporting functions into beta5 which will help to find out the root cause.

More in the next mail.

If you send me the System, Globals, Tracks and TrackInfo report (TrackInfo only for the track which isn't stepped correctly), I probably don't need the files.

As a side note. When I power the seq on the pattern in 1:A1 is the default "c-3 every 4 steps". I have to hit the pattern button to select what I had assigned to 1:A1 last. Just thought I'd mention this.

Thats the intended behaviour. Patterns are not automatically loaded after startup - we always start with the default setup like known from Canon Cameras. ;)

And back to the fx echo reapeats not working correctly I have not been able to reproduce the lag I was previously talking about. It was probably my usb driver and lag on the pc  or something as far as I can tell.

The possible USB data rate which can be handled by STM32 is pretty high. It could happen that your host application causes the problem if it receives so many events.

E.g., I've a similar issue with MIOS Studio under MacOS when a lot of debugging messages are received. It can take minutes until MIOS Studio displayed everything what MIOS32 has sent within one second.

No issue with host applications like Logic Studio... they can handle the data rate without failures.

But I have an Issue with the chaselight on the LED MATRIX when the length of one Track is longer than16

Ok, will be checked, but this can take a bit longer, since I have to open my MBSEQ V3 case to test the BLM with V4 firmware. Maybe a code review helps to find the root cause earlier...

Best Regards, Thorsten.

Beta5 is available, ChangeLog:

[tt]

 o overworked menu page selection (now uses new list browser)

 o added new info page "About this MIDIbox" (at the end of menu list) to

   simplify support.

   A lot of additional informations are sent to the MIOS Terminal when

   an item (displayed at left page) is selected with a GP or the SELECT

   button. Use the datawheel or a GP encoder to browse through the list.

   MIOS Terminal is part of MIOS Studio, a command line tool for MacOS

   available as well.

 o Length 128/256 quick selection won't be displayed anymore if track

   partition doesn't allow this number of steps

 o fixed various minor bugs

[/tt]

Here some tips how you can help me to understand/reproduce your reported issues in future by using the new debugging functions.

  • press EXIT, browse to the "About this MIDIbox" item at the end of the list with the datawheel or GP encoder
  • select this item to enter the "About this MIDIbox" page
  • now you can select additional "information" items, this time only with the left GPs (or datawheel...). The right side shows informations about the selected item.
  • copy&paste at least following reports: System and SD Card (if not already done before), Globals and Tracks
  • In addition, send TrackInfo/ParLayers/TrgLayers/Mixer Map/Song/Groove reports depending on the issue you found

Here an example of the System Report:

  o now it's possible to send SysEx dumps stored on SD Card to MIDI devices.

    Preparation: create a directory called "sysex" on your SD Card, thereafter

    create subdirectories for each MIDI Device you want to use.

    For example:

      sysex/MBSID

      sysex/MBFM

      sysex/MicroQ

    Now copy .syx files into these directories which should be sent to the

    devices later.

    Thats all! On your MIDIbox SEQ, change to the MENU->SYSEX menu, the

    devices will be displayed on screen. Select a device to browse through

    the file list. Select a file to send the dump.

    Note: currently .syx files are only sent to the Default port (selected in

    MIDI page). A "store .syx dump" function is planned for later releases.

Ha figured it out!

Options page right under the word change it was set to 16 and I set that to 256. Why would someone set this to 16? When looking at the code under global settings it is the steps per measure correct?

Also what does sync pat change (on/off) do exactly? (in options)

Regards,

Echo

Yes, of course - so, you've proven that Synch-to-Measure works correctly ;)

Why would someone set this to 16? When looking at the code under global settings it is the steps per measure correct?

yes... and 16 is a good choice for common 4/4 style songs, I don't see a reason why I should change this default value.

Also what does sync pat change (on/off) do exactly? (in options)

It's explained in the user manual - basically it has the same purpose as known from V3

But I just remembered, that I haven't implemented the synched pattern change yet (who really needs this?)

Doing sync pattern change is not a big deal but I think that the option to do it would be great. Some people prefer new patterns to start imediatly and others like it like roland tr drum machines where the pattern changes at the end of the loop.

I use this all the time. Much of my other equipment changes patterns at the end of loop.

I'm getting new core soon so ill try to give some feedback after upgrade.

Thanks,

Hi, I am not sure if I am doing something wrong, but I can not get my SEQ (Beta6) to

execute the action defined at song position when I am in phrase mode.

I use encoder #2 to change the song position but the new position will only flash in the

display and nothing will happen.

Am I missing something? Do I have to do something to execute the action defined at the

new song position?

Best regards

You have to "fire" the song position by using one of the 16 GP buttons.

Each GP button selects another song position (accordingly 16 "phrases" can be selected).

This change was required, as users requested to combine multiple steps to a phrase (e.g. selecting the tempo, mixer map and mutes in addition)

I'm sorry about this complicated usage --- but this is just the result when I have to try to find a feasible solution to cover your requests.

Best Regards, Thorsten.

Btw. Gridracer: please let me know when you are ready to test a modified firmware for debugging the chaselight issue you reported (I already wrote you a PM, but haven't got an answer).

I copied an updated "mbseq_tmp" version based on beta6 to the server.

Related to this comment a question to users:

I use encoder #2 to change the song position but the new position will only flash in the

display and nothing will happen.

I'm planning to improve the CC number entry in Event Track and LFO Configuration page this way: selection of CC with rotary encoder, confirmation with GP button, so that CC doesn't change immediately (resp. "random CCs" will be sent while a sequence is playing)

I already feared that this way of number entry could be confusing, as all other values are usually modified directly with the encoder. Gridracers "trouble posting" confirms, that this is an unexpected behaviour.

So, I will probably get rid of this idea.

I could alternatively add a delay of (for example) 3 seconds until the CC number change takes place (counted from last encoder move), so that there is enough time to find the correct value. But this would slow down the usage.

Are there other proposals?

Best Regards, Thorsten.

Dearful sorry, I did not notice the PM.

But now I uploaded the new file and everything works perfect!!

Thank you very much!

Funny, just two hours ago I managed to completely confuse one of my synths by scrolling through the CCs so that only powering off and on could bring it back to life.

How about this:

Couldn't you display a message in Event Track page when changing the CCs like:

"Confirm with SELECT" like in a way when saving a pattern on SEQV3?

But I think it is not a big issue as you can mute the parameter layer in advance.

And in the LFO Configuration page you can set the LFO to off for CCs while selecting.

But non the less, the 3s waiting time wolud be an additional help.

EDIT:

Another Idea:

How about to mark parameters that should not be automatically updated by turning the encoder

with e.g. a "!" sign ahead of their name to indicate that their change has to be confirmed by pressing the

GP Button below. I think that would be easy to learn and keep in mind if it would be possible to keep

that consistant within all menu pages.

Ah, now it is clear, i was missing "Each GP button selects another song position" as the manual says

"By pushing a GP button, the sequencer will execute the action defined at song position A1, B1, C1..P1"

Now that I know i think it is quiet easy and comfortable.

Anyway I just wasn't trying hard enough in advance.
