Thanks for the help, Joosep, I really appreciate that!
Unfortunately your suggestion is not the way to go neither:
I try to lay out my ideas on one bank only, so I can record / loop on the fly in just a simple and quick way. Doing it this way I’m also able to play (mute / unmute) these ideas quick and easily.
here’s why your suggestion wouldn’t work for me:
- for recording a loop, followed by copying / pasting a track to another bank, you need both hands and quite a lot of actions again:
- go to live mode to record
- go to track mode to do the copy/paste thing
- press 2nd / copy + track to copy from
- press the arrow buttons to go to another bank
- press 2nd / copy + track to paste on
- going back to bank A or to live mode to be able to record next idea
- When you have your musical ideas (midi loops / CC track) for the same synth spread out on the 4 banks (only 4 banks so 4 ideas / CC tracks maximum per synth), you can’t play them creatively in an intuitive way. You always have to switch banks then in multichannel mode…
Pyramid really is a very nice tool with a lot of potential, great for pre-recording things and building songs. But some live-recording-friendly functionality still is missing, I’m afraid.
Some things are made up just too complex for this way of using the Pyramid (= as a live MIDI recorder / looper).
That’s my personal point of view, and maybe of some other live instrumentalists / musicians too, I don’t know…
Maybe my live setup as a keyboard / synth player, just wanting to catch quick and easily some ideas (loops) as they grow through a live performance, doesn’t match very well with the more ‘pre-sequencing’ or non-instrumentalists approach of the Pyramid.
Anyway, I don’t give the Pyramid up yet.
Still hope the Pyramid squad have ears for suggestions like these, but I understand it ain’t easy to please everyone who has suggestions / requests. Must be a hell of a job
