I’m concerned over MIDI Jitter issues so until I get that worked out I’m not comfortable recording realtime from an external sequencer into the Pyramid.
I’m not much of a keyboard player - I tend to noodle short phrases and then edit (a lot!) from there to get what I want. I’m still experimenting with how I want to interface with the Pyramid: right now I’m composing loops on the Pyramid (mostly drums because I like the pad interface for pgmg drum phrases - voiced on a rompler), then dumping them into a DAW and editing from there. I figure if/when I get around to creating a performance, the Pyramid will do it’s second duty, which is basically a MIDI playback device with options for repeating passages of music depending on what the guitarist/singer do or forget. heh (So, basically two Projects per ‘song’ - One that’s just noodles/creation, then dump & edit, then create a new Project for the performance version of the song)
I’m LOVING the Pyramid for creation and can’t wait for my first “from scratch Pyramid” piece, but that will come with time as I have other stuff to get done.
I’ve yet to explore analog beyond ‘the old days’, which usually consisted of ‘turn it on a pray it’s in tune’. I didn’t get voracious until the DX7IIFD came out. My bank account will hate me, but I like being able to call up patches.
So: you create a 16 bar track and want to ‘fill’ that with a .mid file?
I can do that easily following the basic steps listed in the documentation.
One Pyramid Track with One Pyramid Pattern - Don’t enable Patterns, create the Track. Save the Project. Stick the SD Card into the computer, copy the .mid file over to the appropriate directory, follow all the necessary naming conventions, eject the SDCard, put it back in the Pyramid, turn it on, load the Project and the data should be there. No?
