I agree. It’s strange isn’t it? Funny how Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 can create a different set of relationships than assembling mute states.
We do have patterns in the Pyramid, and they’re wonderful and they work similarly to this idea. I trust you’ve played around with them. I think my issue with parts is only a matter of access. It’s strange in a set to put the Pyramid into a different mode, and then look at things differently, and work in there, and then to back out again, and then back in, and then out… I get pretty caught up in what I’m doing in a performance (performing live or recording, same) and I really don’t want to stop and think "Ok, I need to adjust this part here, so let’s hold 2nd and click into the patterns, and now do things…"
Perhaps it’s muscle memory and I need to rehearse. That’s possible. But Ultimately I would love to see something a little more like Hermod’s fantastic use of SEQ applied to Pyramid.
There indeed really is something about having a fresh set of blank places to program things that is somehow very inspiring.
