Wondering if someone can help me get some sense out of the Euclid effect.
I have just a single “step”, haven’t messed with the sequence length (Step + Y) or sequence zoom (Step + X)
I have a randomised base pattern based on the following parameters -
Min Num Notes: 24
Max Num Notes: 32
Min Notes: C3
Max Notes: C8
and then a Scale effect (Minor Dorian) over the top.
Anyway, this produces a nice (short) random pattern, 32 notes with some gaps, played at a reasonably fast tempo.
What I want to do is get the Hermod to repeat the first (say) 5 notes of this pattern over and over, so that the “overall” pattern would repeat itself every 160 notes (5*32), in a polyrhythmic manner.
I had assumed the Euclid effect would do this, but no amount of experimentation with the Steps / Fills / Rate parameters seems to generate this kind of effect. I tend instead to get long silences punctuated by the occasional stray note :-/
Can someone point me in the right direction ?
