So, to cut right to it - let’s say I have a synth on track 1 I’m controlling. Got a nice melody going on pattern 1, have the ARP midi effect on, and I’d like to just make a tiny variation of that ARP for pattern 2 (on the same track). Is there some way I can give the arp midi effect a permanent new setting for pattern 2 without parameter-locking or automating it (let’s say change it from random mode to up/down, for instance)? Let’s say I have a 4 bar loop, for instance, I could always p-lock all the steps or automate over the four bars, but is there a simpler/quicker way to change the midi fx settings for the entire pattern?
I guess I could just use different tracks, and I might end up doing that, but having different midi fx settings per pattern would be ace, and would pretty much make the creation of slight variations of patterns such a breeze.
there isn’t any way, automation or separate track is the solution.
Ok, good to know. cheers!
I got my second-hand pyramid over 2 weeks ago and loving the agreeable work flow and the variations the fx and polyrhythm. I am using it to sequence my DT and Waldorf rocket. I was curious and I may have missed it but couldn’t figure out if it is possible to p-lock per note (step sequencer) or is it only possible via automation of the FX units?
What parameter did you want to “lock”?
I want to apply the parameters available in the DT to the notes I am triggering from the Pyramid.
Im sorry for got to say…thank you for responding.
Okay ,here’s a step by step:
- Determine which MIDI CC you need to send to affect the DT Parameters
- Enter that info on the Pyramid in Step Mode
ETA: Pyramid Manual - Step Mode - CC messages Stepmode
(Sometimes the links go right to the correct anchor, and sometimes you have to scroll, but look for the “CC messages Stepmode”)
I feel stupid…Yes, there is a CC option on the second page…( read before asking: note to self)
The confusion makes sense.
Sometimes we think in larger concepts and the mechanics of getting there escapes us.
I do that “stuff” all - the - time !!!
Its mind warping btn remembering elektron workflow and Pyramid but I am loving Pyramid…straight forward so far…
