I have the “missing first note” issue when playing pattern chains in SEQ mode when I have a note on the first beat, quantizer on, and HUMAN- in the quantizer set to some non-zero value. Sometimes the first note plays, and sometimes it doesn’t. I speculate it’s because the HUMAN- setting is sometimes setting the note to sound early and so doesn’t get played when a new sequence starts. If I set HUMAN- to zero, the first note always plays.
IIUC, the HUMAN settings are supposed to cause variations in the timing, so it kind of makes sense that a note at 1.1.0 might get moved to an earlier time and so might not play when that sequence is switched to. That said, it definitely seems wrong that something as fundamental as a kick drum on beat 1 would sometimes not happen. I would hope they could make the sequence chaining function smart enough to allow the first note of the next sequence to occur early. Alternatively, they could make the humanize function never make the first note earlier.
I sent a bug report to Squarp a week or so ago with steps to reproduce this issue, but haven’t heard anything back from them.
But the above discussions about CCs and PC makes me wonder whether the HUMAN settings in the quantizer are applied only to notes, or to any/all kinds of data. Anyone know the answer?
