Thank you for the reply, but…
However, if you don’t mind a little feedback…
One Shot LFOs:The “O” in LFO is Oscillator…? A one shot…well, you can achieve the effect you describe by creating a second Track (remember, you have 64 and only 3 ports!) with the series of CC msgs you want and set it Run Mode: Trig in the [2nd]+[Track] screen.
Response - This is a useful application but does not seem to be what I am looking for. The ability to add a trig in a track to start an LFO (we all know what they are…) so that it can be used as a crude envelope instead of the need to create multiple Sequences to create a work around. Look into the Elektron Monomachine for how this is implemented and how useful it can be
Half Cycle LFO’s: The LFO Effect sends out MIDI CC’s in a range from 0 to 127. They don’t send a negative values. I’m not sure what you are expecting to achieve, but I’m assuming all of this can be rectified in your synth patch. (ie Pyramid sends a CC value, it’s up to the synth what it does with that value)
Response - the vast majority of LFOs are digital in our synths and there are some that can do half cycle LFOs. This chops the waveform in half essentially so with a sine you would only get the top half of the waveform. Again, Elektron Monomachine has this ability and it is rather useful for sound design.
Envelopes: See the first response see first response to your response - same applies
More than 16 Synth Definitions: Yeah, that’s a very common request! I don’t use them myself, but I understand how many people find them handy. I would love the ability to fully use them
CC Step Sequence Adjustable: I have no idea what you’re suggesting, but you can use the Elektron LFO’s with the Pyramid. For a while I had my OT sending CC LFO’s that were routed around like a popular tennis ball at a doggie day care. So…best of both worlds! If you mean a way to adjust parameters of the LFO per step, that’s completely doable currently in the Pyramid under Step Mode: Effects Stepmode. Further, using a loopback you can apply Pyramid CC LFO data sending out on a Track, or Note to CC, or even just draw CC Ramps to send out/loopback/modulate any MIDI FX on a different Track. Easy peasy with a BomeBox even, esp if you don’t have an available Pyramid MIDI Port.
Response - With a stand alone sequencer I am looking to NOT have to use other sequencers to get what I want done. Of course I will if need be, but this should be a simple addition. You state that you own an OT (so do I) and the OT allows you in the user diffinable / custom LFOs to adjust just the front or back side of a step to allow a smoother transition to a desired cc value. Yes this can be done with the draw feature, but it is not as precise or as user friendly (at least as of now… I know i will get more used to it). Being able to have step modulation with say 1 of those being ramped is again quite useful for sound design and implementing 1 or 2 of the 4 unused knobs in CC edit mode to accomplish this would be great - “Hold a trig, turn knob 3 to set value for that step, turn knob 2 to adjust ramp up to value, turn knob 4 to adjust ramp down for that step” as an idea.
Round Robin: I’m assuming you mean to increment which MIDI Channel the data is sent on. That would seem to me an uncommon implementation and precisely what MTPro and a Bome Box is for.
Response - Agreed it is uncommon, but mostly because it is not implemented in more hardware and people do not know it is an option. Using it to turn, say, the Digitakt into an 8 voice poly synth with scwf on each track is a powerful tool. I use this technique with my Monomachines nearly every day as it allows me to use them to create sounds with more movement and depth than with the unit alone. And with the midi data / processing going on in the Pyramid, I would think something this simple would be a rather easy add
Enjoy your dive! Oh man, I will. One night with it and I am hooked. I am a sequencer head and this one is almost perfect for me. Almost!
