The manual says: “If an active track in the sequence is set to TRIG, it will play once without looping. If the track is active in the next sequence, it will continue to play just as in FREE run mode.”
I have one track T1 with a pattern T1P1 and one Track T2 with one Pattern T2P1.
T1P1 has a length of 6 bars, T2P1 a length of 4 bars.
T1 is set to free run, T2 is set to TRIG (once).
I have 6 sequences, each a length of 1 bar.
T1 is unmuted on every sequence, T2 is unmuted on SEQ 1 to SEQ 4 and muted on SEQ 5 and SEQ 6.
Seq mode is on loop.
According to the examples in the manual I assumed, that now T1 is started and will be played continuesly, which it does. It repeats after 6 bars, when the song loop starts again.
I also assumed that T2 will start at the beginning (while unmuted) and continue to play through SEQ1 to SEQ 4, then be muted on SEQ 5 and SEQ 6 and then restart with SEQ 1 from start again (unmuted).
BUT the track continues to be played even on the muted SEQ 5 and SEQ 6 (though still muted) and continues to play in a 4 bar loop. This leads to the effect, that it does NOT start on bar 1 when the loop starts with SEQ1, but instead plays bar 3 as next bar on SEQ 1.
This means that T1 plays 6 bars and loops.
T2 plays through the 6 bars (SEQ 1 - SEQ 6): 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 1 (muted) - 2 (muted) and then continues with 3 - 4 - 1 - 2 - 3 (muted) - 4 (muted) and so on.
I tried all combinations of FREE RUN, RELATCH and TRIG, but in all other cases in restarts T2 on EVERY sequence SEQ 1 to SEQ 6.
My idea behind this is, that I will construct my song like in a DAW with sequences, everyone of a 1 bar length and use the tracks/patterns with different bar lenths to be fire (unmuted) on the bars I define. In my opinion this is closest to a typical song construction.
What am I missing here?
