I’m trying to figure out shifting time signatures on the Pyramid and was wondering if one of you expert users has any suggestions. I am trying to replicate something I can do with the Roland SE-02 sequencer, which is dynamically change the end step of the sequence. So if I have an 8 step sequence, I can change it to 6 steps in real time, play a few bars in 3/4, then change it back to 8 steps, and the original 8 steps play as programmed (no data was lost).
For the Pyramid, if I want to shift between 4/4 and 3/4 in real time, I can see how I could do that with one track in a couple of ways:
- In polyrhythm mode, by holding down the encoder while changing track length (say from 1 bar to 3/4 of a bar)
- In polymeter mode, by changing the time signature from 4/4 to 3/4
However I’m interested in doing this for all currently playing tracks at once.
The only solution I’ve thought of is where I pre-program 4/4 and 3/4 versions of all the tracks and then use sequence mode to mute all the 4/4 tracks and unmute all the 3/4 ones. I’m hoping there is something easier. Any ideas?
