I figured it would be good to share any tips and tricks for Hermod.
[edit: the latest OS adds functionality within Settings > Clock to do this properly]
I’ll kick things off… want an adjustable tempo / clock divider? Need a gate to go high when Hermod is running and low when it’s not (eg; for sequencers like Metropolis or Tempi?)… read on.
Create a Modulation track. Add a Gate that runs the length of the pattern. Unfortunately, the Gate always momentarily goes low when the sequence loops which will mess with your sequencer, here’s how to fix that. Add an Arpeggiator effect and set the Gate within the effect to 100. Now when you start Hermod the Gate goes High and when you stop the Gate goes Low.
To add a clock to the track simply add a LFO effect, set it to Square and sync’d. You can get up to 16PPQN resolution with this when it’s set to 1/64. You can then also use the Mod Matrix / manually control the LFO to divide that down (or up).
What tips you got?
