How do I play/launch tracks unsynced/manually, inpedendent of the sequencer? Similar to the Octatracks “Plays free” mode.
I have tried to find an answer to this far and wide, but not sure if my search terminology is simply lacking.
I was sure that this was a core functionality of the Pyramid, but now I’m not so sure anymore.
pyramid doesn’t really allow you to stop/start tracks.
rather it has the ability to :
decide upon synchronisation of these actions.
so… generally tracks are always ‘running’, and they are synchronised.
and you can just mute them so you don’t ‘hear’ them
so when a track is in free mode, if you unmute it, it will play from its current play position.
but if you switch it to (eg) trig mode , when you unmute it, it will restart.
(so it kind of a bit like free mode, but its operating pretty different really)
on top of this setting contain various options for synchronisation , e.g. does an unmute happen immediately , or is it synchronised to a bar/beat etc.
as I say, a very different principle to the Octatrack… but depending on your exact requirements you may find it can be used similarly with 'trig mode" (>1) - but it won’t be identical, as its a very different type of sequencer. (hence my long winded explanation )
