i might just be approaching this completely wrong and confusing myself. but i’m a little stumped on the proper workflow for moving from section to section of songs with the Pyramid.
i imagined having a base starter file, always have the 16 tracks in first view going to their designated synth/drum machine MIDI channel. ie -
Pad 1 Elektron Cycles
Pad 2 Korg XD
Pad 3 1010 Black Box
then set each pad to the correct MIDI channel for the device, always know that when i started a project 1 is Cycles, 2 is XD, 3 is BB and so on.
but that ends up giving no room for variations on a 16 Track view. right now i have 1-14 set to their default destinations, so…
start a new song, write a drum part for Cycles on Pad 1, a melody for XD on pad 2, a sample changing start points on pad 3… do i go to the next bank for alternate beats or melodies? that seems like it would get messy.
is it just a bad idea to work from a Everything Has It’s Place file? do most people start and just add parts to each pad as they go? how do you keep track of what is where?
any advice appreciated.
