So I am perplexed by a couple of things on my MD at the moment. Could you wonderful people shine the light of knowledge for me.
The first drives me insane. I sit and program drums. I’ve chosen each hit and I’ve got a pattern that I like swinging away. I got into more fetch and start eq’ing… then plocking… and wow it sounds great. Ok, I’ll move this to my main sequencer… the OT… and add some microtiming and trigs (what’s it called… itwas in the latest OT update) to add even more variation. And then it happens… I press a certain key on my main midi keyboard… the DX7… and to my dismay… a new pattern starts to play… all of the sounds have been replaced with new sounds and I have been rendered into torment and enraged profanities color the room leaving me in the 5th Circle of Hell according to Dante.
Please help me out!
Secondly, the sampling. I don’t get it. I tried it once and didn’t get along with it. How do you guys utilize the sampling feature? I’d love to know more about this. I’ll happily read and experiment. I intend on using this feature heavily in the future when the planets align and allow me to make the dreams that are in my head a reality.
Thanks again, people of Planet Elektron
