Hi, sorry to revive an old discussion but it seems to be relevant to my questions.
Brand new Elektron user here - I’ve skimmed this thread but a lot of the talk comparing the Digi’s system to the other boxes’ has gone over my head, so…
Let’s say I want to break into a section where I have a different bassline and groove. I copy into a new pattern & make the changes. No problem - until I want to “mix” the whole tune a bit; soften the attack on the kick, slightly pull a clap out of the reverb send, adjust the panning of a pad with LFO depth. Do I seriously have to copy and paste each and every change that I want made globally over to every other pattern manually?
Also - If I have a short pattern chain where I want to jam and gradually open the filter on a pad over the course of a few cycles - I can’t do that? The parameter values keep snapping back to where they left off in each pattern.
I get the benefit of having settings and sounds be independent for each pattern and with all the conditional and performance tools a “4 bar” pattern can develop and stay interesting for ages but I’m really hoping I can hold down a button combo for a “global/session per-track parameter change excluding p-locks” or something because switching between patterns to jam or chain arrangements on the fly while tweaking parameters is one of the main reasons I wanted to step away from a DAW - I didn’t for a second think a performance oriented sampler like the Digi would put be unable to do this and I definitely like to mix as I go when building the patterns too.
I’d be grateful if anyone would kindly shed light on a feature I’m missing or suggest a decent workaround. Many thanks in advance!
