Not only that, it doesn’t seem to record pitch bends and mod wheel moves when using a controller to play in lines either, which frankly sucks a whole lot of ass. This combined with its poor timing in recording lines with grace notes and other actual playing, even in unquantized recording, kind of pisses me off a bit. Not everyone uses this equipment to play four-on-the-floor dance music. I thought I was basically buying a synth module that would record my lines verbatim, but I guess showing it off with a keyboard hooked up at NAMM was just to illustrate that you can hunt and peck a bassline with your index fingers.
I suppose recording pitch/mod would mean trigless locks on every empty step and a bunch of stepping. Kind of a fundamental flaw in the Elektron sequencer, considering that French upstart Squarp has immaculate resolution alongside step sequencing in their not-terribly-expensive Pyramid.
