I suggest & would like to see an update for the Elektron sequencer to be able to do 128 and up to 256 steps. That would make much more easy to make long and nice sequences within Elektron and sequencing other gear.
I mean, 64 steps is fine for a drum machine and for a bassline, but for other sequencing purposes its a bit limited… say some nice arps, evolving pads, texture sounds… that’S where the 64 steps are limited af…
Old MPC’s 2k 1k etc can do 1024 afaik. Why not implement that, it must be a line of code for the new gear, add shortcut like FUNC+SCALE+WTVR and there you go, doubled steps once for 128, twice for 256 in ex.
There is a workaround that I have been using: chain patterns… but it’s less than ideal and it uses up a precious pattern slot… specially for live acts.
I would suggest that firm update for following gear:
DT, DTone, OT, AR, A4… & if possible old gear like MnM & MD. (y, i own all of those boxes)
plz. do it. yesterday. Fanxxx gang
EDIT: btw electribes have this feature and they are exactly 20 years old!!
