I have a song that plays a given note on a trigger. On the second playthrough, I want the same trigger to play a different note. Can I do this with the same track? I can’t seem to get the note to just change using a condition without the condition applying to the whole trigger (I hope that makes sense)
No, not technically. But there’s a workaround! So say you have a note on step one with a 1:2 Trig Condition, you can then put a different note on step two and microtime it all the way back so that it overlaps with step one, then put a Trig Condition of 2:2. This is just an example and you can use whatever combination of Trig Conditions, of course. Also, if you want three notes, then microtime a note ahead of the first one
Same principle, but for the microtimed trig you can use /PRE, so that the 2nd note is true when the first one is false. That way it works with % conditions.
Awesome guys, thank you very much!
I think I tried this with % trc, in order to have 3 randomed notes, but IIRC the attack of the first of the 3 notes was audible. Note 3 cuts the others.
Step 16, microtiming +23, note 1, 33%
Step 01, microtiming 000, note 2, /PRE
Step 02, microtiming -23, note 3, 33%
I’m interested in a better solution!
Maybe another track with NEI on step 02 ?
Oh no. That’s a shame. I’ve never tried it myself, but I guess it makes sense because the trigs are not directly on top of each other in terms of sequencer ticks. Feature request!
I use this technique quite often on my AK and OT, usually only two notes which never caused any issues, although I think it also worked with three notes.
I didn’t find a way to add a 3rd note without cutting one of the 2 others, causing a click.
Just tried with DN, previously tried with OT.
It’s possible to alternate them regularly without click though.
Step 01, microtiming 000, note 1, 1:3
Step 02, microtiming -23, note 2, 2:3
Step 16, microtiming +23, note 3, 2:3
That’s usually the way I do it, just stretching out the 64 steps with A:B conditions.
Edit; the third note would have a 3:3 condition
Never tried with %TRCs.
Not in above case . Note 3 is played on the same pattern iteration as note 2, but 1 pattern length after, because it’s at the end.
In this case, yes :
Step 04, microtiming +23, note 1, 1:3
Step 05, microtiming 000, note 2, 2:3
Step 06, microtiming -23, note 3, 3:3
Ahh, I see. Need moar coffee^^
