I know that double tapping the stop button when the sequencer is stopped will do it, but is there any way to accomplish the same thing when the sequencer is running? I’ve had a pretty good look through the manual and I am guessing no (other than PLocking all of the values on step 1 of a sequence, not ideal since there are 14 parameters spread across three different drum voices but it’s a last resort option) but I’d love to be proven wrong.
I’ve started sequencing the drum section in my Anushri from the OT and there are a lot of drum synthesis parameters that can only be accessed by CC on the drum channel. Unfortunately, tweaking any of the handful of front panel controls, directly or via CC on the main control channel, resets ALL of the drum parameters that were tweaked via CC, including the sample rate reduction that sounds really good (Why, Mutable? Why did you do that?). I’d love to have a way to tweak the drum controls on the Anushri itself live and then quickly resend all of the CC values from the OT to get it back to whatever custom drum sounds I had programmed via MIDI, without having to stop the sequencer or PLock all of my drum sound edits and then wait for that step to come around again.
This is one of those times when I wish there was a small, cheap standalone device that would let you save a bunch of MIDI macros with arbitrary CC and Sysex data and then fire them out in real time from a simple interface. Basically like an Alesis Datadisk except small and geared toward live performance. I’d buy something like that instantly.
