So I am working on a live set using the digital trinity (OT, MD & MnM), and have a real issue with running out of space.
I am sequencing the MD from the OT for polyrhythm madness, and have hit a problem. I’ve run out of patterns!
Let me explain: the OT is sending program change to both machines. once I get to bank H pattern 16 I’m out of room (the MD and MnM both loop back to A1 when OT moves on to i1). My MnM has a +drive, so I figure I’ll just load a new snapshot while the OT fills in, but there is no +drive on the MD. The only method I know of for selecting kits on the MD is by attaching them to patterns and relying on program change messages.
Is there a sneaky way of selecting kits via midi from the OT without being tied to the pattern count?
