Yesterday evening, while jamming with a friend, my Monomachine was acting very strangely.
Like no sound when arp was on.
Or if I was trying to while live recording.
So today I took the time to investigate what was the problem.
I made two discoveries, and they are not minor to me.
In GLOBAL > CONTROL > MIDI CHANLS there are quite a few parameters which I don't understand all.
I remember I had very awkward behavior with arps when not setting CHANNEL SPAN, for instance.
But here, I figured I had been using MULTI MAP CHANNEL instead of AUTO TRACK CHANNEL.
The later makes it possible to play the track from an external keyboard, which I always do.
But MULTI MAP CHANNEL makes it possible to play the sequence from the start, each time you hit a key, with the new pitch set by this key !
Not working on BBOX for some reason, but I'm so glad to find one of OP-1 sequencer hidden in my MM !!
So I've been playing with it for a while, trying to record some decent lines and sampling it in the OT.
At some point, some incredible arp was playing (with Space enhancing the MM sound, it was lovely).
Took me some time to understand I had set the ARP to SID, and I was in poly mode...
Every chord I had been playing was adding to the sequence of the ARP, while the Monomachine sequencer was not running !
So weird and beautiful...
I fell in love again with this incredible machine.
If you love it too, get a decent reverb on its back, it gives it wings !
