@garf I usually use Event Processor Plus, the simpler I have. RK002 can do much more. I’d like a bome box too!
I found another approach, using a keyboard with quantized arp, with a gate parameter (shortest notes setting).
Longer release, Microtiming, plocks on osc 1 pitch, noise, filter, osc 2 pitch (metal sync).
Sorry for the sound, I needed my usb cable for the keyboard so I couldn’t record with DN!
The arp isn’t set with octave, the plocks do it.
For some reasons it didn’t work with 4 notes.
I don’t get the principle you are implying. MIDI notes are incoming, which in the aforementioned use case say nothing about CC. So it’s perfectly desirable to use trigless trigs to manipulate the MIDI notes. I wanted to do this before, in fact it’s the natural thing to do - the automated version of tweaking knobs while being played by MIDI.
In elektron world, if you play a note from an external source exactly on time with lock trig/trigless trig in a sequence the plocks will be ignored on that step as the external control overrides the sequencer. Does not matter whether it’s note or cc data. It does not function the same as playing while twisting knobs.
it can easily be worked around by micro timing the plocks so they come slightly after the note is played.
In my experience, This is how the analogs, silver boxes, and digis behave.
Digitone can be sequenced from an external sequencer and trigless locks will be retained.
I don’t own a Digitone, but I’ve tested it once on a DTone and there are also posts on this forum that confirm this.
Some people say otherwise, though, which is kinda strange…
IIRC it was @Microtribe who first told me this was possible.
Yeah I’ve done it, it does work but sometimes you have to move the micro step a bit early or late to get it to work… maybe that’s why others say I doesn’t work because the trig wasn’t exactly on the start of the note
Indeed. A midi note length depends on when its NOTE OFF message is received. If it’s not received, the note is infinite / stuck.
NOTE ON messages are identical whether the note is short or long (using with same note number / velocity of course).
I’d check with a midi monitor what could explain that.
