I am very curious about OctaEdit!
I think the more I do this, the easier it will be. It is a lot of stuff to memorize at first, that’s for sure!
Next up, I want to put everything into Arranger to switch tempos for each song. Once that’s calculated (how many bars are each of the songs, etc), I still need to get clear on how to exit Arranger mode to work on additional samples/sequences to spice things up. I realize I made things harder than they needed to be with better planning, but it is what it is. If I can feel solid about all that in a few days time, I may investigate some live, on the fly sampling opportunities to challenge myself
