I couldn’t find anyone talking about this or find it in the manual:
I like to finger drum on the octa, either triggering different tracks on trig buttons 9-16 or by finger drumming slices.
I finger drum with slices (or tracks) set to play the slice only for as long as I hold my finger on the trig button. Maybe the slice will have a little shaker section on it that lasts a full beat (with the shaker sounding four times on that beat), but I only momentarily hit it so that I can vary the number of shaker hits in real time. Some taps are long, some are short.
When I record to octa’s sequencer, though, it doesn’t seem to be registering the length of my presses anywhere. It’s just a trig, meaning that it plays the whole length of the slice.
I know I can adjust playback settings to increase or decrease the hold time or set a manual length by choosing “time” in the length field in playback settings, or plock the length of slices on individual trigs, but I don’t want to do that. I just want the octa to capture that organic performance into the sequencer, note length information and all. Is this possible?
Thanks in advance!
