hello elektronauts! i’d appreciate your hints on how you create long melodic/harmonic patterns on elektron sequencers. i find it frustratingly difficult to come up with some evolving pattern.
sounds like 128 steps master len, 1/8 scale on track for example + live recording, but then you have to wait full cycle each time to make precise adjustments or put plocks. pattern chains? there’s no way to stack first pattern several times if i need to in that case. start scattering notes in arrange mode? well, it’s ok on OT but there’s DN next to it which i don’t always want to follow OT’s program change (still sound like the best option so far, still a little tedious).
how do you do this? let it be another topic on workflow for rather slow (but not drone/ambient) melodic/evolving music on elektron boxes.
EDIT: i don’t mean ‘slow’ in terms of bpm, or stuck one-note drones with heavy modulations, it’s more about temperate non-repetitive harmonic progressions and melodic phrases
