Thanks, yeah – I think that's the intended solution. To be honest, I can't think of a better way quickly, myself...
A few feature requests that I already sent them:
-Looping of sections of tracks (I know they're working on it)
-Percentage quantization, as in Elektrons
-A simple way to delete note/CC data but not FX and other stuff... 2ND+Delete in Live mode would seem intuitive.
-A way to make the shortcuts "sticky": You know, press NOTE WIDTH in step mode, and you have a couple of seconds/until you press NOTE WIDTH again to make your note width adjustments.
But don't get me wrong... I'm actually pretty amazed by the amount of possibilities I have with this box.
-It's so so nice to be able to draw curves with the XY pad for a change, instead of P-locking stuff.
-It's very very nice to not worry about 64 steps (or 128/whatever with reduced sequencer resolution). I'm trying to get my head around the possibilities when combining things like 64 bar loops and 1 bar loops – you're able to do neat semi-loop stuff like that, easily.
-I need to think of the best way to record CC's. It'd be nice to be able to use the Elektrons' encoders – that way, I wouldn't have to map stuff in the Pyramid, just hit record and twiddle the Elektrons' knobs. But at least for now, I'd like to have the option to use the Elektron's sequencer alongside the pyramid... Which makes it a bit of a cluster**** with things like local control, MIDI feedback loops and all that. There's many sensible ways to do this, but I'm just trying to figure out the best way for me
-It's pretty cool to sequence notes from the Pyramid, CC's from the Elektron. Do things like 16 bar melodies with a 1-bar filter modulation loop.
-Once you start thinking of stuff like 2 tracks of notes, two tracks of midi CC assigned to one MIDI channel, along with P-locked midi effects, your head really starts to hurt
-CHORDS. I'm able to sequence stuff like slightly off-time arpeggio-ish chords, whereas on an Elektron it's always bam, four notes starting at the exact same time.
Of course, workflow is everything in a box like this, but so far I haven't found anything that's very annoying or limiting. It's very much a two-hand box, though, with all the button combinations.
I'm thinking of doing a video. There's so so little info about this box. Just have to find some time – Christmas Schristmas...
