Really? For things like volume or filter cutoff too? I’m really curious of what scenarios you’d rather have the parameters abruptly change rather than smoothly.
yes indeed i can see how this is a matter of taste, and I never enjoyed the implementation of slides on any Elektron machine, so I guess it’s a area that needs work regardless of anyone’s needs
I really enjoy the rhythmic element that stepped modulation introduces, but again I can also see how some users might want to favour smooth modulation. an option to switch between behaviours would be ideal
An option would be best, but that rhythmic choppy effect you speak of is only interesting occasionally imo. Smooth parameter changes seems much more useful to me.
essentially, i see step modulation as a way to create a rhythm where there wasn’t one before.
not sure if that makes sense, but it’s the easiest explanation i can think of.
i’m not saying i don’t - also - use smooth modulation, but nothing rocks my boat quite like stepped modulation of cutoff frequency of a filter on the brink of self - oscillation
edit : “different strokes for different folks” is what they say right ? options are always a good way to keep “everyone” happy !!
After all that work they’ve put into making the digital filter smooth and not steppy?
Jk, I respect your point of view.
Yes, smarter snapping would be a great boon. I’d like pitch to snap to useful values 1,2,3,4,5,7,9,12 rather than 0,12,24 or whatever it is.
Same, I also want a pony slide.
Have you messed around with parameter locking the lfo in oneshot mode for slide type effects? it works actually really well once you get used to the idea of it.
Yeah, that works well for one parameter. The sliding p-locks can really help with additional automation in certain instances. The sliding p-locks are one of the first things that really blew my mind about Elektron when I used the MD for the first time right when they came out.
the zooming feature in the waveform editor window is really missing. Octatrack is far superior here. Also with it’s possibility to hold function and set to zero crossing points… It’s really hard for me on the DT to be precise.
It’s such a great feature on the OT. Shouldn’t be difficult to add on the DT then, right?
the as is non-discreet parameter changes would work great with set scales & the pitch parameter… if we had set scales
Hi! I am new here in the forum. I hope, it is ok, if I just list some features I would love to have, even if they might have been posted somewhere above…
Well, that looks only like a lot
There is no midi re-trig on OT. Wish it had it as well as DT.
Oh, I forgot about some improvements to the conditional trigs:
there is. I used it a lot lately
OT has midi “trig counts”, similar to retrigs but different… Max 8, equally spaced within the step…
No retrigger parameter, but same trig counts as in the audio tracks.
This time I believe you
Thanks for this!!!
If its like the audio retrigs on mnm md ot or even dt ar styles then great (cant find it) but if its not…then it dont exist yo
(Not a fan of the dt ar style. md mnm ot style is the best, with lfo assigment…its the shit!)
