Elektronauts Member @pselodux did a lovely tutorial for how he completed this challenge

Explanation: I wanted to make a challange that would force the participants to to approach the machine in a really dynamic way. One that will force them to take advantage of every Elektron feature. Please share any tricks that you have- the core of this challenge is in performing it.

Laywer’s Note: The title is just a title- this is an equal opportunity challenge.


Clarification please
1 pattern, 1 track, that’s all?


Does this count or do I need to do something new? :smiley:


That’s correct

That works! I believe you made a video explaining how you went about doing that? Would you like me to include that video-URL in the OP?

Go ahead!

what about Arpeggiators? Could I use one pattern and change the arpeggio?

Arp is fine, but the track has to be recorded in one take.

So if you can work some magic on it live- that would be really cool and I can’t wait to hear it

can you be more specific on variations?

That’s just fancy-talk for saying the track has to be more than just a loop
