Im not really into song modes. ( I dont use on any of the boxes i have that support it )
however, I’ve been considering a (related) idea for orac for a while,
which can supply this functionality, but with a unique twist that utilises the modular nature of orac.
its called meta sequencing.
the basic idea is to use one sequencer to automate one or more others sequencers.
(whats cool, is that all the sequencers we are talking about can be different types)
basically to do this, actually requires a few things i want/need to do anyway.
turn the sequence data an orac ‘resource’ , allow different timebases for sequencers, improve sync options on sequencers, utilise the new modulation bus.
(btw: Im not claiming this is unique, this is kind of what you would do on a eurorack modular)
anyway, Im not sure any of this falls into Patricks request for ‘5 minute tweaks’ changes to existing C&G patches.
because even if doing in seq 2 quickly, it needs quite a bit of work due to sync requirements - but perhaps Im wrong.
anyway, sorry for small OT post, but perhaps it provides inspiration, by giving an insight how I’ll solve this in Orac.
