Hi everyone, thanks again for all of your input.
Here’s another step forward in the development of this sequencer. We’re excited for you to try it out! We only added it to one beta patch because it changed a bunch…
Download Poly-Odub-SeqPre (stands for Polyphonic Synth + Overdubbing Sequencer w/ Presets)
If you send the patch MIDI clock from external device, the sequencer will quantize the playback length to nearest quarter note of that incoming tempo. If you are not sending clock, the sequence is played back as you recorded it.
You can save/recall 14 independent sequences! They are stored on the keyboard’s white keys. When you first load the patch, the sequencer will be playing from and recording to the low C key - AKA Slot #1.
To change the designated preset key/slot:
- Hold Aux and select a white key. A number (1-14) will then be displayed on screen to indicate this change and you can release Aux and key. If you hold Aux again, you will see that the function keys reflect that change. For example, if you set the record/playback destination to #7 (low B key) the sequencer controls along the left column will have ‘7’ as the prefix. If you change the sequence destination/slot, the prefix will change.
- Press Aux + Function Key 2 (low D# key) to Record a new sequence to your selected slot. The sequences are autosaved as soon as you end recording by pressing Aux.
The sequencer now supports overdubbing! (@wannop!) It works like this:
- Select your record destination from one of the 14 white keys (explained in Addition #1 above)
- Optional: Use Aux + Function Key 2 (low D# key) to Record a new sequence. Recording starts as soon as you play a note, send a note from external MIDI device, or turn a knob. Press Aux to end recording.
- When you’re ready to record an overdub on top of an existing recording, press Aux and low G# key (Function Key 4) to overdub. The sequence starts playing from the beginning and any new activity is recorded. Press Aux to end overdub. You may shorten the original by pressing Aux before the sequence loops. You may make the overdubbing longer than the original if you let it loop before pressing Aux.
You may overdub notes, knob adjustments, or both.
Overdubs are saved when you end recording. You may overdub as many times as you like. If there is MIDI clock from external source present, the length of playback of overdubbed recording will be quantized to nearest quarter note. If no clock, playback length will be as you recorded it.
Here’s a video demonstrating the overdub process:
Note: this video was made before the storage of 14 sequences was implemented so the Aux Function menu will look different than on the patch you download.
