Thanks so much for your reply. I hear everything you say about Pure Data, and I plan to devote a significant chunk of my summer getting into it, as I realize it is definitely the way to make the most use of the Organelle.
In the meantime, I would love to figure out how to tweak the patches that have the built-in sequencer. Ideally, it would not play automatically upon receipt of clock/start messages, but would still be able to play when manually triggered (and in-sync with the next MIDI clock pulse).
I am specifically interested in modifying the patches that have the new v3 version of the sequencer — like Analog Style 2019, Arpeggiator Synth 2019, etc. — as these patches have MIDI functionality that is currently working for me.
I have already tried my hand at tweaking some of the Pure Data files in the Seq v3 folder contained with these patches, and with some success. Although the sequencer still starts upon receipt of MIDI info, there is not any audio coming out of it! This is definitely a big help, but not ideal. I simply tried disconnecting several of the patch lines in Pure Data that seemed to be related to MIDI “play,” etc. and managed to disarm it, but it is not the optimal way to do it, I’m sure.
I totally understand that you can’t hold my hand in this, but if you could perhaps point me in the right direction regarding the most appropriate pd patches to alter, I will be happy to dive in and see if I can figure it out myself. Thanks so much again for your time!
