Happy New Year! Any news about the arpegio synth shifting problem?

Hi @jani and Everyone!

We just released some big changes in these beta patches!

Please see the additional information on my first post to this topic (now updated).

Let us know how it goes!

Hey Chris, c&g, thanks a lot for the updates, now the arp synth works really well!
you have to be pretty exact when doing some sort of sixteenth or eights single notes sequences with rests and stuff. but it works!!! the arpeggio synth is very inspiring for me as a generator of cool syncopated bass lines or melodies on the fly… the new aux button function is so cool and the updates of your other 2019 are really sounding very musically!
There is one thing at the moment i’m thinking of… would it be possible to have an option in the note quantization menu for leaving the notes unquantized? so that the sequence is triggering the arpeggio 1:1 as like it was while recording… when it comes to playback sometimes single notes are shifted in the sequence because of that grid quantization maybe? so when the sequence plays, it would then trigger the notes of the arp just as they were played like while recording and the there is no confusion on playback maybe, or am i thinking wrong? the grid quantize option would be also nice for the other 2019 seq patchces… would it be possible to implement that menu like in the arp, maybe with more different options for meters? many questions… but it’s so cool as it is right now!!

very cool! seems to be working much better now.
I also really like the extended options on aux button

thanks so much for this it’s gonna be great fun!

this makes syncing to other gear so much easier and expands possibilities amongst a bigger setup :slight_smile:

however, I think it’s more difficult to use this sequencer to create simple useable loops standalone - without other gear. I usually use my organelle with my laptop or with an octatrack - but there are a lot of users out there who I think would usually use their organelle standalone.
The visual aid of the blinking aux led is good, but without hearing the ticks of the internal metronome or being able to alter it from 120 - it is difficult to guarantee a sequence will play as the user intended

e.g. if the user gets an idea for a sequence to play along to a guitar part someone is playing during a jam and their friend is playing somewhere around 129bpm. The organelle sets the start and end record points according to a mismatching 120bpm tempo and accidentally gets the loop length slightly, irreparably off.

think this still needs a fix of some kind.

  • could one of the aux+black key functions set an internal tap-tempo, with eat hit restarting the internal metronome as well as refining the calculation of bpm - this metronome could be overridden if a midi or link clock is detected.
  • aux+black key = audible metronome?
  • or maybe just an on/off of quantisation, off by default for the benefit of standalone users and new users?

These updates are stellar!

One thing I notice is Analog Style resonance is different from original patch.
Love the laser sounds though, so may be cool to leave this one avail as Analog EG and make a version where resonance sounds like it does on original?

Also what great choices for the built in samples - looooove it :smiley:

I imagine this is prob not possible with how this patch/sequencer works, but it’d be super cool down the road to have a similar sequencer that can also quantize the note inputs when recording (or better yet to have the option to quantize or not, both during and after recording!)

Also (guessing you guys are on this but just to say) would be cool to have latch function available at the same time as record.

edit: actually, the 2019 arpeggio synth is having some issues with sync when receiving transport (seems like maybe the metronome isn’t resetting?) - the earlier version works perfectly though.
