New in the latest version of Entrian Sequencers is Step Recording, which lets you record a sequence one note at a time, at your own pace.
To record a melody or a drum groove step-by-step:
- Connect a MIDI-CV module to the recording inputs.
- Enable Record and disable Run.
- Now, when you hit a note on your keyboard / drum pads / whatever, that note will be added at the playhead position and the playhead will move forwards by the quantisation amount, ready for the next note.
- To add a rest, ensure your mouse cursor is hovering over the module and press the spacebar.
You can use repeat markers to mark the section of the clip that you want to step-record into, and when you reach the end marker, the playhead will loop back to the start. That’s how to step-record a polyphonic melody sequence, or a drum groove with multiple instrument hits at the same playhead position (rather than trying to hit two keys at the same time!)
Here’s a short video that demonstrates the feature:
