Could I get advice on what I’m trying to do here? I want Phrase-seq-16 to loop, while picking up notes played on a keyboard as it goes, so I change the phrase on the fly.
I found that when I simply triggered the sequencer’s Write from the keyboards Retrig it was hard (impossible) to get the timing right and I didn’t hear the notes at the point of playing them. When the loop came round, the notes were one step out.
I changed it so that the seq’s Write is fired from the clock, but through a VCA run from the keyboard’s Gate. So as long as a key is held down, it’s writing to the sequencer. That works - I hear the notes when played and they appear in the right place. Also I can hold down a note and that clears out the sequence.
Is this overkill? Is there a more elegant way to do this using the phrase-seq-16 settings?
Thanks for any tips.
