5.3.1 Position Controls (all Step Sequencers)


image

Generally a Pattern can have a max length of 8 Bars, while each Bar can have a length of max 16 Steps.


Note: The Pattern length in Bars as well as the Steps per Bar can be changed on the “Timing & Measure” screen (see Chapter: Timing & Measure).


The graphical editors of the Step Sequencers are limited to 16 Steps, in other words you can show only one Bar at time. Use the Position Controls Left/Right buttons to scroll through the Bars within a Pattern.


The Position LEDs show the Play and Edit position in the pattern.

Note:

To change the Edit or Play Position, the Pattern must have a length greater than 1 Bar. The initial Pattern length is 1 Bar, you can change it on the “Timing & Measure” screen. (see Chapter: Timing & Measure)


Note:

Long click the Loop button to turn the Play/Edit-Position Chain Mode ON/OFF

ON : The Play- and Edit-Position are chained together (Edit-Position follows Play-Position and vice versa)

OFF : The Play- and Edit-Position are independent from each other.


Special behaviour on the Main Drum Machine in Note Edit Mode:


On the Main Drum Machine, if the Note Edit Mode is turned ON, the Position Controls show the current Octave instead of the Edit-Position.
