I try no to use any reload function in first place.
Then I use a patch I did in Max that makes snapshots of the main parameters of my boxes, then instead of “reloading” I do recall snapshots and all stay in sync.
More info in case you wonder
pattern, track mutes, track level, active scene, performance levels.
pattern, track mutes, track levels, performance knobs.
Snapshot is recalled using midi notes (if you set a negative micro timing for the first step, parameters are changed in advance so you don´t miss step 1)
there are 32 “banks” of 16 snapshot each (will be more banks)
bank is selected with the note velocity and snapshot with note value, this way you can place on a MIDI track on the Octatrack, one note with a fixed velocity on the first step, then use the arranger to transpose it, this way you can launch any snapshot using a single pattern trough the arranger, or use the OT keyboard.
I will add an option to link snapshots to OT A´s selected scene.
I also added a link to the OT crossfader. Any of the controlled parameters can be modulated with the OT crossfader, positively or negatively. My algorithm is relative so there won’t be jumps or anything, all adapts very well so far.
Also you can use the OT crossfader to mute unmute tracks. Basically the OT fader is divided in three posible states, A, B and “in the middle”, each of this positions can Mute, Umute or ignore any track from the RYTM or the AF. The same approach was added to RTYM scenes so you can have 3 scenes per snapshot to control them with the OT crossfader if you need them.
All parameters can be recalled instantly, quantised. or ignored. So for example you can set a snapshot to mute RYTM track 1 and set Analog four track to level to 64, and the app will do just that leaving the rest untouched, this give you a lot of freedom to improvise but at the same time helps with key points of your Live.
As soon I finish this stage I will put it public then if all works as expected I will start the hardware part with Push and the Launchpad
