I read the section below from the manual and got excited. It seems to say that when a scale is selected on the midi Arp screen then all notes on the track will be locked to that scale even when the Arp is turned off.
“Arpeggiated notes and any note offsets can be forced to play according to a given key scale. The F knob sets the key scale. When set to OFF all notes and note offsets will play according to the set notes. This setting will affect the note trigs of the track even if the MODE setting found in the ARPEGGIATIOR MAIN menu is set to OFF”
I think it’s lying
Is there anyway to get this to work as I play the notes on the trigs in chromatic mode?
Lying - Am I correct in understanding that with a scale set in the ARP page and an external keyboard connected via midi, I can play the keys on that keyboard and the notes will be limited to those in the scale? I have a keyboard with local off, midi connected to my OT. I can sequence that keyboard, in key, with no problem. When I use the keyboard to play notes though, they are not in key and not following the scale. Let me know what I’m missing or if I misunderstood your post. Thanks.
It’s too bad it doesn’t work on notes you play on the trig keys, because that’s where it would be the most useful for me - playing trig keys in chromatic mode is really clumsy for me and being able to pitch quantize it would actually make it practical.
