I have the following behaviour I do not understand.
I want play an 8 bar sample on a plays free track using a flex machine. I have set scale per pattern, track scale 64/64, multiplier 1/2; master track scale 128 (otherwise the sample will not play the full 8 bars)
Pattern settings are plays free, trig mode = one2, trig quant= track length
I set a normal trig on bar 1/beat 1.
I start the sequencer.
When I hit the track play trig to launch the plays free track during the first (or any odd) run of 64 bars, it’ll start on the 65th, and the sample will retrigger each time the track loops, until I push the track play trig again. That’s what I expected.
When I hit the track play trig to launch the plays free track during the second (or any even) run of 64 bars, it’ll start at beat 129, the sample is played only once, the track keeps on running but the sample isn’t retriggered anymore on successive loops. I see the sequencer running (the trig button animation runs, as well as the page leds) but the track status has the “stopped” square. I can see the sequencer running past the trig and not firing the sample.
It’s just like if I had set a one-shot trig at beat 1, but I didn’t.
What am I doing wrong?
EDIT: I tried all sort of settings for the trig quant in pattern settings: all work as expected, EXCEPT if I have the track start on the 1st beat of every even (2nd, 4th, 6th) loop of 64 beats . Example: if I set trig quant to 16/16 and hit the track play trig during the last 4 beats of an odd (1st, 3rd, 5th) loop, the track will start and play as expected, but the sample will behave as a one-shot
EDIT 2: When I set the trig on the second beat, no problem. When I microtime the trig -/384, no problem. I’ll use that as a workaround. It works OK as long as the sequencer is running but it’s a bit strange and looks like a bug…
