I got myself a model:cycles because I wanted a drum focused machine with the elektron sequencer to free up tracks on my digitone
I love it to bits, but I’m having 3 small issues/annoyances:
I can’t see anyway to set a ‘performance mode’ like on the digitone, where pressing the track pad will mute/unmute it without needing to press func
when in sequencer mode, I need to press 2 - 3 times on my trigs with parameter locks to disable them, is it possible to disable a trig with locked params in only 1 press ?
and when I’m chaining patterns where tracks have different lengths, It doesn’t wait for the longest track to end its pattern to change to the next pattern
I guess what I want to know is if there are workarounds/solutions for these issues
I will sometimes cheat in a pseudo performance mode behavior by just holding down the pads of the sounds I want muted. This works better with some machines than others and you have to be sensitive to how much pressure you apply. It only kinda works.
Regarding issue number two; I’ve experienced the same inconsistency that @Fin25 mentioned but I feel like it’s improved over time. Maybe there’s a break in period? Still isn’t great though and it’s been almost a year.
man, thanks a lot for the change length thing, that’s excatly what I needed, and it was the most bothersome thing I had with it
No worries, happy to help
I noticed the holding the pad down trick, but in a perfect world, it would be like on the digitone
These aren’t the best work arounds, but if you lock volume/distortion for each trig in a sequence, you can set the volume for the track to zero. Whenever you hold a pad it should mute the track. And you can still use track level for how loud the trigs in the sequence are. You can also fix the pad velocity to 1 and use them that way. You’ll still probably be able to hear the sound but it will be quiet.
Those are the ones I know about. On the Samples, you can also lock your samples in the sequence and choose a bit of silence as the sample for the track.
I think the easiest thing is to just use function + track.
yeah, it’s easier to use function + track
it’s just that it’s making me wish for another hand when palying live with several synths
There is this option: [Model Samples] Mute Mode - #5 by OPZtacle
As others have noted, a quick press is your answer here. One quick press to turn off a note (normal) trig, and two quick presses to turn off a lock trig (first one turns it into a note trig).
