Sequencer transpose in Unison
« on: December 24, 2018, 02:53:39 PM »
There has been some chat about the implementation of a transposition feature that would not require the use of the record button.
Having just purchased an OB 6 I have spent the day making patches and am pleasantly surprised to have discovered the firmware updated  sequencer function whereby
If unison is turned on and the sequencer is started you can transpose the playback simply by playing the desired key on the keyboard. Obviously running the sequencer in unison  has limited capabilities but itís great for Bass and percussive sounds.

Iíve checked my Rev 2 but unfortunately this does not seem to work on the Rev 2. I donít have access to a Prophet 6 to test.

Dear Sequential please donít remove this in a future firmware update.

It was a firmware update for both the P6 and OB6. Hopefully both the REV2 and the PX get this as well.

Thanks  I see it listed in the recent firmware. Itís curious though, why only on unison patches ?

I'm just glad we can finally turn on Unison with the Sequencer running now, it was always annoying having to stop playback just to turn on the phat button.  :)

I think it's just the way the voice architecture is set up. I would like to see it in poly mode as well. It should be possible. Maybe in a future update.
