Individual step lenght of sequencer tracks?

Individual step lenght of sequencer tracks?
« on: April 14, 2019, 05:07:01 AM »
Hi,

enjoying my Pro 2 sequencer (apart from little issues...)

How do I set up individual step lenght of different sequencer tracks?
The manual says itīs possible, but not exactly how...

Like for example having a normal 16 step sequence on track 1, and another sequence on track 2 with MIDI Out as destination (to an external synth), that only has like 12 steps?

So far I can only do it with a strange workaround:
When I record a normal sequence into Track 1 with 9 steps, then Track 2 also has 9 steps.
But if I go back to track 1 now again, and record a new sequence with 6 steps, then Track 2 remains with 9 steps.
But how can I control the number of steps for each sequence track?

EDIT: the behaviour all seems a bit random...now I can not reproduce the behaviour described above, but the sequence on Track 2 always stays the same when I change Track 1. I had it already before, that the sequence of Track 2 jumps to only 1 step lenght, when I re record a sequence on Track 1 (could recreate that behaviour again neither...)

Thanks for any help!
Timm

Hold the step which you wish to set as the last step in the sequencer, and press the RESET button to set the length of a sequence.

To note, if the reset point of track 1 is set to a different value and no other sequencer track has had its reset point set independently, then all sequences will follow track 1 with respect to its reset point.  Once any other track than track 1 has had its reset point changed, then all sequences' reset points can be independently set to unique values.

To revert all reset points to the end of sequence, hold the 1-16 or 17-32 button and press the RESET button.

Hope this helps!
