Legato/slides
« on: July 26, 2020, 06:29:38 AM »
I'm trying to make some acid style sequences on the pro 3, is there any way to get the notes to slide in the classic 303 way? The manual doesn't suggest it's possible... Would seem to be a bit of an oversight on a synth that's so heavily built around the 16 beat sequencer? Any ideas? I feel like there must be a complex workaround but I didn't want to bother if there's an easy way. Can't quite figure it out.

Thanks all!

You can set the glide amount. In fact you can even set the glide per oscillator. But I donít think itís possible to do 303 slides since glide is not a mod destination and you can tie 2 notes that arenít the same.

Strangely not many people seem to even bring it up, but itís a pretty basic function. Iím not even an acid kind of guy but Iíve sent a request for note ties.

Yeah that's what I figured. Quite a frustrating oversight tbh. Seems really strange as I imagine it is possible to do it over midi - I had hoped there might have been a way to set the sequencer notes duration over 100% but couldn't work it out. The only thing I can think is to set the pitch tracking over the oscillators individually over a different channel but I think that will be quite fiddly to get right. I guess I can make a feature request

I wonder if maybe the sequencer architecture can't support it for one reason or another... Its the only reason I can think that something so relatively basic wouldn't be implemented  :-\

Might be as simple as just allowing the duration control to go to 101%...?

+1 for this request.

Another option would be a quantized tracking feature for pitch modulations of oscillators, but I agree I think note duration would be the simpler/more intuitive from a UI perspective. Does anyone know if its possible on the pro 2? How does it work there if so?

Ha, I posted the same question on the Pro3 FB group.  This stumped me on the very first sequence I tried to create
 (and it wasnít a 303 riff!).  I was sure i was missing something!
