Sequencer issue, please help if possible.

Hello,

After recording a sequence of say GGGG, on playback of pressing the same G note in normal, gated or trigger mode, the note that the audio of the synth is playing is a tone down and sounds F. This happens on every patch and even just using one oscillator. Does anyone else get this behaviour? Is it a known bug or is it bust?

The sequencer plays back based on a C tonic note.   If you want the sequencer to play in the same key you recorded in, first analyze your recorded sequence to determine the tonic.  In your case, G is your tonic.  G is 7 semitones above C.

Hold down track select, and turn the second soft knob above the screen to turn your G notes into C... ie: Turn it back 7 steps.    Now if you look at your sequence, all your Gs will be Cs - and you can play any keyboard note in Gated mode, and it will play your sequence based on that tonic note.   ie:  if you play the G note, it will play back like you intend. 

The alternative to this is just to record your sequences with C as the tonic.   But it's pretty quick to just adjust things after using the method above.

Thank you! That's great. Thank you for the explanation. It is the first sequencer I've owned that acts this way.
