Hi   
It would be nice to have a sequencer randomizer plus per step playback parameter for the sequencer with percentage 0-100% and divisions to create variations on the fly  (like on the analog four)  that would be amazing.

another question: since beta version is now at 22 is there a separate bug thread? Ive seen some small threads talking about bugs  but no main bug thread. (overview)

For all Sequential / OB synths : a backup/restore like a usb memory stick (like Roland Boutique synths, rhythm boxes, grooveboxes etc.) would be great.

Just copy / paste, would be much more reliable than sysex

I don't believe this has been mentioned before, but it would be cool to be able to record knob changes using the on-board sequencer, useful for sequences and for adding some animation to a given patch.

Where are we on firmware updates, anyway? .22 has been out since mid-November -- should we expect another build before an official release?

and option for Glissando  a “stepped” glide, rather than
providing a smooth glide :)

Another feature sported by the Alesis Micron that I think really rips for a performance-oriented keyboard:

Pitch Bend affects ALL notes vs Pitch Bend affects only HELD notes


The Micron's Latch button is a lot like the Take 5's Hold button. Usage scenario: I want to make a drone sound by playing B, F#, and B (octave up). Press Hold, then release the Bs. Still holding the F#, I would bend it up or down up to a whole step while the Bs stay constant.

I like that!

Got another one based on a recent thread about stereo delay!

An option to enable ping-pong when stereo mode is enabled. Not everyone will want ping-pong all the time, but some will. Many will.

Also... whether or not this is based on precedent, I think it's sort of antiquated to force the performer to manually switch from mono to stereo when choosing to use both outputs. My mid-2000s Alesis Micron, among a thousand other brands & makes of synthesizer, features auto-stereo by plugging something into the right channel. Also that Cathedral pedal, pretty old and also tiny. Idunno if soldering has to happen to enable that, but it really shouldn't. Let's get this puppy up to date.

Hi,
I installed the update via Sysex Librarian. After power on:
My Take 5 is frozen;
My Take 5 Display only shows "Take 5"
and nothing goes on.
Please help.

sounds a bit like a similar problem I had on the PRO3:
sometimes the octave knob is stuck in an in-between position, when I turn it, the synth comes to life.
so wiggle every endless encoder you have on the take 5 - hope this helps

That's one I'd contact support about, they're very responsive. Good luck!

Great to see the option for the pedal to start the seq

all I wish now is for a sostenuto ( to be able to play solo on top of sustained notes)   

Happy easter synth times  ;D

Wow what an Amazing Support.
Thank you Sequential (Gabby).
The Update works fine.

  • Display the value on screen while moving a knob. This is already implemented for the LFO amount knob while the matrix is on display. Please do this for all knobs and also display their stored value, ideally in a graphical way, so that pot mode passthru becomes much more useful helping us understand how the active patch/preset was made.
  • Please make HOLD + "Relatch On" available outside of ARP mode.
  • While holding BANK the LED of the currently selected bank number should light up instead of the selected patch number.

Thank you so much for this awesome synth!

If Sequential is still considering feature requests, I'd like the ability to dump and restore the contents of the patch edit buffer, not just the selected preset as currently supported.

The use case I'm thinking to support is where I make changes to a given patch and store those edits along with the track that uses it in my DAW so that whenever I return to the project and play the track, the right sound is played w/o overwriting   whatever is currently in that preset slot.

I believe I can accomplish the goal with additional work using Soundtower's PlugSE but the ability to dump and retrieve to and from the edit buffer would be a lot easier and wouldn't require 3rd party tools.

Thanks!

Would be great if you could personalize the basic patch

Add my vote to this one.  After a few years I'm not all that crazy about tuning my oscillators by ear.  My Prophet Rev 2 has that feature and I see no reason why it should be omitted from the Take 5. 

"Thank you so much for this awesome synth!"


Ditto!!!

You can tune the oscillators in the program menu, and when you’re in the pitch for an oscillator, the value updates as you turn the pitch knob, and you can use the value encoder to dial it in precisely.

But I do agree with the requests, being able to see the values of every knob when they’re turned would be great, and also the saved value instead of just relying on that tiny dot in the LED.
