Help with Live.step, multiple notes?

December 10, 2013 | 2:42 am

Posting this here as well as M4L forum, to summarise, we’ve been challenged to make a drum machine using the live.step however the major issue I’m having is getting more than one note to appear along each step. I assume that this is because the live.step isn’t meant to do a ‘matrix’ mode function like the live.grid and thus the task is completely impossible. Anyway, thanks for reading.

Live Step might not be the best option for a drum style sequencer but it is quite possible to have up to 16 simultaneous sequences (nseq $1) – Check the help patches.

Oh yes, I forgot about the different sequences, do they all output simultaneously or just the one that is selected?
