2 or more notes at a time with LIVE.GRID or LIVE.STEP

Nov 12 2012 | 5:02 pm

Hi Guys,

Im messing around making a probability based drum machine and I just wondering if its possible to get more than one notes triggered at the same time with live.grid or live.step objects, in a sort of ‘polyphonic mode’ i suppose.

I can get the results I want with [matrix] or a series of [itable]’s but I would ideally the graphics/grid that the live objects provide to make drum programming easier.

Any Ideas appreciated.

Kind Regards,

You can have multiple sequences running at the same time with live.step. Have a look at the "Editing Sequences" tab in live.step‘s help file, it demonstrates the use of 2 sequences in parallel.

Thanks for the reply, i got what i needed by using ‘matrixmode$1’ for the live.grid object.
