Matthew unravels the mysteries of the Repeat lane.

Episode 5 Topics

Repeat lane - add ratcheting to your sequence

Repeat quantization - constrain your repeat value editing to duple or triple value.

Repeat velocity scaling - applies a velocity contour to repeated notes so repeats don't sound like a machine gun.

Episode 5 Details

Up to this point, all sequencers use the most logical step behavior: forward. Other modes, like backwards and back and forth are also available. In this video, we make use of the 'random' setting which moves to a random stage in the sequence each pulse. This can provide some spontaneity to your sequence. The step behavior can be set for each sequence, so, for example, your pitch sequence could move forward while your velocity selection is random.

You can control the weighting of the random values in your sequence. For example, you may have a repeat lane with a loop value of 10. If the random sequence is completely off, except for one stage, that repeat value should appear approximately 10% of the time.
