playing the internal sequencer

Post by r3tox » Tue Jul 29, 2008 3:19 pm

Hello folks

First post here, I like drumazon (esp with the devastator combo.. damn thats good) BUT

I have played with many 909's over the years and want to be able to do ONE thing. I want to input notes into the DR's sequencer from my midi keyboard to create patters on the fly... is that possible at all?

or has anyone found a work around?

Thanks

Dzien dobry :)

Do You mean TAPing?

If yes, it's impossible still atm. The feature with assigning every control on a GUI to MidiCC or other midi code will make it possible.

Everything in the next update. I'm sorry.

Best regards,
Sebastian

TAPing?

The 909 can be played live by switching to, for example, the kick drum and then the indidivudal hits turned on and off via the 16 step sequencer from the front.

I would like this to be available via the input in ableton live so i can assign a keyboard to it and then use the first 16 keys to quickly lay in a 4 on the floor kick pattern and also to erase it by hitting the same keys again.

This feature is one of the reasons that the 909 is still popular on stage today.. i saw neil landstrumm using one and he was playing it like a typewriter... it even sounded like a typewriter.

Dzienkuje!

Hey,

By the TAPing I meant real time pattern recording by using TAP button as it's in 808 and Nepheton. In 909 and Drumazon You are able to TAP-in pattern in real time by using step buttons (turn on "tap" mode during "pattern write" mode turned on).

Assigning every control on GUI to any midi code will be possible within next update of Drumazon, that also includes step buttons.

Best regards,
Sebastian

Yes. It is planned :)

You'll be able even to edit whole patterns from midi controller (by a midi notes or midicc).

OK I am not sleepy and I am still lurking on the Forum to see if there is any news on the next version ;-)

It is not possible to upload files on this forum, but here is a step by step description how to make your own INIT BANK ;-)

1. Click PATTERN WRITE to be in Pattern write mode
2. Make sure Pattern C-1 is choosed
3. Press CTRL on your computer keyboard and CLEAR on Drumazon: this will delete the pattern C-1
4. Set the length and the scale of the pattern as you would like to have it when you begin from an empty pattern.
5. Delete the actual name of the pattern in the black Pattern Name box at the top of the plug and rename it "Init" for example.
6. Click on PATTERN SAVE to save this pattern on your harddisk, name it "InitPattern".

7. Always in write mode press COPY in Drumazon in order to copy the Init pattern you have created
7. Click NEXT to choose the next pattern (C#-1)
8. Click on PASTE to copy the init pattern
9. Repeat this for all patterns, it goes to C-8
(Be carefull to click on COPY each time before you go to the next pattern)

10. Click on BANK SAVE to save your work, name it InitBank.

Now you have an INIT BANK and an INIT PATTERN that you can load each time you need it :-)
It will take you about 2 or 3 minutes.
It took me much longer to write this ;-)

Best regards

Bump an old post as we're close to the final AU version.
Can we expect the MIDI control of the internal seq directly from GUI ??
Anyway, thanks for your job. (^ ^)

Hi,

I'm sorry, but it won't be within this update. This one is mainly about releasing AU version and unifying all drum machines.

Best regards.
