Yes, pattern switching is instant. Next step should be on the new pattern. Pattern won't restart, so if you're at step 10 and switch to another pattern, the next pattern will start at its 11th step.TrondC wrote:those are some neat tricks for sure, by instant pattern switching, do you mean it switches as soon as the current pattern is finished it's last step?xonox wrote:Other nice things to know about the bassline 1 :
You can manually turn on accenting by pressing the accent button while in play mode.
You can mess with the pattern length and timing switches in realtime for more fun. Pattern switching is instant, you can play part of one pattern and switch to another.
Midi sync is very stable here. It's one of the most reliable midi sync i've come across. Don't know how perfect timing is but the device never loses sync or complain. Even when my workstation sends messed up timing info, it does that when saving big samples...
or can I switch whenever I want, say on step 10 so there's a new pattern starting where step 11 should be? if so, that's pretty awesome!!
I predict this will be a veeeery long wait, as I won't afford it until mid July... I want my acid!!
Sadly, the bassline 2 does not have as many switches to change timing of patterns in real time. It does have several new cool things. Accent out is great if you want to drive another synth. I guess you could even hook up another analogue synth that has just cv/gate but use the accent gate output so the 2nd synth would only play notes on accents.
Fun trick i can't try because bassline 1 has no accent out.
