Simple electribe er1 question

How would I do a 12 step pattern in the Korg Electribe (er1)? (12 16th notes in a 3/4 signature).

I want to do a beat in 3/4. Also, is it possible to do more unusual time signatures, such as 5/4, 6/4, etc?

Thanks.

hold down shift and hit the 7th step key - now yer in triplets.
hold down shift and choose the number of beats 12, 24, 36, or 48 from step keys 1-4.

it's in the manual page 26.

Dang. That kinda sucks if you can't simply move the step amount to 12 without having to make the steps 16th triplets. So you can't really move out of 4/4 then, unless anyone else knows anything cool?

well you can go to triplets, go to 12, then just adjust tempo to taste...ive done 6/8 stuff on this machine before.

just try it i bet you find something useful

awesome machine :D
