Round-Robin issues?

OK so I’ve got a simple drum loop that I put on [Pad 1] and set to [Round-Robin Mode], I can get it doing the round-robin effect without the sequencer running, but then when I hit record it just plays the first slice over and over while recording. Then when the recording sequence loops, it plays back as it should have while recording.

Am I doing this right or is this a bug?

It also seems to happen when I enter [Loop Slice] mode on another track. In this instance I’m trying to add a kick, truncated from a loop:

“While recording, the actual slice is heard and recorded. When the pattern comes around again and plays that event, it will be round-robined.”

Thanks Mikey, I missed that part apparently.

I love the round-robin function so far- it’s super cool- but this seems like a bit of a burden in the creative process, no?

It makes it difficult to know or play the exact timing (as seen in the video) of the part I want to lay down in round-robin. Instead I just have to anticipate the end result and hope that it happens as the first note in the round robin has different tonality and shape than the other hits.

All due respect, just sharing my opinion and being picky. It’s still a fantastic addition :slight_smile:

You can use quantization and the repeat function. Set the quantization (in which you would like to trigger the single notes) quickly by pressing and holding the Quantize button and rotating the Select Knob. Then you can press and hold Tap/Repeat + press and hold the Pad → it cycles through

I’m really into the new Round Robin feature. It’s a great addition for experimental users. The only issue I’ve found is playback can be quite ‘clicky’ (like when your sample start and end points are not properly zeroed in). It could because I’m using unusual samples (eg not standard rhythms / percussion loops). I’ve been experimenting with quite abstract loops, very textural and melodic stuff. Adjusting the envelopes and filters doesn’t seem to help soften the clicking. Hope this is something that can be refined in an update.
