How to create a 32 step sequencer using two Gate+Velocity sequencers
Recently I put together a ‘16 step drum sequencer’, to be used with a LaunchPad X.
It worked rather nicely.
So I thought to myself, “now that I’ve done a 16 step drum sequencer why not do another one,
this time making it a 32 step sequencer using the Gate+Velocity sequencer?”
Easier said than done.
I asked @bcrichards for some advice and he mentioned a ‘slow’ switch.
I thought to myself, “yup, got it.”
Then I began and got it totally wrong.
Here’s the screenshot,
In this example I attempted to have a slow switch toggle between sending the ‘Clock Generator’ signal
from one sequencer to another and then somehow have the 2nd switch be the reset signal.
The theory was to have one sequencer play and then stop after 16 steps and to have the
next sequencer play for 16 steps and then stop and then the 1st sequencer start again,
both restarting from the 1st step each time.
It didn’t work as expected.
So I started again.
This time I left both sequencers running as I remembered that
the sequencers automatically reset upon Transport Stop.
I put the Switch N-1 module after the sequencers to have
the ‘Slow’ switch, switch between the two sequencers.
This time it worked as expected.
Here’s the screenshot
Much simpler and resulted in the desired effect of having a 32 step sequencer.
