ive mentioned it a few times . . .the ability to Start and stop individual tracks via midi note on and off messages and also transpose the selected tracks at the same time . . . sounds simple but allows the user to create polymorphic ideas to then record into another sequencer or even back into another octopus track . . . i know the Octopus can change pages via program changes ? but it cant start and stop tracks via midi note on and off messages ? or can it ? been looking and hoping
Matt, thanks for your patience – and sorry for the lag in replying.
I will take it up and evaluate ways of making muting note bound, as opposed to program change bound. Since keyboards don’t usually have more than 88 keys, one solution would be to assign channels to each bank (e.g. 1-9) and then use the appropriate octave keys (labeling on the top) to select the page to be toggled.
Let me know what you think – anyone ??
