    super cool idea , essential actually , i was goping to do my own up of this as i can never remeber how to do chord , strums , custom directions , softsteps and the deeper stuff.

    did we get anywhere with this , i might draw up a quick chart of keypress = functions soon so you cna simple think – chord = this this this…..step phrase = 1.2.3.4 but i guess its not that easy…..

    this sounds interesting robert , i am slowly diving into this side.

    i am pretty sure one of the manuals has a detailed explanation on doing super steps.It does help to know what supersteps are which is pretty much lots of pre programmed lfo like waveshapes the notron could map to steps and then adjust the speed of , the results created cover everything from super fast trills as each step note plays to slower wavey conroller info , its a very simple yet very cool idea that for me was 9/10ths of the notron charm , that and dial in shifting of tracks positions in real time .

    I am drifting but to do it on the Octopus requires you place one page a controller of superstep page , get the tracks chained and running at super fast speed multiple and then draw in a controller curve , map to pitch and mess around . . . .yeah i never tried it !

    not sure there is ? i just do a very slow track multiple , long sustained note and loop this with a slow attack and release on the sound , kind of works but its not a pure infinite note on / no note off message .

    sorry flakey means ‘ unreliable ‘ , not dependable to do what it should or unpredictable.

    I now fly away for 6 months to stay warm,the Octopus is boxed and waiting to be returned to Genoqs when I come back in April.

    Sorry IX for asking…what do you mean with "flakey on machine os updates"?
    I’m not familiar to all english abbreviations – what is "flakey"?

    Cheers

    how are we on this upgrade now ? i am on 1.60 i think and want to try the hypersteps in 1.62 but a little paranoid as evertime i upgrade something goes wrong as documented or has in the past.How do i chekc what os i am on first ? and can i go from os 1.60 to 1.62 without a problem ? i’m in pc , is this mac specific ? seems we have many people having problems with these upgrades ?

    ah , i think so , its kind of a roundabout way , i was thinking just more modulate the multiplier via a simple step event ir have the ability to alter the tracks multiplication per step or in use have it so a track say plays 4 steps at 16ths then next 4 at 32 and next 4 at 8ths etc and so on , using odd time signatures and you would get super jazz sequences.I think your feature can do this maybe ? i need to try the beta and see , its all about being able to modulate tempo division per track .What would be even more amazing is if you could unsync tracks from the main tempo counter and tweak each tracks tempo out of time with the others , for ambient and abstract work that would be incredible.I still hope to see zyklus ‘ play a sequence ‘ fucntionality also someday where nothing clocks until an external midi note message enters the octopus and then the sequences are ‘ played ‘ ‘ transposed ‘ etc in realtime by the player ( via their external midi keyboard)

    Ability to modulate tempo multipliers?
    This is what hypersteps in conjunction with LEN step events are all about.. (available in the current public beta and the just around the corner release 1.62).
    Build a hyperstep and modify its length, then play with the LEN factor of the track the hyperstep is on. Is this what you were looking for?

    yeah i was the same , its the graphic interafce and stuff like the bounce sequencer and the one you can draw in ‘ rotating ‘ patterns on i loved and also the one where you hold steps and the closer to the bottom track they are the faster they player.I like this idea of # playing ‘ sequences.I think as someone has said whats really one avenue to explore is the use of more intuitove use of the grid in an abstract fashion , so you can draw in ‘shape ‘ directions . . .get 12 tracks going and then click a button and draw a square or any shape and the octopus triggers the steps in that shape only , stuff like this.A bounce function also would be super cool.The tenori on is something i think that could be looked at and certain stuff intergrated into the octopus , the direction rotating patterns , patterns you play via key press and the bouncing ball sequencer.be amazing to have a bouncing ball like sequencer function in the octopus

    i had a tenori-on for a few months when they first came out.

    was really excited when i got it but soon realised how limited it was integration-wise and sound-wise. shame cos it’s got a good (if rather flimsy) interface. sold it for more than i paid for it though which was nice :)

    obviously it doesn’t come close to what the octopus can achieve (and apologies if i’m seriously duplicating what others have said) but it would be fun to implement some of the tenori-ons ‘two dimensional’ features on the octopus. the rotating 2D vector tracks (for want of a better description) and the vertically bouncing notes were particular favourites, and i’m sure we can all come up with some other modes that would fun.

    or maybe i’m gonna have to learn how to program this thing… :dry:

    in general i think track tempo multipliers on all levels need to be modulatable so step events etc can switch track multipliers , that would create stunning shifting tempos and i think create amazing results .I think thats the genoqs biggest missing feature , ability to modulate multipliers.
