Ok, possibly a stupid question but basically im stuck!! I have figured out the guts of nearly everything on this brilliant sequencer but for the life of me i can’t figure this out which i assumed would be trivial.
So if anybody can help me or indeed use the nemo to sequence a vermona drm 1 mk3, how did you do it.
No problem assigning the first 4 tracks to say the kick drum, snare, hihat, hihat 2 but when i try and assign another one say the clap – it is doubling up on the track of say the kick drum – if you get me!!!!
Basically I need to assign 8 individual tracks – anybody know how to do this – do i set up two pages? The manual is not very good at explaining this kind of stuff
Any help much appreciated

you use the 2nd horizontal row.
you can play any combination of the 4 rows simultaneously.
I dont understand how your managing to get the kick and clap playing together unless your using chords.
I have a "touched by sound DRM-1" which is basically the MK1 of the machine your using.September 5, 2010 at 22:37 #2927
thanx, still no joy, what mode – page? so i hold page and then would select any of the buttons in the 2nd row, so say the first button that doubles up as pit? do i create a cluster? any steps appreciated,cheers

there you have 4 rows of 16 pages.
the top row contains 1 or more pages sequencing drm instruments 1-4
the second row 1 or more pages for instruments 5-8.September 6, 2010 at 23:14 #2929
ok which is what im doing: which causes doubling up.
steps: grid mode selected(blinking orange led) =>i select the first page on row 1(double click) now in page mode => setup instruments 1 -4 no problem all is well
back in grid mode => double click(now in page mode) on 1st led 2nd row => setup instruments 5 – 8 => first initial step is recognised on first sequence iteration for each instrument, 2nd sequence iteration -> instruments double up, so for example the kick and snare double up as the kick is led 1 on page1 and snare is led 1 on page 2, do you see my problem => what am i doing wrong.
thanx for your help

your setting up whole the tracks in the page on the second row to different midi notes right?
row 1, page 1:
track 1 = C-1
track 2 = D-1
track 3 = E-1
track 4 = F-1
row 2, page 1:
track 1 = G-1
track 2 = A-1
track 3 = B-1
track 4 = C-2
your setting up the whole track right? Not just the first step in each track. I usually start by triggering all steps in a track then holding the track selector button to the left of the rows in page mode and turning PIT till i arrive at the desired instrument, which machine-guns. Then copy this track down and offset to the next instrument.September 9, 2010 at 12:06 #2932
no i wasn’t – quite obvious,working like a dream, now to master the effector and all will be well, i owe you beers
thanx a lot
