Multiple tracks with the same sound not possible?

Hello from Berlin!

I’m new here and this is my first post, sorry when I start with a stupid? question...

I just got my Deluge and love this little device already! 😊
Now I’m going to record my first project and I run in first trouble.

I want to create several sequences/clips in own tracks to arrange, merge and stack them if needed.
All sequences should have the same sound!

When I add a new track/clip in songview I can’t select a sound which I’ve already used in the project.
Is this normal or did I miss something?

Thanks a lot in advance for your kindly help!

🙏

    You can create a track with a sequence, clone it, then edit the cloned track, but you can’t play both original and cloned track at the same time. You also can’t create two new tracks that have the same sound number that would play simultaneously.

    You might be able to save a sound as another sound number and use one track with original sound number and the other track with the new sound number. I’ve never tried that specifically. You could also modify a sound parameter slightly and save it as a new number and use it on the new track so they sound so similar as to be indistinguishable.

    The limitation is in using the same sound save slot on two tracks playing simultaneously.

    Thanks a lot for confirmation @Vondragonnoggin ! 🙏
    So I will try to save the sounds as A, B, C... to use them in different tracks!
    Maybe there are orther workarounds as well. 😊

    I tried this and it still won’t let you play both at the same time which is strange to me. I didn’t modify the sound just saved to a different preset

    Correction to my last post... This actually did work!
    Not sure what I did differently after I walked away for a few hours and tried again..

    Did it actually save globally? Or just save within a song?

    If you saved as preset 190 for instance and previously you only had 189 presets, can you pick 190 in a brand new song?

    If it has a letter next to the number then it is not a global save. Global preset list is just numbers.

    It would be great, if you could step into a cloned track, then clone the synth and you could play both tracks simultaneously. Track 1 with Synth20a and former cloned track (but now independently) with Synth 20b

    You can reach that already,
    1. when create a track,
    2. change the synth (eg. 20 to 20a),
    3. Then clone the track,
    4. step into the cloned track,
    5. switch back to Synth 20 and 6. change a parameter,
    6. it sets the synth automatically to Synth 20b.

    The only problem is, that if you changed a lot parameters and effects and you only want to have a slightly different synth playing at the same time you need to rework every single setting. It would be far more easy if you just could clone a synth on a cloned track and this track gets independent.
