Fine Note Length Adjustment

18

It would be helpful if you could adjust the length of an existing note by pressing/holding the note's pad on the grid and the turning <> to make it it longer or shorter (by small amounts maybe as a percentage of the time division of the view level). I think this would be helpful when wanting to edit longer sequences.

In case I am not explaining myself well, the sequencer on the minilogue has this feature and it makes it easy to create grooves even when you are limited to 1/16th notes or what have you. You select a step in the sequence and then adjust the gate from 0-100%. So at 1/16th note per step, 50% gate gives you a note that is 1/32nd in length.

    i need dis very much

    i find that when making my psytrance leads going up and down x64 x32 x16 just straight up spins you out and is way to time cosuming. i often forget the rhythm ive got in my head by the time I zoom in and out so far & across soooo many pages of even a 2 x 16 bar.

    in a daw sequencer its as easy as look @ your big ass sequence on with heaps of step & selecting your steps and dragging left or right for small or bigger note length.
    why cant it be this easy on the deluge ?

    maybe two modes
    fractional mode - hold step turn wheel divide options x16,x32,x64,x128
    percentage mode - hold step turn wheel *%

    Yes, this it's really needed. Independently of the upvotes, this needs to be adressed, it's one of the MAJOR workflow issues right now, zooming, then finding the page of the note do u want to edit, it's very annoying, it's one of the worst workflow solutions in the Deluge (but in general, Deluge workflow it's amazing) .

    I don't get why more people don't see this.

    not terrible for me but i have that use case too. i use rather short lengths for subtle varaitions, thats very powerful, also a reason why i dont like the auto setting of cut and once in sample load, i rarely use once mode because i want immediate control over the sample length.

    a workaround is to learn envelope params. but kinda limited, not the same as note length.
    i dont think the up/down shortcut for moving rows up and down while holding a step is often needed, much better if L/R lets u set velocity and U/D gate.

    I agree. that's the way I'm used to it on the Pyramid as well. being able to few a pattern at a certain zoom level, but still be able to do smaller than a current step changes to note lengths and offsets, means that you can work much faster. constantly Zooming in and out and constantly trying to remember which page a given note is likely to be on, combined with the brain twister of teching yourselft to hit the exact pad when trying to increase the length but hitting pad plus one when trying to reduce it makes anything more precise than a basic XOXOX pattern a chore.

    Can you expand on this? I am not sure I understand what you mean about using the envelopes, and would be interested in a work around. (though I am still holding my breath that this, or some similar iteration of this function, will get implemented in a future update.)

    @amiga909 what was your workaround?

    well, it is acutally not a real workaround. just automate envelope release, can be a way to go depending on the sound.
    did upvote. proposal: step + up/down alters gate length, not row order. row order shortcut then requires another modifier key like learn. would not mind as i dont use as often as note length edit.

    Yes I fully agree!!
