  • Arm SHIFT (double tap to arm)

    Dont know if the shift button has a backlight? If it does, double tap to arm shift and turn on the light, and tap once to unarm and turn the light off.
    In song mode I use much more often instant mute, in track mode I prefer to enter sound edit via the direct access via pads. The shift button will be the first to wear out I fear.

  • Track view: Step color reflects velocity not pitch

    I want to see velocity without looking up the value.
    Steps are colored based on their pitch. 64 RGB values are used to fill 128 slots. Pitch coloring looks nice. But it doesnt give me much information.

    A configuration option or a shortcut to switch between pitch mode and velocity mode would be cool.
    In velocity mode all notes are colored based on their velocity value, cool if shift&up/down for changing the base color would still work. A bit different for Kit Track view but i guess i could work the same.

  • Allow custom folders in SYNTH/KIT folder on SD card

    Hold SYNTH/KIT and turn Select knob to change synth and kit banks.
    A synth or kit bank is a folder on the SD card located in the preset folders.
    When saving a preset allow to change the folder.

    Use cases:

    • group synth presets: bass, lead, arp, ..
    • easily add user banks
    • pain free file browser navigation when there are loads of files
  • What do you think about Deluge Effects?

    Deluge FX ordered by usefulness and taste

    Mod (Flanger, Chorus, Phaser)
    Delay (Analog, Digital)
    Filter (LP-12db, LP-24db, LP-Drive, HP)
    Sidechain Compressor

    For me the Mod FX stand out, very well done, I love using the Flanger FX to drill the sound.
    More dynamics fx (compressor, ..), more EQ and Distortion types, and a better control for Stutter and Delay would be awesome.

  • Demo vid of step % and amen break

    Reminds me of stuff Sector (iOS) can do.

  • Tested midi sync stability

    Just want to share a test I did to evaluate sync stability or "tightness" for live usage.
    Got a very good impression, hope Deluge gets added here ICS Litmus.html, I suspect Deluge would look very good.

    Did this test with every hardware sequencer I got:
    Slave sync is the tough part. Usually master sync is not a problem. So I set up an external hardware sequencer (Cirklon) to slave Deluge. Both seqs play a 808 kick pattern (so I get 2 sounds). If the sync is tight it sounds like one kick drum with a flanger effect. Drifts are audible very quickly. Now, the hard part for sequencers seems to be to ensure perfect slave sync in any situation (busy cpu, io, fast tempo, ..), most of my hardware sequencers cant provide stable slave sync all the time (old Akais and Cirklon do). For example Analog Rytm is likely to drift if I change patterns quickly.
    Did not notice any sync problem, very cool! Tested with switching sections, loading songs, etc. Likely there are situations where Deluge would loose sync, maybe if you slice a large sample .. However, stoked about the result!

  • Cloned track with same synth

    yeah, that would be the expected behavior. all sound param changes should affect all clones. so a cloned track was just like a midi track routed to the same instrument. if i need specific params for a specific clone i can still record automation. thats the standard DAW way i guess.
