MetaModule: additional play modes

Post by iaon » Wed Dec 23, 2015 11:54 pm

Hi,

Controller 03 in the MetaModule (Play patterns) currently has two positions, off (0) and on (1). More settings could be added for different playback behaviours. These could go in the Options menu as well but in the controller they'd be automatable. This way some more complex arpeggiation / rhythmic variations become possible, especially if this is implemented so that switching modes takes effect immediately during playback. Some possibilities that come to mind:

no restart (playback starts where it was stopped before)
random start (starts from random line)
play once (stops at end of MM patterns)
reverse (plays backwards)
ping pong (alternates forwards & backwards)
scramble (plays lines in random order)
per line (plays just 1 line per note input and retains playback position)
random line (plays 1 randomly chosen line)
etc...

Of course more variations can be devised, as well as combinations of these.

The 'per line' mode was the first idea. Like how the SH-101's sequencer can be triggered by a drum machine via gate input. A MetaModule sequence could be played one line at a time with any timing.
