I've been messing with my Beatstep for a while and am now realizing there's a function missing that I assumed would be there. Or maybe I'm just dumb and haven't discovered it yet. I know how to turn steps on or off (off = rest) and I know how to shorten overall sequence length, but is there a way to skip a step?
Example you could have a sequence like this:
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15-16 = 16 beats
You could then add rests like this:
1-2-3-4-Off-6-7-8-Off-10-11-12-Off-14-15-16 = 16 beats
Shorten sequence like this:
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X = 8 beats
Skip steps like this
1-X-3-X-5-X-7-X-9-X-11-X-13-X-15-X = 8 beats
There would have to be a visual indicator that a step is skipped rather than off. Preferably the skipped beat(s) at the end of a shortened sequence would have the same visual indication because it is effectively doing the same thing (skipping steps rather than resting).
