Title: Loops
Post by: okinzo on July 12, 2017, 10:28:07 pm
I'd like to record a loop to play it repeatedly. 

I've seen in live performances that synth players play some notes and then the synth keep playing the same notes over and over.

Does CS-80V3 has something like this or shall I use a DAW to do that ? if CS'80V3 has something like that, what's the name of the feature of do I find it on the user manual ?

Ok, I believe that what I'm looking it's called Realtime Sequencer:

Realtime sequencers record the musical notes in real-time as on audio recorders, and play back musical notes with designated tempo, quantizations, and pitch.  (Music sequencer entry on Wikipedia).

Does CS-80V3 has a  Realtime Sequencer ?

Hi and welcome to Arturia forums.

I can suggest you read the following in CS-80 V3 manual:
1. The arpeggiator - Section 3.5.9 page 45.
2. A step sequencer - Section 5.3.1 page 69.

While you read in the manual, i suggest you also look at CS-80s sequence presets.

This is the CS-80s on-board features/ possibilities.
There are also external possibilities to play CS-80 like features a DAW may offer, and also using things like arpeggiator and sequencer plug-ins. They can do things in different ways - and may do the thing you wan't in easier or better way for a specific purpose. Use what works best for your use in any case.

Hope this helps.

Is there a V3 manual? All I have found is a manual for a previous version that doesn't really seem to apply.

You can find manuals here: https://www.arturia.com/support/updates&manuals
But the CS-80 manual actually is'nt fully up to date.
