Title: Help for an idiot newbie
Post by: NuWaveRx on July 03, 2018, 02:24:17 pm
Just purchased V-Collection 6 and am having a blast with it.  One problem I am having (I'm sure the beginning of many) is using the step sequencer on the Jup-8 V3.  In sum I can't seem to find how to record a sequence that I play.  For example the opening sequence to Duran Duran's Save a Prayer, I've got the sound and the fx down--how would I record that for continuous loop playback.  I've looked over the manual and Youtube with no help.  Could any of the experts here spare a moment to walk someone how to use the step sequencer for live loop playback?  Thanks so much.  :)

You can't record a sequence you are playing on the keyboard in JUP-8s internal step sequencer. You need to set each step sequencer step manually. This is quite normal behavior for such a step sequencer. Unfortunately you need to do a little math because semitone steps still is'nt fixed as reported here: https://forum.arturia.com/index.php?topic=88114.msg148976#new

Alternatively you can use a DAW and perhaps other external software or hardware with the required functionality. But the Duran Duran sequence is a static pattern, so it'll work, if you set each note manually and save the preset.
