IDEA STARTER

It is boring to start any new pattern with all notes, velocities  and gates equal for all steps.

To boost my creativity I need a way to randomize a pattern (notes within the current scale), velocities and gates.

Maybe using the sequence "SHIFT" + "Sequencer" + "Step1"

Happy sequencing to all!  :)

Double or triple tap on encoder would return its value to default.

I could see this being triggered accidentally all the time.. Would need to be a more robust method i think

My feature reqs:
'-Keyboard' dims non scale notes
-Tie setting in drum gates (the manual says you can do it with the software, why not the hardware?)
-Cut/paste steps
-nudge sequence left/right
-quick tie works for already active steps (currently annoying workflow)
-quick tie works bi-directional. The tie uses whatever step note you press first, so you can tie to the left

Ps. I want to mention how fantastic the bsp is already, i'd hate the engineers just reading this thread as a list of complaints! Good work already guys :)

One more: midi clock uses master swing setting

 i just noticed that the beatstep outputs a steady midi clock regardless of swing settings.. Really wish it had an option to use the global swing setting to affect midi clock out, so gear with no swing will stay in rhythm with the beatstep. See mutable yarns as a product that does this, it's really useful

Awesome ideas here!

I'd also like to see support for non western tunings. The user scale could be microtonal and include Japanese, Indian, Persian and many other musical scales.

Also I like the idea of being able to set a first step, or as you can with the volca/monotribe, choose active steps to play and it skips all turned off steps.

I understand that a lot of the things requested may simply be too complex to implement realistically, but I think this thread shows the enthusiasm for the device.

Personally I think it's a great product!

I returned my BSP to the store, however I'm willing to purchase it again if the GATE/VEL, nudge sequences, and changing pattern when they end are implemented.

I am struggling to put in patterns with ease (only been monkeying around for a few hours so far) and so I figured I would use the MCC to write some sequences.
You need to DOUBLE-CLICK to add a step to the sequence in MCC. Of all the times when double-click is unnecessary and tedious (esp. on a laptop with a crappy trackpad like mine) this is it.

Please change step toggle to SINGLE-CLICK in MCC. One click to add, one click to remove. It would also help to be able to play the sequence in MCC with any rudimentary samples to hear the pattern you are writing.

OMG there is no copy/paste in MCC to edit sequences!?
Huge oversight. Obviously they didn't make MCC with the intent of someone trying to edit sequences with it.
I guess I can understand that.
But unfortunately creating and editing sequences on the BSP seems a bit clunky for my workflow.
I rather like the drum sequence recording mode, but the melody sequences cannot be entered that way.
Instead you have to twiddle the knobs to find the right note for each step, or enter it live and then fix it.
It would be nice in melody sequence 1 & 2 in record while not playing to allow the user to
1) select a pad/note
2) select which steps that note is played
3) repeat for all pads in the selected scale

similar to the drum seq record mode.

SHIFT + CHAN = SELECT MIDI IN (RCV) CHANNEL for each SEQ 1/2/DR/CTRL would be nice too

for routing live recorded patterns via an external keyboard...

1. The way the beatstep pro deals with saving patterns is kind of counter intuitive: u make some patterns in the flow, it totally forget to save the individual patterns, would be much more intuitive to have all the patterns saved by playing and then saved the project to maintain all patterns and changes.

2. PAttern change next bar, 1/4, 1/2, etc//

3. Drum sequences option on every pad on different midi channel
4. mpc style pad rolls !!! - we cna use the roller/looperfor that + please also workin when  no seq. layin!!!

5. The controller mode: Would  be nice to have where the patterns are with the sequences to have presets in the controllermode ~~

6.! THE editor: the whole global part is one huge roll down and up: some sub dividation (in the GUI ) would be awesome !


i like the beatstep pro a lot already ! :) :)

Option to send continuous MIDI clock and/or Sync out even while stopped. That way there are no show stoppers, no self-promoting clock masters resulting in wild BPM-sync'd FX chaos.
