don't throw away changes when switching patterns
« on: September 05, 2018, 01:41:03 pm »
it would be really helpful for live performance if the PSB could be set into a mode in which the changes made to patterns would not be thrown away when switching to another pattern or another sequencer. Right now I have to individually save the pattern each time before switching - this is really inconvenient when playing live

the changes don't even necessarily have to be saved permanently between turning BSP off and on

Hit save before changing patterns maybe?
Currently running https://www.modulargrid.net/e/racks/view/1311723 / www.modulargrid.net, sequencing with KSP and recording with a Zoom (no DAW involved, for better or worse ;) )

megamarkd, this feature request is specifically about not having to "hit save" ;)

also, the procedure is a bit more complicated than just "hitting save"

would love this too - especially in a "live" situation. Don't really understand why on any sequencer you should "commit" (save) your pattern changes! Roland gear (TR drum machines, TB-303) just "write" the pattern as you go/change!

I would -1 this request. I like being able to mess around with a sequence then quickly flip in and out of it to get back to its saved state.

Even if saving is easy, I cannot remember the number of times I lost changes because I moved pattern and simply forgot to save the one I was working with. I don't know though what would be the best option to improve this.

+ 10  ;D
that Function is already on the keyStep Pro and its absolutely awesome because you can record a huge complex set within a minute or less just because of this Auto-Save-Function!! Just hit the ">" and the end of each pattern while recording  :D

This would be especially useful for pattern chains. Live recording a scene with more than 64 steps is impossible without this feature.

I assume that no firmware development is going on for Beatstep Pro at all... sadly...
If anyone can tell us the opposite, we'd all be very happy to know.
