I just tried recording the pattern with an external keyboard, but didn’t have much more luck. It seems that after recording the pattern, if I want to preserve the original pitches of the pattern, I need to adjust the VCO0 pitch slider, but that also changes the ratio of the pitches? Or messes with the pattern in some other way. Yeah, VCO1 tick should is the pattern metronome, but I suspect that it doesn’t advance a step at the moment that by brain thinks it should, but some other more unintuitive part of the cycle. =)
Manual says pattern length is quantised to 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64 or 128. So that’s pretty cool at least. Haven’t tried recording longer than 16 step patterns so far.
I suspect the designer’s intended use case for the sequencer is adding variation to patches, and not entering precise sequences, which is somewhat disappointing, but I hope I’m wrong. =)
And by the way you can patch the sequencer to other destinations too, so in a way it applies to other sliders too!
