I’m discovering the Kria sequencing and there’s a fog i’d like to clear
So, i have a miscellaneous of questions here :
1/ Is it possible to add steps in a pattern ? (are we stuck to 6 steps ?)
2/ how do you make triplet ? Do you use Ratcheting behavior ?
3/ Is there an arpegiator hidden somewhere ?
4/ Is it possible to erase a pattern and paramaters settings to start over from scratch ?
5/ After a while of playing with Kria, i’ve created a non linear sequence that i can’t explain how i get it, something with some pauses although ratchet was off, it was flollowing the steps then stop randomly and then play again, do you have an idea what was happing ? > blurry question, might be difficult to answer…
So yes, many questions, i’d appreciate to get some more info, thanks in advance !
Hey, I think you already read the manual on Monome web-site, but if you didn’t I suggest you to do it.
Kria is wonderful because is very deep and it has a lot of pad combos and “hidden” functions, you have to develop a muscle memory, but don’t worry it’s simple after all!
Of course you can do longer patterns (and you can even do pattern chains) to achieve a 16 step pattern, press the 9th pad of the bottom row and while you’re pressing choose the length you want on the desired pattern row, from 2 to 16 steps.
Having some trouble understanding how saving works - I think I’ve about got it, just looking for some confirmation.
It seems that a “pattern” holds all information about the tracks, including their clocking settings on the scale page, and which scale is selected. But it seems that patterns are not saved unless a preset is saved? I cannot get the “hold pattern button, wait for pulse and pattern has been saved” behavior. Holding a pattern button seems to copy the current pattern to whichever pattern I hold the button for, there is no pulsing and the data does not seem to be saved through a power cycle unless I save a preset. And a preset saves all the pattern data, scale data, and configuration data.
Do I have that about right?
Also, I feel like I recall that there is a way to make ratchets advance the note with each trigger, creating arpeggios, is this real or am I imagining it?
Edit: Found it, the column of 4 lit keys directly to the right of the the “Teletype clocking” keys on the scale page toggle this ratcheting behavior. The term to use to find a full description in the manual is “trigger clocking”.
Can someone explain to me how to get to the preset page in Kria? When I press the “preset” button as shown in the docs (the one next to USB port) it goes into the leader mode page, not the preset page.
If I’m understanding you right: they are the same page! Your eight presets are accessed with the buttons in the leftmost column. You can draw glyphs for those presets in the 8x8 grid of buttons on the right. In the middle are your leader controls.
Could anyone tell me the pitch cv output range on ansible? I’m trying to have my expert-sleepers fh-2 match ansible so I can use either interchangeably without having to retune oscillators. Edit: I see it’s 0-10V in the docs, perhaps the fh-2 needs calibrating because these 0-10V’s are very different to each other
I almost always use multiple patterns but rarely use the meta sequencer as I have to look back at documentation every time I use it to remember what I’m doing . I do use the quantized pattern cueing function all the time.
(the reason i posted this is) i’m making a kria port and was wondering how many people used that function. i consider myself proficient with kria and still have no idea how that page works. so i’m trying to figure out if/how i should port the functionality!
To adjust one note in a scale without affecting its interval relationship with the notes after it, hold the scale key while changing the scale note. The subsequent note is adjusted to compensate.
I’m having trouble with this. My understanding is that the default way of changing a note in a scale, without holding any buttons, does not affect its interval relationship with the notes after it, as each note is defined by its interval with the note directly below it.
What I’d love to be able to do, and what I thought this was describing when I first read it, is change one note in a scale without affecting the interval relationship between the notes above and the notes below the note that was just changed.
In any case, holding the scale button while changing a scale note does not seem to elicit behavior that is any different from changing the scale note without holding down the scale button.
I reflashed to the latest firmware to be sure - and the same holds. Is this out of date documentation or am I missing something?
