Thanks for spending your time with my music, glad you liked it.
I use the pickup machines – when I follow a strict ritual, I can get them to do what I want. What I want is to do recordings longer than 64 steps, and then do overdubs on these recordings. Can't do that in a single Flex machine. The pickups sometimes played tricks on me, even live, when I had to read the dreaded "Dub aborted" (nice album title BTW) message, but if I stick to certain rules like no tempo changes, reset all pitch changes before overdubbing (check scenes!) etc., I get along with them.
I sent so many enhancement requests and bug reports on the pickups to Elektron that I lost count of it, but even in their current state (which is unlikely to change, as Elektron obviously is doing other things like AH, DT and Overbridge)…having them is so much more useful than not having them.
