BeatStep - Technical Questions - FAQ / Beatstep sync issues
« Last post by phormz on July 28, 2014, 12:25:02 pm »
Okay, so I bought Beatstep to function as an additional analogue sequencer for my modular using Gate/CV. Everything in my studio is clocked together via the Mac with Logic Pro X and Expert Sleepers Silent Way plugins and hardware. This setup works perfectly for everything else I have.

However, with Beatstep the midi sync is waaaaay off and sounds something like a train crash!  :o
I have to bring it into line by triggering different sequencer resolution settings like toggling 1/4 and 1/8th notes ...and even then it's entirely dependent on my timing of hitting the pads. I can get it pretty much spot on within 3 or 4 attempts, but it'll only stay in sync as long as it's left playing. As soon as the sequence is stopped and started again, I have to do it all again ...and due to being dependent on my hand's timing, will obviously sound slightly different than the last time I played it.

This sucks BIGTIME !!

I do realise that Beatstep is a comparatively inexpensive device, but the features it does have should at least work. I'd say that the capability of syncing with other gear (for a sequencing device) is nothing short of essential. Beatstep is potentially a fantastic unit and makes sense in so many ways, but currently the lack of basic functionality renders it almost useless. I'd rather pay more money for something that works.

Pleeeeeeease sort this out Arturia !!

General Discussion on BeatStep / Re: Feature suggestions / wishlist

To make this a real drum pad it needs:

MPC/Maschine note repeat

This is pretty crucial. Its also the main reason why I don't use this a drum pad midi controller. I would if it did this.

Also as everyone asks, different step lengths for each sequencer step

BeatStep - Technical Questions - FAQ / Re: Problems with Midi Learn
« Last post by ben arturia on July 28, 2014, 11:21:09 am »
Are sure your BeatStep is on control mode.
Try to recall an other memory.
Please check again with MCCu.
There is no bug on MIDI learn with BeatStep. It's working great...

Hi byrdy60
You mean you are not able to record a pitch automation made with controller in Sonar ? Or that automations made in the Spark sequencer are not exported in MIDI ?

In order to write automations with controller you need to select the parameter you want to automate in the drop down menu of the automation track and select "Spark Vintage Drum Machine" then choose the parameter you want.

Automations made in Spark sequencer are not exported in MIDI.

Tell me if i answer your question here.

MicroBrute Technical Questions - FAQ / Re: Sequencer does not work anymore
« Last post by achtungmark on July 28, 2014, 07:50:26 am »
Sequencer has stopped working totally!

Won't record or playback anything that I've tried to record. Have tried re-loading old stored sequences, re-recording sequences, and the settings Bruno recommended.

I must say that I totally unhappy about the situation! One of the reasons I bought the Micro Brute was for the sequencer, it appears that I'm stuck with a sequencer less synthesizer.

The synth is still under guarentee, but this SHOULD NOT be happening at all.

After reading through this forum, I can see only one answer from Arturia being the one from Bruno which doesn't work. I take very little comfort here that I'm not alone in this situation.

I can't avoid the feeling that the Micro-Brute, in general, has a genuine bug in the Sequencer hardware which Arturia are not dealing with.

Like I said, I am really very unhappy with this situation and the lack of an answer here.

Mark.

MicroBrute Technical Questions - FAQ / Re: Sequencer does not work anymore
« Last post by BichoVergara on July 28, 2014, 07:29:58 am »
Hi everybody!
I recently bought my MicroBrute, and everything worked just perfect... until yesterday at night, when I update the firmware... since then the sequencer is having an odd behaviour... and I don't know if anybody is having the same trouble...
When I play a sequence, I can't modify the tempo with the "tap" button on the fly, as I used to (the tempo doesn't change at all). And the second issue is, when I'm playing a sequence and I move the "rate" knob, the tempo don't change gradually... it change from steps (4 different "steps", with  4 different tempos... and not the smooth tempo change that I used to be able to perform).
Somebody help me!!!

Hi folks can anybody help me out here,
When I try to record automation drum data from spark vdm to sonar x3 studio the midi data is recorded but all the control changes in the drum track are not present. I've tried every possible way to my knowledge so far to record the spark vdm preset pattern  drum pitch an decay changes etc .. To sonar but only the midi drum pattern is recorded. These are the methods I've tried to use to capture the spark vdm preset pattern automation control changes:

1. Drag an dropping midi pattern from spark to sonar
2. Using sonars automation read and write feature to capture control changes
3. Using sonars parimeter facility to individually change automation data like pitch an decay etc... I found this feature only let me manually change the data by placing nodes in real time in sonar but didn't record sparks vdm's preset pattern automation changes.
4. Using Sonars ACT midi learn function didn't work either

Please help me out here. Any more suggestions would be great thanks guys
