Hello, amazing device :) its next level comparing to Instant House by Alexkid

I have 3 questions and 1 request:

Does the saved user patterns are aded to the list of the 512 ones ? There is any possibility to manage that list and filter it lets say ?

Does the pro version has the 32 steps patterns made specifically for it or are the same 16 steps ones from the free version multiply by 2 ? I mean there is any diversification between first 16 steps and the rest of the 16 steps?

Are your patterns made with techno and house in mind, I mean you analyzed specific techno and house patterns or are more randomly?

Do you think you can add also swing presets? And having at least the basic ones like like TR-909, MPC-3000, SP-1200 and maybe some latinos one like the Ableton ones? Of course ideally will be to have 8 different swings for every of the sounds, MFB Tanzbar drum machine has different swings on every channel and really make the difference but its a pain to program it fast...

Also I know you have a nice accent implemented so no need for that ones in the swing presets, just the delays of the notes will be enough.

Thank you

Dear Pluto and the rest of the community ;-)

Here are my answers (and we are in touch now by private email.. you are becomiung pone of our beta tester now !)...

Q1: Does the saved user patterns are aded to the list of the 512 ones ? There is any possibility to manage that list and filter it lets say ?

When you save, you will overwrite the current preset. Let's say that you have chosen the pattern 9, you change it and save it. The prefilled 9 is overwritten. I put a 'R' button to reset all the memory and come back to the normal 512 patterns... but then you loose all your saved works.

There are no mean to filter the memory. I will put it on the wish list (I could think of adding a panel (hidden) that you could open and then filter your memories). It's not a priority to be honest.

---
Q2: Does the pro version has the 32 steps patterns made specifically for it or are the same 16 steps ones from the free version multiply by 2 ? I mean there is any diversification between first 16 steps and the rest of the 16 steps?

In the PRO Version, a pattern is composed of 16 steps that I double to get the 32 steps (CPU perfomance reason). But in the PRO version you have 512 patterns x 32 steps... unique 512 patterns x 32 steps :-) in the Free version you have much much much less and you can't save neither edit your patterns.

So in a sense, there is no real "difference" between 1-16 and 16-32 steps. But it let you the space to create from the 17 to 32 what ever you want, your own ryhtm and save it ! So you make your own stuff above a prefilled pattern. I thought it would be nice and with my DJ producer it uses that a lot.

---
Q3: Are your patterns made with techno and house in mind, I mean you analyzed specific techno and house patterns or are more randomly?

Nothing is random, We took real drummer lines: Reaggae, Funk, Salsa, Tekno and House style. BUT my DJ producer Silvio ;-) wants to create a new version with more HOUSE/Tekno oriented patterns (even we think of Drum-and-Bass). We add this is the wishlist, no prob ! For sure, in the futur you will get this !

---
Q4: Do you think you can add also swing presets?

Yes, and I can count on you now (we exchanged by private mail) to test the some versions with different SWING Presets. It will not be publish before a couple of weeks, as before I will release upgrades with Accents Patterns Editing/saving + Current Swing but for each rows !!

---
FUTURE ? In the next weeks (10 to 15 days max!) ? will publkish a new version:
- Accents Editing
- One Swing per ROws that can be changed .. (now you have the same swing for ALL the rows).
- A special version for the one who bought the plug in at the beginning (yes a surprise!!).


-- END :-)

Hi!
So each pad gets 99 of it's own patterns-or saved sequences- in the pro version, is that right? So that's 5.7?10^30 combinations or overall patterns?

@braduro yes you got it !

dead link!

@olivereks link seems to work for me (though did take a while to load)
