    Do you have plans to make the launchpads work with the Vector kind of like how they work with Numerology?

    It looks pretty cool, not sure if I could find buttons that small -- well, I could actually... But then I've also got a Launchpad or three floating around...

    ROFL... Yes! A friend found it for me.... How exactly did you figure that out???

    A few suggestions which I've discussed with Jim but I've failed to put in writing...

    Rx/Tx Program Change messages for Presets and Scenes. I suggest using channels 1-8 for receiving/transmitting program change messages for individual Parts. Use channel 16 for receiving/transmitting program change messages for Scenes. This would be super useful for those who are syncing two Vectors together or those who are syncing Vector to an Elektron box (or vice versa).

    Rx/Tx a fixed set of MIDI CCs for controlling Part parameters (specifically parameters on the Control pages) and transport functions (specifically Run and Reset, possibly Record). Might also be useful for recording to the CC lanes on the Velocity page. This would allow control of common parameters from an external controller, without having to switch pages.

    An option to use Velocity outputs as a secondary gates, where the Velocity page values control the gate width. This would be useful for modules with an accent input.

    What a brilliant idea, I would be the first to pre order one of these expanders should it materialize.

    Auto scroll of pages of parts

    Eg I have a 24 step sequence

    The page and scrolling LEDS should have option to follow the active step

    I think there is no Euclidean function in Vector yet? Could not find the term in the manual.

    I would love a euclidean kind of trigger function to set high hat patterns or other note pulses and so on.

    Euclidean placement of trigs with a random ratchet capability would be very cool

    So many great ideas here!
    +1 almost everywhere!

    I'd like to add:
    - Swapping Parts (of the same kind)
    - Folders and basic sorting for projects (without computer)
    - Lowest/Highest note limiter when generating
    - Ability to start/stop individual parts at any point of the bar/beat grid while Vector playing

    Another suggestion that has popped up in discussions:

    An 'Edit Buffer' approach to handling presets. So, instead of automatically saving all edits immediately to a preset, you have to initiate the save. On-the-fly edits are done in an edit buffer. This would also open up a trick I've been mulling over, which I call 'Cue Edit' : you make a bunch of edits to a preset, but the system only plays the saved one, then you can trigger the new changes to occur on a new bar.

    I have to check w/ the memory usage, but all this might mean loosing a preset, but most folks seem OK with that.

    Cheers,
    Jim

    Use Encoder 9 to move the 'cursor' -- works both forwards and backwards.

    I am looking into options for that now...

    FYI: The Rec page currently only shows up to 16 steps, I'm working on an update that will allow you to page through up to 64 steps for longer sequences.

    [... that was added in FW 1.0.10 - jim]

    Cheers,
    Jim

    Absolutely love this sequencer! Here are some of my feature requests:

    Copy between parts. I would like to run the same exact sequence on multiple parts at different rates. It takes a while to set up manually with all the options..

    I would like to see the chance opps pages re arranged as others have requested.

    Sequence length as a target in one of the internal sub sequencers would be really cool.

    Transpose destination from CV input as others have requested.

    Real time updating of sequence start position and sequence length values on the sequence control page. This is important for monitoring effects of external modulation.

    A range option for generated sequences. This is another big one. Currently, generated sequences have a very wide octave range, would be nice to have some control over that.

    Might sound crazy, but would be nice to be able to use a part to sequence presets/scenes of the other parts. I don’t know how feasible this is tho.

    Finally, more algorithm generator presets please! Drum patterns, bass lines, etc.

    Thanks for listening!

    In STEP RECORD mode using either native keys or external via USB or MIDI, a button to press to insert a rest rather than dialing a step forwards. Hitting keys and then a rest to punctuate in the old SH101 style is more intuitive to me.

    [ Added in 1.0.10: Push Encoder 9 to mute/un-mute a step during Step Record -- jim]

    A couple additions:

    - A way to directly set the current sequence step--- which could be tricky to find a button combination for, but it could be a hidden mode on the encoder switches. Or probably better: Cue + White Step Button from any edit mode...

    - External trigger for Sub Sequencers.

    Downside = if your routings are non-standard and you have auto-save on, you can easily erase them -- you have to make sure to power-cycle your system before stopping the sequence to avoid a save. Or, turn off autosave for a bit...
    This is great for now, thanks for sharing. I just have to be diligent about preventing the auto-save.
