    Yes, I find myself using this shortcut all the time too, but it requires 2 hands, and the encoder button action is not used anyway, so it could make a good use. But indeed, a preference would be nice: some would maybe prefer to use them for part mutes e.g...

      Could we possibly have an option to force the chord sequencer to scale? And an option for chords to also diatonically ‘survive’ transposition of the root? I finally tried out the midi outs as well as chord sequencer today, so much fun but my music theory is a little shabby and I’d like an ‘easy’ mode at least for busting ideas out quickly. Maybe a scale degree system similar to Numerology 4’s chord sequencer?

        I’d like that very much too!

          Automated Evolution

          Hi Jim,

          I would like to see a feature which does this:

          - Set variation settings in GLOBAL for key, scale, GEN and EVO

          - Have an option to AUTOMATE evolution that would allow:

          i. set the evolution variance high, medium, low for rhythm

          ii. set the evolution variance high, medium, low for pitch

          iii. set the number of steps at which each evolution should occur (or a whole note, 2W, half or whatever)

          iv. if any of the above could have CV input for example an LFO input to Vector controlling aggressiveness of evolution would be great.

          Thanks,

          Steve.

            Wraparound the previous and next buttons (so if you are looking at steps 57-64, next takes you back to 1-8)

            Transpose as a target of Mod1 and 2
            I was about to raise the idea of stacked chance ops per step. Its a good one. Even just 2 layers, like the modulation. CHNC 1 and CHNC 2.

            Also, I would like a probability that only occurs if the previous chance operator activated (or if it did not activate). So if A occurs then B will occur, or if A does not occur then B will occur, reverse of both.

              +1... setting a scale should force everything to it.

              I mean, at the input stage. So that the sequencer only offers chords that are in scale, but not modifying already recorded notes.

              Hope that makes sense.

                This would be very cool - if the follow behaviour was automatically disabled as soon as you selected a step! I think this would be the most natural way to program and trouble-shoot patterns. This of course means the "follow enable" would have to be directly accessible with a button or two.

                  A playlist for scenes is needed.. this would be the equivalent of an arranger or song mode.

                    +1

                    Ok, apparently the forum software thinks it's impossible to make a meaningful statement in less than 10 characters. How about this:

                    Plus one, seconded, I think this is a really good idea.

                    Which is what "+1" means.

                      A deep documentation

                      My wish is to get a real documentation, explaining all features.
                      I know it's the nightmare of any programmer but the vector is so powerful it deserves such an effort.

                        I share that wish.

                        Suggestion: get the Vector in the hands of Sunshine Jones.
                        Hopefully he’ll love it and write a manual for it.
                        He’s written some great extra manuals for other hardware such as the Roland Boutique series.
                        Or: do the same with the guy who just wrote the extended manual for the Deluge.

                          1. Euclidian Rhythms - on gate tracks and on Expander trigger outs if possible.


                          3. Envelope outs and/or LFOs on the Pitch or Velocity outs - or even the option to swap the gate out for this..?

                          It would make the Vector a truly multi-functional CV generator much like the complex function generators of Buchla (eg the venerable MARF ) ;-)
                          Totally second this. The expander trigger outs could be so much more useful. Why not copy Pamela´s New Workout for the trigger outs?
                          Seriously, PNW is fantastic (I own two), and I see no reason why the Vector should be less capable in that area.

                          Especially important for me would be random gates/triggers, and euclidian rhythms (defined, not random). Of course, having a random CV generator is always useful.
