    Looks like fun... Now I just have to hook it up to my newly midi-modded tr-808!

      These videos are awesome! I especially like that the written introductions include references to interesting artists and traditional compositional techniques. There's a great educational value even for people that do not (yet) use Numerology. Very well done!

              The latest ones include Volta, SilentWay and the Launchpad:

                Videos are great to see! Especially like written introductions with references to interesting artists and traditional techniques. This is a great educational value even for people that do not know about how to use Numerology.

                  Drum Programming within N3

                  What is the best way to run a 1 measure (or any measure) loops in N3? I'm loading a drum or bass loop into drum kit at present. Normally, in the midi environment, I would just start it at the the beginning of the sequence and have the note held until the end of the measure, and then retrigger it as needed. Do I use the Gate? Right now I have the loops doubling, and tripling, on and one into a mess. Do I use some sort of Choke function?

                  HELP!!!

                    You'll need to send it a trigger equal to the loops length from a Drumseq or you could also use a gate sequencer but then you lose the possibility to adjust volume through velocity. You'll need to match Numerologies transport to the loops original timing. Then for a loop lasting one bar just trigger the sample once each whole note. you should also turn loop off for the sample to aid sync.

                    If you want to do flextime and force a sample to match a tempo other than the orignal you could try playing it at a different pitches, but this would be fiddily. Then it would be better to play looped samples from a sample player that has this flex function implemented. The free UVI workstation player does this. I think the Drumkit as it is implemented now is not a loop player it's more just a oneshot player. With a little tweeking it could work out, but it's not really the right tool for the job.

                    Regards

                      Another option: Use a MonoNote to trigger the sample -- and possibly also load the loop into the SamplePlayer instead of the DrumKit. The SamplePlayer has a larger wave display, which makes it easier to tweak loop points (if you need to). For the MonoNote Pattern, either setup a step that is 1 bar long with at 95% gate, or use a shorter subdivision (say 1/16 notes) where all steps but the last one are tied. The advantage of the MonoNote here vs. the DrumSeq is that you can tweak that one loop w/o messing up other parts.

                      If you need to adjust the loop speed to match tempo, use the pitch adjust in the SamplerPlayer (or DrumKit) to get it to match, then, if you want, use an AUPitch plugin to adjust it back to the pitch you want. It won't sound like the original if you tweak more than a semitone, but sometimes that's what you'll want...

                      Cheers,
                      Jim
