Default MidiSwitchMaybeTheAnswer..

I'm firing up my Numeroogy Pro setup, and although I've used the program for a long time and have tried all kinds of ways to reach musical goals, sometimes I dig up techniques that someone new to the program probably just get from the start.

I'm thinking here about making a realtime comp from four different sequencers..

It makes great sense to get variation just by hopping from one sequencers output to another using a midiswitch, which if you didn't know this module allows you to switch quickly from up to four different sequencers..

This works smoothy and allows you to think in phrases or types of melodic movements for phrases..

Sequence nr 1 might have the main melodic theme, nr 2 could have some fast and wide range skales or trills used as a filler then nr 3 might have some repeated notes, nr 4 an arpeggio, then you just hop around using the midi switch to create an incredible diversity in your midi output and this is extremely quick to setup.

One thing though to get the most out of this technique is to use the midi switch in "Sequenced" mode the little parameter drop down menu that appears in this mode on the panel should be set from 1-4. Then use a Velocity sequencer with an output of 1-4 and patch it's velocity out into the midi sequencers CV program in, set the velocity sequencers clock value to something that makes sense like 4xW and now you can program your switch to move precisely as you want to timewise...

This is so easy and fun to work with, and is another approach to getting variation in a controlled way into your arrangements..
