I received and assembled my V5 last week and have some questions and thoughts.
Regarding Midi recorder - Is there a resolution value adjustment? I am free recording from my electronic drum module into the V5 and when I play back the Midi recording to my module -
A. Playback seems quantized and not playing back as was recorded.
B. Does not play the same notes back into my module.
C. Would be very helpful to have a screen to see what notes were recorded into the V5 and be able to scroll through the track and edit the Midi notes. Is this in the works?
D. Have the ability to edit the recorded midi track and import into a pattern in a scene.
Metronome - plays only when transport is playing or recording. Would be great to have the option of having it play all the time. Also suggest having a quicker option to turn metronome on and off using the metronome button - quick press on/off and longer press as the edit function.
Midi Step Mode Screen - suggest a rotary to zoom in and out for easier editing especially when doing many beats per pattern.
Scenes - Pattern Editor Menu - If I change any of the Beats/bar, Beats/pattern and Steps/beat - it changes for all the patterns in the scene. Am I not able to have let’s say 7/4 time for one pattern and 4/4 for a different pattern in the same scene?
While in scene screen the play transport button plays either an audio file or midi file unrelated to the scene. Is this correct?
Generator Chain - Click BPM - when changing tempo goes 63.0 to 64.2 to 65.4 etc. - this resolution needs to be corrected.
If I create a new Midi chain - Arpeggiator - Bypass is automatically ON but still activates my midi device. If you turn this off and the arpeggiator is running, then you can never turn the arp off - gets stuck on. have to remove from chain to stop arp.
Audio Player - suggest a zoom to cursor - instead it just zooms to area nowhere near cursor. Scrolling is with touch screen but can get very tedious with large files. Will crop function be expanded? To crop to new audio file? Right now, not sure what the function of it is as it acts same as loop.
I see now that the touch screen can adjust the waveform amp zoom and zoom range which is great. Placing markers - very difficult to use with fingers on touch screen as marker placement. It’s the only way I could achieve it. Drop marker at cursor location would be an easier option.
