Here are some answers to your questions:
- Are any of the Menu Settings persisted when the module is powered off/on?
Yes all menu settings, AB settings, glide settings etc, are saved to eeprom. [ even the CH2 alt CVs ]
- I'm a bit confused about the Fixed Sequence Length function: Does it work when in AB mode? I guess not, since in AB mode the stages control button defines the last step of B and not the overall length of the sequence.
Yes & No.
Depends which split AB mode you are using.
If serial AB mode then no the fixed-length does not work, as the loop points are defined by the split point, and the MAX stages.
If in parralel AB mode, then sequence A can be fixed length.
But if so, does the fixed sequence length setting make any difference to 'forward' when AB mode is used? I'd love to be able to use it, eg. play A 3 times, B 3 times but still reset to stage 0 after e.g 32 clock pulses
It could do. New software implementation is certainly possible.
You mean 32 clock pulses for the total sequence [ A-loops + B-loops ] or 32 clock pulses for each loop ?
- In the manual it says about the A+B CV offset function: "is is useful when creating a looped pattern in Sequence A,
and using a slower pattern in Sequence B to change the key of Sequence A.": Is it possible to use different clock divisions for A and B ? Or how would i have a slower pattern B?
Yes. Although it's implementation is actually stage length multiplication. So the stages can last 2,3,4,5,6,7,8 times longer than the stage length setting.
The multiplication is set by the B loops value [ on switch setting ### for the AB split points ] Sorry it is not very intuitive.
- I have some other behavior i cant quite explain: Power module on. All stages set to 1, all Gates to multiple Gates, Mode set to Fixed Sequence Length, and Split Mode to A. Stage Control is at 4. Now when i start, the sequence plays until step 6 then jumps to the first step and rests there until it starts again after 16 clocks. Why does it only play until step 6 and not until step 8 before it jumps back to 1?
Oh dear !
That would be a bug !
We rather rushed out a new version of the software with quite a few new tweaks, but forgot to check the Fixed Length mode.
Sorry I'll look into that, and send out a firmware update.
