Keystep Pro - Step Edit w/o "preview?" Silent editing?

Post by Overand » Wed May 20, 2020 10:25 pm

OK - this seems like it should be an obvious no-brainer, but I've been unable to figure out a way to do this, via settings, menus, Midi Control Center, reading the manual, etc. (And, my MI Rings arrived today and it's past 11 PM, so, I may have missed stuff).

With a sequence playing (such as one might do during a performance), I want to be able to edit the note in a given step (via "Step Edit") and NOT have that note also PLAY when I tap it.

In other words, I'd like to be able to edit a sequence in step edit, when it's running, without having to get the timing right so I don't just have a random-ish note sound whenever I'm trying to edit.

Having a step-edit function is much less useful if you still have to hit the notes just right if you're using it during a performance. So, I figure I must be missing something, but I've tried:
  • Shift-step edit
  • Holding down the step when hitting the note
  • Trying to do step-editing in "Record" mode rather than playback mode. (Step edit turns off)
  • Going into record mode and holding down the step button then hitting the note (works the same)
I feel stupid here - it seems like this should be a no-brainer. Hell, there's even a feature to do this on my Korg Electribe 2/Sampler. (I don't recall how, but I think it involves holding down the "step edit" or such button when hitting the drum pad). Is this actually a missing feature here? I hope I'm just missing something!
