[quote="dubonaire"][quote="slumberjack"]tbh you can do everything live with it. from pre-structured sets to ableton style scene variation to patter based hit and load or kamikaze mode (developing everything on the fly).
my post above we're mainly about kamikaze mode and that's a way to get lost pretty fast in my experience. it's in my views perfect sequencer to play kamikaze mode on stage but it's a like a wild horse you've to learn to ride.
if i would invest time in playing club shows with it i'd go for like 4 parts structured into scenes with enought stuff not to complicated build to interact fast with new melodies, bass, pecussion and samples.
i've done kamikaze a few times:

but truly figured out that for me working with different gear works better (currently it's a monomachine, 84 hp euro + darktime) & su700 - which i'm looking to replace with something newer) for that. i'm sure y'all gonna chop my head of now but this setup is more immediate than working with the cirklon.
that said if there would be any time to setup the cirklon like with a second set of tracks, pattern/scene structure AND practice on that i'd rethink my current stuff i take with to shows but since i'm constantly running out of time i gotta work with what ready to play. i mean this saturday i'm playing again and as another prove of murphys law i got to work tomorrow to finish stuff from my dayjob...so one more time my preparation schedule is f'ed up and i'm happy to just grab the things around and put em in the pelicase.[/quote]
No I'm with you on this and I think most of us are circling around a zone of agreement. Given the variability in approaches to performing live it goes without saying performers will be more or less satisified with the Cirklon. Without doubt Cirklon's timing is tight. Its midi and CV capacity is second to none. Its performance constraints are easily addressed. Most of us agree it's an amazing sequencer, and arguably as Sequentix asserts its best in class.[/quote]
Nobody has to be with me, I'm just sharing my limted experience of using this gear since 6 years with roughly 3 live shows a year. Since I do sometimes take my stuff to gigs I may see myself entitled to open my mouth as well as all of those who do their guessing games...but probably I just stfu because it's not what everybody think is true or because I'm not trolling every other thread and try to add at least something more than 'waiting list is now two years', 'ck 2 is netter ck 1'. If you find some irony you can keep it...
