[Wish List] Yocto OS Update Thread

Postby kluber » Feb 6th, '14, 13:56

Hi everybody,
Let's tell what we would love to see in the next Software Updates!
And also a Bug Report if You ever find one...

-Shuffle / Groove
It would be awesome to set a groove values for each pattern!

-Solo /unSolo
Mute /unMute is a really clever and great function. The unMute with the Tempo Pot is perfect! I wish I could do exactly the same with a Solo / unSolo function. When you want to mute all the instruments tracks except the Kick in one push it's hard to perform!

-Stutter Function
Like the Volca Beat for instance! I don't know if it's even possible...but would be nice though!

-Random/Reverse Pattern
Could be a great function as well! With on button you switch the way the steps are played.

-Instruments Play
Like other TR-X0X, You could play and record a rhythm tapping your step buttons.

-Yocto Midi Slave and DinSync Master
Maybe it's only my Yocto, but I tried to sync a Tr-606 via the Yocto midi syncing and it didn't work. But it worked perfectly when the Yocto is not sync with midi.

-Pattern Edit
For now, You can't mute/unmute the instruments while editing a pattern. I like to play the Yocto while I'm editing in live pattern like fills for instance! Also it could be great if you could switch the pattern while editing. Chaining pattern for editing would ne nice as well!

Your turn Yocto Users! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

-Pattern Length per voice
For example, BD- 16 steps, RS- 9 steps, CH- 12 steps
This allows for continuous looping and variation of pattern (a nice feature in the Sonic Potions LXR)

- Accent Per Instrument
A different accent pattern for BD, SN, LT, etc.
I've noticed that accented rolls (holding down the accent button when rolling a snare, etc.) are independent of Pattern accent, so it seems like this could be done. The Quicksilver 606 CPU has individual instrument accent and global accent (in a retrofit to the TR-606).

- Rotate Pattern
Rotate left and right per step, per four steps, per 8 steps, both per pattern and per instrument.

- MIDI Note Out
with velocity (or, at least, accent)
What I envision is being able to sequence both the internal Yocto drums and external gear, all with separate instrument tracks, so the Yocto internal instruments output MIDI notes (for example) C2-B2 and separate instrument tracks output MIDI notes C3-B3. In this way, the Yocto drums and, for example, the external 9090 drums are played from the same sequencer.
The external instrument tracks (C3-B3) could be selected by selecting NC on the INST SELECTOR, then hold SHIFT and select instrument with INST SELECTOR(?). I don't know what would be the best way to implement it...


- Pattern Fills

I too would like this, but I don't know how you'd get around the fact that, for example, the 909 has a crash cymbal, which obviously the Yocto does not..

i guess using the 16 step buttons you could select instruments, which is how the TR-707 works..

Delayed start/stop (like featured in Mungo Sync, MidiPAL, n0nx0x2)

How it works: when external master is playing, you can stop the device (but it keeps counting beats), and by pressing start again (while holding a button, in n0nx0x this is FUNC+START) it will start playing perfectly in sync on the next bar

You could use one of the extra trigger voices (TR1, etc.)

+1 for shuffle :D

Also the ability to sequence external hardware via MIDI would be a welcome addition. I have an AKAI XR20, a TR-505, I've just picked up a Novation Drumstation and I wouldn't mind building a TR-9090 in the future. Would be sweet to be able to sequence them with the Yocto.

intro/fill in - a/b variations
in general I think the sound of the 808 have lot to share with the original sequencer, I dont know, maybe a "808 original mode" that the user can choose so that who prefer velocity etc can stick with those.
