The MicroFreak sequencer lets you record and save two sequences per preset. (Part A and Part B)
To record your sequence, can use the following methods:
In Stop, press Record to enable the Step Recording.
In this mode:
Touch a key sets the note for the select step.
Release the key moves the focus to the next step.
The Rate encoder lets you select a step.
Modify a parameter value assigns it to a modulation track and defines its value for the selected step.
In Play, press Record to enable the Real-Time Recording.
In this mode:
The melodies played are be recorded on the fly.
Touch a control assigns it to a modulation track.
The modulation LED blinks until the motion has been recorded.
The automation record stops when the first recorded step has been reached.
Send to MicroFreak
Select a Project on the Computer panel and click on Send to MicroFreak.
/!\ This action will overwrite the MicroFreak content. /!\
Don't forget to backup your project on your computer first.
Recall to Computer
On the MicroFreak panel, click on Recall to Computer.
A new project called "Device" will be created on the computer panel.
You can also transfer the presets individually by simply dragging and dropping them for the MicroFreak panel to the computer panel and vice versa.
Assign a Destination
The final three destinations (Assign1, Assign2 and Assign3) can be assigned to the parameter of your choice.
To do that, it's very simple:
- Hold one of the Assign buttons
- Turn one of the MicroFreak controls
- The screen now displays the parameter associated to the destination.
Modulate a Modulation amount
In is also possible to modulate the modulation amounts assigned on the modulation Matrix.
To do that, it's pretty simple as well:
- Hold one of the Assign buttons.
- Turn the Matrix encoder to select your Source x Destination point.
- Release the Assign button
