You could play a plucked synth with this track. The synth should vary the cut-off frequency with the velocity value. Add a lot of reverb, and maybe also an additional audio delay.<BR>

So: with only two notes, and the MIDI delay we create a sequence which plays 16 notes over 4 bars. If you like to experiment a bit more with this configuration, enter additional notes at various positions.

The step repeat function in conjunction with a groove pattern is a great field for experiments. E.g. if you try different notes, but also track lengths, you will get very different variants on each change.

In order to ensure, that I don't play wrong notes which are out of scale during this recording, I played the synth via the Live function with Force-to-Scale enabled. This function can be activated with UTILITY-&gt;LIVE. Activate Force-to-Scale with the FTS option, select Bus2 (and not Bus1, because it's used by the transposer), adjust the MIDI IN port, and set the Bus mode to "Play" instead of T&A:<BR>
