Just installed my EME, and I see how I can put it in live record mode to input notes, but I was hoping I'd be able to select an individual step (holding down one of the 16 step buttons), and hit a key on my MIDI keyboard to store that note, instead of turning the encoder.  Is that possible?  Thanks!

Hi!

In this first Firmware release it is not present, but we strongly consider this for the next major FW update.

You can use a MIDI controller with encoder and buttons to modify notes in many different ways. For example you can map 16 encoder to 16 step rotaries, and 16 buttons to 16 steps (we call it 'step focus'). So if you are in CV mode, track A, and you modify first rotary you will be changing the step 1 CV value, if you change to track B and go to Gate Length and move rotary 2 you will be changing Gate Length value of step 2.

Thanks for the feedback we will try to release that suggestion soon.

Thanks for reading my feedback -- I think it would be a great feature to directly enter notes for steps like that.

As for your suggestion for using a MIDI controller with its own encoders, would you be willing to make a video showing how to configure that with a BeatStepPro?  That sounds interesting.

We will prepare some videos next week, we were going to do the demo with Midi Fighter Twister and the classic BCR2000, I will try to find a BSP, it is more or less the same thing, assign specific channel and CC. Some controllers accept feedback information to control their LEDS, some others not. I'm not sure about BSP.

Just got my Eloquencer + EME hooked up to a USB MIDI keyboard, and after testing live rec the next thing I tried was to try to input notes with the keyboard in the step,edit mode holding the step button and pressing a key just like the op suggested. Feels like a really intuitive way to input notes. I really hope this makes it to the next firmware update!

I googled BCR2000 and Winter Modular in the hope someone had tried to map them to Eloquencer and found this! I have a BCR lying around and thought it would be a great partner to the Eloquencer, do you have anything to share on this already? I am going to have a sit down with my BCR2000 tonight to have a look if I can get them to work together so any tips and tricks would be great!

yes I have some tips !!
I could share the template I used to do the tests but are just test templates, they don't have a performance or edition purpose at all, right now it is a mess. If you can't do it I can try to do a more usable template.
The most important thing is the type of incremental you choose for the rotaries. I'm not sure but I think the good one is 'relative binary offset', I need to check.
This configuration has to match the EME/Eloquencer configuration FUNC + MIDI > MIDI IN > Contr. rotary type > change all to inc
I use BC manager. This SW rotaries can be a little bit annoying, click the rotary and go as faraway as possible to have fine touch.
The pictures I attach correspond to the focus step edition configuration, STEP 1, that means CH 2 CC 22.
To find other parameters please refer to the EME manual.
I'm here if you need help ! 🙂

thanks for the reply and tips! gonna have a look tonight, currently have the zaquencer loaded so have to return the BCR to it's original state to try this out, but I'm excited to see if I can get it running!
