Euclidean patterns in Eloquencer
Hi @larsdaniel ! Thanks for the feedback and the good ideas! 🙂
At some point we thought on having a specific mode for Euclidean, but after thinking a little bit we thought that it could be achieved using some of the Eloquencer features like 'track length' + 'step mode DIV/x' + 'track reset configuration' + 'track shift'
I am agree with you that some specific procedures, like yours, could help in the process of creating Euclidean but at the same time we didn't want to complicate the overall usability to improve a specific feature.
Anyway I keep your ideas in case we decide to implement specific features for Euclidean rhythms in the future. Thanks!
Ok. But how would this complicate overall usability, exept for one added item in the Options? Like, if the user wants to keep things as they are, one does not engage that particular option.
On the brighter side of things, I would consider it a rather strong selling point. In a compact setup, it would be such a feature that would allow for dumping a separate module for euclidean patterns. And in my view, a feature, that is much more powerful than e.g. the LFO feature. Actually, I just realize now, that it would go hand in hand with the LFOs: We could have euclidean patterns from the gate of a track, while the CV could be sending an LFO. I think that sounds like a really powerful utilisation of the hardware.
(And adding such a strong feature as an update, will make you look really good, in comparison the too often seen firmware-abandoned products.)
I am agree with you, that feature doesn't complicate the things too much, but it adds a layer over the step edition mode that, under our opinion, needs to be really clean.
I will note your suggestion and try to thing about it to add it in future updates.
Thank for the feedback ! 🙂
Could you just add a Euclid Randomization option under the Randomization menu?
@mekohler could be interesting, a macro that randomizes multiple layers like step edition, the track length...
I write it down. Thanks for the feedback ! 🙂
The macro would first randomize Track length, then select a random # of enabled steps, then spread those out using the Euclid algorithm. This is how I do it in my drum apps...Adding this Euclid / Polyrhythm generator would greatly enhance the type of beats you can immediately get.
Any word on this?
