Re: Variable gate length
i should have mentioned..
i already did this thing in the first beta version of my soft synth, as part of it's sequencer
it was even more extreme, since there wasn't no dinsync clock there, i had fractional gate length
so i did it step-length per-step, meaning, all 16 notes of the pattern had a "step length" attribute which had 8 possible values (i could have made it even more dense)
well.. to be honest, it does NOT sound good on a 303
now in my current version i have a virtual dinsync clock (because now the sequencer works much more like the x0x sequencer) and i made the same sort of step length but a single attribute per pattern (not per-step, didn't want to waste more memory) and now it relies on the dinsync clock to work, just like the x0x would
aaaand once again, i feel stupid, why did i put that feature again? it is useless, it doesn't sound good
tell me if you want audio samples to hear it yourself..
what i mean is: if i want to make the 303 sound less 303 - i'd override the sequencer and use midiplay (to control it via midi notes with whatever note length i want) .. but i almost never have such a desire ;]
