Is 1.4.1 of the other OS the same in that respect too? Its pretty handy to be able to specify midi channels if you have various gear sharing a sequencers midi out

no, in 1.4.1 you still can select channels as usual.

Only in this new "pro" versions I dare to be that mean... my idea was, as normally with any gear you can select the channels, it would be OK to have exactly one where this is impossible:)

hmmm, thats a bad ommission :evil:

I'm sure I am not alone in having my x0xb0x sitting on a hight channel number, while channel 1 is used by more 'important' bits of gear. Can it be returned to the earlier way of working??

Also, in the spirit of suggestions....how about the runtime variations employing a non-global start/stop step number? eg slide RTV can be for steps 1-5, accent for steps 1-16 etc etc. It may be useful to have the value memorised when switched off though? I KNOW! - a global setting for steps (which is same for all patterns, and memorised when switched off), which can then be modified away from that global setting on a per item (slide, accent..) basis

And lastly, can you please explain the meaning of your slide diagram earlier in this thread. Its too cryptic :?

well, I`m surprised: You know that I don`t deactivate things to annoy anyone, or because of any other bad thought, right? I have to do this to get space in the memory. There is no choice. At least not, if I want the firmware to be usable for me (and you must understand I do these things mainly for me). So, if you want to use this "pro" version, you have to live with the downsides. Except, I can post different versions of the firmware, with different - fixed - MIDI channels, that may help? Maybe 1,2,15,16 ?

And not sure if thats clear: In MarOS1.4.1 you CAN select channels as usual!

Reasonable ideas. I know how to get some bytes in the 1.4.1 code, but not in the Pro code, there these are used already. And wouldnt be enough probably anyway:( So, not very optimistic about this.

And lastly, can you please explain the meaning of your slide diagram earlier in this thread. Its too cryptic.

Hmm, well... It`s 8 cases of what the xoxbox plays for 2 subsequent steps. It`s an example of when the two notes are of 7 semi distance. The arrow means, the note slides to the next pitch, instead of playing a new note. The interesting point is, that there are new notes added on the odd 1/32 positions, and that these for some case slide to next "real" note. the difference between 3/4, 5/6, 7/8 is the pitch of the new added note: same as 1st step, in between 1st and 2nd step, 1 octave lower than 2nd step.

yeah, be handy. can't remember what midi channel i use :oops: , is either 15 or 16

if there is no possibility of my WONDERFUL new suggestion fitting, but some space exists you could add the slides change to 1.4.1 too? would also still like to see the start of half-tempo mode locked to the beginning of the next measure as that still kicks-in upon pressing the button

OK, that makes sense now. need to experiment though, as wasn't getting very exciting results with my (probably poor) sequences

Hi, I don't know is this has been covered already but I have a problem and I think it might be to do with the maros software on my xox. I have a mc303 running as a slave to my xoxbox with another synth in the midi chain, when I have my xox in midi sync and play the mc303 is syncs fine, but when I have another external device receiving midi notes the xox seems to start and stop the sequence and play the notes. How can I have it set up to sync like normal?
Let me know if my explanation is poor and I'll try explain it better.

Thanks

So MarOS is no longer supported or what?

I'd need a build of MarOS pro with the MIDI channel fixed to 16. Any tips in achieving this would be appreciated!

Guess I'll be using the non-pro build for now.. In any case, much obliged for your hard work, Mario!
