A new sequencer but...Where's the Groove?????

edited December 2008 in General
Hi, perhaps i don't see it, but in the step editors we can't anymore change manually the groove ??????? We just have to choose with 1/16, 1/16t in step resolution, .... but we can't define exactly the start of a key in a pattern???? Why but why????


tell me i'm wrong...please

  • They removed it because of the new resolution of the sequencer... But it might be back in 1.3.1... Me too I freaked out when I noticed that it was gone, prolly the hottest feature in beatmaker.
  • Hello,

    Actually, if you want to define *exactly* where a sample will start to play, it is better to change the resolution of the step sequencer to something higher (like 1/32) and place the step accurately. This practise is much more accurate than with the old Groove Editor, and also permits you to add more than 16 active steps on each track !
    Anyway, as we were saying in another thread, if some people find it quicker or funnier to use the Groove Editor to change the timing of a step, we might put it back again for version 1.3.1.

    I mentioned this in the other thread but it's worth saying again. The finer resolution is great and essential, but it is not a replacement for the groove editor, just at the groove editor is not a replacement for the finer resolution in the step sequencer. These are separate features and I think people will use them to do different things - in one case I have decided the notes I want and I want to create a slightly different feel (groove). In the other case I am trying to create rhythms that are more complex than I can do with 16th notes.

    First, I wanna say thank you for the totally awesome app and great community. This is my first post and I would be seriously remiss if I didn't admit that I cried tears of joy when I bought this thing and realized it wasn't just a toy, but a serious tool that would increase my business efficiency and make me a better artist.

    That said, I cried tears of sadness when I saw that the groove edit features were axed. After all, everytime I beamingly showed the app to somebody they suspected Beatmaker was just a toy until I flipped to the groove edit page. Groove edit makes Beatmaker the real deal. It should be enhanced, not eliminated.

    Please, please put it back.
