Selthym, just got back from work and tried this out: works a treat! Exactly what I wanted, thank you so much.And using MIDI effect racks opens up some GREAT potential for macro controls etc.selthym wrote:Hi Selthym, are you able to elaborate on how to set this up? How would the MIDI racks trigger notes in Operator?Leon Tricker wrote:selthym wrote:Use 8 Midi (Instrument) Racks instead of 8 tracks per part. This way you get get it done in 4 tracks instead of 36.
Insert a pitch effect and a velocity effect (and a note length effect if you like). Select all devices and click group. Now expand this rack so you can see this 'chain'. Copy and paste the chain 7 more times. I would name these steps 1 through to 8.
Map your midi controller so that the control (fader / rotary) for step 1's velocity is mapped to the step 1 chains velocity. Do this for all the controls.
Create a new clip on this track. Place a note of the same pitch at the appropriate interval. I would place these notes at 1.1 1.3 2.1 2.3 3.1 3.3 4.1 4.3 of a 1 bar clip.
Go into the envelope editor in the clip and select 'midi effect rack' > 'Chain Selector' as the envelope to edit. Draw in an envelop that steps through each chain in line with the notes you drew. Now each note should be sent to only that steps 'chain'.
I would personally now drop a scale effect after this rack and then the single instance of operator, or any other instrument you please.
Save this set so it is easy to recall whenever you want to start a new project.
REALLY excited about getting another BCR2000 now to take hands on control of all this!
