Chill GTR Phrases V1- latching Unify patch Drums
Firstly – great job with Chill GTR Phrases V1- really inspiring work. I have a question, that is proving hard to resolve, I have watched the videos, read the manual and tried but I am having a moment of total thickness.
I want to latch a UNIFY drum beat so that I can start and stop by pressing a key on the keyboard.
Here is the scenario
- Select "skippy lushy EP" pad from Chill GTR Phrases V1
- Select "Slip808 pipe down" ( Unify patch) as drums then add load into new layer
- Set LM poly or mono and then Latch mode on Skip 808 track – drums wont latch
- Double click and go into Unify 808 (Kick snare,Rez fall NoizClap and Rest of Kit ) set all the tracks to Latch poly/or mono and then set the Lighted green L to latch – still won’t latch
Whatever way I do it the Skip 808 starts when I press the key but when I release it it stops. I have tried all sorts of combinations including setting in the midi control. Am I missing something – what's the secret to making this work? - any advice welcome - Andy
Steps 1-3 are all correct. What's happening is that Unify's Transport is still set to its default trigger mode "MIDI / Quick Stop", so it starts when you press a key down, then stops again (stopping the drums) as soon as all keys are lifted.
The step you're missing is to set the Transport also to Latch mode, and set the key-range for both the latched layer and the Transport the same--ideally, just the one key you're using to start/stop the groove. The best way to do this is to right-click all four note-boxes as indicated in the screenshot I've attached below (so they all show a question mark, indicating they're listening for MIDI), then press the key you want to use.
Thank you appreciated - Andy
