Using a Motion Sequence
What is a Motion Sequence?
On parts other than the Accent part, you can record the changes you make to the sound using the knobs,
and loop them for playback. This data is called a Motion Sequence (refer to p.28 "Motion Sequence").
There are two types of sequence. A "motion sequence" allows you to record any one of the parameters
WAVE, PITCH, MOD TYPE, MOD SPEED, MOD DEPTH, DECAY, PAN, LOW BOOST, or LEVEL for an
individual Part. A "delay sequence" lets you record this data for an individual Pattern.
The following knobs are valid for each part.
Synth parts: WAVE, PITCH, MOD TYPE, MOD SPEED, MOD DEPTH, DECAY, PAN,
Audio In parts: DECAY, PAN, LOW BOOST, LEVEL
Hi-hat, Crash Cymbal, Handclap parts: PITCH, DECAY, PAN, LOW BOOST, LEVEL
As an example, here's how to record the PITCH parameter in
a motion sequence.
1. In Pattern mode, select the pattern that you wish to edit.
2. Press the appropriate part key to select the part that you
wish to edit.
3. Press the MOTION SEQ key to select either SMOOTH or
4. Press the Rec key to enter record-ready mode (the Rec key
will light, and the Play/Pause key will blink).
5. Press the Play/Pause key to start the pattern (the Rec key and Play/Pause key will
6. Move the PITCH knob to create various changes while the pattern makes one cycle
(16 steps x length, or 12 steps x length).
7. After the pattern has completed one cycle after you began moving the knob, the Rec
key will automatically go dark and you will return to Play mode so that you can listen
to the motion sequence that you just recorded.
After pressing the Stop/Cancel key to stop playback, perform step numbers 2 and fol-
lowing for "Saving a pattern that you create" to save the pattern that contains the motion
sequence you just recorded.
There are two types of motion sequence (SMOOTH and TRIG HOLD). During play-
back, switch between these to hear the difference. (Refer to p.28 "Playing a motion se-
It is not possible to modify a motion sequence after it has been recorded. If the results are
not as desired, please re-record your motion sequence.
For an individual part, only one knob can be recorded as a motion se-
quence. If you move two or more knobs when recording a motion se-
quence for an individual part, the effect of the previously-moved knob
will be lost. (Refer to p.28 "Recording a motion sequence.")
