I am trying to understand something about the FX Columns. I'm a bit stuck in the Elektron mindset where you put a lock on step one, it only locks a parameter for step one, and the locked parameter then returns to its original programmed state for every other step. So lets use probability for my example, in the NerdSEQ what I'm finding is that if I put probability of 50% on step one, then every following step will inherit that probability of 50% until I place a probability of 100% on a following step. If you turn on FX then you must always have a step where it turns off or resets to default? Is that correct?
Yes that is totally correct. Many parameters work like a knob which you turn into a position until you turn it back again.

Yep that's right!

Thankfully there is a Reset Track FX option on the Nerd menu in case you've accidentally left an FX at a value you don't want.

Also on the setup menu there is "Reset FX On Seq Stop" option which can be useful.

And you can see what these FX are set to by pressing the Patch button

Thanks for the clarification. Thinking of them as knobs makes sense. Does a Patch function the same, just acting as a bunch of knobs on a single step?

If both trigger & cv expanders are installed, is it possible to ‘link’ TR1 & CV1 on the expanders, so that TR1 automatically sends a trigger out for a new note in a CV expander pattern? Similar to how CV & trig are linked on the local outputs?

Not that I’m aware of. I’ll be honest, the expanders are a little funky and don’t integrate as well as you might hope.

Trigger adn CV expanders got to be used on diffferent tracks and can only be combined like this. However, with the CV16 you can also fire envelopes and a note + envelope something you can do from one track. Or use the local trigger output together with a CV.

Might be kind of interesting if there was a setting in the setup menu where you could configure this behavior so that FX would snap back to the previous value after the duration of the step. I'm sure it's not that easy since in order for that to happen the original value would need to be temporarily stored so it can be reverted after each step where FX are applied.

It is nothing I will ever do. And just practically it makes not really sense since you really don't want to fill in a fx value 64 times per pattern just to keep that value. Not to mention that the fx field can't be used for anything else then.

Just came here to say that the new i2c expander is going to be fantastic! Is there an ETA on these?

I like the idea of the accumulator feature on the metropolix sequencer. Does anyone have any ideas on how you could go about setting up something similar on the nerdseq?

Watch this video starting at the 27:00 minute mark.

There was a long thread about this on the Nerdseq forum...I'm not sure what the final analysis is. I think you should be able to do this with an implementation of the PTCH and FX+ commands in a table, but there is some debate about they can be crafted into an appropriate substitute on that thread.

I haven't tried it but I'm fairly certain the FX addition+ stuff can go there.

make your loop, set the initial value in the beginning, have FX+ add values, once it loops over again the value resets.

What I'm not sure if you can do just like the metropolix is have a ceiling where it resets. It does have a max value hmmm.

Check the manual, starts at bottom of page 29.

Can the NerdSeq have independent BPM on each track?

Individual clock dividers/multipliers per track based on the bpm. And also different step timings (groove) per step which would allow also very additional odd stuff per track.

yeah because of the groove setting you can almost have a different timings on each step. It's pretty crazy.

Still love my nerdseq. But I’m using it fairly basic.
So I want to know it more. So

What video tutorial is the most relevant and up to date?

Probably the non-English ones by XOR.

If you know basis functions I’d say pick someone creating songs on YouTube and follow along and create the same thing, but with the nerdseq instead.

Like Ihor or that modular cookbook guy. It’s quite a fun challenge, and the nerdseq is def up for it.

Fun idea but I aint got the skills I think. I still have to wrap my head around tables.

I’ll check the non English ones. :))

I can't vouch for what's the "best", but I put together that particular cheat sheet about 1-2 years ago. While it was current at the time, it hasn't been updated to reflect any of the firmware changes since. I also don't know of another one that exists, other than some of the raw text lists that you can find on the XOR forum.

The dev should provide both his aggressively maintained manual and a quick guide. IMHO

Not that he isn't a hero already on dev work mind you.
