Absolutely. I have or have worked with a number of sequencers, most analog, but some digital/MIDI, and this is totally true.
The Schrittmacker is totally cool... have had friends rave about it. I don't usually build up the hugely complex stuff like you can do with that, but it is always temping when I see it.
Definitely. I'm always good about reading (and re-re-re-reading) manuals, but (as we all know) sometimes the manuals kinda suck or are incomplete.revtor wrote: ↑Thu Apr 29, 2021 2:45 pmAs you get into more complicated sequencers with more possibilities you are definitely more involved in the user interface and user experience that the coder or programmer behind it has needed or chosen to implement.
Whatever you choose, at some point you have to dig in and really give it some effort. RTFnM. Then after a while you will realize if it’s a drag, or if it works for the situation and “music making” mindset that you possess.
I am frequently frustrated by very menu-heavy/shift-key-oriented designs... but on occasion I do get along with them well, so I'm always afraid to discount any.
