Step automation in Redrum
 
I would like to automate the "Step" value in Redrum (including possibility to control this via MIDI).

This makes sick drum breaks when I control steps amount with the mouse. Go and try it, you'll see how cool this is...

Come on
 
Guys, come on, vote for Redrum steps automation. I assure you're gonna love this!! This is suitable for idm, glitch, ambient, psychill and various experimental styles.

Pardon my ignorance, but I don't even know what this is. Any chance you could describe what you're meaning?

Does this mean to be able to map via midi the buttons on the Redrum? So, that if I had my MC-303, I could potentially control the step sequencer using that?

It's the number of steps for the step sequencer at the bottom of the Redrum. If it is playing while you're changing the steps value it puts out some pretty funky beats, like drum rolls etc you do have to have written in patterns to cover the amount of steps you change it to though otherwise it doesnt play anything until write it in.

You could probably get a similar effect out of the Buffre RE.

I was asking this feature from Reason2 I think

Similar, but in fact this is something very much different and gives you different type of artistic freedom than Buffre. And if you control the pitch and pan of some samples via CV on the back side, you'll get a glitchy breaking all-time-morphing drum monster...;)

This is possible, its just a bit work around but easy to achieve. Drop redrum into combinator and assign a rotary to redrums pattern select. Now copy and paste your drumloop on each pattern, up to 32. and select for pattern A 1 1 step, for A 2 2 steps, A 3 3 steps and so on.

You could also download our combinator updates for the rough connection vol 1,2 & 3 packs. It's works more controlled but the breaks are pre programmed so when you don't have these packs just replace the missing drumhits with any others in the NN-XT sampler. But you have to create a account to download these combinators. You will find on the freebie page also a lot cool dnb and dubstep samples for free !

Of course I had this idea of switching patterns with different lengths before, but this is something far much different than changing steps. Reason switches to newly selected pattern only when the pointer of the last pattern is at the end of the pattern or when the pointer is aligned to 16th step (or something like this). If Redrum would switch the pattern right when you select it, it would be much closer. But it doesn't. It alignes. And that's the problem. When you change "steps" amount with the mouse, it restarts the pattern right when you set new "steps" value and it's out of rhythm alignment, and THAT'S the point why it's needed.

Start your Reason, load some Redrum, press play. Click the mouse on the "Steps" indicator, keep mouse down (clicked) and move it up and down. It changes steps amout very quickly and Redrum responses immediatelly and makes very much different beats, more random, more breaking, more sophisticated...

+1

And the resolution of the pattern also while they are at it.
Both simple yet long overdue features.

The same goes for the Matrix sequencer.
