Default Evolve scope should be single Preset, not all in Playlist

I'm working on arranging long-running looping patterns where the structure is 3 sets of bars - constant / evolve / constant (repeat forever).

This is the second of two requests for feature enhancements that would help arguably this one is a UI bug.

From what I can tell, most of the groups of parameters on modules are scoped to apply to an individual preset in a playlist - for example, in MonoNote, each preset can have different values for settings in the left group (Rate/Mode/Dir, Key, etc) the bottom group (SeqSize, MIDI Channel, etc) and right group (Gate Adj, Vel Adj).

Evolve (Auto) is the odd duck - when switching from preset to preset in a loop, the Auto setting cannot be turned on/off for a single preset, so I can't set the first and third preset to constant patterns.

Go parallel. Use one sequence as the Evolve, and One as the Constant. either mute the output from the one or the other in series. Or use Gate triggers to trigger them alternately

You don't even need to use the preset Loop for this to happen. You could setup three sequences in Gate trigger mode the Two constant variations and the Evolve version . Then just set their Play mode to CVGatedtrigger. take the output from the gated trigger into a 1-4 CV switch set the ClockDiv of the Gate and the switch to match . Connect the outputs from the CV switch to the trigger inputs of the Sequencers. This has the advantage of keeping your overview of whats about to happen to your output.

If you want to use this setup and need more help just ask.


Regards

Wade

I'll put in a request to make that a regular preset-aware parameter. There is a workaround: Use a GateSeq to trigger evolve (via ParamMod), then make sure that GateSeq is either off, or all zeroes in the stack presets that you want to not evolve. A big advantage with this approach is that you get very fine control over when evolve happens.

One tip: when setting up the ParamMod, set Auto-Scale to Off.

Cheers,
Jim

Wow! Jim is right...I ran into this issue tonight (exploring patterns with auto evolve) and realized it wasn't preset specific. Much to my surprise, when pressing auto evolve ALL of my presets were evolving!

However, after setting up this exact modification to my stack, it works like a charm. TOTAL control of when evolve happens. VERY COOL! You just have to remember to connect the GateSeq to the ParamMod with a CV cable ("Gate Out" on the back of GateSeq to "CV in" of the ParamMod) and you're good to go.
