I’m demo’ing Dark Planet, looking for some more detailed information on Drum patches; how to tweak the patterns.
It looks like each patch has specific rhythm pattern that can be triggered from keys (represented as gray on the on-screen keyboard), which is built on top of the slices. Each slice has a rhythmical piece inside and is placed in the upper key area (represented white). Some magic behind the patch seems to be playing back those slices when a gray key is pressed, one at a time, as the tick advances. For instance, at the tick 0, the slice at C3 is played, and at the tick 2, C#3, tick 3 for D3, and so on.
Now, the tick length for each slice does not look even. Some slice may have longer tick length.
This is based on my observation of the animation of the sequence I found in the “tool” backstage page.
I’m wondering if there is a MIDI pattern for each patch that I can copy & paste into the Cubase MIDI tracks, so that I can replicate the patch and eventually tweak the pattern and make variations.
I couldn’t find the information of this kind in the rather terse manual.
