Midi Out Beat Fill - Option for shorter note length by default

When using gear such as PULSAR23, which is an analog drum machine - I have to select all of the notes after beat fill to allow the drums to trigger properly. Usually I have to set note length of 0.25 to get a coherent beat. Otherwise the notes seem to be too long for it to recognize each trigger.

What is the problem?

Have to readjust note length every single time I try midi beat fill

What do you want to achieve?

To make it immediately choose the note length I set before pressing fill (maybe?)

Are there any workarounds?

Yes I have to change note length every single time I fill a beat, which can be frustrating when trying to create interesting mixtures of different selections and beat fill genre change quickly

Any links to related discussions?


Any references to other products?

Pulsar23 . It operates specifically by note length and the notes seem to overlap on default fill

If you create a first MIDI step with the desired note length, then the next steps you create should keep the note length you have defined. This is simpler than going to a setting to set your desired note length (which might change from project to project).

Okay thanks I will try this, hopefully will work. You are saying if I set the note length first before I press beat fill, it will print the beat fill in that way? I am not sure why I did not figure this out when I was playing with it. I will try !

I’m on vacation and I don’t have the Play with me, so maybe I’m wrong, but I hope this will work.

I finally tested this, and it works. I think we can archive this draft, then.
