Notes Replace Mode when entering notes directly on the Tracker or via MIDI.
A recording mode in which while live-recording, it will replace existing notes on a track, when new notes are entered for the step. Either when recording directly on the Tracker or via MIDI.
When recording notes on the tracker it records on the first pass, afterwards when you press a pad for a note or a slice it will only record something if the step is empty, nothing can be recorded between a step and note end.
Ability to select/arm a track, press record, capture notes and keep adding them whilst replacing old notes. It would be easier to program using input from the tracker pads. This would allow you to listen while you are recording the notes, as at the moment it feels like you have only one chance to get it right. If you haven’t recorded the notes right you have to delete and then start again.
This option could make live-recording more versatile.
You can record the steps and then change them with the knob dial. It’s ok but a bit time consuming when you have more than one pattern, you end up spending most of the time searching. You can arm record and change the notes by pressing the pads but you are chancing and everything is guess working.
The Octatrack allows you to replace notes continuously, new note in - old one out.
this is a feature included in some daws when you can choose how to record, merge/replace/etc
