Hello. I am new here.
Somehow I cloud not find an helpful answer.
I try to sync marbles with an ext. Clock from my Cirklon. But evertime I start the sequencer the position of the signal changes. So how can I get marbles in sync with my other stuff?
Marbles is a random source not a sequencer. It can be clocked but it doesn’t have a reset input. So everytime you start your sequencer it start’s over where it’s left of.
Thank you for your answer. How do get a good working result in combination with other sequencers?
If you stop the clock for 5 seconds, marbles will reset to the “first” step of the sequence and start from that upon restarting of the clock.
Good. That is a useful information.
So, it can be changed in the code, say to 1 or 2 seconds, right?
Yes, but then you won’t be able to sync the module to slow clock (say, quarter notes at 60 BPM).
Ah I see! That’s right so maybe I could repurpose one of the INs to use the reset from my a190 module to manually reset to the first step of the sequence whenever the reset is high?
Yes but that will be a lot of work. There is no notion of “reset” anywhere in the code (except resetting the clock divider on the RATE knob). I’ve recently made a change to also “reset” the drum pattern but that was a terrible hack, because many things in Marbles’ code require already knowing at t what’s going to be done t+1.
Ah ok - I thought I could hook into that and just trigger the code that is used for the 5seconds clock stop->reset routine
