Enough people mention the montage / modx UI that I guess it is not an unusual response, but I find it easy in most cases tbh.

If I want an FM or awm init tone I just go category / init and choose whichever I want.

Live sets do exactly what I need them to do, and the ability to add short notes is a nice additional feature.

The fact that performances are self-contained avoids the protracted debate on the fantom thread(!)

I also have a Forte7 - now that has a challenging UI that I don't enjoy using in depth, and I forget how to do things if I haven't programmed anything recently. In comparison I find the modx UI quick and refreshing to use.

Is anyone sequencing full songs with the MODX?

How are you doing it?

Can anyone explain the relationship between the pattern sequencer and the performance sequencer.

Are they basically two different modes?

I'd be interested to see this too - I think the MODX has the best tone of any modern digital synth ; better even than the Montage, despite being cheaper - so I'd be very interested to see how it can be used as a fully stand-alone instrument.

I've done a couple of sketches on it. Nothing I'd share lmao.

It's fun at times, but it's a bit cumbersome to really work on the sequencer. If I spent much more time with it, I'd be better at creating solely on the MODX, but I also have Cubasr and Maschine Studio, and, well... it's not even close.

Granted, that's obvious. I don't expect MODX to compete with those sequencers. It's just that it's exponentially faster for me to do my primary work with those tools, in great part due to significantly longer experience with them.

The scene structure works fairly well once you get used to it. I'm guessing the next update will give us something more robust.

The "get/put phrase" setup is awfully clunky, for example, IMO. Not a particularly well implemented cut and paste feature.

But with a few reps it gets easier, and MODX connect is an excellent feature. All in all I'd say it's absolutely useable for full tracks, but it's not one that allows you to "fly" quickly.

Has anyone else noticed that when you’re in recording mode in the sequencer and you’re sequencing an external device, you cannot go into edit to change the patch while the sequencer is playing?

I have to stop the sequencer. Press the little edit tab on the patch name to bring up the edit option on the left in order to get to the zone area.
