Hey all! Loving the Drum Sequencer so far, especially its polyrhymthic abilities. But I'm having a weird issue with actually recording it... When I don't press the main Play button in the DAW, but rather just the "Run" button in the Drum Sequencer, it seems to work the way I want it to... If i change patterns midway through, it will keep the main rhythm, switching to the next pattern on the next playthrough. However, when I play and record these pattern changes on the DAW, it seems to start new patterns the exact moment I press the pattern button, making it very difficult to time correctly. Any idea why its doing this?

Automate the patterns then draw them in like you would a doctor Rex. :)

So it's really not possible to click "record," mess around with the patterns, and have it record in the way I heard when I played it?

You have to create an automation line for the patterns and select it when you hit the record button.
