Sorry if this has been asked before - is there a way to chain Euclids together such that the patterns are continuous/concatenated, or is this device strictly limited to 32 pulses?

For context, i often create very high speed drum patterns for a sort of reverse-granular effect, but if i want a higher pitch with the same level of control im still stuck with 32 pulses and cant "expand" the pattern to accommodate a higher rate/bpm.

Try Robotic Bean's free Select CV Switch. https://www.reasonstudios.com/shop/rack ... cv-switch/

You could chain 8 of these together, by going thru this device. Throw on an LFO to control the switch buttons (you could program this in a Combi pretty easily). You could put the LFO on a random waveform to make things interesting. Or if you don't want to go the LFO route, you could create an automation lane of the different CV Switch buttons. And you could chain 2 or 3 (or 100) of these together, if you need more than 8 patterns.

There is also this free device from pongasoft, but it's only a 2-way switch. Which is useful if you want to switch between 2 Select CV Switch devices. https://www.reasonstudios.com/shop/rack ... cv-switch/

The possibilities are virtually endless. So, to answer your question, no, you aren't just limited to 32 pulses. :)

I've attached a Combi patch. This is only for 16 Euclids, but you could build one with endless Euclids if you wired enough switches together.
