When running my cycle I seem to get random delay open the 1st step of the cycle in certain tracks. Is this the Zaquencer or is this qa midi problem? I have a program change in the initial step and that will make the synth select the program each cycle and this causes the delay perhaps… What would be a better way to have my preset select the right programs so I can avoid this problem?
Hi! I am not aware of a behavior like this originating from the Zaquencer.
I recommend testing several things to investigate the issue.
- check out a different midi receiver
- omit the program change message to the cycle
- look at the Zaquencer’s midi output with a monitoring software like Midi-OX.
If the cycle really needs some time to react to the program change, maybe it’s an option to use a negative note delay on the first step, or send the command on the last step of the previous loop.
