    Hi Citric Acid, the polyphony of a drum track is (all) 16 notes at the same time.
    There is no limit to the simultaneous notes that the drumtrack produces (up to 16).

    I´ve just tried this out with the Acidlab Miami and can trigger all of it´s 12 sounds at once.

    What drum machine/expander are you using? Have you tried looking at it with a midi monitor, to verify all notes are being generated from the Zaquencer?

    hi Christian,

    thanks for your replay.

    I think i must do something wrong.
    I used a cheap MFB Kult Drummer. I can try a other one, i have a lot of test victims.

    I think i have to try it again. sorry is a new way of drum sequencing. I think i have not understand your concept …. have to read the manual again ….

    Ok, please keep me posted on this.

    If you haven´t seen it before, maybe this can help you as well with the drums:

    Hello Christian,

    Since yesterday I have been having EXACTLY the same problem as Citric had.
    It had been working great for months before this happened.
    I have tried a reset: not working.
    Could Citric be contacted and tell me what he’s done to make it work again ?
    Thanks in advance, Lex

    Hi Lex,
    can you please provide me with more info on this?

    - What drum machine/expander are you using?
    - Have you tried looking at it with a midi monitor, to verify all notes are being generated from the Zaquencer?

    Citric, I´m also interested to hear if you´re still experiencing the problem.

    Cheers!
