I'm spending more time with this this weekend.

General musing about why I would use discreet sequencing for this type of an application, a virtual thinking living Jazzband. Really feels like there's a interweaved logic between the parts when every line is broken out and individualised

I'm discovering new tricks that I wouldn't have thought of: a choke function in th drum set. When the snare drum makes a roll, I use the gate out from it's gate sequencers to mute all the other samples by sending it to a permed with destination mute note generators. I suppose this could be done using a Numerology drum sequencer but it would take more modules..

I just have a sense that it's easy to make the whole seem more plastic and malleable when each voices is separated out from the others and is build up of easily accessible forms such as having a 5 note pattern in the interval sequencer and a 12 note pattern in the gate sequence which results in phrases where the melodic cure shifts through a static rhythmic pattern.

Several other advantages are to be had with discreet sequencing but also it's time consuming to setup, easy to get lost in the setup, so if some has a casual look at this setup it might seem like an impractical way to work. But I'm not going for fast and easy here, I'm going for plastic, malleable, lively.. I experience that interweaving enough lines of logic of intentions, tastes, reactions to difficult or wrong notes, adjustments, results into something that seems to run on with a mind of it's own, at the same time still being coherent and usable. It's not a random generation machine because every building block is setup up and considered, and each building blocks parametres is easily accessed and tweaked by the user.
