Recording function

QuantiZer has a recording function called Sketchpad. When you press the Record button and the LED lights red, recording is started. By manually pressing the keyboard button during recording, the scale will be recorded for each step according to the input clock. When recording is completed, press the Record button again and make the LED blink to play the recorded sequence. If you want to play the sequence from the beginning, use the Reset button or the Reset signal.

By connecting with SyncBus, it is also possible to record a sequence by associating it with a loop on Circadian Rhythms (CR). FirstmanualConnect CR and QuantiZer with SyncBus cable as shown in. Since synchronization is done with SyncBus, press the "KEYBOARD" button to select Input Range, and press the Eb keyboard button to set synchronization to SyncBus. Press the BOSS button twice on CR to make CR the master of QuantiZer. Set the loop with CR. Press the Record button to start recording and end it automatically. When the loop on the CR is played, the recorded sequence is also played. Since the sequence is recorded in association with the preset in the CR loop, when you play a certain preset on the CR, only the sequence corresponding to that preset in the loop can be played.
