What exactly is a motif?

Postby EZB » Fri Oct 24, 2014 4:46 pm

I want to know what a motif is exactly. I know what it is in music, but on the Spectralis it seems to be its own entity.
For example, if I want to play a DSYN I can make a sequencer line. But I can also play DSYN with a motif.
However, when I want to edit the motif I can't find any steps. It seems I can only select it from another song or another track.

Hi EBZ,

You cant smell it... you cant see it... you cant touch it... you cant eat it... :mrgreen:
Dont worry and no fear u are on right path.

I use motifs to record complex Sequenzes wich are written on Cubase. This can also be a complex Drummsequenz. With some experience this works fine. And NO You cant start the Spectralis in <Record mode> from external MidiTimeCode.

For beter understand Try "External Midi Sync With Realtime Motif Rec"... or take a Eye on the realy Nice Spectralis-Manuel 8)

best regards

So what you are saying is that the motif won't be visible to edit?

So how do you record sequences from Cubase?

Also check my quickstart guide, which discusses motifs on page 11.
