Mother 32 Sequencing problem - Help!!

Postby Durr GaGa » Wed Sep 18, 2019 9:03 pm

Hi Folks,

I wonder if any of you can offer any advice regarding a strange issue with my Mother 32?

If I initialize pattern 1, 2 or 4, enter a simple sequence (say 4 notes) and save it, it plays correctly. However, if I turn the synth OFF and then ON again, the notes are there correctly but the tempo is wrong in that the first two notes play correctly then there is a gap in the tempo then the last two notes play correctly and the sequence restarts and the incorrect pattern sequence is repeated. Patterns 3, 5, 6, 7 and 8 behave correctly!

I have two Mother 32s and only one of them displays this 'fault'.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received,

Regards,

Steve

I'd say you've answered your own question. If only one of them does it, then it's faulty.

Hi Wonks, I tend to agree but as a relative newbie, it *could* just be a setting I have neglected or something like that!

^^^

Sounds worth a look.

Why is my Mother-32 sequencer skipping steps?

Check your swing settings. To reset hold SHIFT and move the tempo knob to the center (unity) position.

I love you guys :bouncy: That's what it was - thank you so much, it is such a relief to know that it was something dumb that I have done and not a fault in my lovely gear. I can see that FAQ on the Moog Music website now but to be honest, I wouldn't have found it without you guys as I didn't think of the issue as 'skipping a step', rather, 'delaying a step' but either way, the problem is now resolved.

I'm very grateful to you both :thumbup:
