Note clip device

I wish there was a Note FX device that plays back a note clip that’s stored inside it.

One would craft the note clip in a regular manner, and then drag-and-drop it into the device. The device would respond to any input note with simply playing back the note clip while the gate is open.

The use case I have in mind is that I could fill a Drum Machine with such note clip devices, a kind of a melody or rhythm bank triggerable with a single key. I currently do a primitive version of this with Arpeggiator devices loaded into the drum machine slots, but they’re obviously very limited compared to full clips with operators and all, and polyphony is a PITA.

I know it’s not nearly as simple as it sounds and a proper specification would take pages, but I think you get the idea. What do you think?


Hi @paipa, welcome to Bitwish.

Isn’t the Clip Launcher an option here? Do you need to stick to the arranger?

Feel free to submit a request on #drafts if you want that other users vote on it.

No, the idea is that I could load up to 128 note clips into a drum machine and I could trigger any one of them with a press of a key (“key” as in MIDI note).

Sure, you can launch clips with the Clip Launcher, but my suggestion (a clip player note fx) would allow something similar on steroids.
