As much as I initially like the idea of having quantization on any module with a pitch/freq input, I think having it as a separate module does open up a lot more possibilities.
After considering it for a minute, if one is going to use multiple scales within the same patch, it provides clear and easy entry points to swap out tuning for multiple modules at the same time, and makes it easier to quickly build a mental map of what’s going on in a preset as opposed to having to inspect individual modules.
Allows for a future (or external) switch module to cycle between different scales to swap chord changes / arpeggios, etc…
I think it will make for a much cleaner workflow in complicated patches, and thus encourage more exploration and experimentation.
After considering it for two minutes, I can say that I’m sold on keeping it as a separate module.
However, I do still think that the step sequencer needs another way to quickly jump large ranges beyond the current acceleration.
I’m kinda beating a drum on this one, but I think the easiest solution would be to cause pushing of the knob while rotating jump in some sort of quanta that allows coverage of the whole range within a half turn. (ie. starting at 0, 1/4 Left would gets one from zero to full value, 1/4 turn right would get one from zero to full negative value.)
The above is similar to how Elektron gear handles similar circumstances, and has the advantage of being a 1 handed solution that quickly turns into muscle memory. (Having additional “pages” added to the interface which change the scaling of ranges would also accomplish this, but seems like something that would be a better as compliment the above method rather than the actual solution)
How does everyone else feel?
