Quantum Chord Mode

Hi,

I'm a bit lost in Quantum. I guess.

On a specific step, I want a chord. I press the button chord, choose my type of chord and it doesn't sound like a chord but more like three notes played one after the other (even if the strum option is off).

Please help me :)

    I don’t know if it is because of a bug, but if I turn on strum, and select either up* or down* and select 1/64T for the time value, it sounds like a regular chord.

    Be sure to cycle through the strum directions until you get to the up or down with the *.

  • Hard to say - maybe post screenshots?
    With strum off, the chord should be simultaneous.
    Do you have ratchets enabled on that step?
    MIDI FX enabled?

    Actually, I just tested this out. There's definitely something amiss.

    I have used chords in the past, but the chords I used were just 2 note chords.

    If your chord has 2 notes they play simultaneously, but when you add a third or more notes they play staggered.

    It's still strumming the notes. 1/64T is very fast at high tempos, but if you slow the tempo down you'll hear the individual notes

  • "It's still strumming the notes. 1/64T is very fast at high tempos, but if you slow the tempo down you'll hear the individual notes"

    Exactly !

  • Yes its a bug with strum : Off setting - I have a fix for it so will submit today.
    You can get around it by picking Up & 0 ms.

    Of course, but for the tempo range I usually work in it seems fine. Not high tempos either, more normal range.
    But if you like slow tempos then wait for the update, I guess.

    While you are tinkering with the Chord interface, maybe have a look at the Gate Length slider. If you drag it past 100%, the slider goes offscreen.

    Will add it to my list for next update - the strum one is already available
