We need a list of the 32 Rhythm Presets

Novation - Please provide a guide/table/listing of the 32 rhythm presets

Without this, it's a guessing game each time I go into it

 

Should be clear where 1/8th, 1/16ths, 1/32th etc are....manual mentioning complexity increasing and semiquavers as you increase the value

is a weak, weak explanation.

 

Also consider a mode where you can switch from Patterns to Time Sync'd modes (like 1/32 triplets up to 1 bar or something)

 

A keyboard this badass deserves it

yeah agree

 

I was searching the manual in & out thinking there might be something, then my on-line search for it led me here... seems like a guessing game at this point, so it would be nice to have some sort of rhythm chart

Agree completely. Even the little Kaossilator came with a chart showing the beats of the Arp settings.

Don't know if i get this right...

One could play a single-note arp 'loop' and record the midi output in a DAW for each rhythm preset. Thus, one could collect all rhythms and visualize them somehow.

Or doesn't the BSII send the notes played by the arp to MIDI out?

Honestly, however, i wouldn't want to do the work....

^ had the same thought (with MIDI or even audio, set to same tempo in DAW etc) but yeah seems like they would just give the info up rather than one of us do the reverse engineering :)

good job cypher, cheers! you are putting in the time for everyone else for sure! im just gonna add my 2 cents... i noticed that the location of where the 16th notes lands on the rythm selector changes depending on what tempo you have set. it cang be anywhere from like 11 to 16 on the rythem selector, from my experiene. hope that helps just a little

Glad i'm not the only one looking for this...anyone find any settings for super fast 32nds or 64ths? Sort of trying to get that arp-so-fast-its=a-chord Commodore 64 sound...

Logic has notation built in if you have that?

If not this looks good- http://musescore.org/en/handbook/drum-notation

Imports midi etc.

I just noticed a mistake in Patch 4. It should be all eighth-notes.

I would appreciate some feedback.

You are welcome. I would do everything for my baby, the Bass StationII.

It's the 32 Rhythm Presets (the last two are missing for some reason, Nr. 32 is just 16th notes). I hope you can read written music. Otherwise it's not very helpful indeed.

I tried to fulfill this request.

 

If you have more questions im happy to answer.

Plenty of users here will benefit, again - thanks
