If you initialize the patch, the routing is deleted and Sequencer 1 doesn’t know what it should sequence.
You have to assign a target to Sequencer 1, in this case the pitch. To do this, click on “Sequencer 1” to enter routing mode - the colors of the knobs should change. Click on “Pitch” and drag the value until it’s set to e.g. 12 semitones. Then click again on “Sequencer 1” to leave routing mode.
The SurgeXT Step sequencer, if I understand correctly, has a maximum of 16 steps.
I’m trying to figure out if it’s possible to set the velocity of each single step, with the possibility of setting it to zero in some steps, in order to create notes and rests rhythms.
Is it possible to do this?
I don’t know if I understood correctly, but there’s a small row at the top of the step sequencer which triggers the amp and filter envelope (both, none or just one of them). Maybe that’s what you’re after
