I am imagining a step sequencer that only moves forward one step when you depress a footswitch (or whatever other controller.)
My use case is to preprogram a bass line (and some simple drums) to act as a backing track, except that I am in control of the tempo and can introduces pauses when I like.
hit the pedal => 1st step of the sequence plays
hit the pedal again => 2nd step of the sequence plays
I am close to finishing my Bachelors in CS (woohoo!) and at this point I have a little bit of exposure to C++, as well as Java and Python.
But I don’t know anything about midi/plugins except as a user. My impression is that my idea could be problematic because on Mod (like in most cases) the loop is either playing or not playing, and doing so according to a set tempo.
Is my idea possible on the mod? Does anyone have any advice on getting started?
