TIPS AND TRICKS

Jim Pavloff advises : “holding down the Step Edit button in the Drums section, you will be able to edit additional 16 steps (backbeats)? Backbeats are steps which shifted forward by a half step between the main 16 steps.”

Most controls in the app can be controlled via MIDI. Pure Acid has MIDI Learn capability to override the default mappings.

Pattern-changing via MIDI. Send a MIDI program change on the channel used by the bass synthesizer (send values from 0 to 11 to select patterns 1 through 12) or drum synth (send a value from 0 to 15 o select patterns 1 through 12 and fills 1 through 4) to change the pattern being played. The change happens when the current pattern completes which is just like the buttons.
