Q.I hear that the MV-8000 Version 3 adds a powerful song creation tool called “Pattern Mode.” What can I do with it?

A.The MV-8000 Version 3’s new “Pattern Mode” allows you to create and edit patterns, and then chain them together to quickly create a song. Fig.1 shows a Pattern window in the MV-8000’s display.

A pattern can consist of 64 MIDI tracks and one audio track, and up to 500 patterns can be used in each project. (Fig.2)

Patterns can be assigned to the velocity pads for playing and recording. You can assign up to 128 patterns to the pads, and strike them to play or loop a pattern. This is especially useful for realtime pattern playback during a live performance. (Fig.3)
