Using Equinox As A Drum Machine - 10/06/03 12:17 PM

I have had an Equinox Pro 88 for about a year now, and still can't figure out the most effective way to use it as a drum machine easily for gigs. There are drum grooves that would be okay, but there doesn't seem to be a way to play sounds or performances while the groove is going (ie: drum groove going while using the full keyboard for a piano sound). Maybe I'm missing something obvious.... all hints appreciated... thanks!

I don't have an Equinox in front of me but I seem to recall that you can play the current performance over a groove while in SHUFFLE mode. Simply turn off every track except Drum 01 and then use the GET button to select a groove from the drum libraries.

Hope memory serves me correctly. Let me know if it works or not.

Thanks so much, Chris! Worked like a charm. I never would have figured that out... I'm mostly a piano player, not much of a tech type. Thanks again!
