Iím trying to use the pads to re-trigger their 2 note chords using KARMA. I selected Chords for the pattern, set the duration to a length that worked for me (59) and most of the other sliders to 0 (except Velocity Accents=127) to try to avoid notes other than the ones in the chord, however it seems to occasionally trigger other notes outside of the chord and I canít figure out why. Is there a better pattern to use or any suggestions what I am missing? I actually only need it to repeat once and I canít figure that out either, though thatís not too important, the pads are only held for a short time.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks!

"I selected Chords for the pattern" - what does this mean as far as KARMA goes?

What GE are you using and what is the name/number?

So, if I understand correctly, you want to put a 2 note chord on the pad, and then press the pad and have it repeat the two note chord over and over at some rhythmic interval?

Thank you for your reply. The GE is 0633 16 Chord Beat1 ( under chord rhythm)
You are correct in what I am trying to accomplish, except that if I can limit it to just re-triggering once, that would be ideal, but I can work with it if itís over and over.
In case your interested, the song Iím trying Iím trying to set it up for is Donald Fagen: New Frontier. https://youtu.be/Y8zrKnkd6ss
Thereís a a synth part that that does that repeating part. Iíve got both hands busy, so Iím trying to set up on the NanoPad to have a non-keyboard player do that part (and doing the 16ths at 125 bpm gets tiring quickly!)

Actually, I tried this with the same GE 0633 16 Chord Beat 1 and it worked fine - I didn't get any other notes than the two I played.

- On the KARMA GE page, set the Slider 4 Velocity Accents to 127.

- Use Slider 2 Rhythm Pattern to change the rhythm if necessary. By default, it should be 16ths, but a value of 61 (KARMA Value 32) would be 8th notes.

Another approach is to use 2044 RT Melodic Repeat, which repeats (echoes) the notes you play. With Repeat Transpose set to KARMA Value 0, you get a repetition of the exact notes you play.

- Set Slider 5 Repeat Repetitions to 4 (KARMA Value of 1) for one repeat. Set Sliders 6 and 7 to 127, and Slider 8 Transpose to 64.

- Now, you play your two note chord and it repeats one time.

- Make sure to turn off "Quantize Trig" on the KARMA Trigger Page for either of these methods. And turn off "Thru In Zone" on the GE Setup Page.

Thank you, always great to get an expert opinion! I will tweak my settings and try the other suggestion and see what works best. KARMA is a very powerful tool and Iím just getting started delving into it. Love the Kronos and this forum is great as well. Thanks again.
