Stochas difference in tempo between different time signatures (step lengths).

I’ve noticed differences in tempo between layers & instances of Stochas. For example: in both (Stochas instances) the number of Total Steps is the same e.g. 48 steps; Steps Per Measure is set to 16 (3 bars of 4/4) in one instance and 12 (4 bars of 3/4) in the second. Both instances are starting on step 1 when the DAW is put into play mode. Even though both have the same total steps, 48, they do not stay in sync when they should i.e. tempo should not be affected by time signature (Steps Per Measure).

Hi Joel

Apologies for the delay in responding to this, I have been sick in hospital and Audio Vitamins is just myself, so have not been able to work.

I think you might be getting a little confused with what the steps per measure does. It takes a measure/bar (DAW’s time) and divides it by that so in your case you are creating one instance of 1/16 notes and another of 1/12 notes. I know it is a little confusing and we spent a lot of time trying to come up with a naming system for these 2 options that would cause the least confusion.

We are looking at having a time signature option which is more suited to what you want. Ideally, you are looking for a visual cue of a 3/4 in the grid but to still be able to have the notes play essentially with a 1/16 pattern am I correct?
