If you don't use the 909 internally where would you get your tracks from?
Squid sequencing TR 909
Hi, I would like to sequence my 909 with the Squid. It looks like I have to use almost all tracks for this. Is it planned to implement a lot of more tracks so that sequencing drum sounds is more conftable? I would prefere not using the internal 909 sequencer caus I would like to play the sounds dynamically over midi.
Looking forward to hear good news.

One drum voice per Squid track. Track 1 = Kick, track 2 = Snare ,...
You don't have to use 12 tracks to sequence the 909. You can use patterns for this. Each pattern trigger can contain up to 8 notes. For instance, on trigger pad 1, I have a kick and a high hat layered. C2 for the kick and F#2 for the closed hat.
Ensure the note is activated on the trigger. When holding the pad, 8 small boxes appear, white boxes mean the note is active.
Another way to solve this is to program your drums within a DAW and drag and drop them.
Manually entering each note and velocity individually on each step every single time you want to create a drum pattern is not acceptable. There needs to be a "drum" mode that allows you to assign a note to a pad ahead of time so you can enter notes and velocities by just striking a pad and having all of the info contained within the single track. Modes should be Note/Drum or Mono/Poly/Drum, etc with the Drum mode allowing you to assign notes to pads and then save that set of instruments as a template so you don't have to recreate the same thing over and over again for every single pattern.
