Logic Studio apps Ultrabeat Question


Hey there, Just a quick querey on UB:

When I create a looped pattern within UB, I have to change the gate so that my notes aren't choked,

When I play a pattern using that kit in the arrange window with my midi keyboard (Play in real time) the notes are choked off.

So is there a way to default the gate to be open, and where the heck do I change this parameter when editing my midi stuff in, say the piano roll?

Thanks in advance, dudes!

Each UB voice has two ways to make it gate. One is using the sustain in env 4, if that is off you can also turn on the GATE switch. If either of these is on, you can control the note length and it will control how long the sound plays. If you want a one-shot sound that plays out to the end automatically, you can turn both Sustain and Gate off and it will play as long as the envelope 4 plays, or the sample ends, or the filter cuts off. Really depends on the sound.
