I have a few questions about Cthulhu. Unfortunately, Logic Pro 10.4.4 does not list Cthulhu as a MIDI plugin. So I cannot just test it. I intended opening the manual. It seems that requires starting the plugin first. I don't see the manual as separate download.
So I am asking here:
Is it possible to set a number of steps after which the currently played step is reset to step ?
I don't see that on the panel.
Example: You set a 3 step arpeggio and every 2 bars, you want the arpeggio jump to step 1, wherever it is in its sequence.
Does this work somehow with the current version of Cthulhu.
When using chord mode, can Cthulhu use exclusively the chords of a currently loaded set of chords or can I play any chords on my MIDI keyboard and Cthulhu will trigger those?
Is it possible to record MIDI inside Cthulhu and then drag and drop the recording as a MIDI file into a DAW?
Logic has no built-in function to record the MIDI output of MIDI plugins and it's been said that is also the case in FL Studio (not sure of that is correct).
I suppose, this is not implemented: Free step length.
Additionally to the common musical timings, I'd like to be able to set any timing division. Instead of having a bar divided into 16 steps, I might want to try 3, 5, 7, 9, 13, 15 … steps of equal length for each bar.
There are Max for Live sequencer for Eucledean rhythms. Those however automatically set note values, too, I think. I don't have Ableton Live. But from what I have seen in videos, you can't set your own notes.
So that is something that I would love to see as an option.
Of these 4 things, the ones that aren't possible yet, could potentially be implemented relatively easily if Steve thinks they would be a good addition.
There is one other thing that I want to mention which goes beyond the current concept. Wether it makes sense for Steve, is up to him, of course. But I want to put it out there.
I'd love to have something like Cubase Chord Assistant's/Chord Pads' circle of fifth chord selection tool as a MIDI plugin (as seen here in Cubase https://youtu.be/tCAzECMjQOg?t=45 ).
