Probability trigger (like elektron sequencer)

    Hi Dev team, i would like to have a probability trigger like seen on the elektron sequencer. It could work the same. In step sequencer mode, hold the pad which is triggerd, and dial with a knob the chance in when the pad should be triggerd. (% chance, 1 bar repeat, repeat the trigger every 2nd bar etc.)

    Its a really nice idea, and i want to see it on machine too.

    Further idea:
    Sequencer track that triggers sequencer track, which would mean, that you could cycle shorter tracks, and have them repeat at certain intervals which are still at a predictable time intervall.

    A probability engine on Maschine would be great. I use Geist 2 purely for it's probability feature as it makes the programmed beat more interesting to perform with in a live situation. A one bar loop becomes a multitude of variations.

    With Maschines 2 screens you could take this further in a live sense by having one screen showing the playing beat, and the second screen showing the upcoming beat from the probability values.
    Like knowing your live drummer is about to play an unscripted fill or variation that you can then play along with.
    Does that makes sense? Probably? ;)

    Bump. :)

    I'd also like to have a probability trigger. I use a modular one right now. Its a really awkward setup ..

    Maschine -> Midi to trigger -> probability trigger -> Trigger to Midi -> Maschine

    Would be much easier to just set the probability chance for the pad :cool:

    Probability trigs are a must! It is so awesome I need the digitakt, really powerful to make variations. I think the randomizer in maschine as it is now, relies to much on, well randomness. It's a fine feature, but not one I use much.

    Probability trigs, and preferably in such a way so you in step sequencer and in the kit can push one or more pads to change the probability for more at the same time.

    Probability trigs are essential for a "living" ever-evolving beat, and would be a MAJOR addition to the musical possibilities of Maschine!!

    Yes Trig Conditions on Elektron sequencer is a must have. It could enable polyrhythms without changing the pattern structure.
    Number 1 feature request as far as I'm concerned.
    Please NI !!!

    I fully support this feature request. Can't believe it's 2018 and Maschine doesn't have it. In fact, I joined the forum to find a way to post this request!
