Roland JUPITER-Xm Demo - “Save Your Tears” by The Weeknd using Step Edit as Sequencer

video by Robert Saint John

"My iMac is in for repairs and I can’t yet do this as a full tutorial, so it’s more of a quick demo. This rough cover of The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears” is all JUPITER-Xm, contained in a single Scene, using pre-sequenced Step Edit patterns and live performance.

Part 1: live Juno strings lead
Part 2: sequenced bass
Part 3: sequenced pad
Part 4: sequenced pluck

Tricks in use:

Starting with all Parts selected, the Step Edit Grid Length is set to 16. Parts 3 & 4 start muted. I start the patterns, then I quickly unmute with SHIFT+8/9 after a measure, and change Grid Length back to full 64 steps with Knob 2, to create an intro.

Part 1 is not sequenced and is the only Part with KeySw on for live performance.

The synchronized Step Edit patterns are set to Step Mode: KeyShift so that I can briefly transpose it all and back with a tap of a key. This is a great and simple way to introduce variation into an otherwise static 64-step pattern."
