I just had a look into the phrase editor which is really cool.

But when I set the Key Tracking to Offset, where am I supposed to set the offset between the keys? The default setting makes no sense: If I have a phrase of 32 lines and map it on 4 keys on the keyboard, I would expect that the first key starts the phrase at line 0, the second one at line 8, the third one at line 16 and finally the fourth key at line 24. That way the offset positions would be evenly shared between all keys of the phrase. But that's not the case: They start at line 0, 10, 20 and 31. Pretty useless for a default... isn't it?

Or when I just use two keys for the phrase then I would expect that the second one starts the phrase in the middle... but no, it's starting on the last line.

Maybe there's an option somewhere to set the offset manually but I can't find anything... and it's not in the docs. Posted Image

We'll have to look into the Offset behaviour and see if something isn't quite right.

When you trigger a phrase in the pattern editor, you can use the sample offset command Sxx to trigger the phrase from a specific line.

So in your example you could do:
C-4 S00
C-4 S08
C-4 S10
C-4 S18

Right, but I want to trigger the phrases and the offsets using MIDI notes live or from another host.
