Tip – Triggering in time

We’ve just been asked if you can trigger events so that they will stay in time (something which Mike Sissons also talks about at the end of his customer story). When triggered, the Pulser block will send out an on and off signal at specified intervals so everything connected to it will be kept in time.

All you need to do is specify how long the Pulser should stay on and off for, and connect the output to the blocks you want to trigger. The picture below shows how I use it to trigger various drum sounds and a bass guitar using the MIDI Notes block, all in time.

The Pulser block is included with all the latest versions of Ensemble, but will also work with older versions. If you’ve got an older version and want to add the Pulser, head over to the blocks library to download it.
