I watched an online tutorial that explains how to do shifting polyrhythms in Geist2.
I tried to recreate this in the pattern editor but to my surprise found out that no matter what values you set for Steps and Resolution, it will sync to global the time signature setting.
As an example:
I programmed a simple 16 Step/1 over 8 percussion pattern in a 140 BPM song.
Then I changed the steps to 12, but all it does is just loop the first 4 steps twice.
