One thing you can do is make it so that any new sequence is by default attached to patterns at the same index. So sequence 1 is using pattern 1 of every track, sequence 2 is using pattern 2 etc.. This is at settings -> misc -> auto pattern.Daisuk wrote:Hey, yeah, I've tried that, and gotten it to work well, but where it gets confusing and a bit slow to me is when you have several tracks with several patterns each and want to create what squarp call sequences with them. If there was more of an overview way of switching patterns of multiple tracks at once instead of having to enter every track and then select pattern, it'd work. I just lose a bit of overview of which patterns I have selected where. Sequence mode really could be better at displaying some sort of overview, in my opinion. But then again, just using tracks is nice, as you get to mix midi fx around as you wish, which is ace.autopoiesis wrote:@Daisuk, have you tried switching patterns with the TRACK+STEP+PAD# shortcut? it makes the pattern workflow comparably fluid, to me
@visible cow, only forward playback of patterns. squarp has been aware since the beginning that a lot of sequencer freaks would like this but I guess they didn't find an event model that could work for this along with all the midi fx and polyrhythmic/metric track timings.
playback of long unquantized sequences is definitely something it's really good at
This makes it a bit more like an Elektron style device, but you can still manually mess around with the pattern numbers afterwards so they're not strictly tied.
