The number of steps in a Step Sequencer pattern determines the length of the pattern, which is shown in the Pattern Length pop-up menu. The pattern repeats seamlessly depending on the length of the Pattern region in the Tracks area or in the Pattern cell in the Live Loops grid. If the Pattern region or cell is shorter than your pattern's length in Step Sequencer, Logic Pro might not play all the steps in your Step Sequencer pattern. If you want to hear the whole pattern in your project, make the Pattern region longer.
To change the length of a pattern, click the Pattern Length pop-up menu, then choose a new length. If you choose more than 16 steps, new pages might appear at the top of the Step Sequencer window showing the additional steps. Click a page to see and edit those steps in the Step Sequencer grid.
One of my suggestions would have been to extend the Pattern Chords to 12. Even if Scaler was not designed for live performance, it can be a super useful tool if we could extend the number of chords in a pattern.
In the above image, the width of the rows is defined by the length of the pattern and each square in each row represents a defined note value, in this case, a quarter note. In most modern electronic music, the time signature is 4/4. That is, each measure consists of four quarter-note beats. The number on top in a time signature is the number of beats per measure and the number on the bottom is the note value of each beat.
Studio One also offers two different modes of Pattern sequencing: Rhythmic and Melodic modes. In Rhythmic mode, each sample is given its own lane that in turn can have its own pattern length (Steps) and Resolution (note value) setting. In this way, your kick drum pattern can be defined as 16 1/4-note counts long, while your high hats can be defined as 12 1/8-note counts long in the same pattern. This mode automatically engages when a pattern is inserted on an Impact XT track.
2. Set the step length to define the duration of the pattern. Selecting 32 steps will create a two-bar loop, which will repeat for a duration defined by the length of the Pattern Region, which is currently four bars.
In this video, Haley shows you how to lengthen and shorten pattern pieces. This fundamental fitting technique can help you achieve a better fit and can be used anywhere on a pattern that doesn't interrupt any major design features, like darts. Recommended Materials: Pattern Clear ruler Pencil Scissors Tape Pattern Paper
Many commercial patterns are going to include lengthen and shortened lines on the pattern pieces themselves. Lengthen and shorten lines are placed by the pattern maker in what they think is the most optimal spot for you to lengthen and shorten without distorting the silhouette in any way. But if your pattern doesn't include lengthen and shorten lines, don't worry! You can add your own. All you need to do is take a ruler and a pencil and draw a line perpendicular to the grainline. Just make sure that this line doesn't intersect with anything like darts or vital markings. Let's start with shortening a pattern. To shorten, you're just going to need a clear ruler and a pencil. You're going to draw a line above, and parallel to, your lengthen and shorten line. The distance between these two lines should be the amount you want to shorten your pattern by. Next, you're going to crease your lengthen and shorten line and then take that creased line and bring it up to your new line, taping everything in place. Once you're done with that, you can take your ruler and your pencil and just straighten out your side seam, so you create a nice line. Make sure that you're making all of these same adjustments to your back pattern piece or any other corresponding pattern pieces.
Let's move on to lengthening our patterns. When you're lengthening your patterns, the first thing you're going to want to do is take your scissors and cut along your lengthen and shorten line. Then on a separate piece of pattern paper, you're gonna take your pencil and your clear ruler and draw a set of parallel lines. The distance between these two lines should be the amount you want to lengthen your pattern by. Once you've drawn these parallel lines, you're going to draw a third line perpendicular to those. This is basically gonna act as an extension of your grainline and help you line everything up perfectly straight. Once you've finished drawing your guidelines, you're going to take your cut pattern pieces and you're going to line it up with your guidelines and your grainline, taping everything into place. Once everything is taped into place, youcan use a ruler and a pencil to straighten out the side seam and the center front, Make sure that you're repeating all of these same steps to the back or any other corresponding pattern pieces. And that's it how to lengthen and shorten!
Is there anything that's missing from the AU vs standalone? Thinking input utilities like pads, keyboard.Noticed that when you extended the pattern length it was applied for all tracks, can that behavior be changed? /poly rhythmI'm not sure if I got it right, is it possible to combine conditions? Like f.e. p-locks tied to scenes
Specifies the lengths of the alternating dashes and gaps that form the dash pattern. The lengths are later scaled by the line width. To convert a dash length to pixels, multiply the length by the current line width. Note that GeoJSON sources with lineMetrics: true specified won't render dashed lines to the expected scale. Also note that zoom-dependent expressions will be evaluated only at integer zoom levels.
The "Oct" switch will transpose the current note one or two octaves up or down (left click: go up; right click: go down). You can set the velocity level per step by changing the value of the volume/velocity box. The velocity level is relative to the Velocity value in the Pattern Trigger area. In Full Chords mode, you can also change the strum direction and strum speed of the triggered chord. If you change the pattern length you can create quite complex arpeggios and rhythmic melodies.
The following search options are available:Search field: Enter some text that has to be included in the filename. Check the "Case sensitive" box if you want to match only files with the exact same upper and lower cases.Volume changes: Should the pattern contain volume variations?Made for triplets: Interesting to find patterns that were specifically created for triplets.Octave jumps: Find patterns that contain octave variations (both up and down).Stop symbols: Should the pattern contain stop symbols?Constant notes: Find patterns that only use one note for everything (for example only zeros).Direction: Useful for finding melodies that go into a certain direction.Multiples of 16th: Find patterns with 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, or 64 steps.Min and max number of steps: Specify the pattern length.
Settings: "Show input box instead of editor in main view": This will replace the Pattern Trigger editor with a big input box. The input box is especially interesting for recording live. "Show chromatic keyboard in chords view": This will replace the scale keyboard in chords view with a normal keyboard. "Link tempo of all song parts with same tempo": Activate this to change the tempo of all song parts with the same tempo at once (default: activated). "Link swing of all song parts with same swing": Activate this to change the swing of all song parts with the same swing at once (default: activated). "Follow current song part in song mode": If the song mode is active, Sundog will automatically follow the current song part during playback (default: activated). "Follow pattern position": Long patterns over 16 steps (one pattern page) will automatically adjust the page to the current position during playback. "Duplicate original pattern when pattern length changes to multiple": This will duplicate the original pattern when you change the pattern length to a multiple of the old length (e.g. when you change it from 4 to 8 lines - but not from 4 to 9 lines. Default: activated). "Always on top": Sundog will always stay on top of other program windows when this one is activated. "Reset UI size to default setting": If you configured Sundog to be way too large for your screen, then this menu item will help you to go back to the defaults. "Edit left chord mod" etc: Click this and you will get to a page where you can edit the chord modificator for the left side of the standard chord buttons (see the chapter on Chord Mods). "Chord mods active": The chord modificators will only work when this is checked.
BBT sync method: if Hydrogen uses JACK transport in the presence of an external JACK Timebase master (TBM), it will use the provided measure and tempo information instead of the local one of either the song's tempo or the Tempo Markers added to the Timeline. But due to fundamental design choices within Hydrogen, it can not set both measure and speed provided by JACK for arbitrary pattern combinations. You have two options here. Either drop all measure changes in the TBM and work with tempo changes only to support arbitrary patterns (using option constant measure) or to keep the length of each pattern consistent with the corresponding measure in the TBM and to use both tempo and measure provided by JACK (option matching bars).
Columns represent time periods within the song. While they're shown as the same width in the Song Editor, the length of time taken to play through a column is set by the length of the pattern or patterns which are active and playing during that time slot.
In the case of multiple patterns of different lengths in one column only the largest one(s) will be represented by a square. The shorter patterns are indicated by rectangles whose width indicate their length relative to the longest one. 2b1af7f3a8
