Ability to pause and resume playback

Often while I’m editing, I want to pause, make some adjustments, and then continue playback. That makes it easier to work on a pattern – especially when making changes near the end of a long pattern.
Otherwise, I have to stop, edit, and then playback from the beginning.

What is the problem?

Editing the end of a long track is tedious because you have to start over from the beginning every time to hear changes.

What do you want to achieve?

It would be nice to be able to either:

  • Pause/Resume playback without restarting from the beginning of the pattern.
  • Be able to start from a specified trigger. (E.g. hold a pad and press Play to start from there).

Are there any workarounds?

I don’t think so.

Any links to related discussions?

Is it possible to play just part of a pattern while editing? - Play - Polyend Backstage

Any references to other products?

Novation Circuit has support for pause/resume
