Sometimes you just mess with the Perform mode and find that sound that you want to have in your next progression’s step/pattern, but you can’t have it right away. Instead, you need to twist the knobs trying to find that relevant setting, even though the performance pads are the shortcuts to the same settings already.
What do you want to achieve?
The ability to permanently apply all the currently selected perform FXs to a pattern. For example, with perform + save shortcut. After all, most of the performance FXs are like shortcuts/presets to the already available knobs tweaks.
Are there any workarounds?
Leaving the Perform mode and searching for all the tweaks manually.
Any links to related discussions?
The similar feature we all want that should be seriously discussed more in new threads:
This sounds like a very interesting concept. If i got it right it would be like “saving” the current perform mode settings into a pattern… would you want this feature to override the existing pattern knob settings or automatically create a new pattern with the current perfromance settings? Personally i would not like it to overwrite the current ones i had before entering in performance mode, but i’d rather prefer the play to create a new “copy” of everything applying the performance values on top… what do you think?
do you mean creating a copied pattern right next to the current one?
If I get it right, it will help a lot in a composing workflow, because you could always jump in the patterns view and then switch back and forth between a newly created and the unaffected one. No preparation work, no manual backups! And if so, I had it in mind too. All in all, I guess it could be an interesting feature maybe even worth a separate wish: the ability to save all the unsaved/modified state to the next pattern without overwriting. But it may easily be 2-in-1 here.
I always prefer the global options for all the features, because who knows how folks would love to use these tricks in their workflow.
I guess, it could even save the modified sequences in the variations, too. Personally, I think variations are way too powerful and underestimated. I’d prefer the option “create a new variation + make a new pattern”. Being in the new pattern you could make smooth progressions by changing variations one by one.
I made other wishes that could allow user to save changes in new pattern/variation slots on the fly. It’s a strict wish system here, so you cannot wish two things at the same time, even if they’re strongly related. You may want to “heart” them or add something, so they won’t seem unneeded.
Do you think Generate new patterns in Performance mode covers the same wish that you have for the Play, just for the Tracker? If so, we could wait to see how that review goes and then, if successful, copy the same text for a Play version of the same wish.
Unfortunately, I don’t have Tracker to decide. These are separate wishes for different devices to just copypaste something, I guess. Also, why is this text any worse? The wish seems to be pretty straight-forward and had some support here (almost the same thing, but without declined idea of automations). That one was published more than 2 weeks ago.
It’s up to you. In case it’s the same concept, maybe that thread should be named “Generate new patterns in Performance mode for Tracker and Play”?
Even though having this wish implemented would definitely improve some workflow aspects, it makes me think once in a while how cool it would be to have an actual automation lane for the perform mode. Sure, it was declined and closed:
but, damn, it would add insane amount of value to the device. It’s ironic that PO-33 or actually any Pocket Operator have the ability to automate fx lanes and cost like 10x less. Is it really-really impossible to make the device «remember» what performance buttons should be automatically «pressed» at given time?
