Jump to pattern FX - creating Song Mode/ Pattern Mode loop regions

Loop regions are very handy for live performance,

What is the problem?

The tracker doesn’t have a way to loop multiple patterns in song mode. Very handy feature with live performance. Could pair well with bouncing between song and performance screens.

What do you want to achieve?

Having a Jump command to bounce between song patterns in song mode. For example you have a command that jumps to pattern 3 on the 5th pattern and this will continually loop between 3 and 5 untill you select pattern 6 to continue the song.

Are there any workarounds?

Keep loop regions within 128 steps and loop play in song mode

Any links to related discussions?

Any references to other products?

Famitracker - Bxx: Jump to pattern xx
LSDj/ Dirtywave M8 - leaving space in the song mode will goto the top of the chain

Maybe later add a jump to step FX, mixed with the random value FX for some generative goodness.

Hey @Aisjam , is this essentially the same as the following wish?

the last line “jump to step FX” sounds more like that wish. This would be able to jump to any pattern region in song mode. Looking to get those LSDj Loop regions when you leave a gap in the song screen

Ah, the word “multiple” skipped my brain apparently! You are right :heart:

@here Thanks for your wish. It’s now ready for voting :slight_smile:
