Thanks for the reply!
I think variations and patterns wouldn’t cover random events, right?
Simple example : track where the actual sample is randomized for every step. This would sound different every time when I use the Play to perform, but it would be really hard to export (if I’m not missing something).
Another example : I have a sample that covers 8 bars and want to play that back. This works fine when I set the track speed to 1/2, but the export will only cover the first 4 bars, right (haven’t tried to export that one, just guessing)?
Thank you. Yes, you are right, I’m understanding your wish better now.
Do you mean full passes through the pattern? Can we call them pattern loops?
Bars… are hard. You can have tracks of different lengths running at different speeds, they can go through up to four pages. If the user (and the Play!) need to count bars, it can be difficult, and this is not even getting into different time signatures.
