Variation chaining

Possibility of chaining pattern variations.

What is the problem?

It’s possible to chain patterns but not variations.

What do you want to achieve?

Play, lets say, 4 variations of a pattern one after another simply by pressing the variations pads - chaining them.

Are there any workarounds?

Making one pattern from each variation and playing them in pattern mode.

Any links to related discussions?

Any references to other products?

Elektron products have such option for patterns.

Hi @dsp, welcome to Backstage!

Is your wish covered by this one already approved and welcoming votes? Record chained variations for longer MIDI sequences and comping.

yeah, it also was discussed here in the comments:

the thread you linked had the same wish in its core, but in order to make it simpler that wish was edited according to one specific use case: not only chaining, but the ability to record long sequences using rec feature. it’s up to the team whether it’s a duplicate or not.

I can only add that it would be great not only to chain them in a simple manner, but to create sophisticated sequences out of them, like described in this patterns related wish:

something like: you press the first variation three times, then the second one. that would mean 3x the first one, 1x the second one always in this order. if user manually activates the second already chained variation with no hotkeys, Play could continue to play that chain when that variation’s sequence ends.

user could have many variations: some of them chained, some not. there could be many chains.

last, but not least:

votes for these wishes are welcomed.
