When I change pattern length, then switch to a new pattern and switch back, the updated pattern length isn’t saved

Bug Description

I have pattern 1 that is 16 steps and I extend the length of the pattern to 64 steps by copying and pasting 16-step sections while holding the shift key on a track. Then I go to pattern mode and switch to pattern 2, then back to pattern 1. The pattern length is 16 steps again like it was before I made the changes. The new pattern length should save automatically.

Reproduction Steps

  1. Create pattern 1 and pattern 2
  2. Extend pattern 1 by pressing shift, and holding the 16 button to copy, then pasting to 32, 48, and 64
  3. Go to pattern view and switch to pattern 2, then back to pattern 1
  4. Pattern 1 is 16 steps long again instead of 64

NOTE: If you extend pattern 1 length by using “Track Length” to extend and just putting in new notes manually, this bug does not happen. The length saves properly.


bug is reproducible always

I have a similar issue. I have a 64 step track and copy the first 16 steps 4x. I hit save and play and everything is fine; there are 64 steps. Then I go to pattern mode to copy that track several times to new slots. As soon as I go to the new copied pattern, it reverts back to 16 steps instead of 64 steps. All of the copied patterns AND the original are back at 16 steps. If I try to repeat this and copy the steps again, the same thing happens as soon as I try to copy to new slots in pattern mode. A hard save using the file menu does not help.

Seems like it only happens when I go directly from copying the 16 steps to copying the pattern but more testing is needed to prove that. I was not able to reproduce the issue if I selected some different samples and placed them in the grid.

I am using the Play + with 1.0.1 firmware.

I’m closing this topic. Let’s move the discussion to the initial report: Quick copying Step Pages (16,32,48,64) doesn't get saved to current pattern after switching to another one
