Patterns longer than 1 Bar?

Postby JadamsBackyard » Wed Feb 26, 2014 7:35 am

Is there a way to create patterns longer than 1 bar? I am trying to create a 2 bar pattern and can't find anything on pattern length.

Thnks

You can have up to 32 beats in a pattern, where each beat can be subdivided into up to 16 subbeats. Suppose we would set the time signature of a pattern to 16/4 and the subdivision to 4, we could interpret the pattern as 4 4/4 measures with 1/16 resolution. Or for a 2-bar type of pattern: set the time signature to 8/4. Does this answer your question?

As an addition to my earlier answer: although it is perfectly possible to work along the above line of thinking, I personally prefer looking at a pattern as a single bar/measure and then combine multiple bars in a song. So, typically I would build a 4-bar part in a song by 4 separate patterns..
