The Pattern Generator allows you to create and customise complex Rhythmic Patterns for your Chord Progressions. You can use up to 16 chords in each workset, and the pattern use by each Chord Block can be fully customised.
1. Pattern Options
This is where you set the default options for the patterns you want the Pattern Generator to create. You can choose the number of chords used, default chord size, pattern length, rest lengths. You can also set the velocity and humanisation for you patterns at Chord Level.
2. Full Pattern Grid
This is where you set the layout for you Rhythmic Pattern, and provides a visual display of what your progression will look like in the Piano Roll. You can move and resize and add as many chords as you like, provided there is enough space on grid.
3. Pattern Tab
This is where you customise the pattern which is applied to each of the chords you use. You can move and resize and add as many Pattern Blocks as you like. Editing of the Pattern Block is similar to traditional midi editing found in most DAW Piano Rolls.
Pattern Options Overview:
This is where you set the global parameters for the rhythmic pattern you are generating in the Piano Roll. Any changes made will be represented in the Full Pattern Grid, which provides you with a visual representation of what your progression will look like in the Piano Roll.
This represents the number of chords currently being used in this progression. You can add as many chords as you like, provided there is enough space left on the Full Pattern Grid.
2. Chord Length
This represents the length that each of your chord will take up in the rhythmic pattern. This only represents a global default, as all chords can be resized within the Full Pattern Grid.
3. Pattern Length
This represents the length that each of the Pattern Blocks will take up within the Chord Block. Essentially, it represents how many times, and at which positions/lengths the chords will be played for.
4. Rest Length
This represents how much of a pause there will be in between each Pattern Block. In terms of sequencing, it represents how much of a pause there will be in between each play of the chord.
5. Velocity and Strum Options
This is where you set the velocity, humanisation, strum level and strum type for your chord progressions.
