Recently I was trying to finish a song, working on getting vocal levels right.  


I needed to jump between two different sections of the song to compare how the vocals sounded in each.


Scrolling and clicking wasn't working well for me.   So I wrote a Ruby script to to use OSC to manage jumping to a given pattern.


It's small.  Source is here: https://gitlab.com/snippets/30828


Runs from the command line.  Requires Ruby to be installed.  You need to edit the file to change the Renoise OSC info.




    rns-jumper.rb 12    # Jump to pattern 12
    rns-jumper.rb 2 1   # Jump to pattern 2 and turn on pattern looping
    rns-jumper.rb 8 0   # Jump to pattern 8 and turn off pattern looping

I use my own variant of the osc-ruby gem but you can use the original as well (since this code does not use any of my extensions)
