I just had a small problem with overwriting data and thought I would share the quick and easy fix....
I saved progress of a file and after working on it some time noticed I had accidentally deleted a pattern.
I opened a previous version (always do this in case of needing to revert when doing major changes) and noticed the deleted pattern.
I was unable to open to versions of renoise to copy over the info, however, once I selecting and copied the notes in pattern editor, I closed the old version
and opened the new one to find it still on the clipboard and so I was able to copy all parts of the pattern over. I was also able to do this with automation.
Thought I'd share in case anyone else had something similar happen. Saved me a lot of hassle
