# Automating Lpb/ Resolution

Hey Guys,

I know this is like a Tracker 101 ultra-n00b type question, but here goes…

How do I change the resolution from one pattern to the next?

For example: let’s say I have a drum groove that I wrote at LPB 8. This leaves me, as I understand it, up to 32nd notes worth of resolution.

Now, let’s say for the next pattern in the track, I want to have twice the resolution (64th notes), but keep the pattern the same, so that I can add some intricate new notes into the pattern.

From what I understand, I would automate teh LPB with the F1xx command, and expand my pattern so that things line up sound wise.

The thing is, I tried this, and it sounded craaazy. Stuff did not line up, it played WAYYYY too fast, and things like snares that normally fall on a beat or divisor of a beat were landing in funny places in the pattern. This happened when I did F116.

So, what the hell did I do wrong? How would I double my resolution but keep my pattern sounding the same?

16 in hex is 22 in decimals.

10 in hex is 16.

So you got to do F110.

Yes! That worked!

but, why?

I don’t understand Hexidecimal. How does LPB 10= 64th notes?

not “10”… !

10 in hex → 16 in decimal

0x09 = 09
0x0a = 10
0x0b = 11
0x0c = 12
0x0d = 13
0x0e = 14
0x0f = 15
0x10 = 16
0x11 = 17

and so on.

Right!

NOW I get it!

I feel like a dummy. Thank you!

np… teach two noobs and we’re even ^^

hehe Deal!
