Often I’ll duplicate a track (incl. patterns), then change the instrument in the new track so I can quickly double one instrument with another complementary sound.
I right click to select Track>select, set the src. instrument and dest. instrument in the advanced pattern editor, and press swap.
When I do this, it only applies the change to the currently selected pattern, not the whole track (even though, again, the whole track is selected).
Is this a bug or do I have an incomplete understanding of what “selecting a track” means? Educate me please.
BTW doubling a track with a different instrument is a pretty common activity that could stand to be simpler in Renoise. Maybe a right click option to Track>swap instrument would be a nice addition to core Renoise? What do you think?
Do not confuse the Matrix with the control area of the Advanced Pattern Editor Options. Steps:
- Ignore the Matrix.
- Go to the Advanced Pattern Editor Options panel.
- Inside the Advanced Pattern Editor Options panel, display the top frame and select “Track in Song”.
- Inside the Advanced Pattern Editor Options panel/Instruments frame, set src. and dest. instrument, and press swap.
You must understand how the selection area works within the Advanced Pattern Editor Options panel:
That’s interesting thanks – am I correct that this selection process doesn’t help me if I want to apply “humanize” or “quantize” to a pattern, track, etc?
You can also do it: selection area, parameters, type of modification and apply.
