maybe this already can be done natively and I’m unaware of it, if not I hope a scripter can help me out with the following:
I’d like to make a selection in the pattern editor, press a keyboard shortcut, and have the selection ‘broadened’ to all tracks to the right of the selection, using another shortcut all tracks to the left and one for both left and right.
Would be nice to have for example to quickly create ‘gates’ in cloned patterns, making variations, using ctrl+x on the broadened selection cutting away all notes.
That’s what I used to do, too
the annoying thing is there’s no shortcut for ‘go to last send track’, you had to do Shift+Ctrl+Home, Left (def. setup) (or do I maybe not need to select those to render them too??)
Could you please add three more keyboard shortcuts, additional ‘Note Solo’ modes not using Note-Off, but 00 in the volume column to mute? Ideally taking into consideration original volume settings… so if an instrument is set at 40 in the volume column, mute with 00 and bring back to life again at 40 first line outside the selection.
Sometimes you have sample loops in other tracks that get cut-off silent through the note-solo shortcut and need manual work to sound again. Using 00 in the volume column and the original volume setting, this isn’t an issue anymore and leads to careless soloing! If running through a pattern and remembering of volume settings for each instrument proofs to difficult to implement, I’d be happy with a default of 80 for un-muting.
So 00 to mute and 80 in the volume column at the first line outside selection to sound again .
Very good idea
first I’ll try just looking up the last volume used (only in current pattern, traversing back might be too much of a hassle?) and use that. Should Note-Offs still be an option or is 00 method actually always preferred? I’ll just include both in a next beta version
