Get pattern position in sequencer

song.selected_pattern_observable:add_notifier (TEST)

function TEST()
  print("TEST cur_pat_seq_pos", song.transport.playback_pos.sequence)

So, this function runs when I move up/down in pattern sequencer, but it usually prints previous pattern position. Am I doing it wrong?

Perhaps because Renoise editor counts from 0 but Lua starts lists/arrays at 1.

I meant that it prints the position of pattern that was selected before selection changed.

Or is Renoise wrong? :slight_smile:

Curiosity, does it work better if you change:

print("TEST cur_pat_seq_pos", song.transport.playback_pos.sequence)

to read the selected sequence index?

print("TEST cur_pat_seq_pos",

(manually moving between patterns)

Yes, it does. Thanks!

Ok (so long as the user hasn’t decoupled the playback from the editing position (i.e. hit the scroll lock key) etc…) But there is still a problem returning incorrect values with your first example (SongPos object)

that Renoise needs to look at(?)
