Hiya… I was mucking around with the blockloop and ended up making a shortcut for forwards+backwards. Both have pattern follow mode toggle on, amongst other things.
But I was just using this …
function loopblockback() renoise.song().transport.loop_block_enabled=true renoise.song().transport:loop_block_move_backwards() renoise.song().transport.follow_player = true end function loopblockforward() renoise.song().transport.loop_block_enabled=true renoise.song().transport:loop_block_move_forwards() renoise.song().transport.follow_player = true end
Now, my question is - when I didn’t have follow player = true, it would function in a really funky way. I’d click forwards and it’d go to 3rd instead of 2nd “segment” (I use 1/4 blocks on LPB4) , and going backwards would go to the last segment and the 3rd segment, and any number of pressing would take you 4-3-4-3-4-3 or 1-2-1-2-1. I gave up and set follow_player=true adn then it worked.
So what I’m asking is, is it possible to create a secondary bunch of forwards+back for loopblock, which are designed to “actually work” ( i.e., the same way as follow=on blockloop works).
It’d be amazing to be able to … oh, you know
I’m going the +1 / -1 route, and will try and implement warning signals in the status window if you’re trying to -1 from LoopBlock 2.
Not really making any +1/-1 progress, ended up doing statuswindow messages for other stuff
