Since the speed is gone and eaten by automatable LPB would it be sensible to measure pattern length in beats rather than lines? This way if I want to change LPB in the middle of the song the pattern would just stretch or shrink accordingly. Otherwise I always have to change the length manually.
Or would this be impossible because if decerased some notes already inserted could be destructed? Because this would definetly be more logical cuz renoise is heading towards beat-metering.
Uh that’s what I wanted this for. If I change lpb in the middle of the pattern I need to go resizing. Whereas if Renoise would calculate the pattern length by itself and change it accordingly then I would need no do this.
Maybe select area and then increase or decrease it to make that area different LPB, and automatically place according pattern commands to master track? Or hide them altogether? This would be like zooming, no? Maybe a warning if shrinked if danger for pattern data loss, or simply not allow to decrease under the point where note space is at minimum?
