I’ve described the use case in details in the Beginner’s forum under “Working with patterns”. Basically, as soon as jack sync is enabled (Linux version) then no matter which amount of patterns there are, Renoise will play them and then loop on the last one. This makes it awkward to develop patterns when Renoise plays along tracks recorded in a DAW (Ardour for instance). Well, it actually makes it impossible to do. I’d expect that Renoise would simply loop on all the defined patterns during the playing of the audio tracks from Ardour. Ardour starts the playing. Then it would make it possible to add patterns to Renoise and play the song again, and so on so forth until all patterns are defined for the length of the song. Is this possible under Windows ?
Pressing the loop button does not help. Nor toggling on the small gray vertical bar at the left of each pattern. No matter what, Renoise will play the patterns and then loop on the last one defined.
