Play intro pattern only once then loop the rest. How to?

Hi

Thanks for looking. I have patterns 0 1 2 3 4 5.

Pattern 0 is an intro that should only play once, then the rest of the song e.g. 1 2 3 4 5 shoud keep looping, only playing 0 at the beginning. Can renoise do this? It probably can but I can see it in the manuals or forums :unsure:

Check out this section on the pattern sequencer. It shows pretty much exactly what you’re trying to do, only it has an ending pattern as well. Select 1-5 in the pattern sequencer, then press play from pattern 0 and you should get what you want.

Thanks Pat, so if only the middle few patterns are selected for loop, the song will play through fully once, then cycle through the loop area continuously, right?

PS: Does this looping also apply to an exported song? In the old tracker days if you exported a mod it could use the repeat from a certain pattern command, but if it’s rended from renoise as eg a wav, it only seems to repeat from the start. I guess that’s asking a lot.
