so i am not sure where to put this question - thought this might be the best place.
i want to do something along the lines of having a main pattern in, lets say, 16 lines. in there i would like to have a kickdrum going in 4/4 and then i would like to have something in maybe 5 or 3 or something else that doesn’t add up to 16.
i know that i can make a phrase that has another length, but i will always have to retrigger this phrase at some point - ie. a sort of reset.
so, it would be easy to generate a polyrhythm which is reset every 16/32/64/whatever lines, but i want to make one where i trigger it ONCE in the beginning and then it will just continue onwards and never need to be “reset”. i know that i would be able to do this with different pattern length and making it all add up at one point, but think that this is unreasonable difficult to do.
what i want to do in a more normal step sequencer terminology is just making two tracks with two different pattern lengths with no “master” length controlling or resetting the other patterns.
so, my question is, if this actually is possible in a way i haven’t thought of yet?
