I’m a very new member here. Signed up mostly to get the following question answered (I did try to search for it):
I used Impulse Tracker way back in the days, and in IT you could edit patterns that weren’t used in the sequencer, if you know what I mean. I don’t know if this feature just isn’t present in Renoise or if I’m too stupid to figure out how it works. In IT’s pattern view you’d use a keyboard shortcut to scroll back and forth between patterns and I really miss that in Renoise!
Maybe it’s just a question of reversing my work process, and I guess I could get used to that, but if the feature is there I’d like to know
You can still KINDA do it. In the pattern matrix on the very left you have boxes with numbers and a couple of arrows on either side. That’s the same kind of pattern selector that you would find in a traditional tracker. The only difference is, it references all tracks at a particular pattern number, so if you’re looking for an individual pattern selector for an instrument, I’m not really sure where to go. A lot of people have just taken to using the matrix to copy>paste patterns instead of repeating similar ones, or just writing everything out.
Read the other thread, and it’s exactly the same thing the OP and I are after… Your suggestion is a useful ‘workaround’ I guess. At least it beats reaching for your mouse to scroll up and down in the sequencer.
Thanks for both replies. Still keeping my fingers crossed for that other feature though
