If I look back the Protracker, Oktalyzer, Octamed etc., they all had also the step length value enabled on cursor move. That’s some detail I still don’t like in Renoise, even this is for a good reason for sure. Could there be an option for that? Maybe “strict step length mode”.
Also it would be imo nice, if step mode could be enabled and disabled with a button / a key command, so I don’t have to set it to 1 again, just pressing caps-lock for enable/disable step mode.
Cyclic edit mode? no, there is no kind of pattern lock natively, but likely scriptable and perhaps already done, with the paketti tool? I haven’t checked it though.
If not perhaps a good suggestion to add such feature into that script.
LOL thanks for your answers, but neither the continuous button nor Taktik’s loop tool will help here really.
If I am editing and reach the end of the pattern, I would like that Renoise jumps to the beginning of the pattern, if I continue to move down.
The only work-around I found is to insert the pattern two times in the sequence and activate continuous mode. Would be nice if continuous mode would realize if a part of sequence is looped by highlighting the loop button next to the sequence position number. Or the “loop current pattern” button.
If you are editing, the cursor moves to the beginning of the pattern after having inserted data on the last line when continues mode is not on.
If you want it to have it on the beginning of the pattern when moving, simply use the home key
