I like to use the Step Length feature in the pattern editor to quickly add drum hits at specific intervals – like every 4, 8 lines or whatever.
Is it possible to do this while copy-pasting? I’d love to be able to create a 16-line pattern, copy it, and paste with my step length at 16, quickly filling up all 64 lines with a repeating pattern.
Is there a way to do this? Anyone else think this is a good idea?
Try the “paste continuously” function, mapped to CTRL + P by default.
It will repeat whatever is on the clipboard, until the end of the pattern is reached.
Hi I know this is an old thread, but it’s the first one that comes up when searching “paste step length”. Still unclear how to make Ctrl-P paste in steps greater than 1.
I use this constantly now. Thanks @dblue !
- select the number of lines you want to copy (let’s say 8 lines),
- go to where you want to paste, and press
This will repeat those 8 lines over and over until the end of the pattern.
