Time Signatures

i’ve lurked for a bit, and i read something about how to use time signatures in renoise, but i cant find it. so renoise users, what do you have to change to get a certain time signature. theres an equation for this, isnt there?

it’s about pattern length and the relation to song speed.
at the most common speeds, 3 and 6 there are 8 and 4 LPB (lines per beat) respectively.

so at speed 3;
1 bar of 3/4 is 24 lines (18 in hex).
1 bar of 4/4 is 32 lines (20 in hex).
1 bar of 5/4 is 40 lines (28 in hex).
1 bar of 7/4 is 56 lines (38 in hex).
if speed 6 halve each pattern length.

formula is: (desired number of beats per bar) * (desired number of bars) * LPB
e.g. 4 bars of 4/4 at speed 6 = 4 * 4 * 4 = 64 (40 in hex)
e.g. 2 bars of 7/4 at speed 3 = 7 * 2 * 8 = 112 (70 in hex)

Syflom speaks the truth.

  • you can adjust highlighting in patterns to maybe help you program more easily in the other sigs.

thank you!

wait, what?! where?! :w00t:

check the song setting tab and play around with the ‘pattern/seq highlight’ sliders to suit your needs :slight_smile:

hurray for thee, captain !!
