Something I like doing in my pattern programming is using the panning column to zig zag note events across the stereo field, contrasting every subsequent event, roughly with an opposite counterpart, iterating towards the panning center and back out to the panning extremes of left and right, back to the center again et cetera. Sort a like using a sinewave to automate the panning slider, but now stepwise based on note event placement in the pattern editor. The values aren’t further interpolated between events, there are just as much panning values as there are note events.
It can look like this:
Notice that I arbitrarily start at one side with the value 10 and the next event having value 70, then 20, next 60…thus steps of 10, using the center which is value 40 as end point at which the process repeats itself.
I think it would be nice to have a tool in which you can set the extremes (panning borders, in the above pic 10 & 70), the amount of panning between events and have it stepwise zig zag the panning trajectory only on note events.
Sometimes I’ve also done similar zig zagging based on note events in the automation editor using point values, might be more useful to have a global tool which zig zags any parameter in the automation editor!
