I am going to play in a post-rock/shoegaze band where I’m supposed to do the drum and some electronic stuff (noises, synth…)
I’m trying to think a nice play to use Renoise in a live, without just pressing play and letting the tracks to go. I thought I could create the whole structure of the song with the tracks for the drum. For example, a track for the kick and one for the snare and so on. So, I create a drum pattern and then I clone it in the pattern matrix four times until there is a different pattern. I thought I could change, live, in real time, the loop (for example adding a snare, or a drum kick, or maybe some effects) so that the beat could change. To achieve this I thought to disable the follow of the position in the pattern, so that while in the pattern matrix it goes on, I could work easily in the pattern editor. The problem is that if I change something in a pattern this does not affect the cloned patterns.
Maybe it’s not clear, so I try to explain it better. I create a pattern and clone it in the pattern matrix four times. While the song plays, I edit just one pattern in the pattern editor and I would like to edit all the cloned patterns. Is there any way to do this or a good and reasonable alternative?
