  Gah! Another question. (pattern length)        Go on top to this Page

OK, so I'm working on my first song, and I reach the point where I add length to the pattern. I put the pattern up to the level where the arrow stopped moving the number (1023). Then I reach the end of that. I tried to add more by typing in a new number (3000) but it didn't work.

How do you add more length to the pattern? Is 1023 the maximum number? If not, what is and how do you add more?

Can I ask why you want a pattern that long? 1024 is very long! Why not use multiple patterns?

Oh, and yes, I'm pretty sure 1024 is the maximum pattern length - but of course, you can have many many patterns (256 I think)!

Well, my song is pretty fast, so it takes up more space faster. I was hoping for a large composing space when I downloaded this program (like a really high or unlimited limit).
By multiple patterns, do you mean like seperate files, or mutiple patterns in the song? I know you can have up to 64 tracks. What do you mean by multiple patterns, and how do I do it?

P.S. My song takes up that much space because I want it to be a good size for Flash Flash Revolution .

LOL!


To the OP:

Nope. What TranceMyriad is saying is about the number of patterns you can have on a song. (max 256 patterns, I think too)

So, you're using a 1024 rows pattern ( )? If you need more patterns, you can click on the "new" button at the left side of the program (pattern sequence editor) Voilá! There's a brand new pattern, for your pleasure.

Go to pattern editor (F3), right click on it, and choose "pattern properties". Throw in any length up to 1024.

Personally, I don't see much sense in work with this long patterns. I preffer to have some 64 steps patterns, but maybe other styles than electronic 4x4 can benefit from it.

Hah, now I realize how stupid I must sound.
I thought that the whole song goes in the pattern. The pattern thing wasn't making sense to me, so I downloaded a song off here. Then I saw how to do it.

Yea, that's confusing to me too. What song did you download that made it clear?

Any song you want.

Also note that Psycle 1.8.5 comes with 4 demo songs, so you may already have those.


The concept of Trackers has always been a group of sheets (patterns), sequenced in order in a single line sequence. (in case of psycle, the list on the left). You can repeat the patterns inside this sequence.


That, as opposed to sequencers or DAW's, that have a multiple line sequence, where you write the notations separatedly.

I have done some experimentation with large pattern sizes and large LPB Values in order to get more accurate sounding guitar strums. It sounds VERY convincing, but unfortunately I found it too annoying and frustrating to make more than 2 patterns worth of strumming... But you can definitely tweak the timing of the notes, and the note volumes in the strums to affect strum direction, strum speed, hardness and natural variation... While 1024 lines would accommodate a greater range of control, it also makes it unwieldy, and something I'd only use if we had a multipattern sequencer which allowed separate LPB between patterns.

In other words, the time you would invest in using that kind of accuracy in a tracker, is only worth it if you can re-use a lot of it...
