If I record an 8 bar midi instrument part and then use the "Convert Part to Pattern" function, it only converts 2 bars of it.

I understand the default pattern is 2 bars if you want to insert a new Pattern per the Studio One manual. But aren't there any settings to capture the complete instrument midi part for the Convert Part to Pattern function?

Maybe this will help? :roll:

Also see this starting at 26:10.

Be aware of your loop setting and start and stop markers too.

That’s correct, it will truncate your pattern because the number of steps and resolution in the operation is limited.

Was the first thing I noticed with the feature. From scottyo7 rolling his eyes it sounds like he still hasn’t noticed.

I would much rather they have used their Delay automation feature here but that’s how they designed it /shrug

But I would rather see patterns as an alternate editor for the existing musical data editor (key editor).
Like how you can have a drum editor, list editor, score editor and.... pattern editor.

The max is 2 bars? I haven't used Pattern Mode other than peaking at it, but I know it goes up to 64 steps with varying resolution. Or maybe converting to pattern maxes out at 2 bars?

I've been meaning to check out Pattern Mode again. I remember some cool features in there. I try my best not to be too loopy, but using variations could address that. I'm going to take another look, though something about it turned me off last time.

Yeah, I remember wishing they had just put some of the Pattern features into the Drum Editor.

Max is 64 steps. It ups the resolution to accommodate note positioning. Depending on where the notes fall in your pattern, a pattern with a few events could easily be 64 steps.

Really wish they looked at how Maschine, FL Studio, and Renoise a little more when conceiving all of this, as it's not really useful to use the Melodic Pattern Editor when it's at 64 steps either. It's like using a Tracker, sideways, with a broken keyboard and only a mouse. ;)

So are we confirming that the pattern editor will truncate an instrument part no matter what settings we have related to loop or markers?

I ask because I did check the markers and loop range and they are set for longer than two bars.

It will use the highest resolution it has to use to represent the notes in the Part in a pattern.

After it chooses its resolution, it is limited to 64 steps.

If you have a few notes that aren't quantized and a phrase thats a couple bars long, the resulting pattern will be very short and will not include all your notes.

Notice how some of these are 1 bar long and some are 2 bars? All of them have 64 steps.
