So, to cut right to it - let’s say I have a synth on track 1 I’m controlling. Got a nice melody going on pattern 1, have the ARP midi effect on, and I’d like to just make a tiny variation of that ARP for pattern 2 (on the same track). Is there some way I can give the arp midi effect a permanent new setting for pattern 2 without parameter-locking or automating it (let’s say change it from random mode to up/down, for instance)? Let’s say I have a 4 bar loop, for instance, I could always p-lock all the steps or automate over the four bars, but is there a simpler/quicker way to change the midi fx settings for the entire pattern?
I guess I could just use different tracks, and I might end up doing that, but having different midi fx settings per pattern would be ace, and would pretty much make the creation of slight variations of patterns such a breeze.
