I did not copy e.g. A1 to A2 from the software, but from the hardware mode it works like this:
select the pattern you want to copy and press 'duplicate' - a copy of the pattern will be placed to the next free pattern place.
if you want to copy A1 to lets say A7, you should be able to select all pads by pressing select+all pads. then shift+copy and shift+paste after selecting A7.
did you try this? (sorry I`m not with my maschine at the moment...)
thanks for all your help.
Sorry guys, now i understand! the bar length has to be the same length as the one i copy. hmm strange.. at the first time i copy/paste, after that it works with any length of the bar.
I've just joined this forum to discuss this very problem.
Before installing the controller patch 2.3.3, the Copy and Paste features were working just fine. That is, a patter on A1 could be copied using "shift"+"COPY" (on Pad 11). I would move onto A2 and use "shift"+"PASTE" (on PAD 12). This was a great, easy way of replicating patterns on the fly.
Since installing controller patch 2.3.3, this feature no longer works. I can duplicate, but its frustrating having been able to do something to then have that option taken away!
I have the same problem.2 days ago it worked fine.Now on my next project in Pro Tools 8,paste option is greyed out.I have to save a pattern and then open it in the next to be able to copy...I didn´t do any upgrades between projects.
i find weird behaviour with copy & paste too.
last night i selected the midi data from a rex file and copied it, i highlighted a new sound and tried to paste the midi in there, however the midi data just got pasted in the ORIGINAL sounds lane, not the one i had selected.
i've had weird c&p behaviour issues with maschine in the past. sometimes it works as intended, other times it doesn't. it's difficult to file a bug report as it sometimes works ok.
