    So let's say I have a Scene with a bass loop of 4 bars on A1.

    If I make a 1 bar loop on B1 and a 1 bar break on B2, can my scene be like this?

    -A1----------------------------------
    -B1----- -B1----- -B1----- -B2-----

    ?

    But it would be cool.
    I used to do that in FruityLoops long time ago :)

    Who knows... maybe it will be possible in future updates. For a v1 app, Maschine is pretty neat, considering the hardware integration.

    i am actually a bit confused as to what you would want to do.

    what would you have on B1 and 2?

    in Maschine each Group has 4 Banks A, B, C, and D. in your example, are all the Patterns from the same Group? meaning are they all the same Bass Sound?

    no.

    I actually was saying if I have a bass loop on Group B, playing for 4 bars if it's possible to to repeat drum loop A1 (which has 1 bar) for three times, and then fill the remaining bar with A2, which is a break.

    But EW has answered that, and just as I suspected, you can't do that.

    It's no biggie, but it would've been cool

    you could do it if you copied and pasted the same 1 bar drum pattern 3 times and did a fill on bar 4.

    but i know what you mean, it would be nice to have patterns that overlap shorter patterns.

    Slightly different question... Is it possible to have two separate patterns going w/ two different step lengths? eg. 1 pattern 16 steps long, another pattern 11 steps long?

    I can't imagine NOT having this functionality in MASCHINE, but thought I'd ask...

    It works if they are in the same group too. A lot of factory kits are like that.
