Island Repeats / Control Track pattern - mgd - 01-13-2022

[repost from the General Questions section]

Q: Is there a way to have an island repeat x amount of times then proceed to the next adjacent island?

A: This can be achieved by using a dedicated control track. Here is how:

To further elaborate on the control track pattern:
On the control track you can use the SCLK 1XX function to slow down the control track and at the very end use STSP 0XX (as suggested by Thomas) to start your next island. Be sure to (re)set the clock of the control track to whatever is needed at the beginning of the new island.

Here an example:
if you have two islands on tracks 1-3, each two patterns long like e.g.


row T1  T2  T3  T4
00  00  01  02
01  03  04  05
02  --   --   --
03  10  11  12
04  13  14  15
05  --   --   --

and you want that repeated for 5 times you could denote track 4 as control track and add patterns like e.g.:

row T1  T2  T3  T4
00  00  01  02  06
01  03  04  05  07
02  --   --   --   --
03  10  11  12  16
04  13  14  15  17
05  --   --   --   --

and in the first row in pattern 06 you insert FX SCLK 105 (which is divide track clock by 5 immediately) and in the last row of pattern 7 you insert a FX STSP 003. The first line of pattern 16 should hold a FX SCLK 109 (normal clock) or whatever speed you'd need for that island's control track.

Kind regards,
Michael
