Modern Pattern Editor 0.9.0.2 beta
  • Based on "Ctrl-Q" code
  • Editing features similar to Pattern XP
  • Beat subdivision
  • Themes & UI customization
  • Chords
  • Keyboard Mapping
  • Check help/settings to learn more
Edit gear.xml (make a copy of gear_defaults.xml if the file does not exist) to something like this:

Code: Select all

<Machine Name="Jeskola Pattern XP" LoadAtStartup="True" DataFormat="PatternXP"/>
<Machine Name="Jeskola Pattern XP mod" LoadAtStartup="True" DataFormat="PatternXP"/>
<Machine Name="Modern Pattern Editor" LoadAtStartup="True" DataFormat="PatternXP"/>
Now you can switch from Pattern XP to MPE and have your data transferred correctly.

Notes:
There will be bugs.
Old toolbars hidden by default -> settings
SubPatterns not supported
Data is saved using new data format. You can enable Pattern XP compatibility from settings.
For some reason switching back to PatternXP loses pattern data

Updated Mire (extended) theme

Thank you WDE for chords addition. :dance:
I'm always careful about switching between the patterns XP versions.
If I switch to the new PatternXP from '<built-in>' , it is no problem,when I switch back from new PatternXP to '<built-in>' I loose the data.Do not worry..we know about this :)

You're unstoppable! :dance:

Slightly wary of trying this one though, the PXP situation is quite confused! :lol:

looks nice. 8-) compatibility is essential.

My eyes got wide for a second there, until I realized that of course 'MPE' would mean Modern Pattern Editor, not MIDI Polyphonic Expression. :lol:

In any case, it'll be fun to try this one out. Thanks for all the work you've put into these extended Buzz features!

Another piece of magic from wde :dance:
Is there any way to set this editor as the default one with gear.xml (or similar) ?

Click the small 'E' button and see 'Def This' and 'Def All' to make MPE default for current machine or to all machines.
