VK_PRIOR : PrevPage key.
VK_NEXT : NextPage.
The VK_... names come from the programming constants (Virtual Keys if I remember well).
I will clean the txt file for next version.

I'm really liking this mod so far, any chance for a "shrink/expand pattern" similar to the advanced pattern editor in Renoise? :D

Explain what you want, I don't know Renoise.
I will have some time during summer :-)

I had an idea for this. Interpolation (ctrl+i) is linear. Is there a way to do the same thing but with different curves?

It doubles / halves the lpb & moves the pattern data accordingly.

Yes, using shrink/expand would basically halve or double the pattern length and spaces between any notes. A pattern length of 32 lines would become 16 lines when shrinked, and 64 lines when expanded. 16th notes would become 32nd notes when shrinking, 8th notes when expanding.

Well, you mean "16th notes last twice as many lines when expanding, half when shrinking".
a 16th note is still a 16th note if you change the LPB with ZL XX (for example if you want a certain pattern to be higher resolution than the rest of the song...)

Before:

After expanding:

OK I understand. I will have a look.
About interpolation, I suppose that using other curves is not too difficult.

Thanks a lot for your modification.
I am allways a little bit sceptic about changes from outer space to mother buzz, but this one is an good step forward.
Interested in what is coming next.
Thanks again.

Thank you for your encouragement.
I can try to encode any improvement that does not affect the current functioning of the pattern editor.
Suggestions are welcome.
But I do not have much free time :-).

Interesting idea, but that seems like a bit of overkill. Wouldn't that require buttons above every track in a pattern? I can't imagine how that would work without looking terrible and taking up screen real estate.

there is an expand/collapse button to hide the header info and theres plenty of room up there already
I will be back in August.
enjoy your break chahur, thanks again

Definitely thanks for your work on this! That persistent selection brings back the way old Buzz used to work. :) That'll speed things up.

to mridlen (and ...) :
About interpolation, Pattern XP can interpolate in a linear way (Ctrl + I) or in a exponential way (Ctrl+Shift+I).
What kind of other curves could be useful ?
