Hello glad i found it! Question about pattern looping?
« on: March 29, 2012, 11:35:39 »

Hi all!

Man im so glad i have found this place.... I have always loved the keygen music and crack music on my old Amiga games and after research i found that Milky Tracker can replicate all of this! I have already downloaded some old Radix songs and im on my way learning how to compose in this excellent package!

One question though, im playing a Pattern back but it keeps looping over and over. Is there a way to just play the pattern once then stop?

Many thanks for looking

Generally, in a tracker, the song loops forever and in a player it plays once or loops, depending on the settings. It sounds like this is a workflow issue and for that I have to say no, I don't think there is a way to have the pattern play behave like that. At least not at the moment.

For finished songs, you can use effect commands to slow down the song, stick it in a silent loop, kill the global volume or in some cases even stop the song dead but I would advice against it. Modules are natively looping sequences and players and listeners expect that. In most cases I would imagine such tricks would either be skipped by a player to advance to the next song on the playlist OR they would cause a nasty pause before that.
