The answer is probably very simple and I've probably had a brain fart in my search terms when trying to find this information, but I have no idea how to do this.
Okay, I'm making a song that has a slightly complicated (timing-wise) guitar part at the beginning that plays by itself until I play three chords, at which point I have Hydrogen punctuate it with some hits. It goes through twice before the drums come in full time for the rest of the song.
I start the song with eight beats from Hydrogen to give me a count, but I tend to be slightly off when I hit those three chords. I can get those straight, but there's a time change (from 145bpm to 130bpm) when the drums come in full time and I wind up a little off on that part. I'm fairly certain that part of it is that I'm paying too much attention to what's going on in my computer screens, but I feel like I could rectify it without looking away if I could get the pattern editor to follow the song, i.e., show whatever pattern is playing at the moment.
I can do that, right? What am I missing?
