Hi,  just wondering if it is at all possible to have the pattern editor set to "auto rewind" to the beginning of a pattern when Stop is pressed ?    I understand the drummer is set up to Play / Pause with the Spacebar, and I understand that if you actually click the little square stop button on the Transport graphic the pattern will rest to Zero.  Is there a way to reconfigure keystroke commands to have the space bar Start / Stop and reset to Zero ??

This looks like a great piece of software with lots of potentilal but one of the things I am most interested in is using it as a basic beat box for live music and I need it to reset to Zero when I stop a pattern.

Please.... if this can be done, please let me know.  Thanks in advance !!

Hi,

You mean something like "Backspace" key already doing ?

Hi . . . .  I understand the Backspace key will reset a pattern to Start or 00:00:00.

What would be really great is if the Space Bar (or any key for that matter) would Start a pattern when pressed,  Stop the playing the pattern when pressed again  A N D  reset the pattern to 00:00:00 at the same time.  In otherwords . . . . one key, preferably the Space Bar, would START a pattern playing when pressed and when pressed again would STOP playing the pattern AND RESET the the playhead to the start position.  All three actions accomplished on the same key.

The goal being to have a pattern start every time with full confidence that it will be on the downbeat and not somewhere in between.

I sure hope this feature might be included in any new updates, the drum machine looks great but is pretty much useless as a working tool for musicians who want to work with beat patterns and not fully programmed songs.
