When creating songs, sometimes I like to have 2 separate patterns play simultaneously within the song. Unfortunately, this seems to combine the volume of the 2 patterns, thereby doubling the song's volume during those particular measures.
Of course I could copy the two patterns, and make the duplicates play at half-volume, and then only use those duplicate patterns when I want to play them simultaneously together --- thus the resulting song-volume during those measures will equal the volume of the remainder of the song.
But I imagine that there are probably one or two superior ways to accomplish this --- I simply haven't discovered them yet. Thanks in advance for ideas and advice!
