Strike 2 - adding bars

How do I add bars in Strike 2? For some reason in the edit window there are just 2 bars that I can edit. I can't figure out how to make it a 4 bar pattern. Please help!

  • Hi Tim,

    Thanks for posting! I'll be happy to help!

    Are you referring to looping your pattern? If so, you can capture 1-, 2- or 4-bar loops. Please follow the steps below to do this:

    What operating system are you using Strike 2 with? If you're only able to input 2 bars of MIDI data into Strike, it's possible the software may not have installed properly. That being said, I'd recommend uninstalling and reinstalling the software. If you're using a Windows-based computer, try running a Ccleaner scan:

    • Uninstall any programs associated with the device- Open CCLeaner
    • Click Registry
    • Click Scan for Issues
    • Wait
    • Fix Select Issues
    • Click Yes to create a ‘backup’
    • Click Save
    • Click Fix All Selected Issues
    • Run Steps 3-9 two or three more times until there are no issues found.
    • This should have cleared out unnecessary files that may have been causing any conflicts.
    • Reboot your computer
    • Reinstall the software associated with your device
    Let me know how this goes!

  • I’m frustrated

    I am having a similar problem and this response does not answer the original question. There does not seem to be an option to change the amount of bars in the pattern editor. There is an option to zoom and see up to 4 bars but not to change between a 1, 2 or 4 bar pattern. WHY?. Perhaps I want to make a 1 bar pattern or a 4 bar pattern, should be simple right?. I have been through the manual several times and there are no details about this. I have also spent hours trying to find a way to do this with no success. Strike should not tell me I have to program in 2 bar patterns only. I hope I am wrong and there is an option to EASILY change the amount of bars I want to program.
