What is the point of having the ability to export as pattern when you can't import it?

What is the point of having the ability to export as pattern when you can't import it?

All I'm trying to do is copy a pattern from one sequence to another sequence. You know something that ought to be common practice. No cant do it, well its not obvious how. And I've looked in the manual and the Bible.

  • Yeah I had the same problem last yesterday.

    I was in a rush to finish a track so abandoned doing it on the MPC and did in DAW instead, though I would have preferred to.

    I created a song structure fist by creating a load of sequences and planned to copy the beat and other parts to other sections, BUT it didn't seem like there was a way to copy a pattern(track) to another sequence.

    Can only copy tracks to the same sequence, I was like huh?

    Seems like the workflow on MPC live is to create one sequence with lots of tracks and mute track to build up other sections, then duplicate that one sequence and delete or mute tracks as necessary.

    correct me if I'm wrong. how else to move say just the drums from one sequence to another.

  • I suggest you should read the manual first...

    Patterns load from Browser window...Locate it in your MPC and load it..
    Also i suggest to check all the pensil actions in Main window..

  • Well if thats true, its not intuitive is it. You should be able to load from the same place you save from. Its just common sense.

  • Hey everybody,

    Thanks for posting!

    If you want to copy sequence data in a project directly to another sequence in the same project, push the Main button on your MPC and select the pencil icon at the right side of the Sequence panel. This menu will offer different options to copy elements of your sequence (the entire sequence, selected bars, or selected events).

    If you want to copy one sequence's pattern to another sequence, select Sequence under Copy, select the sequence from which you want to copy data, select a destination sequence, and press Do It.

    All content is loaded into a project from the Browser menu, whether it is an audio sample, program, pattern, or otherwise.

    I hope this is helpful!

    Thanks for helping out, Yorgos!
