Hi! How about you add another tab (page) for a simple block arrange mode? The blocks could represent the one bar patterns you create and could be moved/copy-pasted/deleted... on a stacked or scrolling timeline. Click on a block in the timeline and it selects that particular pattern for editing in the rest of the interface. The current pattern/part/song implementation kind of sucks for making full arrangements.

I watched a tutorial you featured on your facebook page from Nu-Trix the Synth Guy. When we get to the part of the video where he attempts to expand a few variations of a pattern into a song, even he is unsure of how the sequence will play. That should tell you something about the tedious, opaque, and error prone way songs are arranged in Egoist: Patterns -> pattern buttons, pattern buttons -> part buttons, part buttons -> song button... It’s not that the current process is really difficult, it’s just not very conducive to using egoist for full track production IMO. 🙂

I agree, this would be great. Along with several outputs.
