I am working on a chord progression. I want one chord in the progression to be 1/4 of a measure, but I cannot find a way to make a pattern that is shorter than 1 measure. So I make the pattern for the chord 1 measure long, and I have dead space at the end of the pattern. I try to eliminate this by turning off quantization and moving the next patter over to where the notes stop on the first patter. I get an error because I am overlapping patterns.
What is the correct way to do this? Is there no way to make a pattern that is less than 1 measure? Overlapping patterns is extremely difficult, so I don't really want to mess with that.
Thank you in advance for your help, this is driving me crazier.
Edit: I hate my phone sometimes.
