Been using for a couple of weeks now, working on my first track. I've started having a bit of trouble remembering which patterns serve what function, e.g.:
- which Beatbox pattern was the drum fill at the end of the verse?
- which was the F#m chord in first inversion on the Padsynth?
- where's the E quarter-note bass pulse in the Subsynth?
So I was writing the patterns out on staff paper and labeling them "A1", "B3" and whatnot, but this morning just thought of something that will probably be easier and more efficient as a reference. I made a 4x16 grid in Excel for the sixteen slots per four banks, wherein I can write notes describing each pattern in use. Also at the top I have spaces to write the title of the composition, the filename, the particular machine that these patterns use, and the patch (sound) that the machine is set to.
I offer them up here to anybody who cares to download and print them.
Here's the Excel file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ygyux61nn7pfio1/Caustic%20-%20Patterns.xlsx
And if you don't have access to Excel, here's a scanned PDF: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xe5757k195wv2rl/CAUSTIC-patterns.pdf
