[ ] Create a pattern grouping d1 $ s "[bd sd] hh" d1 $ fastcat [s "bd sd", s "hh"]
. Shorthand for pattern grouping d1 $ s "bd sd . hh hh hh" d1 $ s "[bd sd] [hh hh hh]
, Play multiple patterns at the same time d1 $ s "[bd sd, hh hh hh]" d1 $ stack [s "bd sd", s "hh hh hh"]
* Repeat a pattern d1 $ s "bd*2 sd" d1 $ s "[bd bd] sd"
/ Slow down a pattern d1 $ s "bd/2" d1 $ s (slow 2 $ "bd")
< > Alternate between patterns d1 $ s "bd <sd hh cp>" d1 $ slow 3 $ s "bd sd bd hh bd cp"
! Replicate a pattern d1 $ s "bd!3 sd" d1 $ s "bd bd bd sd"
_ Elongate a pattern d1 $ s "bd _ _ ~ sd _" Results in pattern (0>1/2)|s: "bd" (4/6>1)|s: "sd"
@ Elongate a pattern d1 $ s "bd@3 sd" d1 $ s "bd _ _ sd"
? Randomly remove events from pattern d1 $ s "bd? sd" d1 $ fastcat [degradeBy 0.5 $ s "bd", s "sd"]
: Selecting samples d1 $ s "bd:3" d1 $ s "bd" # n 3
( ) Euclidean sequences d1 $ s "bd(3,8)" d1 $ euclid 3 8 $ s "bd"
