In Tidal 1.0.0, the way you interact with patterns has changed a bit.
The range of functions for interaction set up by default can be seen in the bootup code.
Patterns by number and by name
As before you can use
d2 etc to start different patterns, e.g:
d1 $ sound "bd sd" d1 $ silence
But now as an alternative you can also use
p and specify any number, like this:
p 100323523 $ sound "bd sd" p 100323523 $ silence
Theoretically, you can have any number of patterns running at once.
You can also refer to them by name, if you want.
p "jimmy" $ sound "bd sd" p "susan" $ sound "cp(3,8)" p "jimmy" $ silence p "susan" $ silence
If you want to do a transition, you put it in place of the
xfade "susan" $ sound "gabba(3,8,<0 2 4)" xfade "susan" $ sound "cp*2"
(The old t1, t2 etc method no longer works.)
Doing things once
If you just want a pattern to run for one cycle and then stop, you can do use
once $ s "bd sd(3,8)"
Changing tempo with setcps
Just give it the number of cycles per second, for example if your cycle has two beats in, this will be the equivalent of 120 bpm:
Changing tempo with cps
cps is no longer a standalone function (`setcps` above now does this), but a control pattern. Patterning cps is fun. Patterns don't (yet) have independent tempos though, if you change it on one pattern, it changes on all of them.
p "cpsfun" $ s "bd sd(3,8)" # cps (slow 8 $ 0.5 + saw)
