Type: append :: Pattern a -> Pattern a -> Pattern a

append combines two patterns into a new pattern, where cycles alternate between the first and second pattern.

d1 $ append (sound "bd*2 sn") (sound "arpy jvbass*2")

It has the alias slowAppend, in sympathy with fastAppend, described below.

fastAppend

Type: fastAppend :: Pattern a -> Pattern a -> Pattern a

fastAppend works like append described above, but each pair of cycles from the two patterns are squashed to fit a single cycle.

d1 $ fastAppend (sound "bd*2 sn") (sound "arpy jvbass*2")
