Type: euclid :: Pattern Int -> Pattern Int -> Pattern a -> Pattern a

euclid creates a Euclidean rhythmic structure. It produces the same output as the Euclidean pattern string.

For example:

d1 $ euclid 3 8 $ sound "cp"

is the same as

d1 $ sound "cp(3,8)"

euclid accepts two parameters that can be patterns:

d1 $ euclid "<3 5>" "[8 16]/4" $ s "bd"

euclidInv

Type: euclidInv :: Pattern Int -> Pattern Int -> Pattern a -> Pattern a

Inverts the pattern given by euclid. For example,

d1 $ stack [euclid 5 8 $ s "bd",
            euclidInv 5 8 $ s "hh27"]

to hear that the hi-hat event fires on every one of the eight even beats that the bass drum does not.

euclidFull

Type: euclidInv :: Pattern Int -> Pattern Int -> Pattern a -> Pattern a ->Pattern a

euclidFull is a convenience function for playing one pattern on the euclidean rhythm and a different pattern on the off-beat.

euclidFull 5 8 (s "bd") (s "hh27")

is equivalent to our above example.
