Type: rotL :: Time -> Pattern a -> Pattern a -> Pattern a

rotL Shifts a pattern back in time by the given amount, expressed in cycles.

This will skip to the fourth cycle when evaluated:

do
{
  resetCycles;
  d1 $ rotL 4 $ seqP [ 
    (0, 12, sound "bd bd*2"), 
    (4, 12, sound "hh*2 [sn cp] cp future*4"), 
    (8, 12, sound (samples "arpy*8" (run 16)))
  ]
}

Useful when building and testing out longer sequences.

rotR

rotR is the opposite of rotL as it shifts the pattern forwards in time.
