Type: discretise :: Time -> Pattern a -> Pattern a

discretise 'samples' the pattern at a rate of n events per cycle. Useful for turning a continuous pattern into a discrete one.

In this example, the pattern originates from the shape of a sine wave, a continuous pattern. Without discretise the samples will get triggered at a very high frequency.
