Type: stripe :: Pattern Int -> Pattern a -> Pattern a

The stripe function repeats a pattern at random speeds. The first parameter gives the number of cycles to operate over, for example stripe 2 will repeat a pattern twice, over two cycles. Each cycle will be played at a random speed, but in such a way that the total duration will be the same.

For example in the following example, the start of every third repetition of the d1 pattern will match with the clap on the d2 pattern.

d1 $ stripe 3 $ sound "bd sd ~ [mt ht]"

d2 $ sound "cp"

slowstripe

Type: slowstripe :: Pattern Int -> Pattern a -> Pattern a

The slowstripe function is the same as stripe but the result is also slowed down by n time (where n is the first parameter of the function. This means that the mean average duration of the stripes is exactly one cycle, and every nth stripe starts on a cycle boundary (in indian classical terms, the sam).

usage:

d1 $ slowstripe 3 $ sound "bd sd ~ [mt ht]"

d2 $ sound "cp"
