Working withe a live drummer, I would like to give him a count-in whenever before a new pattern is engaged.
Let em explain more:
I am playing pattern 1. Pattern 1 will loop indefinitely until I decide to go to pattern 2 which is determined by my own desire to go there when it feels right musically.
I now press pattern 2 which is cued and is highlighted yellow as it waits for pattern 1 to complete its loop. While pattern 2 is still yellow and not actually active, I would like to give the drummer a count-in to coincide with pattern 2 becoming active. That way the drummer is aware that pattern 2 is about to engage and that he is to go to a different beat.
Can this be done?
I was thinking that I could put a count-in same on a an audio track and to trigger this manually when I go to cue pattern 2. However, that would require me to jump between different places and require me to trigger the count-in sample in time with the music - this could easily go wrong.
