Smooth switching of patterns in live pa

Hello everybody. Recently I became the owner of OT MK2. I want to use it in live pa and use OT only without another gear.

Can you please tell me if there are any ways to smoothly switch from pattern to pattern, so that the live is without abrupt changes in patterns, but is more consistent and with beautiful imperceptible smooth transitions?

It’s not that easy to describe the transition trick in a few lines, but there are already tons of informations available.

In short the trick is to record a loop, crossfade to the recorded loop, switch pattern, crossfade back to the live audio.

Easy. Programme your patterns so one pattern leads into the next.

Pretty standard sequencer flow really.
