    Patterns let you do some kind of granular synthesis using patterns:

    You can create very short sound sequences, assemble them together so that they blend into each other. Select the group of sounds and make them into a pattern: This gives you a reusable "granular" pattern that you can reuse in other patterns or place directly in your piece.

    excuse both my english and my ignorance!
    there is this motion guide thing in flash where you are able to link up things to a curve, and then move them around together. those drastic pitch changes what high c is capable of would be fun to apply to relatively fixed clouds, just pitching them and streching them.

    hmm, i might be unclear. :)
    great stuff, just a few days into messing about with it.

    I guess I should prepare a demo rather than trying to use text to depict what is purely graphic... Same as you !

    Here is a very rough idea: pierrotgranulaire.upic uses one complex pattern made of many very small sounds to create a strange sounding instrument...

    Do you have a link to an example to see what you mean ?
    I've been doin' this stuff, admin.. it's great. Cutting and pasting clouds allows for quickly (exponentially, actually) building up grain clouds. I don't usually use the pattern-making thing, but I could see where that would get right around some issues I've had with selecting passages, etc. A little planning ahead by saving motifs as patterns.. aha! good post.
    just on another note, in order to shorten the duration of sounds, I commonly select a bunch of them, then drag the right side of the 'box' to the left, shortening the duration while leaving the frequencies exactly the same. This allows any degree of detail without needless (or even limited on a micro time scale) zooming.
    The whole idea of selecting and dragging to the box was something I never knew. Thanks for sharing the inputs.
