2. The Interface
2.1. The Pattern Editor
2.1.1. The Notes
- Merge (the most familiar/least useful)
- In this mode recorded events are merged into the pattern on each pass through the loop. This is how most sequencers work, but it usually just results in a jumble of notes that require much manual cleaning up.
- Overwrite (each pass [with input] replaces the previous contents of the pattern)
- This is like merge mode, except that the pattern is cleared before the recorded events are input. If no notes have been played during a loop, the pattern remains unchanged. This is a great way to just get a part down without having to remove your hands from the instrument.
- Layer (each pass [with input] goes into a new pattern)
- This is just like overwrite mode, except that the pattern actually overwritten is a duplicate. Use this mode to record several loops of the same length without removing your hands from the instrument.
- In this mode, all recorded events are placed into a new pattern (of whatever length) when recording is stopped.

3.1.1. About Jack MIDI Connections
Older versions of QJackCtl and other connection managers do not know about Jack MIDI ports. Please make sure you're using an up-to-date version.
