I am new to Beatcraft. My first experience with a pattern sequencer was with FL Studio. I've "known" about Beatcraft as long as I've known about Mixcraft (Which is great! And thank you Greg and all you other moderators for doing such a good job providing such an awesome service here! Where do I sign up! Apprenticeship?) Anyways, like is said, I "knew" about beatcraft, but when I realized that Beatcraft has a pattern sequencer very similar to that of FL studio's, I had to give it a try! Now I am trying to see how similar they are. I hope you are familiar with FL Studio because I have not found a good free screenshot app yet(suggestions?) and I'm framing the question around information specific to Fruity Loops.
Okay, So, In FL studio the first thing that pops up when you open the program is a dialogue box for "pattern 1". In the upper right corner of the "pattern 1" dialogue box is a small keyboard icon called the "keyboard editor". When the "keyboard editor" icon is pressed, an array of keyboards drop down from the "beat steps"(for lack of a better title) of whichever instrument is selected. By selecting different notes on these many mini keyboards you can easily change the pitch of the selected instrument on specific beats, which is AWESOME!
If you understand what I have described here, can you please tell me if Beatcraft has a similar function, and if "Yes", please describe how to use it.
