The pattern field consists of all channels and works like this: (all fields except note & octave are in hexadecimal)

Pattern editor window

Use insert-key to insert rows and delete-key to delete rows. Backspace removes a row. Every field can be cleared by using the '-' (dash) key. Additional keys can be found in key commands section.

Channels can be muted by clicking it's name in the channel header, double clicking makes it play solo. (Same as Alt+F9 & Alt+F10)

Note column

Note and octave to play. The editor must be in record mode to insert notes in the column (toggle record / normal mode with space). Keyboard keys are mapped to notes as following: Z = C, S = C#, X = D, D = D#, C = E..., and Q, 2, W, 3... are one octave higher. Octave can be changed either by F2 (octave 0) to F9 (octave 7), or stepped up and down with numpad keys '/' and '*'.

Instrument column

The instrument to use. Selected instrument is automatically inserted unless the instrument mask option is selected. If cleared then the last instrument is used.

Volume column

Sets the volume for a channel, range 0 - F. Works only in square and noise-channels.

Channel effects

Used for channel effects. Format is Yxx, where Y = effect number and xx = effect parameter. Additional effect-columns can be used by clicking the arrows in the channel header.
