"if you succeed in getting notes past beat 1"

I meant beat4(or the last beat)

You could use a segment trigger track to call a secondary segment that
plays your ending.  It would play that over your main segment when it
looped.

Also, there are ways of getting notes past that last beat. It requires
some weird dragging of notes.  I forget how I used to do it.  The only
thing is if you succeed in getting notes past beat 1, the timing can get
dangerous since everything is just an extended beat4 (or last beat of
your time sig).  This means the timing is relative to where beat4 is and
not the beat you are actually on.

I understand the purpose of extension measures now; thank you. Let me
explain exactly what I want to do:

1. Play a pattern twice
2. Overlap the resolution chord the follows the first pattern with the
beginning of the next pattern (the use of "End" added in an extra,
non-overlapping measure when I tried it).
3. Repeat this next pattern twice, etc. Since it is repeated, the =3D3D
resolution
chord *needs* to overlap the next phrase.

Last time I forgot to sign it,

Hi,

    As far as I know, extension measures are used for notes that begin
within the body of the pattern, but are long enough to extend beyond the
last barline.  For example, if you had a whole note begin on beat 4 of =
=3D
=3D3D
bar
4, it would extend 3 beats into the first extension measure.  DMProducer
adds these measures automatically when you add a long note, edit a =3D3D
note's
length, or paste from the clipboard.
    If your melody played only one time (not multiple times), then you =
=3D
=3D3D
could
start the notes on the absolute last tick of bar 4, and achieve the =
=3D3D
effect
you're looking for (it would be basically indistinguishable from beat 1
=3D3D
of
the next bar).
    I assume the idea is for the resolution chord to overlap something =
=3D
=3D3D
else
that follows?
    Otherwise, you could simply create a second pattern, 1 bar long,
containing the resolution chord.  Give it the same groove range and =
=3D3D
click on
the "end" button, and it's easy to call that up from your segment.
    Depending on exactly what you're trying to accomplish, there may be
different ways to do it.

    Saul.
