Type: run :: (Num a, Enum a) => Pattern a -> Pattern a

The run function generates a pattern representing a cycle of numbers from 0 to n-1 inclusive. Notably used to ‘run’ through a folder of samples in order:

d1 $ n (run 8) # sound "amencutup"

The first parameter to run can be given as a pattern:

d1 $ n (run "<4 8 4 6>") # sound "amencutup"


Type: scan :: (Num a, Enum a) => Pattern a -> Pattern a

scan is similar to run, but starts at 1 for the first cycle, adding an additional number each cycle until it reaches n

d1 $ n (scan 8) # sound "amencutup"
