How do you record NOT INTO A PATTERN into FL studio? I have a beat down and I'm trying to use Sytrus to have a moving guitar melody. But it only lets me record for as long as the pattern is, then it repeats itself and layers over itself.

Man, FL studio's interface is really nice but Cubase is way easier to work with when it comes to straight up recording...

It should extend the pattern automatically, though it maybe depends whether you are in pattern or song mode. Also, I don't know if the pattern should be empty - I always make sure to record into an empty one.

Edifying, thanks.

Anyway, I think I got this figured out. I'm not used to having to switch "patterns" every time I want to lay down a new track that doesn't conform to the format of any previous track. I feel like I'm making this more complicated than I need to, but I'll do what I've always done and muddle along for now.
