A global gate time per pattern is just not enough for serious production. Please add a new gate lane beside the already present Velocity, Repeat and Probability lanes to allow editing gate on a per step basis. Cheers.

Isn't it possible to get creative and run it through a NoteFX Repeater in a channel editor, and setting gate length for the steps within it?

Don't know, just trying to think out of the box...

Well, not really. If you only have one variation in your pattern, maybe, though the repeater only goes up to 32 steps so for longer patterns that's not viable anymore. How about if you have 8 different variations in your pattern?

Besides, that's not the point. Any decent step sequencer out there offers the ability to set different gates lengths per step. I believe that option should be available in the pattern editor without the need to "be creative" about such a basic feature.
