Summary: Harmonic and Melodic Patterns

In this tutorial, you learned how to use Flow to create musical patterns with harmony, arpeggio, melody and modulations.

You also learned how to route Flow's MIDI output to multiple synths using Ableton Live's Key Zones feature and mixer transposition parameter, which allowed you to create rich and layered sounds with different instruments.

You explored how to create sub-state machines within each state, which enabled you to create more complex and hierarchical musical structures. You learned how to grow your musical models both inwards and outwards, adding more depth and diversity to your musical sequences. You've also seen how the sequence can be reset every few bars to create a sense of resolution and repetition.

With a deeper understanding of Flow's capabilities, you can now create more sophisticated and expressive music with state machines.
