== Usage
We are happy you chose Patroneo. Patroneo is an easy-to-use sequencer, a program that sends digital "notes" to software instruments such as synthesizers and samplers.
Patroneo means "pattern" in Esperanto. The reason for this is that you don't put single notes in a row but build whole measures, which you can repeat - or leave out - at any place.
== How to use Patroneo
The following explains how to use Patroneo.
The program is almost exclusively operated with the mouse. You need three mouse buttons and a mouse wheel. Most of the time the mouse wheel itself is the middle mouse button, and you can press it down.
We encourage you to experiment a lot. Very often good music is created when users have not only used programs as it was intended.
=== Quick Start
To get to know the most important functions and workflows, this video has been created.

Patroneo (which is Esperanto for "Pattern") is an easy to use pattern based midi sequencer that
handles the three most important musical parameters: pitch, rhythm and dynamics.
Patroneo (which is Esperanto for "Pattern") is an easy to use, pattern based midi sequencer, a
program that sends digital "notes" to software instruments such as synthesizers and samplers.
Patroneo is primarily designed for educational purposes, where the main goal is to teach the
importance of patterns and repetitions in any kind of music. However, Patroneo is a full sequencer
you can use to create real music. The constraints it presents will more likely boost your
creativity than suppressing it.""" + "\n" + """
Workflow summary: You have tracks with one pattern each. Turn on steps in the pattern to play
creativity than suppressing it.
