Like, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge on different pattern slots in the order you want them to play. If that isnt song mode then I'm totally confused about what the term actually means.
So you are saying you have just a 1 bar pattern for the verse, one bar for the chorus etc?

That's a very simplistic and limited way of song structure. And you always have to use the patterns in the same order. Basically what the TR-8s has with the A-H knobs is an 8 bar pattern. 8 bars is not a song. It can be but then it is super basic.
