If you have a mk2 analog four or rytm they have performance knobs that can be used similar to the OT crossfader. The digitwins have control all, which when applied the filter cutoff usually does the trick.
Just change patterns. Lots of music is “jumpy”. Put a crash cymbal (or similar splashy synth) on step 1 with a “1st” trig condition.
Of course, you can go wild will also sorts of musical creativity for transitions, but if you’re struggling, the first step is just to do it, regardless of consequences. Also, remember it’s not a “trick”, it’s jist a different part of a track: a phrase or energy level. If you can hit mutes and twist filters for a “verse” or “beat”, then you can also introduce a change for a “transition”. It’s just music. Copy the main pattern to a new slot, and edit it to have new flavour.
modulate to a new key (up a 2nd, to the minor 3rd, up to the 4th), just for a bar
one bar of just the drums
take the whole of the first beat or half beat, across every track, and repeat it on each beat/half beat (like if you had a sample of the track and stuttered it). For bonus points, fade out, or filter sweep
let the first step of each track play into a delay and reverb
drop the drums, ad a riser
take out all the melody and add a single track of a new melody, or some speech
samples just for a bar or two
add the drums from the next track (maybe cut most of the drums from the current track)
put everything through a comb filter
put everything through a bandpass filter + bit crusher
epic snare roll over the first beat of the baseline repeated
replace all the chromatic instruments with your own voice recorded in your bathroom, for one bar
For DT/DN, Control All can get some good things going. Control All the reverb and delay over a few bars and build it up so it is in outer space and out of control, and maybe increase the drive to make it dirty. People will be wondering what kind of Willy Wonka world they are in, and whether or not they should have skipped lunch. Then pop on the next pattern and it is like starting fresh on a new days sun. Lots of cool things you can do with Control All.
Another left-field one on AR/A4: Stay on the current pattern, but change the KIT of your current pattern to the one of the pattern you want to move to. This will transition SOUNDS first instead of the rytmic/melodic pattern. Had quite a few happy accidents doing that when improsiving, it works great if your kits are structured in a similar same way (ex: always have the bass on the 4th track on A4).
