Simple rhythmic notation gate generator
Creates a gate using a simple rhythmic notation system called prop. When it reaches the end of the prop string, it will loop back to the beginning.
Prop has a few basic rules:
1. A '+' denotes a on. A '-' denotes an off (rest). They each have an equal duration of a quarter note.
2. On and off values can be strung together to create equally spaced gates: +-+--
3. When notes are enclosed in parantheses '()' following a positive integer N, their duration is reduced N times: ++2(+-)
4. When notes are enclosed in brackets '[]' following a positive integer N, their duration is scaled by a factor of N: ++2[++]
5. Parenthesis and brackets can be nested: +- 2[3(+2(++)+)]2(++)
