  • x0x/grid sequencing with the touchscreen

    While the PADS mode in the SEQS editor is useful for inputting notes across multiple instruments, it can be a bit tedious, especially if you're only sequencing one pad/sound at a time.

    An alternative sequence input method could be a 4x4 touchscreen grid (16 steps) that allows you to input note triggers, one sample pad at a time, by tapping the squares on the display. A 4/4 kick beat would be achieved by tapping all four squares in the left most column, for example.

    Blackbox could offer excellent fine tune sequencing in this mode. Tap and hold an individual step on the screen, then turn one of the four knobs to edit pitch, gate length, velocity, and maybe a fancy trick like retriggering, probability, or microtiming!

    If you modeled the 5x5 grid of the other modes, then you have additional space for buttons to switch between pads, switch between sequences, or tab through more pages of 16 steps if the sequence is longer.

    That's a great idea !
    I would be more for a Tracker type of SEQ view personally.
    Would allow fine sequencing or correcting sequences easily.
    And it would be so cool looking at it running like a tracker

      This is brilliant and would be an amazing jump in functionality
