When in MIDI mode, the Sample Start knob functions as a chord selector for a selected step. To change inversion of the chosen chord, the user has to hold the Shift button while dialing the same knob.
The proposal is to present chord inversion as the second parameter of the said knob instead of forcing the user to hold Shift. That would fit Play’s paradigm better as all other parameters work the same way. Also that would make a better use of the display. The upper part would show a chosen chord and the bottom part would show the chord’s inversion.
Current workflow isn’t convenient and doesn’t quite fit overall Play’s paradigm.
Hold step & adjust workflow is overly complicated, and even not possible for most steps pads, as it requires three hands to be involved: one to hold a step, the second to hold Shift and the third to turn the knob
Easier access to chord inversions.
