Color coded instruments by folder name

Ability to see the notes of a pattern color coded based on the folder they are in. For example, all kick samples are red and all hats are yellow. Customizing your own colors would also add a level of aesthetic individuality to your pattern visualizations.

What is the problem?

When you place many notes into the pattern, it becomes difficult to remember which one is which instrument.

What do you want to achieve?

The ability to at a glance see where the different instrument types are within a pattern.

Are there any workarounds?

You must manually preview a pad to hear or see what sample is loaded into it.

Any links to related discussions?

Any references to other products?


Just noting that there are other wishes about coloring pads:

Also, the problem of knowing which instruments are assigned to which pads is partially related to this other wish:

Not the same but related: in the Play+ MIDI/Synth mode, each of the three synths that can be used in the pattern has its own pad color, which makes them visually distinct between them and between pads with MIDI values, which are lighten up white/gray.

The Play+ marketing images capture this new feature.
