@JCFAX81 can you (or anyone else) explain a bit what are you expecting from a “melodic fill generator”? Is this just about generating random notes in more tracks or something more? I mean, there are apps and plugins out there that make a business out of creating melodies for you. I guess you are not asking for that, but it would be good to set some basic expectations.
Just yesterday a workaround was mentioned in a another topic:

Yeah but with Play being a groovebox, a user shouldn’t have to break flow, to open a laptop->Daw->vst plugin, to generate an idea just so they can use in Play, I would say those plugins are mainly directed for Daw use.
I think what is being expressed here is a feature to maybe assist in creating more musical sounding single track riffs/melodies, as the Play is monophonic there is no current feature to input or record directly chords or more than one single note per step, unless the user has imported these pre-created samples elsewhere, it would maybe be helpful to be able to maybe record this and save it as a new sample in the project directly?
Some additional wishlist proposals I am going to add are for an arpeggiator which would allow a user to hold chord notes on the keyboard and Play record these notes one by one onto a tracks subsequent steps with different note order modes being selectable on the arp.
A chord mode for audio samples, similar to what is currently available for midi tracks and finally asking if the full 16x8 grid can be used a keyboard, when a scale and key is selected, the keyboard would highlight root notes and display notes in that selected scale and key.
