Note Preview for piano roll

Note preview - when we add notes in the piano roll. When pressing pad, should play “note” as long as it is being held, based on the note length/sample end. See other sequencers such as deluge for this.

What is the problem?

Can’t hear note when entering on piano roll

What do you want to achieve?

To be able to hear the note when you enter it in on piano roll

Are there any workarounds?

Yes you can add note, then hold and turn note knob to hear preview. But this is when you change the note.
Also you can hold knob and press note after it’s been added

Any links to related discussions?

Any references to other products?

Deluge operates this way.

Yes! I second this. I love the new firmware update but I think it really is vital to be able to hear the notes you’re inputting as you go, within piano roll.

Also - not a huge deal but - in regards to midi tracks, it would be nice if you could see on the piano roll, the notes that are being triggered if you happen to be playing with an external midi keyboard. This already occurs when you’re in midi track mode and viewing the regular piano key mode (the 4 columns to the right light up with the notes you’re playing on a midi controller). Nice for when you’re playing chords or a melody on the keyboard and then you want to put it into the sequencer and have a quick reference of where the notes are being lit up in piano roll.

Love this idea and also was one that felt this was missing. May I suggest having this as a Setting in the Options menu that could be toggled on or off globally? For live playing, can be very convenient to not have the note preview.

Agree. I don’t want my note placements sounding while I’m performing but if I’m just writing/building it seems like a great idea to have!

+1 agree 100% I had assumed that but did not describe in the request. But yes if they do this must be an option, same as the other preview works.

Very good idea, and I would predict easy to implement.
Would make piano roll so much more fun and useful.
Hopefully we’ll see this in next firmware!
