Quickly toggle parameters

To enable a semi performance-like workflow in the pattern programming / sequencer mode, it would be nice to have the ability to quickly toggle parameters like Repeat on and off.

What is the problem?

The performance mode options are somewhat limited, and in the pattern/sequencing mode, it’s impractical to scroll the parameters back and forth to the “Off” position when wanting to trigger impromptu parameter changes like snare rolls.

What do you want to achieve?

For example, it would be great to do impromptu snare rolls using Repeat.

It appears that the Shift+Main parameter button combination doesn’t currently do anything, maybe that could be used to toggle the parameters on/off? Or, maybe it would be possible to use the Main encoder push button + Main parameter button to momentarily disable the parameter / reset the parameter to default?

Are there any workarounds?

There are currently no other workarounds besides trying to scroll to the off/default position super fast, which leads to a lackluster effect. An alternative is of course to program the desired parameter states on the individual steps in the pattern, but that does not enable an ad-hoc or semi performance experience.

As a workaround, what about programming variations applying the desired effects not available in Performance mode?

@james Thanks for your contribution. Unfortunately, the current product design does not allow for this wish.
