A mode in which each row remembers its last placed sample or MIDI note. I know it goes against the Play’s concept of having total freedom of notes and samples in a row, but sometimes when experimenting with patterns it would be nice to have the possibility to place steps in a more traditional way - i.e. all steps placed in a certain row are kicks or snares. Such a mode would remove the need to constantly “pick up” existing sounds.
Experimenting with different instruments in a beat and switching between them requires a constant “picking up” of sounds by holding existing steps. Due to the lack of different colors in the steps it is easy to lose track of which sounds are on which step - or which instrument was last used in the “work step”.
A mode in which each row remembers its last placed sample or MIDI note so the user can quickly move between different instruments without having to constantly “pick up” existing sounds from the sequencer.
Any sequencer with sound-per-row functionality like the Synthstrom Deluge.
