I wish there was a Note FX device that plays back a note clip that’s stored inside it.
One would craft the note clip in a regular manner, and then drag-and-drop it into the device. The device would respond to any input note with simply playing back the note clip while the gate is open.
The use case I have in mind is that I could fill a Drum Machine with such note clip devices, a kind of a melody or rhythm bank triggerable with a single key. I currently do a primitive version of this with Arpeggiator devices loaded into the drum machine slots, but they’re obviously very limited compared to full clips with operators and all, and polyphony is a PITA.
I know it’s not nearly as simple as it sounds and a proper specification would take pages, but I think you get the idea. What do you think?
