thanks, that is a very intriguing idea, which would allow on-the-fly melodic replacements, a feature that would be suited great for LoopA. Probably the note replacements would need to be defined relative to the root note in semitone intervals?
For example - in C Major, your replacement example C->E, D->F would have this replacement table?
0 (C, currently active FTS scale root note) -> +4 halftones (remapped to E)
2 (D, +2 halftones over currently active root note) -> +3 halftones (remapped to F)
Would force-to-scale be applied before or after note remapping? I guess it should be active after remapping, to make sure we stay in scale, but just asking 🙂.
That’s very cool, Mr. Duringer was pioneering with that idea quite early, i did not know about it! The MatriX keyboard mode in SEQ v4+ mode is quite similar, its layout is chromatic (in contrast to LoopAs isomorphic layout) and maps the different vertical key positions to different velocities - it would be possible to map to different output instruments instead.
Both of you: thanks a lot for your suggestions - i’ll meet up with Andy in the next days and discuss with him.
