On the 201, currently the Shift key is used to stop recording a sequence and immediately play.
This creates limitations: nothing can be recorded in the sequence that requires a Shift.
This is particularly limiting when trying to record a passage that may extend beyond the physical keyboard: shift is required to change octaves. It would improve the sequencer if octaves could be changed during recording (particularly for percussion!) It would also be nice to operate the sequencer with a slow tempo during recording and insert program changes to jump/weave other patches into the sequence.
Could the role of the Shift key be changed, such that if recording, Shift + o/# is used to stop and immediately play? (Where o/# is the current sequencer toggle key.) While I realize that hitting shift by itself is fast and immediate, from a control standpoint it doesn’t make sense that Shift has an executable function, beyond being a function key to be used in tandem with something else.
