Performance track mask:
Hold shift to designate track(s) for step editing. While holding shift, tracks with a yellow LED can be edited in the performance track.
Will work similarly to track selection within the FX and master/transpose tracks.
The track will function exactly as it does now when all tracks are selected with a yellow led while holding shift. When deselecting tracks from the performance channel, their sequencer data is no longer shown and leds disappear from grid. New notes added to the sequencer or recorded live will not affect deselected channels. Notes recorded to deselected channels will still be heard while the performance track is unmuted.
I presently only find myself using the performance track to delete poor takes of something I recorded while holding shift on an individual instrument track. Data from all tracks is shared on the grid steps, so editing or deleting with precision is not possible. A poor punch in recording could force you to delete and re-record several other good takes that share the channel. It is also laborious to switch from instrument tracks to the performance track in the case of deleting or editing a recorded take.
Bonus: Performance track parameters
Amount Speed Division Range
The first two parameters, Amount and Speed, are applied to the timbral punch-in effects: filter, stereo, short, long.
Division is applied to the grid timing based punch in effects: loop 1, loop 2, follow/echo
Range is applied to the tonal punch-in effects: pitch, ramp up, ramp down, and random.
All encoder parameters can be recorded to the grid sequencer on selected tracks within the performance track.
Also: now I want step components on top of all that.
