Track view: Step color reflects velocity not pitch


I want to see velocity without looking up the value.
Steps are colored based on their pitch. 64 RGB values are used to fill 128 slots. Pitch coloring looks nice. But it doesnt give me much information.

A configuration option or a shortcut to switch between pitch mode and velocity mode would be cool.
In velocity mode all notes are colored based on their velocity value, cool if shift&up/down for changing the base color would still work. A bit different for Kit Track view but i guess i could work the same.

    Personally I think track colouring should be monochrome, there's a thread on this somewhere. The multicoloured thing is pretty but it's confusing as hell in the arranger.

    However, if it were possible (in track view) to indicate velocity by brightness or something I agree that that would be much more useful than using the colour of the pad to indicate pitch. You know when a note is a different pitch as it's on a different row - you have no indication of the current velocity.

    i agree with both posts. though i wouldn’t need an option for the current behavior “pitch mode“. don’t see any advantage (in terms of overview) why different pitches are colored differently.

    in song mode each track should have a monochrome color, and in track mode this color should be bright or dark depending on velocity.

    yes, monochrome tracks in Song and Arranger mode are much better.
    cool if we had step coloring for params too. in Sound Edit mode or when moving a knob colors reflect param values. so we had a way yo quickly check which params have automation.
