Multi sample mode
What about a third (or inbetween) mode - that incorporates the sample-per-note function of the kit track, but also uses some of the synth mode functions - reproducing effects like attack and release for every note, allowing keyboard mode etc.
I've recently tried out putting a 40 or so key piano into a kit track, note by note, and then learning each note to a midi keyboard.
Happy to say this works great and I now have a piano that's pretty good! But it's a lot of work changing each sample to cut mode, adding the same release time on each one, etc etc. A mode like this could speed up working with multi samples.
Is there enough RAM to make this worthwhile do you think?
