Sample per step


I think it would be a cool feature for the Deluge if a talented open source programmer could implement the sample locking per step feature like on the Digitakt, Novation Circuit, where you can have a different sample or sound per step on the grid from a pool of samples/sounds, I loved using the Digitakt for this, you can create some really interesting textures and patterns with this feature.

    Can't you do this already ?! Just import a bunch of samples as kit and play them per step.
    Or didn't you meant this ?

    Unless i've missed something? someone tell me differently as i'm still learning my way round the Deluge, you can't actually play a different sample per step on the deluge, regardless of how many samples you have in a kit, each single track in a kit corresponds to a single sample?
    On the Digitakt or Polyend Play for example, you can hold down a single or multiple steps on a track and assign a completely different sample on that step of the track, for example on say a track I use for the Kick Drum, I could add a hihat, fx, synth, any sample whatsoever on that single step, then assign some parameter locks, you can create great glitchy, textured patterns this way.

    Yes but on elektrons you only have one row per voice..
    What would be the point of loading different samples on a single row when they can be already displayed on adjacent ones?

    True, but there is something about selecting a step/s in a single track and flipping samples compared to the traditional programming of a drum per track, you can achieve interesting textures with samples you would not necessarily program in a traditional drumkit if you were able to select from a sample pool of mixed samples.

    This also works in tandem with the randomisation algorithm feature request I posted, imagine some of the crazy textured patterns you could create when using sample randomisation on selected steps of a track, this wouldn't work as it currently stands as each sample of a kit track would be randomised rather than just the sample of a single step of track.
