- Pattern creation in the AR plugin.
- Randomize patterns - and to be able to define randomization features/amounts.
- Drag & Drop patterns (MIDI) onto DAW timeline from a little icon in AR plugin.
I would love to be able to make patterns right in the AR plugin interface. Also, a little drag & drop MIDI pattern button on the AR plugin interface. This would behave similarly to the great drum synth plugin Microtonic. It's very nice to create a pattern(s) in the plugin, randomize some fills and variations for different parts of your song, and then drag and drop them onto Ableton's timeline.
Then, when you are done building a song in Ableton, you can always record these MIDI clips back onto the AR and take it to play live, jam, whatever.
I think lots of different workflows can be accommodated.
