Let me prelude my request by saying there is a vast amount of fun, potential for live performance tricks, and transition ability in the direct change feature. Just a lot of fun there. Holding down the button and playing the sequencer buttons like a keyboard triggering each scene immediately from the beginning. Just a blast. Well done, Elektron!
Now for the request. I think it would be awesome for the Analog series to couple this ability with a greater ease by holding, I don't know, potentially "YES+pattern bank" and the pattern bank stays open and you can, with the utmost ease, trigger patterns as though you were playing a monophonic. Wouldn't that be cool? I think that would be cool. And if you had the A4 being controlled by the AR it folllows the selected pattern sequence. REALLY cool. My cover of "My Milkshake Brings All The Boys to the Yard" could FINALLY be complete!
And I want to end this request by thanking the fine people at Elektron for this excellent device. I'm embarrassed to say that I considered selling it. It's like dub techno in a box. And I love dub techno. I'm sure you could hit other genres with it. But I love that it's got that DEEP, SPACE, and DEEP SPACE in it. Really cool. And I've got my finger on the trigger for that junkyard soundpack, because who doesn't love noise.
Thanks and godspeed, Elektron!
