Squid sequencing TR 909

Hi, I would like to sequence my 909 with the Squid. It looks like I have to use almost all tracks for this. Is it planned to implement a lot of more tracks so that sequencing drum sounds is more conftable? I would prefere not using the internal 909 sequencer caus I would like to play the sounds dynamically over midi.

Looking forward to hear good news.

You don't have to use 12 tracks to sequence the 909.  You can use patterns for this.   Each pattern trigger can contain up to 8 notes.  For instance, on trigger pad 1, I have a kick and a high hat layered.  C2 for the kick and F#2 for the closed hat.  

Ensure the note is activated on the trigger.  When holding the pad, 8 small boxes appear, white boxes mean the note is active.  

Another way to solve this is to program your drums within a DAW and drag and drop them.

Manually entering each note and velocity individually on each step every single time you want to create a drum pattern is not acceptable. There needs to be a "drum" mode that allows you to assign a note to a pad ahead of time so you can enter notes and velocities by just striking a pad and having all of the info contained within the single track. Modes should be Note/Drum or Mono/Poly/Drum, etc with the Drum mode allowing you to assign notes to pads and then save that set of instruments as a template so you don't have to recreate the same thing over and over again for every single pattern.
