>>>>>>'One thing i would like to be able to do easily would be to freestyle on the slice or scale pads and be able to record that in as a new sample. I think the only way to do it is to record it as a sequence and then mute all the tracks , play the sequence back and resample to another pad.'<<<<<<
By this i mean that when in resample mode, at the point where you are recording into the sample edit screen, if you could then access all functions of the performance mode (not just the play sequence function). Like, the one pad you are sampling into is selected, but what if there was a stage after this, where the pad still stays selected as the assigned pad for the sample, but the rest of the pads are opened up for a freestyle input including the ribbon and FX?
I didnt mention before that motion sequence/automation stuff for the FX (like the Electribe) would also be good. So gestures could be programmed for each track or groups of tracks over a pattern, saved, and then different FX applied. This is quite a big limitation that would allow for greater progression of loops/sequences within a performance and expression for buildups to changes in scenes/patterns.
