That will probably make more sense once I have a Plaits in hand to try it out.
Right now it looks like a stand-alone patch, like you would have this running and that would monopolize the ES-8 for the most part. This is a great showpiece and I like the idea but I’d be interested in stripping it down to the core elements.
Like How about a module that can easily set the drum type and associated parameters? Then you could use other sequencers to control that. At the very least, making such a module would simplify the internal design of the MIPDM.
Per step FX is a great idea for a stand alone module as well. I could see lots of other uses for it
