If you hit the step sequencer button and go to melodic mode is there any way to change the actual notes entry from just being scales to something like note mode (i.e. chords or progressions)? I haven't found a way yet - seems like an oversight to not have step sequencer the same input abilities as note mode.

have you noticed that if you're in step seq mode and you select a fixed velocity, that velocity remains if you go back to note mode..

Confused me at first. Not a good feature IMO. I'd prefer if it defaulted back to "as played" in not mode.

Thoughts?
