Esoteric, for sure, but nice! I've been racking my brain on a workaround using common pedals & existing algorithms. Maybe resonant delay 'drone' through a H910 / H949 or HarModulator. Dry signal split off and mixed in parallel. Foot control over Pitch Mix between static triad intervals. Perhaps an H9 providing the opposite-side inversions. How are you going about it manually?
I've seen that variable 'capture' /Quantize-type of feature in the Eclipse documentation. And you can see the results of a fixed pitch quantize in some of the PitchFactor Diatonic / QuadraVox scales. Check out Whole Tone at 100% wet for a prime example. So your proposed features are certainly possible. Intriguing take on an algorithm.
I'm doing it manually in the most old-fashioned way possible: playing the melody and the harmony note as doublestops. That gets tricky with some of the minor/major second fingerings, though, and it'll take quite a bit of practice to be able to improvise with it. It looks as though the diatonicshift 2 algorithm in the Eclipse could pull it off, if I'm reading the manual correctly, but you'd basically have to set up a preset with a unique user scale for each individual triad and harmony position, which would be pretty tedious. I'd much rather have someone else code it as a flexible algorithm. =)
