Thanks for your thoughts.
At the risk of saying what you imagined we would say, the first two items you mention are already on our list for possible future implementation, but it’s not possible to say exactly when they would be available.
I agree it would be nice not to stop the sequence when going into the setup menu, but I don’t know if it is possible. We’ve put most of the features we felt were critical to access ‘live’ during a sequence into one of the 4 menus you get when you press the shift keys. Is there some setting in particular that you find yourself wanting to change in the setup menu when a sequence is already playing?
Also – is there something in particular you are trying to do with CV’s that you are not able to? The CV In menu in particular is quite comprehensive – if something isn’t clear, maybe I can help you sort it out?
