OK.  So this is how you might “do” this in pseudo code.  If it makes sense, it seems simple to implement.

What’s needed is a way to Bypass the 0 Note moving around so the intervals play the same notes over and over.

I assume there’s a register variable that is always keeping track of the 0 note#.  And when you press an interval key, like +3, you update the variable to +3 and then play it.

How about you had an IF some_controller statement that skips assigning the new root?   So 0 doesn’t change so +3, +5, +7… would always be the same notes as long as you held down the controller.

So assuming the scale is Cmaj and you pressed CC, you’d always have

0 = C, +3  = E, and +5 = G.

In this way you could assign a midi drum pad to the interval keys but be able to play the same note.  Let up the CC pedal and misha would function as normal and move around the chosen scale.

So you could press CC and jam on a CMaj scale for a measure, then let up the CC, hit the pad associated with +3, press CC again and jam on Emaj for a measure, and so on.

You’d just need to pick a CC.  It would be nice if you could setup a toggle option to set how you want the special CC to work, either as default or with CC.

The end result would be an easy way to jam on any scale in Misha and easily make music using a few drum pads!  It would be somewhat analogous to a guitar player fretting a chord but being able to strum and pick notes independently.

Tie it into the Tone Row sequencer and you could start to piece together song structures too
