It would be nice to have “Auto Capture Phrase” toggle button like in instrument box (Auto Capture Instrument).
What does ‘auto capture phrase’ option do exactly?
I suspect he wants a feature where putting the pattern cursor on a note, automatically selects the attached phrase for in the instrument panel.
If you have the instrument panel detached, there might be a good use in that idea. If it is attached, then it will not work out very great. (depending on if the area has to be made visible instantly)
Maybe he meant something more like: “Auto-select PHRASES by playing notes with the virtual piano or external MIDI.” The keyboard icon near samples.
I must admit that My main concern with this idea was laziness:
When i open and play a song of my freend that uses many phrases I can see which phrase is playing on the bottom of sampler (small rectangles) and just wanted automatic way to see phrase that is playing instead of selecting manual.
vV: good point when having multi monitor setup.
gova: also another good use case
P.S. I would see this as a toggle button on phrases toolbar.
