Couldn´t you basically flip the track editor, so to get more of a “pianoroll”/analog sequencer editor?

Would look cooler…
Like this, except with above.
And the old arpeggio could be converted into chords, with one filter. Filterboxes are popular for this!
Would look more like sequencers seen used by known artists
Also avoiding the Obarskian association, as it looks more like common sequencers.
Tracker music with proper master, is much like mainstream version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtcWmG0Zpiw
I do notice you have a layout that really says “we want this”, lol.
This + polyphase interpolation (amiga variable dac sound + alias filter) would be good.
(polyphase + RMS 4band master)
