Triggerpad Device

I use pad midi controllers a lot, and now that we can map the pattern matrix to pads, it makes sense to wonder why we don’t have a pad control device in Renoise properly. As in a device with 8+ “pads”, each of which can be toggled or held, each of which has its own target parameter and its own on/off set of values.

For instance, a pad, when held, could send its on-value to the cutoff of a filter. When released, it sends its off-value to the cutoff.

I’m not actually thinking about MIDI here (since that need is already catered to), but more, like the XY device, a keyboard/mouse oriented controller utility. Given keyboard focus, qwerty etc could trigger the pads alongside mouse clicks.
