My #1 wish for SunVox: Record into existing pattern

I realize SunVox and trackers are sort of set up for entering data with a keyboard, and "programming" songs, however I think being able to record live playing and record live automation into a preexisting pattern of a fixed length would be a HUGE step forward for SunVox.


-create a new empty pattern of 64 beats
-enter some notes and other data (current way to use SunVox)
-hit record (maybe have a specific "Record into selected pattern" button)
-listen to looping pattern and add notes (maybe even have an option to delete)
-keep listening and add parameter changes (filter sweeps, or other automation movements)
-and so on and so forth

This would be a great way to work with patterns, and create variations of patterns, without having to trim anything.

Maybe you don't want to take SunVox this direction, but I for one think it would be a really nice addition without compromising the spirit of SunVox, because after all you could keep the old way of creating patterns. This would just be an addition.

I hope to see it someday soon! :D

For notes you could also toggle the record to either replace notes on a line where previous existing notes were overwritten, or add to notes on a line so that previously existing notes remained.
