Nice new approach to the chord data!

While it definitely can be used to insert some rests in the chord, it could also be used to set the polyphony of a step, also used for the random-pick-from-pool feature, and now for polyphony values larger than 1! I don’t think however it can do both. Let me see:

chord-size == note-count: normal behavior.

chord-size > note-count: inserts one or more rests.

chord-size < note-count: this could be the polyphony indicator as well as well as the trigger for the random-pick-from-pool feature, but… there’s no way to specify rests now, and I want those in.

I really, really think the random-pick-from-pool with polyphony larger than 1 (random chords!) will be super cool, and you just found a really nice way to specify this. So my suggestion would be:

1. Use the 5-step button press cycle to set a note as on-1, on-2, on-3, rest, and off in the note circle.

2. Use your new chord-size approach to set polyphony between 1 and 7. If polyphony is smaller than number of notes+rests defined in the chord, the random-from-chord-pool feature is enabled for that step, with indicated polyphony.

Btw, the links from the email notification to the replaced threads are all broken.
