"Keys" by fourths
I am a new user of Beatmaker 3, and it is an excellent piece of software.
What would make it even better would be the ability to have the rows of the 8x8 pad tuned according to fourths - for example: 1st (leftmost) pad on the bottom row is E, 1st (leftmost) pad on the 2nd row is A, 1st (leftmost) pad on the 3rd row i D, and so on. Each row would have pads tuned to semitone intervals. The overall tuning would resemble guitars and bass guitars.
This seems like a quick win that maybe can be simply implemented as a "scale". It would give the opportunity to play chords and solos a lot easier than what is currently possible.
