Sometimes, I find a nice sequence, such as a bassline, and then I want to continue playing the current sequence while switching patches.
There is a clever feature in Omnisphere 2 called Sound Lock
Sound Lock lets you lock specific parameters of a Patch and apply them to other Patches as you browse. You can use the FX section of a Patch, the Arpeggiator pattern of another one and the Modulation Matrix of a third one. This mix-and-match approach makes browsing a fun and creative experience.

ANd here is a demo of Sound Lock in action:
I’d really love for Arturia to adopt this kind of feature in MnF. At the very least, I’d like to be able to “audition” different patches for a given sequence.
My current workaround is to record the MIDI for the sequence into my DAW, and use it to control the MnF while switching samples. But the “Sound Lock” feature above would be a workflow game changer.
