[Feature Request] Separate use of synth and control modules

Hello everyone, I’d like to share an idea of a killer feature I’ve been wishing ever since I started using MicroFreak as an external midi/cv controller (and supposedly not only me :upside_down_face: ) . I do wish there was a way to disable keyboard and arp/seq control for the synth module itself, while still being able to control the synth externally and being able to use the control module with my other gear. This became especially relevant, when I got my first analog synth and wanted to control it with the PCB keyboard without triggering MicroFreak.

I see it as a subsection of the Preset menu, something like ‘keyboard on/off’ switch. When set to ‘off’ the synth can receive MIDI messages via MIDI-in, but not triggered by arp/seq/keys, while external gear can still be manipulated via MIDI-out and/or CV/Gate.
