Missing feature: playing the K37 without arping or sequencing

I answered the Arturia survey on K37 but the space to explain was scarce. Hence this post.

In my setup, K37 is the Master. It controls the Microfreak through midi, sends clock to Beatstep pro and Matrixbrute. The BST sends clock and midi (drumtrack) to Drumbrute (set to midi or clock). When I hit Play on K37 everything is in sync to K37 tempo-rate.

The problem: if I want to play a chord or notes on the K37 (controlling the Microfreak by midi), it will either be arped or sequenced.
As a workaround, I tried an empty sequence with Overdub but K37 does not send midi if the sequence is empty. :confused:
