Yes, this annoys me a bit. I wish you could set a default/snap back value so your CC is fixed at a certain value unless you place a step with a CC automation on it. So you automate a step with a specific value, then when Pyramid moves to the next step - with no step automation - the CC value snaps back to its default and you don’t have to place a second step to do it yourself. Elektron style p-locking.
My workaround is placing ‘default’ locks individually on every step and then automating the ones I want to mod individually. Problem is, you have to scroll back to the step note view to figure out where your note steps are, cos it looks like you have note step on every step…which is a bit annoying. And you have to reprogramme all the ‘non-steps’ if you want to change the ‘default’ value.
It’s that or use per note velocity in step note and map your velocity to another parameter through a mod matrix or CC translator. Which is fine, unless your velocity is doing something else like, I don’t know, modulating velocity or something.
Anyway, this is a little off topic so I will shut up now.
