how about pressing the active pattern playing in any track to stop it from playing instead of needing to press an empty pattern for silence?
I’ve had the Hapax as my main sequencer for almost a year now, and I still try to stop patterns the way you describe. It happens subconsciously a few times per session.
Also, with the way it is atm, you basically need to waste one pattern for silence.
It would also be amazing to run multiple patterns at once for a single track.
But I believe most of this is covered in earlier threads, such as this one.
