Hey fxpansion

Triplets need to be integrated within a straight pattern. It's just bad implementation, the workarounds are unworkable, forums users are suggesting using the daw instead, which is one step away from leaving geist sequencer altogether.

Another workaround for programming 1/8T alongside 1/16 is to slow the note length down to 1/4 and use the 'repeat' function to switch between 1/8, /16, 1/8T, 1/16T divisions. But each division has to run for an entire quarter note duration, which means fast short duration division edits aren't possible

Triplet within straight patterns are part of mainstream rhythm programming nowadays. Its not niche, you hear chart tracks doing it all the time . The FR has been around since 2010. This just needs to be do-able.
