Tables like LSDj's "Automate" Option
#1
In LSDj, there's an option called "automate" for tables. The table only advances a step when a note is played. So, you can have a syncopated or sparse pattern that's "automating" a table to advance to the next step in the table only when a note is playing.

For example:

(with - being no note and x being whatever note)

Pattern: | x - x x - x x - x - x x - x x - |

Table (transpose): | 0 C 0 7 0 3 FE | (hop to first step here)

would have the transposition of that pattern played through twice would be:

| 0 - C 0 - 7 0 - 3 - FE 0 - C 0 - | 7 - 0 3 - FE 0 - C - 0 7 - 0 3 - |

Here is me one-handedly trying to show this on LSDj: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Mz449OoOPY

Would it be possible to get a loop setting on the tables to just advance one step every time the table is called? I assume this is a big change, since it seems tables are running on their own timing and not really connected to the patterns, but this is a thing I tend to use a LOT in LSDj and would be really useful with, for example, using the MOD output to get repeating patterns that aren't really tied to a specific pattern length, but how often notes are played.

edit: Here's the only musical example I can find that I've still got from back in like 2007, the hardsync type synth starting around 33 seconds in is doing that: https://clyp.it/fd4qree5
