is this possible with hydrogen? I know you can use the piano roll in
h2o to play the same sample with different pitches, but can you do it
externally, by sending notes on the alsa-midi in of h2o? I.e. can you
configure it such that incoming midi notes in the note range 60-65 say
trigger the same sample, with different pitch?
