Add a 'Custom Color Picker' for Track Colors

I often run out of colors when colouring tracks in S1. I would like to be able to pick colors with this tool (OSX, but surely Windows has this box as well):

This would come in very handy for changing the colors for different instruments within a group. For instance: I want all strings in my session to be green. But I would still like to be able to distinguish the violas from the violins and the celli within the green 'strings' group. With this eyedropper tool I'd be able to slightly change the green tones for each instrument.

I'm fond of Logic's colour picker; it tends to group colours together in a sensible way. Having the ability to not only have those similar colours grouped together tidily but having a custom colour option would be fantastic.

I would also like this feature. The way Peter describes above how he would like to work is EXACTLY how I would like to work as well.

I would definitely prefer having fully customizable colors rather than simply a better organized or expanded palette with no user control.

The Studio One color palette is very limited and arbitrary, and consists almost exclusively of unappealing colors that clash with each other. There are maybe 5 usable colors that don't harsh my vibe.
