ATOM SQ: Add Block and Continuous Pad mode for any instrument inside Studio One

When using the Atom SQ as a normal controller outside of Studio One, there is an option to change the layout pad to KEYBOARD, CONTINUOUS and BLOCKS.

Weirdly, in Studio One, these options are restricted to what the instrument is and there is not even a BLOCK mode. I am using Addictive Drums 2 and you can't change the pad layout. Everything is grayed out on Atom's screen. When using a normal keyboard instrument, you can't use the continuous and block mode too. You're stuck with the piano style layouts only.

It would be great if we would have the ability to select whichever mode the pad does on any instrument inside Studio One: even the ability to use keyboard mode when using drum instruments. Some of us are more familiar using the keyboard when finger drumming.

I agree on block mode.   However Layout continuous/ Scale chromatic is the same as continuous on the non s1 instrument.  If you switch it to drum view you will have the colored pads as well  but they start at C1 with no transpose function.
