there is no way to run an user proc while in performance mode. Imo, this
would add much complexity to the sequencer, make it slower and less robust
in perf. mode.

i'm planning to add configurable hooks that will make possible to run
builtin functions while in song{idle,play,record}. There will be functions
to ask for info, to switch between filters, to mute tracks etc... It should
be possible to trigger them by sending midi events etc... but it isn't
ready yet

loops/patterns are on my todo list; but there other missing features
that are pressing (undo/redo, user events/hooks etc..)

thank you for the freedback,
