pattern + individual notes simultaneously

I'd like to be able to play patterns with the sequencer and then also be able to trigger individual notes. This way you could run a basic pattern and then add the incidental extra bass drum, snare roll, or crash cymbal (etc.) here and there manually.
Imho this would improve the Drumazon's usability a lot (especially for live/jamming situations), because it would speed up the workflow, as it eliminates the need to program every little bit of variation into the sequencer (tedious...) or writing the whole sequence in MIDI (tedious and inflexible).
Not sure how it could best be implemented though...
Perhaps adding triggers for individual notes on MIDI notes C-0 to A#0 (= directly below the pattern triggers), in same configuration as C-2 to A#2 with internal sequencer off (but transposed down 2 octaves).
Perhaps adding triggers for individual notes on MIDI notes C-9 to D#10 (= directly above the pattern triggers), in same configuration as C-3 to D#4 with internal sequencer off (standard MIDI but transposed up 6 octaves).
Or use different MIDI channels" one for triggering patterns, another for triggering individual notes.
