Today I'm going to add an optional octave of re-pitch triggers which can be set to any amount, haven't figured out where to put them yet though!
Andy, there will always be an issue about how many keys someone has on their keyboard and whether they have to shift the range of their keyboard up or down an octave to reach other notes.
Since I think the majority of midi controllers are either 25 or 61 keys, it would make sense to me to target the 61 board as your basic available keys. The 25 keys is going to have to be doing a lot of shifting one way or another anyway.
For performance, I think you need to have those octaves next to each other ... you are still going to need a hand to trigger the keys for the sequences.
So I imagine two solutions. Place the pitch shifting on C0/ 24 up ... where it would be possible to trigger effects and pitch shift with the left hand while playing with the right; or, use 'key switching' where depressing B1/ 35 plus a key from C1 octave pitches up.
The first method makes it possible, if awkward depending on the size of someones hand, to have all the current triggers plus pitch shift. The second method would only permit one or the other at any given time.
From a musical sense, I think you need to retain 3 full octaves for melodic parts (disregarding shifting the notes inside the sequence). For that reason as well as the impracticability (unless using hold or latch) of changing both triggers and pitch at the same time, I don't think you should take the C4 octave away from sequence triggering.
