Here is a firmware update file for Marbles implementing this new feature.

How does it work? A long press on the t or X DEJA VU buttons locks the random generation for this section – which will stop responding to the DEJA VU knob. When a section is in this “super locked” state, the illuminated push-button blinks rapidly. Press it to bring it back to normal.
What is the point? Allow subtle variations or permutations in the melody (by playing with the DEJA VU knob) while the rhythm remains constant… or vice-versa!
In other words, the t and X section can be in these 3 states:
- Illuminated push-button off: random without repetition (equivalent to DEJA VU set to the minimum).
- Illuminated push-button on: randomness amount controlled by the DEJA VU knob.
- Illuminated push-button rapidly blinking: loop without randomness (equivalent to DEJA VU locked to 12 o’clock).
