Recording MIDI in a buffer?

Hi, i’m starting some new project and some brainstorming could be useful.. i’d like to store some MIDI values into a buffer and then spit them out respecting the original temporal order (or scrambling it starting form a different point).
It is the same to the audio case in which i continously record 4 measures in loop into a buffer and then play them back. In the middle of course i do some modification.
Which could be a good object to use to store the midi notes (and maybe visulize them)?

To store MIDI data i usually use a [coll] so i can store a few other pieces of data along with Notes/CCs like velocity, duration, length, delta time… If you just want note values you can use something simple like a [table], [multislider], or a [matrix control]…

Seq would be great bt i’d like to read the values while recording and i cannot. I’d like to have something like a circular recorder, from which i can read the data in various orders. Is there a way of doing that with seq? I though one possibility is using two seqs one writing down the data after recording (text file or something) and the other reading data for playing. But it’s really ugly…
for MikEyhaTsis I’ll check coll, i’ve never used it
