first, the concept:
Normally, synths need a note on to start and a note off to stop generating sound. (Some can be configured to auto-noteoff after a certain time, but not all).
A note off not only means the sound stopping, but also means a way of stopping it. Most synths have a "sustain volume" and "release time" parameters, which determine at which volume it stays before pressing note-off, and how time it takes to fadeout the sound after a note-off. You usually can configure the value of filters and other parameters after note-off.
Now, knowing that it needs it and what it offers, the thing is easy, you need to noteoff the note you've activated, and to do so, you put it in the same track.
There's no problem to put all note-offs at the first pattern, because if there's nothing to note-off, nothing wil be.
Hope this helps you to use Psycle better.
Edit: Not sure if you've fully understood ksn's comment. To enter a note-off, you have to press the key "1" that is over the Q (not the numerical pad). This is the default value for this key, since Psycle allows you to customize the keyboard layout.
Finally, you have to press this key on the first column of the track, just where you put the notes.
