BUGZ\'n\'Questions + Ideas
1> if your song has used 80 patterns but some were removed from it, when you double click on a 00 pattern or insert a new pattern, it makes pattern 81 and so on all of which are coverd in garbled nonsense characters.
1.5> following from that i use far more than 80 patterns per song, or would like to. Can you up the limit please ?
2> if you do not press ok after loading song when it brings up the dialogue box, and go to another window or the desktop, the song doesn't load if you go back in and click ok.
3> 02/01 command pitch up/down - i reported error previously when using it on synths, this is not the end of the problem, repeatedly playing a track with lots of 02 and 01 commands on a sampler will yield an altering pitch shift, its ok when you play song, mostly.
4> why does loop tuner only do forward, blue wizard need ping pong,.. badly.
5> LFO Timing, still unusable because i can't tell it to start on note start.
8> delays still suffer from inaccurate timing due to lack of options to set exact value, slider is just no cigar.
IDEAs - possibly psycle 2 stuff, figure alot won't fit current code engine.
1> Why not seperate tracks into control tracks and note trigger tracks.
2> i really think it would be a bonus to add a new type of wire that causes a note trigger adressed to either machine to trigger both you could very simply build complex sounds rather than having to write them in seperately and then listen again and again.
3> Just imagine holding control and dragging a note on a track to fine delay/prelay it, graphical would be the best but even now you could make write in appropriate tweaks next to the note.
4> In far future, what about graphical note track displays with quantised positioning, fine prelay/delay diplayed as lines on a black track with faint markings every 4 etc and then having the option to overlay the waveform including effects
5>also far future, vertical line graph tracks to display panning or volume and using left to right as amptitude.
you'd really see what your song is doing that way.
5.5> graphs should be click and dragable and have options for inverse/exponential curves.
6> i think you should standardise the synth parts used and have a reaktor ( Native instruments ) style machine bay. Just make seperate oscillators and modulaters and so that you put inside a machine unit to form it. People could be making new machines all the time. Or would thar slow it all down to much.
7> What is pulse and ramp etc as waveforms, can we have them in aguru synths, i like using aguru synths.
8> This may be a little insane, but how about having a write multi sample funtionality for synths with or without effects, saving on speed and allowing Idea number 9
9> that being the ability 09xx command a synth sound.
Whats wrong with preset tweaking, is it just ill fitted to code at moment or do you have other plans ?
Thanks, i mean really thanks,
Since i started using your program my music is thriving, in a couple of months i probably have my first few songs done. I love trackers. and i think with some work on the interface that they take over the world.
