Way of selecting + choosing AU/IAA instrument directly from SONG/SCENES/PATTERN PAGE
edited August 2017 in Feature Requests
Please can you make it so we can easily browse and choose an AU or IAA instrument for a track from the SONG/SCENES/PATTERN PAGE. Having to flip between pages just to add an instrument to a track is not good for workflow.
There is currently a drop-down menu "Load Bank" in the mixer and bank page but not session. I think much thought needs to go into making selection of an instrument as straight forward as - say - Gadget. Wherever one happens to be. Currently I just feel there's too much need for flipping around.
This app has a lot of unnecessary tapping to get even simple tasks done. I hope the UI can be simplified or rearranged to make our workflows more intuitive.
So this request is for AU/IAA instrument tracks ?
It would currently be a struggle to implement a "load AU/IAA" command directly in to the Song/Scene/Pattern page (Arranger), how would it know which pad to load it to ?
There is already a load bank command in the Arranger, just long press the banks letter on the track.
That's cool, I didn't know that, thanks!
Yeah there are a few long press locations that people miss.
I will try to do a quick video when i get chance.
I realise there are long-press locations that bring up a menu for LOAD BANK but that is till too cumbersome. There just needs to be a button to select a plugin or click on the plugin icon in order to bring it up directly.
Or at the lease a SEPERATE menu in the bank menu - "LOAD/EDIT PLUGIN" would help. Better still would just be to place an icon of the synth app/AU somewhere near the track in question to bring up the plugin editor.
As in many other apps - a single "click" should bring up the editor for the instrument on a track. Or to change it or load one. Currently theres still too many steps.
I also wish the "select song/create new" dialog could be optional and switched off.
You can actually load 128 plug-ins per bank if needed...
By default 'keys' mode is selected when you drag a plug-in to the bank. Tap the keys / (up right) and you'll the other pads.
They haven’t heard us yet, here’s hoping they do
