Wish: A keyboard

edited July 2008 in General

First let me say that I really like this app, it's plain awesome. What I'm missing though is a piano keyboard e.g. to play piano/organ/clavinova samples. I would love to be able to play samples pitched to the tone of a specific key. Preferably you have different piano samples for different scales because a low piano tone is a lot different from a high. But I could definitely live with one sample for the full scale, for sketching purposes this is quite all right.

I like how they created the piano in the app 'Band' but 'Band' a poor app compared to this one. I can imagine that besides the keyboard you have a scale up and down key to switch during recording.

Hope this can be realized, regards, Jan

    both band and pianist are made by the same person, yet for some reason he did a much better keyboard for the piano-only one.

    but I agree, a keyboard would be awesome. you should be able to have keyboard as part of your kit, then you can switch between keyboard kits and pad kits separately. well, a kid can dream, cant he?
  • Yes please, some way of doing melodies is all I need now.

    Yes, I agree with these other fellows a key board would make a excellent addition I have a strong feeling it's in the works somewhere at Intua
    it would certainly boost the power and capabilities of this program.

    I guess saving the parts of a song to .wav making them a kit add your bass patern in a loop or melody part then pitch to different pads. If you put the whole pattern on one pad you could then use the other 15 pads to do notes.

    A piano would be nice but you can actually play more "keys" in the pad configuration as the in the programs I have seen don't have that many keys across. Since I usally record the melody notes as a group I have a lot less than 15 key changes in a song.

    Beatmaker you are wonderful. I am getting more happening stuff going as I go through the learning curve. But the way things are set up all make sence and there is not a lot of lag on anything.
