Has anybody actually found audio tracks usable ?
I am not talking about just simply recording to audio tracks (I haven't even tried that)
I am talking about simply loading some audio from the browser, and then trying to edit it ?
1 Live stretch doesn't actually work
2 You can change an audio items end point, but not its start point, and even then it is going to take ten times trying to edit the end point while the arranger scrolls back and forth (Same issues as selections in the audio editor)
3 Trying to make an accurate split with the scissors is a complete mess
1 Is a bug
2 BM3 needs bigger obvious grab points for starts and ends, be it sample editor/selections or item start ends in the arranger, infuriating is too simple a word for this, and not being able to adjust start point, i will assume is a bug.
3 The split/scissors is complete nonsense as is, nobody in their right mind would try to do an accurate split using a touchscreen and 6 billion different finger sizes, this should have been thought through a whole lot better.....
1 Turn on scissors
2 A vertical marker appears
3 You move the vertical marker to wherever you like
4 Long hold the vertical marker and a pop up box will appear with left and right arrows for single click sample accurate movement of said marker, hold arrow for faster scrolling
5 Press scissor icon and split is created, scissors mode turned off
While that method is light years of what we currently have (Albeit i may be missing a setting somewhere that makes the scissors usable) it is still not very accurate if we cant zoom vertically to see a good overview of the waveform, Yes you need a good vertical zoom to see accurate transient information, not with pinch (An absolutely horrible method of zooming that should be optional in all parts of BM3) but with +- buttons, +- for vertical +- for horizontal.
(note here, if zooming wasn't a pain, and moving start and end points wasn't a pain or didn't even exist, the scissors thing may not be so noticeable because you could fix by changing start/end points after the fact)
Pinch zooming should only ever be for vertical not horizontal anyway, Myself and most of the population of the planet are not contortionists and rotating our hands 90 degrees to pinch left to right is a complete joke, yes maybe it works on a phone where the phone can be rotated partially and the pinch fingers rotated partially, on an iPad, its a mess, between that and the selection, BM3 is becoming very very hard to use, close to giving up on it (OK exaggeration, but you get my teeth grinding/wanting to smash it off a wall/grrrr face)
