i´m not a friend of this synth-drums. but i like the optic and its simple, clear, fast gui and ergonomic-concept.
that should be adapted.
i would love a clear and simplify, but also ergonomic-advanced geist. a hybrid of geist and tremor, a treist.
have the tremor gui in mind to understand what i´m in the following saying:
i dont need this pseudo host features, so i wish only one engine, no song/scene-modus, etc.
i dont need this mpc-stuff.
in the down area we have 4 views: Master, Sends, Kit and Pad.
take the most of the tremor gui: replace the space-wasting pad-matrix with a functionally view of pad-mixer, similar the kit view in tremor.
i can further trigger the "pads" by click into a dedicated area beside the mute/solo. the advanced functions like repeat, erase... should be selectabel evreywhere where in tremor the post-mix-chanel is.
well, there should be 16 instead 8 "channels, so maybe u have to minimize the level-meter and we could place two slots under each other, for example its not necsarry to label level and pan and output und preset, is it? and the preset/sample prev/next and selector arrows could be directly beside the slot-label.
but under all circumstances hold this "preset" prev/next button on the seperat chanels!!!!! (well with multi-layers i have to set the fokuss which sample is ascociated with this prev/next (and automatically open in browser) (per default #1).
that really speeden up.
from this kit-mixer-view i come (analog to synth-view in tremor) to a dedicated pad view. there is now enough space to combine the pad/layer and pad-mixer into one view.
the sends view is similar to the kit view, except that the macros replaced with the sends and the fx-sections shows the send-fx. evrywhere should be a selector for the aux.
and finaly the global mixer replace the track-slots with the send-slots and on the right side we could see all 6 send fx at once or all 6 master fx.
the upper area should be divided into browser, mapping and pattern A,B and full. and a view for all this manage and option-stuff which i have forget;) eg. here i can adjuts what happens by track-next/prev, sample (which one) or pad, with or without replace of fx, and so on).
browser and mapping is selfexplainend. and pattern A means chanels 1-8, B = 9-16 and full is a uses the complet area, overplacing the kit/and other views below.
hold all this advancend seqeuncer-features from geist, like the graphs, multitool, insert-lines.....
btw: give us the abaility to make our own inserts which also include shift, velocity... parameters and to label them.
( an other shortcut than simultan left/right-click to round-robin the lines would be nice (the MM is unable to do this:(
put the option to creat shortcuts and to save and load routings on the top, give them a fair upgrade price and that think would be the groovebox i allways wished to own.
