(Sorry but I do not see the rationale.. What is the way you guys compose of, in order for needing such a device as a native functioning? (like it is, in FL studio for example - but why could it not be accomplished by easy workarounds?)
to me it's not about not being accomplishable, but ease of experimentation: setting up a send track to do this, to find out it doesn't sound good, takes way more time than giving the dry/wet a little nudge. (I guess I'm not so much speaking about a dry/wet device but "dry/wet for all fx" here)
and what if you have 5 (10, 20) fx in a chain where you want that? several of such tracks.. a send track for each effect?!
this is fine if you're building something specificially, but when "just" composing experimenting, it's just not an option IMHO: the fact that you would need to use a send device and a send channel just to check out how a certain effect sounds mixed with a bit of dry..... means that you *never* do that, unless you already know what you're looking for
and yeah, I do agree that if you know what you're looking for, even 50 send tracks are not too much, they can be named and colored after all... but for tweaking sliders to find a sound you like, it'd be just too much hassle to even bother most of the time, at least for me.
think of this as "an inline dry send channel" or something. it'd be a simpler way of doing a simple subset of what you can do with a send channel. you (theoretically) don't use word to edit a two-line ini.file, you use notepad. along that line, you might use sends when you do more with them than just retaining a bit of dry, something inline otherwise. at least that's my take on it.
music / photos / renoise scripts
hay guises! action/reaction. I'm not into leaving or avoiding places, I ban 'em by making sure I get banned.. loadsa noise, little signal.. basically anything else makes more sense to spend energy on. thanks for the app, but from here on out we simply don't have any use for each other period. oh, and of course big shoutouts to bit-arts and kaneel and anyone else I forgot
