I usually don't tease with pre-announcements, but I could not sit on this: a major update is on its way.
I've basically explored the possibilities of Fsus4's vision - having a grand "switchboard" for quick access to any of the xStream models.
Edit: another screenshot - even more compact interface
Or how about this one...
You can think of that grid on the right side as 'customizable shortcuts', which will allow quick access to any model+preset combination with a single keystroke,
Workflow-wise, this is much better than having to (1) select a model, (2) find the right preset, and then (3) trigger the shortcut to "apply to pattern"
Right now, it's using persistent storage - you can create models, presets and preset banks, and they will all load into the grid on startup.
But further down the line, xStream could support sessions - in which a particular grid would load up for a particular song.
Oh, and the grid ties really fine into live performances as well. Especially true, since the next version will have proper "scheduling" - switching is no longer done on a line-to-line basis, but can happen over the duration of a beat,bar,block or pattern.
Expect the next update to arrive in a couple of days
