New GUI is very good for multimonitor setup because of the possibility to undock the sampler (sadly still not the mixer). But for single monitor users, especially on notebooks with their smaller screens, 3.0 is a pretty big step backwards
None of this two configurations that I have always used are possible in 3.0:Browser/Pattern/Instrument-Sample
I have always used this one when composing. It was great, because I could add, edit and replace samples in the sample kit while composing, without the need to leave the pattern editor. So I could see the pattern playing, edit it and try different sounds (e.g. drums) live on one screen.Spectrum/Sample Editor/DSP
A must for finetuning the sample with EQ or other effects.Two things would enable previous functionality:
- sampler should not hide bottom and top panels if they are visible (just like in 2.8)
- left sampler panel (ex bottom instrument setings tab) should be indpendent of the sampler, so it could be shown on the left side of any view (pattern, mixer, sampler...)
I also find it weird to have disk browser on the bottom right and drag samples to the upper left corner into the sampler. I think the workflow was better before, when they were dragged them from the upper centre to the bottom. Again not a problem with a detached sampler on the right screen, but on the notebook... Maybe it would be better, to have the disk browser on the left side? Even if it means that instruments would move there too with it.
