This is very simple idea something like “Druming Device”.
Mainly this device is for realtime inputting with MIDI controller like Pad kontrol, Trgger Finger etc, so we can do MIDI mapping. The max slots are only 12, since max columns per track are 12.
This is just only something like ‘note input helper’.
So in this image, the instrument number of this device is ‘00’ though, the linked instrument number ‘01’ is inputted on the Pattern Editor actually.
So if you delete this device when the tune is completed, no problem at all.
I know this mock-up is very limited functionally(e.g. you can specify only one note per one column), but I want to make things simple as possible.
If we can have “Column in Song” copy & paste, this device will be more meaningful… I think.
I think that these methods are a bit temporary solutions.
Of course it would be nice if we have a post-input clearup, but only by it, we cannot solve other problems about Drum-input.
Currently, we cannot;
Column(Track)-Lock for realtime input
Routing DSPs to each part of Drum (kick, snare, hihat, etc), altough we already can do this when we play the multi-out Drum vsti. (if we can do Track-Lock, this routing problem will be solved)
But I guess that Track-Lock may be difficult to implement, since we cannot input data to multi tracks at the same time.(though actually I don’t know about this because I’m not a programmer)
So I think it would be good if we have a temporary drum editing window like danoise’s image in the Track Groping topic. We can input drum play on there intuitively, then the data are copied to each track(column) automatically.
How about?? Though the thought is becoming bigger a bit…
