So i’ve made a few very quick sketches to show my point.
And here i want to ask - why not:
- Make samples section of sampler always availible to interract with and see, as it was for ages? It would be cool to make it optional, in a manner as it already is with browser’s files tab, you can just bring it out or in whenever you want. This doesn’t cancel out same section from sampler, but at the same time in most working situation of mangling and rearranging samples between instruments - you won’t have to switch for whole new tab.
- Get back ‘More’ button for browser, and have full-height browser? It won’t hurt i suppose.
- Bring basic Instruments plugin interface for example here? So you can always choose VSTi in any working Pattern editor / Mix situation, wihtout forcefully switching for whole other tab.
This is just few ideas i have, again sorry for raw sketches, just hope it will be interesting for taktik and others.
In my mind best thing about Renoise was always that feeling that you have everything you need on the screen immideately accessible, and all additional or unnecessary functionality tabbed.
I strongly stand for Renoise to be that way for 3 also.
Coz now i still feel a lot of ‘WTF?!’ moments when playing with beta about it’s new interface…
