With values, you mean (randomly chosen) parameters from the already selected dsp/vst devices in the hydra? (Since the input slider is for the most part determining the values send, random values in the min max boxes could be an additional option) .
Thats cool with me, tho if one could hit a random-button and an empty hydra device could be filled (to the extend that is visible, meaning 4 outs at first) with a random selection of vst/dsp devices present in Track/dsp list then I’d favor this.
randomize specific parameters (additional dialog displays showing checkboxes /w params)
OR even better:
That’s right folks, just like photoshop can lock layers, we should be able to lock parameters in place. That way, a randomize function would leave whichever params we don’t want touched in place.
I wish they would let you span tracks with this. I am dreaming of all the crazy fun I can have with gates.
Imagine one channels gate set to ‘gate’, another channels set to ‘duck’. apply the same sound but with differing effects to both the tracks.
I guess that the internal communications between renoise devices has already been set in stone; I can only dream!
I really love hydra …been getting som p^retty complex stuff out of it …it’s just a pitty that the track flow is always serial …so you really need a lot of send busses if you wanna create some parallel routing effects =;
So why not give hydra a signal flow routing matrix ( like a tiny mixer inside to set up effects routings )
Something I’ve often stumbled upon why using the Hydra:
Devicechains do get now easily very complex with the hydra, so its would be even more important than before, if one could hide all the FX that you don’t wanna use/see at the moment -> collapsing them to only see the headers.
