I wish I could travel and see more world, but unfortunately I have limited time for several reasons.I envy you ^_^. I hope you have fun traveling. You learn a lot about other cultures and also tolerate, respect and be more empathetic.Enjoy the experience!
Wow!! Looks superb and the functionality is well laid out. I would prefer the UI to have some sort of collapsing mechanism for particular views.
When I started thinking about this tool in early August, I still did not have a single line of code written. I was already clear that if the tool gained weight, it should have options to collapse with the mission to occupy little space next to the pattern editor. And so it is. All windows can collapse.And so it is.Here a couple of examples:
VPDpro. Main Window
VPDpro. ChordPad. Window two
VPDpro. EffectPad. Window three
Circle (a Spanish user and composer) has helped me come up with the ChordPad, with the theme of the chord types. Of course, it is not a RAS, with accompaniments and so on. But it does allow bombing with chords. ChordPad has been a window added later. Initially, I wanted a simple tool to edit the volume, panning and delay parameters basically. But one thing led to the other. Finally, add the EffectPad window, which in my opinion is an excellent tool to edit the effects parameters. No need to memorize anything, there is the tool that says it all.
I was currently thinking of including two more windows. One to show the metronome action and another to include a horizontal timeline bar of the song. But I fear that both things will be finally discarded. I am still finalizing some things that have to do with the wording to explain the tool a bit. It is actually finished. Need to finish some details…
I see you very busy now! That is good. I’m curious to know what index you’re going to use in Renoise’s book. I very much doubt you get a profitable business with this book. The vast majority of people share free material and a book would be something unheard of, but I do not think it has a broad market. Do not pay any attention to me anyway. Maybe it would be possible to find a small business by selling some well-made tool. But this is not the philosophy that moves in these forums and it really is not worth it. If there is something to share, share it. Surely you will get more benefits receiving what others share.
Personally, I would like to see a business book about Renoise, which gets a lot of sales. But it has to be very worthwhile and be very well written by someone who knows Renoise well and everything that surrounds him, origins, history, career, promoters, developers, users, styles of music, competition, etc, etc.And to get it right it is imperative to talk directly to Taktik. It seems a very serious matter.I suppose the book should have a well-directed approach and that takes time to research.
