- No instant playback. 0.2s (?) delay is really bugging me. Has to be snappy IMO.
Oh, this is definitely due to the (very) conservative “default” audio settings.
Head into preferences and dial it down all the way until you start to hear crackles on the test tone.
Or better still: use ASIO
But you have a point - we should add a dialog, shown initially, pointing out that you might want to adjust these settings.
- Took me a couple of minutes to understand how to add files and make them searchable (= not via drag’n’drop). Libraries/collection/explore concepts aren’t instantly obvious.
Indeed, the library is where the “meat” is. Unfortunately, you can’t get there without first building a database - hence, the explorer.
But I could imagine that eventually, these things will fit more tightly together.
- Doesn’t seem fully well trained for vocal sounds? I’m getting more irrelevant hits there, it seems. I guess it’s getting tricked either by formant filters or “burring” (?) sounds.
Yes, vocals are indeed the hardest for a computer to tell apart - something we suspected would be tricky all along.
Refining the models have been a continuous process, which involves refining the training data, measuring test results, gathering feedback, etc. It’s a long and time consuming process.
The biggest improvements usually arrive as we identify some “obvious” and well-defined category… because then, these sounds won’t end up elsewhere
It’s always going to be a bit fuzzy, though - which is also why we’ve made it possible for a sample to be “on the fence” (belong to one, two or even more categories at the same time).
Mhn, i cant mix class and categories. For example, “Claps” and “Loop” to get some looped clap samples. Is this a bug?
Not a bug, but perhaps missing functionality. As things are now, a sample can be classified in four different ways:
When both classes are present, the first one is the primary class (this is also made clear by the text being brighter)
And, (this is what you’re looking for) currently a “pure” Loop does not display a category, while the other 3 are able to.
So, while you can actually select the “Claps” category and get some loops, they will be Oneshot/Loops as things are currently working.
But it does indeed make sense for simple, well defined loops. Note taken
