I don’t think a lot of other people other than myself would appreciate this feature, but the ability to recall snapshots (and I don’t mean like 2 or three of them, but 128 (FF)) of VST knob positions via a command would be super swell. Some applications:
1.) You could make a single VST sound like ‘battling solos’. In other words, hit snapshot 01 and play a little ditty then call up snapshot 2 and play more. It sounds like 2 different synths, but it’s the same synth doing all the work.
2.) Glitchy synths without sampling for maximum control. I wish I could give an example or two that many people would know as an example, but I guess just imagine a quick arpaggio where every note sounds like a completely different synth, again, all done with a single synth and without sampling (which would disallow manipulation those sounds in ways the sample can’t be).
Again, suggested before but an X morph between snapshots would fit right in here…hell, even a Audiomulch type 2D control for morphing between lots of patches would be cool in this respect as well. It’s very tough to automate drastic changes on a VST efficiently. You can spend hours on a single pattern trying to get the sound you want just doing this…which the feature would greatly reduce the time of…(make snapshots, make morph map, play around with the mouse while recording, done)
