This is great type of feedback! Some comments below:
Unused note and automation boxes could be shaded grey. Currently I clean up by playing the whole track to see which are used and repeat this for each instrument, which is slow.
Yes, we have some ideas for improving loop previews and making it easy to clean out loops you don’t use.
Adding a series of notes in sequence could be easier; especially the small 1/32 notes.
There was a “drag to make notes” in the Classic iPad app, but then we used two finger swipe to scroll, which is now done with one finger, so then it’s not possible to drag out notes anymore.
Moving instruments up and down, step by step is cumbersome and doesn’t make full use of the touchscreen. At one stage you could drag instruments into different orders, which was nicer.
Has always been like this and requires quite a lot of work to be changed so not a high priority.
Would be neat if automation lines could be quickly drawn as a single curving line (one swipe) and the nodes automatically detected for each line crossed. This would allow partial adjustments with partial swipes across any section(s) of the automation area. Would also help with smoother curves.
Yes this would be nice. As well as automation recording. And smoother curves. Might come in the future.
On automation screens, the top and bottom should always show the default setting (from before and after), instead of being replaced when a nodes there.
The project list should show the name of the creator, so tracks by other people can be easily identified.
Agree! Although the problem is that now we’re using iCloud for the projects, and this currently won’t allow us to display any additional information beside the file names (for lots of technical reasons).
When playing a track, a REWIND and FAST FORWARD button could appear on each side of the stop button, to allow us to jump forwards or back a pattern.
We have some related ideas for improvements that we’re hoping to add.
The export process could include a check-box, for posting the soundcloud link in the Disco #tracks forum using the correct thread name. This would require the user to enter their forum credentials in the settings, as done for Soundcloud.
This is technically possible but nothing we want to invest in at the moment.
In general, the hard part is not to come up with ideas for additions or improvements, but it’s to prioritize things in a way that balances value vs. investment and push the app forward.
