Feature request for Play: Custom Fill Algorithms. These would essentially be customized random fills set up by the user, by setting up ranges for different parameters (like Note Frequency 0-100%, etc.) and then saving those settings as a Custom Fill preset which could be recalled and used on the Fill page where users would press the Fill button to get a new pattern each time based on the preset.
The current Fills are somewhat limited. You can create your own Fills by saving a pattern, then removing the SD card and moving that pattern, but it’s a lengthy process which only allows changes to the samples in the pattern and not the pattern itself. Random Fills are nice to have, but are limited to being random.
More robust options for the Fill feature. It’s nice to be able to create patterns quickly and easily, but it seems like the current Fill options are too limited. Custom Fill Algorithms that allowed users to influence and steer the Fills in a specific direction would achieve that.
The more the parameters available to program, the better, as it would make each algorithm that much more unique. Parameters could be:
- note frequency
- note weight (more towards beginning of pattern, end, middle, or off)
- note pitch
- sample (current selection, current folder, or all)
- reverb send
- delay send
- bit depth
- track length
- play mode (forward, reverse, etc)
- repeat type
- repeat frequency
- MIDI CC
- MIDI note length
You get the idea, basically all the parameters Play has to offer. Users would set the ranges for each parameter, save the set up as a preset, then use them on the Fill page.
This would be a great way to quickly and easily come up with different pattern.
No, this idea would expand on the Fill options already there.
