Delete projects directly from the Play

Provide a way to delete projects from the Polyend Play directly.

What is the problem?

Deleting a project from the Play involves:

  • Removing the SD card
  • Finding the SD card USB-A adapter (bundled with the Play)
  • Finding a computer
  • Possibly finding a USB-A to USB-C adapter if you own any recent Mac
  • Deleting the project from the SD card on the computer
  • Putting the SD card back in the Play

Since deleting a single project is so tedious, one may find themselves wanting to delete multiple projects at the same time. Since the Play does not work without its SD card, deleting multiple projects will likely involve having to write the project names down so that one doesn’t accidentally delete the wrong projects.

Since the SD card is so thin, one might also want to avoid constantly removing and re-inserting it from/between various devices.

What do you want to achieve?

Simply delete projects from the Play.

Either:

  • from the File menu, through a new “Delete Project” entry (see terrible mockup below),

  • or any time we are looking at our list of projects (say, through “Open Project” or “Save Project”) by pressing the Delete key (Shift + Fill key combo), which is exactly how we can delete individual samples from our project when browsing its Sample Pool (see terrible mockup below).

Are there any workarounds?

Yes. Ridiculous that you cannot delete a project directly on the device. This needs to be in as soon as possible. The less you have to remove the SD card and manage it on a computer, the better.

I added mockup screenshots because I care about this wish :slight_smile:

well, it’s definitely strange that wishes like this should even exist. shouldn’t it be an expected feature on release, a year+ ago? it’s barely a «feature», right?
