Question! There are already a couple similar wishes:
Do you feel like you could behind one of the existing wishes? Or do you think this one warrants to stand on its own? If so, could you rewrite your wish to take into account the differences between the existing wishes?
Hey. I read these other wishes and I do see the similarities. I am taking some time to mentally map how my ask could be incorporated into these other entries before deciding to rewrite or delete. I hope that’s okay.
My initial thoughts were to just easily trigger a big pattern jump with the pads, but then thought, if you could specify the number of play throughs before the switch, it would give you some time to jump into performance mode and do a cool fill just as the new pattern ticks over. So in that way, my wish is similar.
Both of wishes listed are very focused on switching patterns in performance mode which is a whole different beast.
Even if it were possible to see all of your available patterns and make a large quantized pattern change in performance mode, it would mean I’d have to enter performance mode every time I wanted to do that type of pattern change. I’m not sure I want that feature only in performance mode. However, if it was, I’d use it.
I feel my ask is different. Not all jamming/performing takes place in performance mode so I’m hesitant to combine my ideas with the two listed above, but you’re the mod. What do you think?
To be honest, something simple like long press is attractive, but I think that gets in the way of the instant feature which is awesome in its own right. I’m not sure how you could have both without the shift key.
I’m a super fan of instant pattern transitions because you can make up new arrangements on the fly.
Losing that feature for the sake of another one isn’t a great prospect.
I’m just trying to think of a more practical, less hand acrobatics kinda-way to achieve this
Pressing the Pattern Soft-Key under the Screen AND the Shift key to the right AND then the appropriate Pad on the Grid seems kind of … a lot, no?
I just had another idea.
The one press that we need and has to remain is the Soft-key that you need to press and hold for Pattern yes? If that is done, we could use the Soft-Key next to it as a modifier. That leaves the entire right hand free to choose a pad.
Let me explain:
By default these are the commands above the buttons right?
That’s brilliant! Much easier than holding shift. How do I make that the official wish?
Should I rewrite the wish so users can vote on the updated idea?
Pie in the sky idea:
Use encoder to set the length of the queue. Maybe see a number in that third slot. Something sticky so you wouldn’t have to set that every time. I understand if that’s too tricky though and I don’t want to derail the core wish.
