First off, congratulations to your new product, I think the Aeros has the potential to be revolutionary when it comes to looping.
I would also like to suggest some features that I would love to see being implemented in the Aeros Loop Studio:
All of these suggestions refer to the 6x6 mode:
Being able to control functions of individual tracks via MIDI:
a) Stop/Play/Overdub (individually assignable and also as a chain, so each time you press a button it goes from stop to play to overdub etc…so you cycle through them)
c) Load next song
d) (the more MIDI options, the better…but the above would be the most important for me)
Being able to set the number of measures/bars for each of the 6 tracks and for each of the 6 parts in the settings menu.
So far I have to manually “record silence” so that I can set Track 1 to be 4 measures long, Track 2 to be 8 measures long, Track 3 to be 16 measures long and so on. And then I have to do the same for the next part. It would be great if I could do that in the settings and not had to record silence manually.
You might ask: Why not just press record, play 4 measures and then press “next track” and just record 8 measures on Track 2? Here is what I cannot achieve if doing so:
I would usually record 4 measures on Track 1 and then immediately overdub another 4 measures on Track 1.
I cannot achieve this with the current setup automatically, I would have to press a button first once (next track) or twice (for play and then overdub).
Since I am a drummer I need my 2 feet and 2 hands, so I would need the Loop Studio to do it automatically. Only way so far is to set a fixed measure for each track by recording silence first. I hope you get what I mean.
- Being able to reload a track without having to load another track first.
I have recorded silence (see number 2), then I record something I actually play and afterwards I want to load the state of the song file again that I had saved with only the silence, a fresh start so to speak.
I cant do that at the moment. My “overdubs” on the silence then stays. So I have to load another saved song and then have to load the saved song that I actually want to use (the one with the recorded silence that has the exact measures per track that I need).
To be honest I don’t even know if this is really a feature request or if I rather just found a bug.
Being able to turn off the window that asks me every time if I want to save the changes. I understand why you implemented this “warning” window but it would be great if it was optional. An “Opt out” option would be great.
Being able to choose that when you hold the “Play/Stop All” Button, it does not erase absolutely everything but it only erases everything ‘since the last save’.
In other words, holding this button would reload the last save as if you went to the song list and loaded that song.
Being able to save the current song again with a new ‘file/song name’.
Basically a “save as” function. I would like to be able to duplicate a song under a new file name.
I hope I expressed clearly the above features that I wish the Loop Studio would offer. If you have any questions, please let me know.
