A voting poll for MMV enhancements
« on: March 05, 2004, 02:36:49 pm »
Promises are made to be kept. Here is a small wish list for possible enhancements in MMV (sorry but there's no way to have more than 10 items).

This is a great list. I just wish I could choose more than one item. My favorites (in order) are: audio input, sample and hold, note off for sequencer, inverter for waveforms, one screen synth window, Schmitt trigger (if I have audio input, an envelope follower is essential)

I could be wrong but I thought some of these features were already locked in to a future version, such as sample and hold and inverted waves. (?)
G5 Dual 2.3
OS 10.4.8
Digital Performer 5.11
Live 6.05
MMV 2.0
ARP 2600V
2408 MK3/MK1 PCI 424

to extend past the more than one vote issue:
1) Minimoog V quality enhancement
2) Sample Hold
3) Undo latest modification (boy this would save time!)
4) "note off"
5) Schmitt trigger
6) Scroll window - ONLY if it doesn't eat up more CPU
*7) Having the start-up screen in keyboard mode.
*8) Lower CPU or a "live" option that allows use of it in a striped down version (from pre formatted patches) to cut CPU for live performances.
Sincerely,
Nuada

I would like to see the oscillator sync improved by allowing the 2nd oscillator to be set to any number of semi-tones rather than at octaves or fifths.

I don't understand the need for patch changes in a sequencer plug-in. The use of multiple instances is far superior. Also if you implement patch changes then you have to save the entire program bank with the song rather than just the current patch settings, inflating the song file size for no reason. Native Instruments do this and it causes all sorts of problems with different songs having different versions of your program bank, a recipe for chaos.l Surely these hangovers from hardware synths don't have to be carried over to software!

Sorry, the sync comment refers to the CS-80V only!

midi select patches from SONAR is a significant issue for me

I guess that cklunar works in his studio differently to me.  I like to set up midi tracks in SONAR and then tweak them before bouncing to a recorded audio track.  The less bouncing I have to do before seriously mixing down the better.  Stated another way, If I want to change a note in a track, I don't have to go back to the midi, do the change and then bounce again to an audio track.  I just change the midi note and that's that.

I find that my machine (dual proc PIII 1GHz) is hard pressed to handle more than a couple ( and in some cases a single ) instance of certain CPU intensive MMV patches.  ( Using SONAR 3.1.1 i.e. multiprocessor supported )

As for the final inflated size, the midi is only an intermediate step for me.  On the other hand, several intermediate audio tracks (wav or mp3) soon add up to a significant amount of disk space by themselves compared to a midi file.

If you look at the sample Cakewalk Project 5 projects, you'll see those compositions re-use the same synth for different tasks at various points in the composition.

1. Ringmodulator (I like these sounds)
2. Enhance Osc,Filter,Envelope up to the minimoog V quality (sounds like a good idea)
3. Sample and Hold (just necessary)
4. Schmitt trigger (envelope follower)
5. Inverter function for the waveforms
6. "note off" function on the sequencer
7. External audio input
8. Undo latest patch modification with a shortcut (Ctrl+Z)
9. One-screen synthesizer (scrolling window)
10.Patch change within the sequencer host (Cubase, Sonar, Logic...)

Ciao, Daniel

I see I'm the only one who voted for the inverter function.  Doesn't anyone else think it would be cool to have more waveforms? Actually I would satisfied with a reverse ramp, but it would be fun to run alternating sinewaves.  Even the moogerfoogers can do that.

Also I wish we could vote for three items rather than just one.

I'd still like to change the rocker switches via midi!
I read once about the evils of drink.
So I've stopped reading

Wish List
« Reply #11 on: April 13, 2004, 06:17:54 pm »
My wish list would be:
  1) Patch change via midi patch change message.
  2) Ring modular
  3) Sample and Hold.

The patch change would be useful if your using the synth in a live situation and need to change patches via the midi keyboard instead of reaching for the PC and fiddling with the mouse to change patches.

I would like to see future versions of MMV be more aware of dual monitor configurations as described below...

1. When launched as a VST the application starts in full-screen mode which is obnoxious for a dual monitor system. The problem is the right monitor is completely filled with dead space from the maximized window. I must first restore the window (which centers it across both monitors) then move it to the right monitor, then resize it to fill the monitor. This is one of those very simple yet annoying issues that could be easily resolved.

2. In the dual monitor configuration the menu command "Window | Tile" doesn't work. It lines one child up on top of the other on the left monitor and leave the right monitor blank (again).

Okay, so when is voting done and when does the programming begin?  Better yet, when will the next version be released?

I can't say when exactly the next version will be released, but I am working on it

I can say more than 1 month, less than 1 year :wink:
