Nice! A local backup of projects + samples/presets would be very welcome. One can never be too careful.
I just recently tried Elk-Herd (today actually had a 1st go at it) which is surprisingly neat for some internal housekeeping management/rearranging of DT Projects, backupping project Sysex and also removing clutter/unused samples from projects + quick renaming of projects/samples (only supporting DT at the moment) - was planning on gathering strength to be doing some maintenance tonight.
Also OB works like a charm and love the instant visual feedback on parameter changes/presets etc as you know the deal (evidentially you guys made it ) Project/Sample/Preset management from within each dedicated OB standalone plug (machine) would also be nice (with that Save/Load option, drag n drop, etc) But if you’re planning to implement all this management/housekeeping into the Future Transfer app, its obviously all good too and greatly appreciated!
Was wondering if Transfer DT could also have the option to connect like a midi KB and playback the DT octave keyrange when previewing a sample, for quick referencing purposes? (somewhat like AudioFinder on Mac)
As to the dedicated standalone OB machine pages, would it be possible to add an extra page/tab and have an even better ‘Elk-Herdish’ levelled up (micro) management tool where you can dig even deeper and actually Preview projects and its individual Tracks (obviously along the lines of instant visual feedback on parameter changes + hearing the sound, e.g. have a quick instant preview play button in front of PTNs (to playback as a whole) and TRKs (preview individual parts)? Being able to drag and drop TRKs around and even construct (arrange) new PTNs within the Project would blow my mind???
Could even have a ‘drag and drop’ play in ‘chain mode’ sequence (SONG mode preview)
I dont know half of what magic apps/gear already is capable of doing? Very powerful stuff!..
(Got distracted away for a moment, and now understand the need for decksavers (things getting a bit dusty) With the latest excitement/presentation of the M:C pulling me back in, been dusting off my Elektron batch, rekindling fun productivity/exploration and am back to diving into the nitty gritty.)
Thanks for the nice work, cheers!
PS: would it be possible to add a sample Tab to the OB DT for quick sample cutting/visual ref? (better micro-editing, and quick moving around whilst happening inside the machine???) (optional transient detection for setting trim start marker, or ReCycle-ish chopping up parts even (e.g. breaks), or maybe by a btn click to jump/cycle on to the next spike ???)
