Can I just start by saying amazing work, this is a beautiful app taken to the next level. I feel like now is the best time to commend the new featured and suggest items for future updates.
Highlights and comments on next step development :
Slew tempo, however I dont understand the song option over the pattern one, but Ill get back to that…
The random stuff
The coarse tune quantizer is genius, really opens up Patterning to being a melodic jammer and with the random stuff a melody generator. However, how did it work out its route note or what note the original sample is? Is this something that can be set by the user or an under the hood potion?
The control over the pattern launch quantisation is very much welcome.
The fact you can control velocity on the record page is a wonderful surprise!
Drum kit swapping, oh yes!
Ratcheting is nice, but pehaps allow Ratchet Attack as well as Decay?
My big gripe that I know someone else has illustrated is the Song page, I simply never used the timeline but dont take any issue with it if others like it, my problem is with editing the patterns. I’d want to be able to move them around and rename each pattern as the way I use patterning is a live instrument. If something is created via brainstorming and I want to rearrange the order, its a major hassle.
Also state saving, which I haven’t tested but Ive seen dismay from other comments around, I have no desire to see Patterning 2 go AUv3 etc but more intergration into the save states of AUM, AB3 and apeMatrix would make this my main app for live performances. Seriously its so good but those niggles really make it hard to rely on it and thus, Patterning 1 has been out if favour from my live rig this year.
