mcalldp and I in another thread discussed many features we would like to see in such a piece of software. I believe mcalldp is looking into it, but haven't heard any progress recently. Anyway, here are my suggestions for some software:
– Save patches from TF
– Load individual patches to TF
– System dumps & uploads
– Make a 'playlist' or patches organising them into banks, etc for a complete upload to TF
– A 'database' of patches on your pc so that you can just click and drag, not fumble around finding stuff
– Integrate the update program into this program
-Work in different OS – i.e. Mac and Linux, even if under Wine.
– Modifying the system settings and being able to upload them – in
essence editing the system patch. This could allow say different setups
for different rigs & bands, without having to manually change lots
of things. As far as patch editing goes, I'd say that it would be
fairly limited given that you really need to be 'on the ground' so to
speak to hear what you are changing – something you can't really do in
software. I dunno – maybe there are other uses I haven't considered?
The more daring bits:
An 'audition patch' button, so that when you select a patch, you can
here a sample of what it does. You record a little piece, then 'attach'
it to the patch
– There was talk of some online patch-sharing
area – maybe a repository which links into the software, so that you
can download other people's patches that they've upload to the
repository, and upload your patches to share. Tie this in with the
'audition' idea and it sounds quite cool.
