because of another members critique of the new CC/Automation curves not including or translating to shapes, I thought of this feature.
The Automation shape tools (triangle, sine, parabola, etc) when used, would instead create an “automation event” with particular possibility for unique behaviours or presets for each shape type, as continuous objects, rather than series of points.
This would for example, allow the Sine shape to expand/contract after it has been placed. This would also allow for much more complex shapes, like a Sine in which its summary direction curves and expands at the same time.
It would be likely that you want users to be able to flatten these events into the regular automation, with maybe a user definable resolution.
This inspired another idea. ‘Automation Part’’, which behaves in difference exactly the same as Audio/MIDI Parts vs Events. With a part, you can create a shared copy.
This would also create a box around a section of automation, making it easy to do a normal copy, and or a shared copy, meaning you could have that Automation Part in one chorus and editing it would relay to other automation sections.
