I couldn’t have said it better myself. Beat Designer not having an Always On Top option is a complete workflow killer when it either covers your entire screen, blocking the project page if maximized, or throws off all your other windows that are open if you don’t maximize it. You can’t even put it onto a secondary monitor.
Groove Agent One has soo many set backs its pathetic. No copy and paste, no layering on pads outside of velocity switches etc. I was very excited for GA1 and BD when they came with Halion 5. Truth is, I haven’t used them in years since due to the above. I really would like to come back to them however, but not until they are made much better than they are.
the “next sample” button to the left or right in the folder list is one of the main reasons why i love Kontakt so much.
you can be groovin with the track playing and then be scrolling thru your samples until you hear the one that just drops into place. none of this “HALT EVERYTHING… I NEED TO CHOOSE A SAMPLE…OH WOW” and then popping open a window and trying to find the folder (that defaulted to the desktop as usual) etc
