Seems to me the state of MIDI manipulation has been the same in CB for years … and years. OK chord tracks are cool, granted.
The Logical Editor is powerful but how about some creative tools? The Arpeggitor has been written about in many posts… but how about some generative, interactive processing? I fondly remember the INteractive Phrase Synthesiser from way back. ( Not a synth but a means to process, modulate and play MIDI Phrases … the notes and the Spaces in between !)
Maybe some intelligent Harmony tools … Composition aids … or just evolve the existing MIDI effects.
The focus now seems very engineering driven … inserts, automation, side chaining, a giant console on the screen/s. Don’t get me wrong that’s great but I’d love SB to remember the users who would like a paintbrush to go along with the hammer. ( metaphorically speaking…).
