I believe the “selecting similar” feature could be improved. The “tonal” and “transient” narrowing selections are all nice but the selections could be improved by adding a “harmonic” selection. That way you could find similar patterns based on the overtone and harmonics.
Also I believe the find similar feature could be improved overall with detecting similar rhythms and sequences in the spectrograph.
Have in mind that this week has been probably the busiest in years.
A few hours ago, Steinberg released Cubase 11 which includes SpectralayersOne, a special version that has surely required Robin’s attention, at least in the previous weeks.
Furthermore, Magix released a new update (201) for Samplitude, the second important one after this year earlier version X5 release. This update is supposed to fix several important issues, except that in the middle of its release process a new ARA2 issue was found, it affected both Melodyne 5 and Spectralayers 7 function. Well timed, Celemony just updated Melodyne and it solved Samplitude related issue.
… However, Spectralayers 7 issue remains and thus Magix halted Samplitude update release completion and has addressed Steinberg (who is most surely involving Robin) in the ARA 2 fixing work.
