+100 for mixer improvement
+100 for new windows management
and I’d like to have a different file naming scheme in the VSTi batch export. Let’s say I have NI Kontakt with 10 instruments loaded and 10 MIDI tracks named according to those instruments, so I want the wave files to get the corresponding track names and new audiotracks, that will be added, get the same names as well. it will be a big time saver for me.
I’m still up for a lyrics track. Better window sizing system, flexible lane editing. Better synths(oh and a decent harp in Sonic SE). Movable frozen tracks and audio channel inputs included in track presets.
I have trashed my prefs- several times too. And I can testify that it has done nothing good for me. It just screws up my workflow. However, it seems that Steinberg’s and several user’s first instincts when a strange problem occurs is to suggest that the prefs should be trashed. IMO, we need more stable AppData or whatever so that we know that corrupted prefs are not the cause of setbacks in this professional software
My interpretation of the information in that thread is that there might be some improvements to the VST Instruments Rack such as Global Presets (unlike track or instrument/effect presets) with the possibility of there being something like what was promised a while ago, eg multi-timbral instrument tracks.
I brought up that thread because some of the feature requests lately that I’ve seen have been around track management, since as it seems the transparency issues have been fixed unless I’m missing something.
