honestly, at the modern rate of work, complexity/depth of projects… I could user a notepad everywhere. It should just be a standardized pop-out found in many places of the program not just per channel - VST base housing so you can make notes on instances of plugins, MixConsole, per event (freeing description of getting crowded), Device Studio Setup Panel (Global notes), Groove Agent.
I would like to see an update to notes in many ways.
-I would like to see them appear in the Project Browser, and or a Notes Overview window that collects all notes into one place organized by track/location of DAW component.
----Changes organized by date - ie, every time a change is made, it creates a new “NotesVersion”.
----Text-based search for notes across the entire project.
-I think notes should be in an ‘add’/‘remove’ format whereby the user can create an expandable/collapsible tree of multiple note points.
----Each of these points would be date stamped.
----User Name stamped
----User could right-click on these points for further options - ‘colour code’, ‘add checkmark’, ‘strike-through’
-Basic Text-Formatting - Bold, Italic, underline, strikethrough, colour, sizes 1-2-3.
-Option for Project Main Notes, to always pop-up upon project open.
-I would like to add pictures
-I would like to create a print-out of all notes in the session
-I would like to create a voice memo linked textually in the notes. Right click>Record Voice Memo>Select Input>Starts Recording>Finish>Give Voice Memo-0001 a name>Enter.
----User in preferences can decide between storing voice-memos in their project folder, or in a different location (say a thumb drive)
----Organized in the directory in folder archive system by-date, then by-track.
Alright, I took it a bit far, but you get the idea.
