Ill just put all of my "brilliant" ideas here in this thread.

I will no longer post seperate threads. I was prolly a bit trigger happy cause i am really excited about reaper. Sorry for the noise!!!

-- consolidated old threads i made:

Idea: Freezing

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I hope you dont mind all of my "ideas"

I am very appreciative of this project, and hope i can add some thoughts to the pool here

Freezing, to me, is quite nessecary, when considering all of the hi-cpu usage plugins out there.

some may have it just fine bouncing tracks -- but this isnt all freezing really is.

Coming from samplitude, i know what a great freeze is like. You select the track (or tracks) -- hit freeze, and the track renders itself, creates a .wav file according to your specifications (nice options like in SONAR would be great) remembers the old track, and effects settings, and then removes the effect plugins from the track.

in the case of a vsti, it would be similar, it would render a midi track but remember it, and you would be able to unfreeze whenever you wish, and re-edit the track.

Just a thought




Idea: RE: Vst and Vsti scanning

SOLVED IN VERSION 0961


Idea: Time signature markers

addressed in update

Fade in/out graphic shouldnt be the same

addressed in update!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

it would be nice if the fade in graphic was opposite the fade out one, it would be a bit less confusing

ADDRESSED

Idea: RE: piano roll

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

yup, yet another idea when im sure theres thousands more.

the piano roll is quite simplistic, which is cool, but...

right click should always be erase, imo...
if you notice, all the commands in the right click menu are accessible through shortcuts -- prolly better to just learn those, and leave left click to place a note, right click to erase it. The less clicks you have to do for those simple commands, the better.

the ctrl key could also yeild some cool things too..

for instance, the FL piano roll uses


ctrl + click and drag the middle of selected notes --

automatically copies them to wherever you drag to

shift + click and drag the edge of selected notes = Automatically stretches the notes relative to each other

this makes for an extremely quick workflow...

samplitude also has a nice streamlined PR...

just a thought, perhaps pick up a demo of FL and see how the piano roll works there, its well known as one of the best out there.


and of course control lanes below the editor for velocity, automation, etc...


Im sure youve heard it all before


a couple more piano roll quirks
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2 or 8 works GREAT for audio events (moving them up and down without horizontal movement), but not in the piano roll


would be nice, if when selecting events in teh piano roll, you could see the notes light up AS you select them, not AFTER the fact

REAPER v1.51 - December 16 2006
space bar now fully passes through, no modifier nessecary

Default stuff i agree with from the wiki :D

.. and also a Midi Learn feature to assign external control to any VST or VSTi (and also to Track enveloppes).

ADDRESSED



MIDI REMOTE CONTROL: This is a core fea......


FASTER SETUP OF SOFT SYNTHS.seems to have a fine way of working now, with default track setup anyway One possible approach: Implement "All MIDI Inputs" under recording input channel. Automatically select the following upon instantiation of a soft synth on a track: a) "All MIDI INPUTS" as routing input, b) arm track, and c) turn on input monitoring.

STRIP SILENCE. The FIRST thing to do after importing files. Remove silence, like in Logic and Nuendo and remove the unused space from hard drive. Running hundreds tracks is choking the hard drive and doing it manually is a waste of time.

the ability to record midi in loop mode, in order to modify an already recorded take (for example, recording only the notes at the first take, and then knob automation... Or, with a drum synth, recording first the kick/snare, and then the hats at the second reading of the looped zone)...

Default Timestamping

ADDRESSED IN UPDATE!

one great thing about samplitude is how it timestamps the offset of a wave file, in relation to the beginning, or well -- it knows what time it was originally recorded at.

So, if you nudge it by accident, or if your project crashes and you didnt save it, all you have to do is right click / move to original time postition, and its good to go.

Im not sure if this is SMPTE or what..

but i know its some sort of timestamping embedded in the wave, or in the associated wave peak file or something.

anyway, its a great feature, almost essential

Default Beat Detective

just like in pro tools --

analyze a track and extract a tempo map from it.

bloody great for free-jamming, and then later adding midi parts. certainly within the target audience.

I heard nuendo does it as well, and djdecks has a sub program that does this i think.

Default multi out vsti

ADDRESSED BUT STILL NOT IMPLEMENTED AS EASILY OR AS INTUITIVELY FOR VSTI

many vsti's use multiple outputs... for those that dont know, take BFD for instance. who would just want to mix the drums as a whole? Sometimes you want to just put some compression or eq on the snare, or some flanging on a cymbal

well, multiple outputs accomplishes this.. if the vsti supports it, you can route certain parts to different tracks -- and process them independantly.

Acid has the best handling of multiple outputs i have seen...

you can select which ones you want visible -- which is nice in case your program has 32 outputs -- who would want that many tracks when perhaps you only want to use one or two of the outputs? They show up like tracks, that you can put fx on..

For instance, BFDUltra has 32 outputs --- that could really mess up a mixer so, even besides only showing the ones you need to alter, maybe the vsti track could act as a folder track as well for additional organization?

whatever you do, please just dont barf out mixer tracks at us hehe please...


here is how ACID does it, imo the best example:

right click the mixer track, this is what you get:

a closer look:

[IMG]http://img126.**************/img126/7083/bfdouts1a2du.jpg[/IMG]

and finally, the result.

3 different mixer tracks added from the outputs i wanted to add effects to. notice not all of the tracks are there!

(could be nice if there WAS an option to dump all the tracks out as well -- again both should have folder track ability)

perhaps you should post this in a seperate thread, it sounds like an interesting idea.

Default Waveform display ideas

1. optimized performance with moving waveform displays during playback -- I hear stuttering when i move stuff to crossfade

also, even the stretching of midi files causes the associated VSTI to hang up a bit, and skip.. this is definetly not cool.

SOLVED, uncheck flush buffers under editing

2. Colored waveforms representing pitch (ala samplitude -- lower pitches in the wave, darker color, higher pitches lighter color, etc) -- helps with editing, and even tuning certain trouble notes!

3. Waveform shrinkage/expansion with envelope/gain changes

(not when you raise the track gain)

but when you have an envelope over a track, it would be nice to see the waveform get smaller as you lower the volume on a certain part, or get bigger as you increase it (again, ala samplitude) -- its good to be able to visualize the changes you are making in this regard.

Also, when you lower or raise the gain of an object, it would be nice to see it.

It really helps to have this feature, as you can see just how much you are raising/lowering it in relation to the rest of the track or tracks.

you could also make this an option for users who dont want it no?

Default simple when needed, complex when desired...

I think overall, REAPER is this way --

it has the easy features easily accessable... for instance, i would have no problem suggesting this soft to a friend i have that i just bought an interface for. Because its so easy!

But on the other hand, if you dig deeper, its actually quite easy to find many complex features, that are intuitively placed (i.e. shortcuts, options, control keys, etc)...

i think with all the ideas that are coming, it is best if they are transparent to the typical user, but available to the more advanced users.

Even advanced users benefit, cause theres many times you can open a project and not want to do a full blown vsti mutli out multiple time signature song -- you just want to record a couple of tracks.

but later on, if you want to add BFDALL with the outputs, its there for you when you need it

Default different double click settings for file type

SOLVED IN UPDATE


for instance, I dont want to double click on a wav and open a wav editor --- (but i DO want to use a wave editor, but in the right click menu only)

but i DO want to double click on a midi and open the midi editor.

could there be a way to seperate these actions?

Default Fast Vsti/controller connection

default track setups take care of this, sort of


when you select a vsti from the fx menu, is it possible for the track to automatically select your default midi input device (on all channel mode) and enable monitoring on that track?

It would be great to just be able to load up a vsti and play it on the keyboard, without going through those steps. I know its not many steps, but it makes a difference in FL, thats for sure.

Default Midi activity indication LED

SOLVED

it would be nice to have one of these, just so you know your midi device is working proper without having to load a vsti.

it could just be a simple dot in a corner that blinks.

Default FL example of different tools...

first, here is an example of the different tools in FL and what they do -- and why FL is the best midi editor out there:

with bad qual 3 in the morning narration:

without:

[IMG]http://img1.**************/flash.png[/IMG]

and a demonstration of the modifers:

[IMG]http://img1.**************/flash.png[/IMG]

first im doing the ctrl + drag select tool, which reaper does with alt + drag, but then you see one thing in here that is different.... dragging out the end of a midi note(s) with the shift key held down.. it streches it out!!!! pretty cool...

and below is an idea of the differnt tools FL has:

Default controller lane midi CC and vsti parameter tweaking (per pattern)

SOLVED

its great to have per pattern as well as track automation..

this way, we can have a midi loop that loops with automation, and an overall track that has its own automation.

its very helpful if you want to hear certain automations over and over again, and certain ones gradually thru the track.

heres some examples of how FLstudio does it:

here i have a free synth which is really good btw, synth 1..

I am tweaking the attack...

[IMG]http://img144.**************/img144/5331/untitled18vh.jpg[/IMG]

now, i go to FL's plugin menu, which has a "last tweaked parameter" selection -- it takes the last vsti parameter tweaked, and allows you to do all sorts of things. We, are going to send it to the open piano roll in the upper right hand corner for automation.

[IMG]http://img144.**************/img144/1003/untitled24mf.jpg[/IMG]

please follow on to

http://www.cockos.com/forum/showpost...9&postcount=22

if you are viewing in post mode...

if in thread mode, its right below you, silly

heres how you add the automation:

[IMG]http://img144.**************/img144/7951/untitled31av.jpg[/IMG]

here is me editing it, IN The piano roll. This way, that automation will loop WITH that pattern, instead of just one time over the course of the track.

(remember both are very useful)

[IMG]http://img144.**************/img144/7690/untitled41tq.jpg[/IMG]

here is are mp3 of before and after:

http://premium1.uploadit.org/3feetabsent//before.mp3
http://premium1.uploadit.org/3feetabsent//after.mp3

see the difference?

nice to have imo

I see we have vsti parameter automation (for tracks only), but is it possible to throw in midi cc automation? Some synths dont have vsti parameters, but use cc...

Default .raw file reading

FX freeze creates .raw files, they are 32bit float and stereo -- those are basically the only 2 parameters i have to check in the samplitude .raw dialog...

I would love to be able to drag these into REAPER.

Yes that's what i have suggested also.
I had posted 2 pictures of how i could see the things go in Reaper.
We must be able to record midi clips without notes, just midi events.
It's like drawing enveloppes, but it's real time : yeah !

Default F keys control screens opening

sorry, another FL-like feature, but it is really helpful...

the (F)unction keys can be used to "tab" through screens, like in FL... its really handy for getting through things, like FX windows, mixer, blabla...

Default more envelope controls

I LOVE the envelopes, and the control you get, and it makes me think of what more you can do with it!

for instance, an LFO to a frequency -- or to the TEMPO!!!!

it could be various shapes, sine, square, saw, whatever...

also, a "draw" mode, where you like, hold down ctrl+click or something and the automation points just follow wherever your mouse goes, I know FL and Sonar have this type of automation editing.

Default "extract" along with "Copy" for looping selection

well..

lets say you just wanted ONE piece out of a composition for a loop... and you wanted to toss the rest.

this could easily be the case if you were just practicing a part over and over again and you get the right one.

maybe there could be an option

"EXTRACT (or trim) loop out of selection"

which would delete/cut either side of the selection, and make the remaining part a loop.

if i had an idea for a drumbeat, and i played it through my midi keyboard into BFD, It would be much easier and faster to have this option, in THIS circumstance, than what we presently have.

however, what we presently have is good if we wish to keep the rest of the performance, or loop different parts of it.


EDIT

im an idiot.. .see post below.

yeah man, i should really get some sleep...

what was i thinking? I guess it would be a couple clicks faster, but not nessecary by any means...

sorry hehe..

actually lets see

select loop
right click
select "copy loop" or whatever it is
delete old thing (delete key)
paste. (crtl V)

OR

select loop
right click
select "Extract loop"
done.

so it saves 2 keysrokes which are easily accessible......

big deal.

hehe o well i just have these crazy ideas.... hehe

Default ACID style looping possibility

well, first off it sounds like the pitchshifting-timestreching algorithm is better -- it would be cool for reaper to have a configurable quaility, hi quality potential algo, that during rendering would be automatically highest quality but have a changeable during playback setting...

you DONT, like in samplitude, or FLstudio have to stretch the files... they are like elastic throughout the whole project.

And also, loops preview to the bpm, and then when you import them, drag and drop or whatever, you dont have to do ANY stretching.

It already knows the bpm, paints (or draws) itself out the way it should, and loops perfect to the beat. When tempos change, the loops still fit, no restreching needs to be done. All the same source file.

It would be nice for reaper to adopt this functionality, but it wouldnt be desirable for EVERY file of course...

so there would need to be a way to have both types of tracks or clips or something.

im sure justin will think of something better if he thinks it should be implemented.

Im not sure if this is SMPTE or what..

but i know its some sort of timestamping embedded in the wave, or in the associated wave peak file or something.

anyway, its a great feature, almost essential
As noted in this thread

http://www.cockos.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1179

what i am talking about is:

BWF

BWF is short for Broadcast Wave Format, a timestamped wave

just to make it clear

Default "real" metronome

SOLVEDin recent update


what i mean is one like the one in samplitude -- that changes automatically with the BPM AND with time sig changes.

What we have now is okay, but not good enough if we are to figure out what would be the best bpm to go at -- a "tap tempo" function isnt a bad idea either, even for an early release.

not a bad time for a bump...

many of the things i request still stand, i will edit the ones that dont.

The multi out has been implemented, but an easier method (as described above in acid 6) is needed.

also shouldnt multi outs be available from the plugin window? What if you have a vsti and a vst effect on the same track, will it route both to all the tracks you send it to?

tempo changes are still weird and a gradual tempo increase makes absolutely no sense if using midi tracks that would require to be stretched.

and even the fact that you would have to split every single midi for each tempo change is quite annoying and years behind other sequencer/multitracks. there needs to be some other way to do this.

even if the midi features dont work out, reaper could still replace samplitude for me if it had an easy, one click freeze feature.

..and whatever you do, we DO NOT need a seperate wave editor (at this stage)... it would be cool in the future (something quick and small like Imagelines edison or like goldwave) but not nessecary now, imo

Why would it be cool in the future but so emphatically not necessary now? What's going to change between now and then?

All these suggestions are nice, Just as long as they can be tucked away and out of site. Although, I'm sure even then they could cause a lot of "Boat". So as long as they're tucked away nicely and don't cause any CPU usage, I'm all for them.
