Default Synth's consolidated FR thread [UPDATED Aug 10, 2011!]

Synth's consolidated FR thread - Part I
-----------------------------------------

- Save project (project file only or complete with the media files) as a (7-)zipped RPP (.RPZ) file.

- ASIO underrun counter / indicator

- Fixed value adjustment of the volume faders in the TCP/MCP with the mousewheel by steps of 1, 0.1 or 0.01 [% or dB] (depending on the modifier key).The current behavior is weird: quasi-logarithmic with odd values and less precision as the values get higher

- Sample-level wave editing (pencil tool) for cleaning up pops/crackles/clicks (as seen in Sound Forge)

- Adjustable width for the VU Meters (as in Sound Forge)

- VU Meters to display valleys (as in Sound Forge)

- Peak Hold feature for the VU Meters (sticky peaks)

- Add a RECORD button to the MIDI editor transport

- Fully automatic ghost notes / ghost channels view in the MIDI editor (as in Podium, Temper and FL Studio)

- Ignore mousewheel on faders unless used with a modifier key - add an option to adjust a fader under the mouse cursor with the mousewheel only when a modifier key is pressed

- A menu with GM/GM2/GS/XG presets for easy selection of instruments when using the Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth or other (WDM) softsynths

- MIDI randomize (humanize) and groove templates

- Total project length displayed in the transport panel (very useful)

- X/Y controllers for simultaneous control of multiple parameters (as seen in KORG Kaoss Pad / Samplitude / FL Studio)

- Continuous scroll: during playback, the cursor stays centered while the tracks are scrolling in the background.

- Better display of MIDI notes/events in the MIDI editor (with a thicker and rounded border around the events) as in the latest version of ACID Pro

- Option to reset faders to zero with a middle click, instead of doubleclick and to disable the doubleclick reset completely

- Ability to place the the MIDI editor transport panel on top

- An option to adjust the meter scales for smaller steps (higher density): 3dB steps, 1dB steps or nonlinear/logarithmic

- Ability to auto-color new tracks with a predefined cyclable rainbow color pattern as in other audio apps

- Ability to color the peak meters of every track differently based on a cyclable color pattern

- (Native) removal of DC offset for audio items

- Statistics for media items (DC offset value,max/min. peak value max./min. RMS,etc.) accessible via the right-click context menu

- K-Metering and LUFS metering

- Score (notation) editor

- Ability to minimize the MIDI editors and other windows (docking is not an option if you need more screen space)

- Visual Metronome with flashing LEDs as beat indicators

- The typing keyboard keys should ALWAYS be enabled and mapped to the the Virtual MIDI keyboard (even when the virtual keyboard window is closed / hidden),so REAPER would always be ready for VSTi testing. Just take a look at the perfect implementation in FL Studio,for example

- The other keys (numpad keys,function keys,Ctrl/Shift/Alt,etc.) should also be usable for MIDI editing while the Virtual KB is active / enabled (as in FL Studio)

- The mousewheel should control the velocity or other assigned parameter(s) in realtime while playing the virtual/typing keyboard. This way velocity-sensitive keys can finally be simulated with a typing keyboard (imagine that on a laptop !)

- 'Split Voice' mode for the the virtual (and typing) keyboard: The upper octave keys (Q to I) could be used to play one synth and the lower one (Z to ,) for another synth. Great for quick composing with a laptop

- Multi-level (multiple stacked keyboards) virtual MIDI keyboard with realtime visualization (feedback) of notes being played

- Custom (free) mapping of drum hits and notes to the typing keyboard (live mode)

- Virtual (draggable/graphical) CC wheels/joystick on the right side of the Virtual MIDI keyboard for controlling parameters with the mouse

- Use all keys of the typing keyboard for virtual keyboard MIDI input. Extra keys (, . / [ ] \) should be used for octave overlap as in FL Studio

- Draw a separation line between the waveforms for stereo and multichannel audio items

- Custom color for grid rows in the MIDI editor Piano Roll (as in Temper)

- Media Item Pool with drag'n'drop to the arrange window (as in Samplitude)

- Intelligent loop regions with user settable repeat count (repeat x times then exit the loop and continue playing)

- Incremental Save / Save as new version - a simple auto-rename feature for manual saves [e.g. ReaLlama_1.RPP,ReaLlama_2.RPP,ReaLlama_3.RPP,etc.]

- Project (song) position slider in the transport panel (as in Samplitude, FL Studio or any media player: Winamp/Foobar/etc.)

- Ability to select notes,edit note parameters & add/delete notes from within the CC lanes (as in FL Studio)

- Adjustable pitch bend (CC) range. The default range is too small.

- Ability to export parts of a project (a single item or a track) and import it into another one together with its dependencies)

- Append another .RPP project to an existing .RPP project/merge projects

- MIDI editor: Automatically move the loop point cursor to the next measure (or beat) [not to the end of the last note]. The current behavior is extremely annoying!

- Support for playing/loading SoundFonts

- Fix for the MIDI editor: do not display/allow anything before beat 1.0.00 (!)

- Alternate shading for each odd/even bar in the Piano Roll (as in FL Studio)

- Restrict the track volume/pan knob adjustment to one mouse axis - up/down or left/right only (not right & up / left & down at the same time) for better control (it's way too fiddly right now).

- Freehand MIDI CC event drawing as in Reason and Samplitude

- More editing tools in the MIDI editor: strum,flam,arp,etc. (as in FL Studio)

- Selection tools for MIDI editing: invert,reverse,scale,etc. (as in FL Studio)

- Adjust the project tempo (BPM) in the transport bar with a mouse drag

- Visual animation (feedback) of the played notes (on the testing keyboard in the Piano Roll editor) during song playback

- 'Replace FX' option in the FX window

- Pattern based step sequencer for creating drum parts (as in FL Studio)

- Fret Roll - a modified piano roll for guitar players

- Step-based trancegate

- Advanced arpeggiator with chord mode (JS_MIDI_Arp is way too simple and not native)

- Audio & MIDI chopper effect

- Non-linear arranging & sequencing with session / playlist mode (as in Ableton Live and FL Studio)

- A textbox to type in volume levels manually with the typing keyboard (as in Samplitude) This *was* possible in older versions of REAPER

- A MIDI softsynth/wrapper that uses DLS soundbanks (as in Acid Pro and FL Studio)

- Better GUI for the JS plugins

- Oversampling of plugins

- MIDI polyphony counter as in FL Studio

- Display the track icons on the left side (before the TCP track controls)

- Auto-sort overlapped items when in FIP mode

- Hide the transport+status bar in the Piano Roll editor

- Remove/hide toolbars completely (including the MAIN toolbar)

- Option to hide the TCP completely (use the Mixer & arrange view only)

- Hide everything but the track icons in the TCP

- Edit (reorder and/or remove) the buttons in the transport bar

- Show the audio interface and/or mixing bitdepth in the menubar

- Tint the track (and item) backgrounds with different colors but leave all track label backgrounds WHITE for better readability

- Tint (color) the track icons based on the track/media items color

- Show MCP track volume faders on the right

- Set a track icon for the MASTER track

- Use the USB Gamepad buttons/axes just for program shortcuts / actions. This means it has to work with the 2 options (MIDI learn and Virtual keyboard control) disabled!

- Adjustable starting point for the per-item volume envelopes (start at 25%,50%,75%,etc instead of 0)

- Inverted versions of the already available vol. envelopes

- Per-item Pan envelopes (differently colored)

- Per-note (not master/global) pan in the MIDI editor CC lanes and/or as pan handles on notes (a standard feature in in most DAWs)

- Better & faster resampler (SoX/SRC)

- Winamp audio/DSP plugins support

- Wrapper for Buzz plugins

- Backwards playback and rendering (this would be awesome). Since audio scrubbing/jogging is already there,this could be implemented easily

- A good,complex all-purpose synth to replace ReaSynth

- A real drumsynth to replace ReaSynDR

- Improved ReaSamplomatic5000 with better envelope editing and more features

- Native Linux build

- With the current trend of wider LCD displays,vertical resolution becomes a real problem these days.Especially with audio apps like REAPER where every vertical pixel counts.By hiding that bulky (XP) titlebar you can restore a good chunk of screen real-estate and use it for displaying an additional track in the TCP
Try hitting F11, it's been there since the beta days

Thanks for the reminder,SamuliK.I almost forgot about the fullscreen shortcut.Haven't used it since I switched to using Linux/WINE (where fullscreen can cause problems with certain apps).
So that makes one FR less now.

+1! Or even better: Each midi item is placed as a midi-file in the project directory just as the wave-files are?

I remember that I once accidently removed a midi item in my project and for some reason it couldn't be undone. If the midi items were files in the project directory and reaper just linked to them from the project they would only dissapear if I cleaned the project directory :-)

Exporting would be easy then as well as they're already there with meaning full names (track-name_date-time.mid or something like that)

I know its a pretty big one as it propably require changes of the core in reaper, but hey... it is a FEATURE request right ;-)

I believe you can have that already. Go to preferences->media->midi and check the .MID files checkboxes for 'create new MIDI items as:' and 'import existing MIDI files as:'.

From now on Midi items should appear in your project directory as .mid files.

I am not sure if this also works for recorded items, but you can change any existing midi item from in-project events to midi files with rightclick->item processing->convert active take midi to file.
One thing to concider is that copy/paste now refers to the same file and changes in one item will be made in all copies as well. You'd have to glue the item to a new file if you want them seperate.

Cool! Thanks :-) Typical Reaper... you want it, but its already there (damn that manual is hard to get through)

2. MIDI editor workflow improvements

This is one of the major annoyances in REAPER's MIDI editor that needs to be addressed ASAP


3. Per-note PAN control in the MIDI editor
-----------------------------------------
- Per-note (not master/global) pan in the MIDI editor CC lanes and/or as pan handles on notes (a standard feature in in most DAWs)
and also pitch per-note.

these 2, won't work everytime as you want,
because MIDI, don't have that, and the DAW should insert CC to produce that.
but CC affect all notes not specific note.

Quote:
4. Save project as a zipped RPP (.RPZ) file
------------------------------------------
- This handy little feature should be able to cut project filesizes by up to 100 times*
(*= best case scenario, with long MIDI-intensive projects using native plugins and LZMA compression)


5. Volume fader improvements
---------------------------
- A textbox to type in the volume manually with the typing keyboard (as in Samplitude)
I think this *was* possible in some old version of REAPER,but I can't find any way to do this now

- Sample level wave editing (pencil tool) as in Sound Forge

- X/Y controllers for simultaneous control of multiple parameters as seen in KORG Kaoss Pad / FL Studio / Samplitude

- Continuous scroll: during playback,the cursor stays centered while the tracks are scrolling in the background

- Audio & MIDI chopper effect

- Ability to place the transport panel at the top of the REAPER main app window,like in other audio apps

- Removal of DC offset for audio items (natively,not with a JS plugin)
Quote:
- The typing keyboard keys should ALWAYS be enabled and mapped to the the Virtual MIDI keyboard (even when the virtual keyboard window is closed / hidden),so REAPER would always be ready for VSTi testing. Just take a look at the perfect implementation in FL Studio,for example
we don't need all the keys for the virtual kb,
as we can use arrow keys for example to browse presets.
we need just characters keys for the virtual kb
so there can be a dialog box to select which keys to bypass.

or simply bypass all function keys (keys above 255)
use +/- for octave change instead arrow keys.

Quote:
- The other keys (numpad keys,function keys,Ctrl/Shift/Alt,etc.) should also be usable for MIDI editing while the Virtual KB is active / enabled (as in FL Studio)


- It would be great to have virtual (draggable/graphical) CC wheels/joystick on the right side of the Virtual MIDI keyboard for controlling parameters with the mouse

- Backwards playback and rendering (this would be awesome).Since audio scrubbing/jogging is already there,this could be implemented easily

- Smooth scrolling in the arrange window with the directional (typing keyboard) keys.It's extremely choppy for now

- Pattern based step sequencer for creating drum parts (as in FL Studio)

- Intelligent loop regions with user settable repeat count (repeat x times then exit the loop and continue playing)

- Incremental Save / Save as new version (i.e. ReaLlama_1.RPP,ReaLlama_2.RPP,ReaLlama_3.RPP,etc.)

- Project (song) position slider in the transport panel (as in Samplitude and FL Studio)

- Total project length displayed in the transport panel (very useful)

- The pitch (CC) range is too small.It needs to be extended (a lot)

- Ability to export parts of a project (a single item or a track) and import it into another one together with its dependencies)

- Option to prevent the auto-creation of a new track when (accidentally) moving an audio item below the last track.Very useful feature that will finally get rid of this major annoyance

- Move the note position helper in sync with the note that is being moved in the piano roll,not after the mouse button is released. Try FL Studio's PR editor and you'll see the difference.

- Support for playing/loading SoundFonts

- Alternate shading for each odd/even bar in the Piano Roll (as in FL Studio)

- Vertical track meters in the TCP

- More editing tools in the MIDI editor: strum,flam,arp,etc. (as in FL Studio)

- Adjust the project tempo in the transport bar with a mouse drag and scrollwheel

- Visual display (feedback) of the played notes (on the MIDI editor testing keyboard) during playback

- 'Replace FX' option in the FX window

- A MIDI 'softsynth' (wrapper) for DLS files (as in Acid Pro and FL Studio)

- Better GUI for the JS plugins

- User customizable menus and context menus (remove the stuff you don't use/need and customize everything according to your workflow)

- MIDI polyphony counter as in FL Studio

- Buzz Adapter wrapper

- Native Linux build
agree

i think you can merge 2 projects, by:
insert track from template -> browse - choose any project you want,
instead of track template

(i didn't understand all, but it's too long for now )

edit: there is a JS step sequencer, that it only need to import/export notes from/to midi items
as in sonar, and it would be fine with me.

A REALLY FUCK*NG BIG +1 ON THIS:


2. MIDI editor workflow improvements
-----------------------------------
- Improved note input/delete: left-click to insert (add) notes,right-click to delete. Left-clicking on an existing note should preview the note, *NOT* delete it! (as in Samplitude / FL Studio)
This is one of the major annoyances in REAPER's MIDI editor that needs to be addressed ASAP

5. Volume fader improvements
---------------------------
- Fixed value adjustment of the volume faders in the TCP/MCP with the mousewheel by steps of 1, 0.1 or 0.01 [% or dB] (depending on the modifier key).The current behavior is weird: quasi-logarithmic with odd values and less precision as the values get higher.There's no way to make it truly linear or to assign specific values

- A textbox to type in the volume manually with the typing keyboard (as in Samplitude)
I think this *was* possible in some old version of REAPER,but I can't find any way to do this now

6. Ignore mousewheel on faders unless used with a modifier key
-----------------------------------------
- Using the mousewheel for adjusting faders is a great thing,but there's a great chance you can screw things up by accident.Disabling this option is a no go,since you'll lose this extremely useful feature. A quick solution to this problem would be to add an option to adjust a fader under the mouse cursor with the mousewheel only when a modifier key is pressed


- MIDI humanize, randomize and groove templates

- Score (notation) editor

- Peak Hold feature for the VU Meters

- Continuous scroll: during playback,the cursor stays centered while the tracks are scrolling in the background

- Ability to place the transport panel at the top of the REAPER main app window,like in other audio apps

- Ability to auto-color new tracks with a predefined cyclable rainbow color pattern as in other audio apps

- Removal of DC offset for audio items (natively,not with a JS plugin)

- Custom color for grid rows in the MIDI editor [piano roll] (as in Temper)

- Option to prevent the auto-creation of a new track when (accidentally) moving an audio item below the last track.Very useful feature that will finally get rid of this major annoyance

- Adjust the project tempo in the transport bar with a mouse drag and scrollwheel

- 'Replace FX' option in the FX window

- User customizable menus and context menus (remove the stuff you don't use/need and customize everything according to your workflow)

I think this is mostly there: under "Editing -> Mouse -> Mousewheel targets", if you set the "Windows with focus" value you have to click on a knob/fader before mousewheel actually operates the control. Isn't it enough? For me it is...

this list is too big...I think that there is a chance that the devs will simple ignore it.. :/
