Please note MIDI features (much requested!) in progress - thanks for your patience. Hope you like these updates in the meantime. -Rob
Rob provides some insights into the update and his work on "MIDI Stuff" in the description of a new update demo. As always, the video itself sounds amazing!
While working on MIDI stuff (it's coming, it really is) I added support for simple beat accents and 16th note shuffle. At the moment these are presets, but may be configureable further down the line. This little demo shows accents and shuffle on a straight 16ths note hi-hat pattern - it's a bit easier to hear what's going on that way I think.
After toggling shuffle on and off on a more complex beat, I then I go into a kinda chilled-out dancey doodle which I hope helps showcase that you can get quite a nice feel going on with mid-tempo dance type doodles. It's just me messing about from the half-way point on, basically.
Accents apply to the beat and are turned off and on by tapping the step indicator buttons. Shuffle or "swing" mode is toggled with the dancing couple! Swing - get it? :-)
I've also used a new "JUNO" piano sound and the massive "Planet" reverb, also coming in 1.3.2.
Just doing a bit of final testing - should be available in the next day or so, and MIDI stuff, currently in progress is coming after that, it really is.
Hope you like the new features! Please let me know what you think in the comments.
