Please feel free to list all the apps you've wanted but that don't yet exist (or exist only in a half-assed way). Since I'm starting this thread, I'll list the ones that are obvious to me. But please add your wish list here. If you don't mind, let's preserve the numbering (advance the numbers from post to post)-- so others can comment on particular numbers from previous posts.
Here we go!
#1 A goddamn sampler. We need a standalone/AU sampler that let's you map user & 3rd party samples to key-ranges AND velocity ranges-- have some redundant parameter adjustments per sample, per zone, per instrument (channel), and per multi-timbral (all-chans, i.e., global).
BeatMaker requires you to use the whole DAW to get a sampler and doesn't have velocity. Thumbjam is too tedious to edit, and is feature-limited, soundfonts don't have zero attack-times, so don't work for percussion samples.
#2 A goddamn vocoder with modulator AND carrier inputs, and 20+ bands.
#3 A multiband dynamics processor (standalone & AU). Though I list it separately, if this was done with enough bands, and a "side-chain" input, it would work for a vocoder (#2)
I'll stop there.
