I’ve written down some suggestion in a notepad on my desktop which is already there for a few months. I started working on music again and this little gripes come up again 😉
–When you try to zoom in – for example in the audio editor – on a particular detail there is no way to go strait to that detail while zooming. If you highlight a small portion and zoom in on it, it just goes out of the window. The only option is to fit the highlighted section with the button. But I can’t really see how far I have to zoom in and what the result is because it disappears first.
**Suggestion: zoom around cursor >>> the section around the cursor stays in view or the highlighted zone stays in focus
When dragging/making a highlighting zone there is no way the window content will follow when you arrive at the edge of the window. particular annoying when you are zoomed in want to highlight a very specific small portion.
**suggestion: when you drag an highlighted area it will follow when you come to the edge of the window.
–Shortcut to set the cursor at the beginning of an highlighted area. of loop area >> if it exists I never found it and I don’t see it in the shortcut list. I’m always have to drag the cursor to some area
–Shortcut for every tool
–Shortcut for loop, cursor, punching en segment editing
–When changing the hierarchical position of a group track it’s content (child tracks) don’t follow (except if its sub tracks are collapsed)
**suggestion: a modifier key to allow all it’s sub track to follow. So that they stay at the same relative hiearchical position of the grouptrack
–When editing events like shorten/extending them >>> audio stops. the only way is to press play again
–A better visible line when repositioning the marker and tempo events.
–You can set markers in the audio editor but you can’t use Q or W to go from one to the other.
–Auditioning when scrolling audio
–After closing podium to have an option what to save. Sometime I don’t save a project because I ‘m just recording stuff. I always forget that podium doesn’t allow to check/confirm what to save. After a lot of work of recordings etc I’m loosing track of everything what’s recorded and certainly all the snips and takes I’m not using.
**suggestion: (as an option) a list with all the files which are new to the project. on closing so that I have an option to keep or not keep certain files
–Simple fade-in/outs which are directly part audio part. The separate curve track is sometimes difficult to use for just a fade-in/out for little audio parts.
**suggestion: a simple fade in/out as a curve in the audio part or a way to to make very fast fades (logical editor or something) in the curve editor [without having to draw them].It especially cumbersome if you have a lot of little audio snips. and because you don’t see the audio file as you have to open a seperate curve window.
The suggestion from below would also be helpfull here.
–In-track editing of curves >> without having to open the curve-editor
**suggestion: a modifier key which allows to alter the curve directly on the part.
Adding a number (option) to the partname when you draw them. They all take the name of the track, but when you don’t rename them directly they all have the same name. The “problem” arise when you copy a few parts >> you get all gosted parts but you don’t know to which group they belong (only if you start to rename them)
I’ll just copy/paste that into the future development list, shall I? 😉
Nice list. They may not all be implemented for the next couple of updates, but I’ll make sure to consider them all eventually.
