Yes, as usual, the best is always to give the choice 😉
I know, but it is silly to have to move the mouse each time when it could be avoid. It is rather anti-ergonomic.
It is the sort of thing I do perhaps 20 time a minute, several hours a day, 7 days a week… So it is a great relief when I jump (for instance) to Reaper ! 😉
And it would be so easy and fast for Frits to add such an option…
It would be nice to set the cursor by clicking into empty track as this would give a much faster arrangment navigation.
Yes. This and an option to change the current mousewheel behaviour (horizontal zoom WITHOUT any modifier key) will change my life…
By the way Frits, can you remind me how to make Podium create only one multichannel mapping (instead of a folder full of seperated mappings) when scanning the folder, like when importing a single multichannel plugin ?
I’m not sure I understand you correctly, but if you right-click a mapping of a multi IO global plugin, you can use the menu “New multichannel insert mapping”.
Ah, and is there a way to remove it ?
I don’t know how the other host do to allow the editing of files while the files are in use, but it will be nice if you could at least remove them from undo when they are deleted.
Perhaps with a command like “remove unused files from undo” ?
The title of plugin editor windows now show the track name that the plugin is assigned to. Global plugins show the instance number.
Thanks, it will help a lot !
Fix: Occasionally playback could hang if started after saving a very large sound file.
I will try and tell you if it works 😉
I want to just have a single device that defines the sound card as a 32 channel device (or some definition other than mono or stereo). Can Podium do what I am trying to do?
Yes, you have found the perfect host for you astonishing microphone (I whish I could afford it !).
Welcome to Podium’s multichannel land 😉
Oh, fantastic, thanks a lot !
When the error happens, does the UI freeze in any way?
Not really : all the menus and buttons are working, but they have no action.
When you say that you need to kill the task, does that mean you can’t exit Podium normally?
That must mean that the power button remains lit, even if you try to disable it?
No, the power button is alternately turned off and on when I click on it, it can be disabled, but Podium continues to play !
The open/close state of plugin editors is now remembered for each arrangement, so the editors are automatically opened the next time you power on.
Thanks a lot !
Little things like that can really make a difference in everyday use.
Fix: Resizing sound events to the start of the arrangement could in certain cases reset the offset within the sound.
Well done 😉
One of the problems is that Podium doesn’t know the difference between an “audio track”, an “automation track” or a “MIDI track”.
I appreciate a lot not to have to create specific tracks like in some other DAWs, but perhaps if Podium will associate an invisible “code” to each lane according of what kind of data it has on or what kind of mapping (it would be easy for automation parameters lanes), it will avoid such confusions when copying events between tracks ?
For instance, if I put an audio file on a track, an audio “marker” is automatically associate to it. Then an audio event will have to “jump” to the next “audio maked lane” when pasted ? It would perhaps prevent it to be pasted into an “automation marked lane”.
Of course, we will always be able to put what event we want on every lane by usual dragging.
Other ways to reduce clicks in Podium have been mentioned before (of course) but are worth mentioning here IMO…Docking of FX GUI’s
And also (of course too) show all the plugins windows that where previously opened when turning an arrangement on.
It is something that is so natural when you open a Reaper project (for instance) : all is here, ready to work like when you have quit it last time, just have to push play 🙂
