A few thoughts on playbox - it's missing a few things...or is it?
I've been playing with Playbox - it sounds GREAT, the fx are great....but I feel like the interface is missing some key things (or maybe I'm missing something). I don't normally post stuff like this but I'm wondering if anyone feels the same way - or maybe can help me.
•Chord lock - you can lock individual chords - but when you roll the chord dice it replaces the chords you locked. Playbox picks a whole new set. This sucks - I'd love to get a new selection of random chords to add to the ones I already liked & locked. Many of the progressions are only really 4 chords, so getting four more extra randoms would be very handy.
•Adding notes to a chord - you can play the whole chord again, but why not have a '+' button to add an extra note? Also - a '-' or mute button.
•Midi export - you can export all the chords, but then working out what your chord progression actually is, is a painstaking process. I feel like just enabling Kontakt 'midi out' so you can record it's output as midi would work so well. Apparently the Grain FX can send midi out, but I haven't been able to get that to work.
• An 'instrument mode' where you can play chords on a keyboard and Playbox just assigns the samples to these chords - live. So I can play ideas (my own chords) with the great sounds and great FX.
All these things feel like they'd be possible within the current interface...wishful thinking I guess!
