Stix is indeed a great tool for rhythmic sound design. I create loops and bounce them to manipulate the audio tracks but I’m more at home working with audio rather than midi.
This gives me the ability to use REAPER’s regions as well. But that’s just me.
Please give us the ability to rename the pads, I sometimes want more than one kick and may not be using perc for example. I have to wright down where I am putting sounds when my scheme doesn’t fit the default one. Make Sense?
Thanks this workflow can be of interest for other readers, using Reapers *regions*
Rename pads : Yes it makes sense. It has been requested a few times, and it would indeed be more handy.
Maybe automatically writing the name on the drumpads on the drumpad itself (top *squares* of UI) could be also a solution/alternative ? (also easier because it doesn't require user's work) What do you think ? Fact is that you need to select a drumpad to see it's name, and a good thing would be that all drumpads names are always visible somewhere, though soloing it in the mixer will give you the answer rather fast as well. (Reminds me that in Cubase you have to rename the tracks, then the mixer channels, then the clips etc, though obviously all these labels deal with the same object')
