On the other hand, having multiple sequencers acting as modulation sources within one synth/layer to control different things may be very useful.
Yep, absolutely. Working on that as we speak!
I think ill wait for the actual v.2 release to see what it all finally looks like, but I have to say that Hive becomes more and more tempting.
It won't be overly different. The UI won't be monochromatic anymore (e.g. FX will be colour coded, therefore much easier to edit). I'm sneaking in my utterly simplified take on Make Noise Maths. Just 4 knobs and 4 drop downs (as of now...), properly labelled
. You won't notice these unless you look carefully.
I'm furthermore trying (!) to sneak in a single (!) 8-step baby version of what's called "Performer" in Massive, or "Stepper" (I think?) in Spire. Only, this one produces 4 individual control signals at once. It's like, while you only have very few steps to edit (extensively edit - including ratchets and smoothly morphing shapes!), you can make 4 different selections of these steps and run them parallel at different speeds and order. That's what I'm working on, and so far I'm very happy. I think it's going to be the fastest way to playfully
create complex modulations (or just additional envelopes/LFOs) in any such synth. We just really, really, really have to make sure it fits Hive and does exactly what we need.
I can't wait to show you guys... but because we're really sneaky, we won't have screenshots until after the current sale runs out... gotta oblige to some
of those dreadful marketing rules
