(although... why don't we simply say we relabelled it into "XY"?!?)
That'd work :)

The biggest surprise for me is that there's 7 pages in this thread, and not a single mention of the "Edit" button on the wavetable display in the osc section. :D

we have much more important matters to bicker about, such as


edit:

A wavetable editor is quite a biggie. IF that's what it is.

NOT a wavetable editor. [edit] opens the WT in the hexagon, just like it does in Hive 1.2 - it's called [edit] there as well.

(might write it down to clarify with UI guys)

Alright. The "edit" was a bit confusing for me, as i expected that you can actually edit something then.

As much as i like Plugmon's skins, i too found the layout to be less intuitive than the original. That said, I really like what he does with the Arp/Seq, it would be nice if this one were to follow a similar style in that area. Otherwise i really like what i can see of this new GUI so far.

Will there be the usual public beta phase before it gets a full release?

We like it a lot, too. Hence the idea of maybe adding an equivalent to Bazille's Gearporn skin.

We don't know yet.

Regarding the skin: I would really appreciate it to have a hexagon free plugmon style skin included.

And I think public betas are always great. It could create new customers and there were always good suggestions or bug founds in previous betas :)

I'm pretty sure, that won't happen.

It's a big enough job to design and create a complete new GUI skin from scratch, let alone two completely different ones. Graphics, scripting / re-referencing / asset management... is a lot of work for a single creator of one.

Hehehe, we got people doing this full time - we also have freelancers. We have 6 or 7 complete Zebra2 skins which "weren't cutting it". Furthermore, once the skin and other stuff is done, there'll be a 6-week preset design phase. Plenty of time to do another :clown:

Hive (and one preset in it) is the reason why I started to make psytrance.
but you can make psytrance with just about anything and that monotonous bassline and kick loop.
