It looks amazing for people deep into drumRacks
Not sure about that, considering all the Drum Racks related features that cannot be controlled from Push:
- slicing audio to drum racks
- accessing the mixer or the sends of drum racks
- duplicate drum rack pads
- browse and load audio/clips into drum rack's pads
- preview/pre-hear samples before loading sample into a drum rack pad
Slicing to drumRacks hot key, or mappability would be nice.
Most of this stuff is just not how I work though.
For example, I access the sends of drumRacks through macro mappings and nested drumRacks.
I dont need to duplicate pads, I already have a drumRack kit that is my go to for everything sampled drums.
I already browsed and loaded all the samples I will ever use for drums into Samplers, and created custom racks.
Preview/pre hear is pointless to me when designing new Samplers or Racks, because I am usually posted up at home just arrowing through samples in the browser. Pre-hear is kind of a live performing function, and I dont consider pre-hearing samples a part of my live show.
so the "related features" you desire are not even on my radar,
I've been hacking the APC40 for years trying to access things in drumRacks in a cohesive way that provides an uberfast workflow. PUSH pretty much gets all of my desires just right for drumRacks, it looks like magic to me.
StepSequencer plus Pads layout
velocity sensitive pads
swing per step
access/view of all cells and nested racks
bluehanding of all macros of a selected device
automation recording in session view
There's nothing else like it.
I want one just to use for sequencing, but as of late I am starting to drift away from controllers.
