(futile) Live 5 Browser feature request

Post by JJupiter » Thu Jun 02, 2005 12:58 pm

My (futile) feature wish is this:

If you select a folder in the Live 4 Browser, you can open/close the folder with the right/left arrow keys. I would love to have this concept extended to files (samples) as well, such that if you would press the left arrow key, it's parrent folder would be selected, and a subsequent 'left' would close the folder.

The above would help so very much if one is going through sample libraries containing a huge number of entries per folder, and scrolling back (or forth) to get to the next (sub)folder.

By the way, this concept is like the Windows (XP) Explorer when using the View->Explorer Bar->Folders.

Very much anticipating Live 5! :-)

Fruityloops also uses this method for sample browser interaction.

As JJupiter mentioned, it is great for people with loads of samples to be able to shuffle through folders.

Should be do-able for the 5.0 release SURELY! ;-)

Spooky!

Reminds me of a book I read about the mind: When we become conscious of a descision, the nonconscious part of the process has already made the descision, but this relation is delayed so that we think we made the descision when it became conscious and not before.

When we want something from the abletons, we are fooled to think we came up with it, when in fact it was already there so we could unconsciuosly make it a wish...

Maybe sweetjesus could do a hexeditor dump and reveal where the mindreading code in Live is located 8O
