Hey, thanks for your response.
Alright, I can see that I can switch Variations sequentially by using the arrows on my computer keyboard. That’s something!
Even though, I still need to use the mouse to roll on top of the variations’ zone.
I personally think that not including hot keys on a computer software is not a good idea
But I totally respect your decision, and I’ll learn to live with this ‘limitation’ surely.
There’s nothing wrong with the iPad!
In matter of fact, that’s what I use the most.
But I still prefer the tactile experience of pressing physical keys than a flat glass surface while on the stage. I just find it more ‘re-assuring’ having that little bit of muscle memory feedback while on the stage. But that’s just me.
I absolutely love the visual feedback of having an iPad in front of me.
And Lemur is one of the best things I’ve ever seen in music technology in a long time.
The template you guys designed is brilliant so well done for that.
I plan to use one iPad and a iPhone on the floor just for me to see a timer and the name of the Variation/Rack Space I’m on.
The GUI of GP is so well designed (from a musician point of view), that I just hope to try a touch screen for my PC in the future and control everything that way without the iPad if I can…
So there’s not need to be defensive with that…
Now please be open for constructive criticism.
Hot Keys could be really helpful when creating macros with the stream deck for example.
I just find tactile buttons more suitable for me. Including the computer keyboard why not?
The iPad is great for the visual feedback but the streamdeck it’s also amazing on that regard.
So I kindly encourage you to research a bit more on the streamdeck because for what you are saying it’s clear to me that you haven’t done much research on that area…
Hot keys and macros are growing really fast thanks to this little device and are going to be everywhere due it’s price and compact format.
So just for your information, the Streamdeck fully supports OSC, animated gifs, all imaginable graphics, and with a few very easy editors (e.g. Companion) it also supports MIDI messages.
The list is growing very quickly.
What’s more, It’s open source for developers and you can create your own app for it.
I use the stream deck in live shows almost every day with vMix and with Reaper and I think it’s brilliant. Cubase users, and composers are also starting to implement the streamdeck on their workflow… because it’s really easy to configure and really convenient to have next to you.
