time for a Reason 4 aware Revised version if this list


Remote:
- Make available to Remote some device parameters in context/aware of the audio path of the selected instrument (i.e. provide some extra spare CC's to control the knobs/sliders/buttons of the reMix channel to which the selected device is connected to)
- Visual feedback for selected "Keyboard Shortcut Variations" maybe through an optional "Remote Display" device available for each MIDI surface connected, useful when using surfaces/keyboards without display feedback


Browser:
- Favorites as a folder tree (aka virtual file system)
- Show files inside ReFills greyed instead of hidden (i.e. show samples, songs, midi when browsing for patches)
- Possibility of dragging a folder tree to favorites and automatically get all the sub-folders created.


GUI:
- Multi-column view of Rack (n X standard width Rack)
- Mouse wheel should also be used to change values, knobs, sliders and wheels when hovering those objects with mouse pointer
- Snapshot option for full-size Rack "screenshot" (Front and Back, maybe side by side) to a songname .jpg file
- Resizable window (with "Resize to fit rack" and "Resize to default" for traditional Reason size)
- Zoomable external window for selected device (useful when rack resized to less than 100% for overview)
Requests (kinda) addressed by R4:
+ Device icons on each menu item = through Tool Window's The Device pane


Sequencer:
- Multi track recording (not only from Master Keyboard)
- Device track assignment selection through a Cascading menu by device hierarchy/type (devices inside Combinators as sub-items, like right-clicking a cable connection)
- Tap Tempo (check *Tap Tempo - Again - MusicDir 2007-06-21 19:52)
- Drag'n'Drop'ing a device on a track should assign that device to that track
Requests addressed by R4:
+ Vector-like modes on parameter editing (like using the SHIFT key when designing Matrix curves)
+ Optional Tempo master track


reMIX:
- Aux knobs CV in (at least for Aux 1 and 2)
- Level CV out for each slider, so the reMix could double as a virtual CV controller
- Stereo audio output for each channel (much more practical than using a bunch of Audio Spiders when ReWired)
- Possibility to hide/collapse various sections (Aux, Eq, ...) so multi mixer setups only display the needed sections saving rack/screen space


Combinator:
- Knobs should snap to the correct target parameter values automatically
- Micro-display per knob showing the target parameter's value changes
- Multiple note range segments
- CV triggable "Run pattern devices" and "Turn effects off"
- Extra global volume (CC07) knob/slider to control every internal device volume, just like Pitch Bend and Mod Wheel (CC01)
- Extra hideable section/segment with 8 to 10 sliders, knob+buttons or drawbars(!!!)
- Extra Aux CV input for generic use inside combinator
- Note, Gate and generic extra Aux CV output (internal input to external output, like audio)
- Note, Gate and Aux CV internal output (so selected internal devices can capture the Combinator's external input)
- Mod Wheel internal CV output
- Internal extra auxiliary panel just for CV to Automation convertion. Maybe 16 CV inputs at the back and a Routing matrix at the front. It would free up the use of the rotary CV input for this and it would solve the problem of changing parameters on some devices lacking CV inputs.
Requests addressed by R4:
+ A Transpose setting, for each device (like existing note range) = DONE in improved Combinator


NN-XT:
- Support for .sfz format (like existing .sf2 support)
- Wave graphic display for visual loop point editing
- Fixed pitch Time-stretching
- Fixed time Pitch-shifting
- Audio input for sampling (even more usefull if Audio IN implemented) and saving to .wav/.aiff


Matrix:
- Little (Automation and MIDI/Remote controllable) Next/Previous Pattern front panel buttons
- Loop Start CV trigger input with various modes:
-- "Play once": (a.k.a. "Single Shot")
-- "Start": to ignore the global START transport and only start after the first trigger.
-- "Start/Stop": the same as the above but the second trigger would stop the sequence.
-- "Play/Stop": to play the sequence while the trigger signal lasts (a bit like controlling the START button through a Sustain on/off pedal).
-- "Play/Resume": the same but wouldn't reset the step cursor each time the CV signal stops.
-- "Step play": Each trigger impulse would Play the current step's values and advance to the next step, bypassing the Matrix internal "clock" or resolution setting.-
- More automation/combinator controllable parameters, like step selection, resolution selection
- Step cursor control through MIDI surface/keyboard
- Direct note+gate+curve(mod wheel?) input from MIDI surface/keyboard
- Paste (up to 32) note from sequencer to pattern
- PolyTrigger/Drum mode (with respective 13 CV trigger outputs, like having a 32 steps x 13 channel ReDrum in one display)
- More steps... 64 maybe ?
- Step cursor CV input: The 0..127 CV values would have to be mapped to the 0..32(or 64) possible step positions. This would let random access to matrix "cell" values/notes and also externally controlled alternative play directions (reverse, ping-pong)
- Show/Hide modes to the 3 displays (Note matrix, Gate now, Curve display). With this, one could have a more compact use of the rack when using just 1 of the possible signals (or expand to see all 3 at the same time, if required).
- Pattern selection CV input (direct CV control instead of taking up a Combinator knob's CV in)
- Next/Previous Pattern CV input triggers
- Rotate Pattern Left/Right CV input triggers
- Make more of the available buttons/knobs/selectors controlable through MIDI/Remote and Combinator.
Requests addressed by R4:
+Arpeggiator mode (matrix of played note order vs time) = DONE through RPG-8


Dr.REX:
- Embedded ReCycle for in-rack .wav/.aiff slicing and saving as .rex
- Audio input for sampling (usable for internal sampling even if Audio IN is not implemented)
- CV triggable sampling for real-time audio sample & hold
- More Slices (maybe 127?)
- Loop Start CV trigger input with various modes
-- "Play once": (a.k.a. "Single Shot")
-- "Play/Stop": to play the sequence while the trigger signal lasts.
-- "Play/Resume": the same but wouldn't reset the slice cursor each time the CV signal stops.
-- "Step play": Each trigger impulse would Play the current slice and advance to the next slice.
- Note/Gate CV input for slice selection and triggering or at least a Slice cursor CV input (*almost like the Matrix Step cursor CV input request)
- Make more of the available buttons/knobs/selectors controllable through MIDI/Remote and Combinator.


ReDrum:
- Little (Automation and MIDI/Remote controllable) Next/Previous Pattern front panel
- Loop Start CV trigger input with various modes (*check Matrix)
- Step cursor CV input: The 0..127 CV values would have to be mapped to the 0..64 possible step positions.
- Paste (up to 64) notes (C1-A1 range) from sequencer to pattern
- Possibility to hide/collapse some sections useful in a multi ReDrum setup to only display the needed sections saving rack/screen space
- Pattern selection CV input (direct CV control instead of taking up a Combinator knob's CV in)
- Next/Previous Pattern CV input trigger
- Make more of the available buttons/knobs/selectors controllable through MIDI/Remote and Combinator.


Malstrom:
- Loadable alternate graintable sets
- Mini Wave editor, to view, edit or create alternative OSC waves
- Mini Wave-chain/table editor


Thor:
- Need screenshots of the back


RPG-8:
- Need screenshots of the back



New Effects Devices
- Pitch shifter
- a trueish Leslie emulator
Requests (possibly) addressed by R4:
+Enhanced ECF-42 (*check "ECF-43" - GBathgate2 2007-05-27 15:00) = Maybe Thor's filters take care of this ?



New CV Devices: (*check "Reason needs more CV processing devices (IMHO)" - Koshdukai 2007-05-23 22:52)
- Spider CV II (a backwards compatible enhanced Spider CV)
- CV envelope/shaper (with invert and CV Sample&Hold triggable by CV)
- MicroTuner
- ReTrax: A Tracker-like instrument device (almost like a ReDrum device but with a vertical multi-column sequencer window with note+gate info per cel)
-- with Note/Gate CV outputs per track/channel
-- capable of importing various MOD/Tracker file formats, like .S3M, .IT, ... ?
Requests (more or less) addressed by R4:
+ Arpeggiator (standalone or part of a new advanced CV processing device... or new Matrix mode) = DONE with RPG-8
+ NoteDetector = DONE with Vocoder+Combinator Transpose
+ MIDI2CV = DONE with RPG-8


other Feature Suggestions:
- Patch selection through MIDI "Program Change"
- MIDI-out
- Audio-IN/Sampling
- Audio-Recording/Tracks (if possible, using Celemony's Melodyne technology. It would be perfect!)
- Embedded ReCycle functionality (mentioned above in Dr.REX)
- VST hosting
- Virtual MIDI (CV-like) cables and in/out on each device for in-rack poly-note processing and rerouting (think Peter Tools's LiveSet rack backside)
