Sequence/track playback direction options (like Fugue Machine)
Something that would open up a lot of creative opportunity (and I would assume wouldn't take too much development time) would be to implement various playback options for tracks. For instance, you could have a sequence play forward (default), reverse, back and forth, and reverse back and forth.
I started thinking about this when I was using Fugue Machine today, which is one of my favorite sequencers. While multiple play heads is probably out of the question considering the Deluge workflow, that could easily be worked around by simply adding duplicate tracks and changing their settings (which is really all Fugue Machine is doing).
Additionally, the other parameters you can set in that app would certainly be feasible:
- Tempo: speed of of the playhead relative to master tempo.
- Start: step at which playhead starts playing the sequence.
- Invert Switch: if enabled, the sequence will be harmonically inverted. In other words, the highest pitch becomes the lowest pitch, and the lowest pitch becomes the highest pitch.
This could really be a killer feature for the Deluge. I know I would use it a ton, as I'm sure a lot of other would.
