This is a place to say what features you would most like to see on the Deluge in future. If you have an idea, start a thread on this forum explaining it. If you like an idea, please upvote it so we can see which are most popular.

We already have a bunch of ideas we believe would be able to work on the existing hardware and would love to see featured but can’t offer any sort of implementation timeline just yet, some of these features include:

Copy / load just one track in from another saved song (DONE)
Streaming audio directly from SD card (DONE)
Live processing of audio input (DONE)
MIDI file import / export
WAV file export / mixdown
Resampling
(DONE)

Also, some really significant additions which we understand the demand for but are not part of our roadmap at the moment, though may in the future, include:
Software editor
DAW integration

for ideas other than those mentioned above, start a thread and tell us what you're thinking.

    the same suggestions get repeated a lot. but one cannot cruise all threads, way too much!
    myself, i managed being too lame to see there is a top rated link for our suggestions, so might help to post it here: http://forums.synthstrom.com/discussions/top/ever
    => at least have a look at the top rated suggestions before posting a new suggestion.

    Hi Ian, I'm patiently waiting for you to implement the .wav mixdown feature but just to be clear what you mean with this is that different tracks are rendered into different stems - so not a summed mix right?

    Yes. Ian means a wav file for each track.

    It is a very complex feature that Rohan is always working towards. We have not forgotten these promises.

    I find the response of the Delay Amount to be very difficult to control - it seems to be linear or even logarithmic and I find (clumsily) I can push it into feedback which is deafening, 'unmusical' and of course knocks out polyphony as it overloads the CPU. Could a switchable setting for the FX controllers be implemented? Linear, Logarithmic, Inverse Logarithmic?

    Love the box though and still getting to grips with what it can do!

    +1 for wav mixdown (Just because it's too slow to resample everything :smile: )
    The in order of priority I'd vote for +1 for Midi file import export.

    Could you please explain what kind of feature this is? I‘m still missing the important option to copy a track (including all events and all settings) from one song to another song. Unfortunately the implemented kind of copy/paste just „works“ if you do this step by step, but it’s not possible to copy a whole track at once.

    Is this not documented yet or still missing?

    "Is this not documented yet or still missing?"
    "Could you please explain what kind of feature this is?"

    This works how it was intended. Sorry, to be more accurate, this could have said copy "notes" from one song to another saved song. We have noted that people are further hoping for a variation which includes all information - this is a much greater level of complexity and UI

    Hello,

    Sorry I was unable to figure out how to create a new post in this area.

    A feature I would really appreciate would be the option to use microtonal tuning.

    In Addition to playing western music I also play Arabic/Turkish/Persian music which utilize different divisions of the octave. Deluge seems like I would work amazingly well if this was implemented. Would love for instance, the ability to play an interval of a neutral third, as opposed to either a major or minor third.

    You could easily implement this by just offering the possibility of custom scales/modes that could have notes that are microtonally tunable(divisions smaller than a semitone). The most primitive would be to have an option for quarter tones, but would be even better if it could be smaller divisions. In Turkish music there are divisions as small as a 16th of a semitone.

    The other option would be to have other sets of preset scales. Like currently you have all the western modes (all based on semitones). But maybe there could be a meta menu where you could have the main Arabic, Persian, and Turkish modes with the correct tunings(and option for just intonation rather than only tempered tuning). This would be a game changer for synthesizing and for sampling. You could have synths that could for instance play along to a gamelan orchestra in tune with it. There are some “oriental” workstations out there that have limited versions of such functionality but they are very limited and archaic and way over priced, compared to the deluge.

    This may seem like an obscure request but there is a major demand for electronic instruments that can accommodate these tonalities and I imagine all the experimental and electronic music people who use this device would appreciate the expanded possibilities this relatively simple feature would bring.

    Once again sorry I couldn’t figure out how to create a new post on the forum.

    Hopefully this description is clear, i can explain further if that’s helpful.

    Best,
    N
