As I'm learning the Deluge, I realize I really miss another feature from Electribe etc.
Pressing the buttons between the gold knobs, it's easy to select the wrong one.
( The lettering is small, and can't be seen in the dark! So I try to memorize the position... )
If the screen just briefly said "CUTO" then "RESO" for example, you'd know you were editing filter.
Turning the knob would bring up the current number as normal.
This would also help with the Shortcut edits, because the text there is even less readable. ; - )
( Perhaps our eyes were already blurred by too much laptop DAW usage? )
Yes, I want to use this in shows, where the lighting can be really chaotic!
And you want to look at the audience instead of the gear as much as possible. 8 - )
Electribe 2 surface printing is also difficult, but the presence of the little screen as above really helps!
I was really skeptical of a design with no dot matrix screen, but the rest of it is so cool, I thought it justified.
( I suppose it's a bit more of a power drain? )
Still would wish to name the song files. Glad there are 999 with A-Z! At last I won't run out of space
Suppose you want to do something which involves holding Shift, but you'd like to move your hand elsewhere. Maybe "double clicking" the Shift would light it or not, having the function of holding it down for you. Handy for doing the Shift + Track Launch and such!
Reverse on stutter can be interesting! ( Called "reverse looper" etc. on other gear )
^ Clever method! But it'd be even better if there was a track type that was specifically "live looper". ( Get a bunch of Octatrack users to switch over! )
Here is my example with RC 505 looper, but it'd be even better to not have to use an outside looper at all.
Also, 5 loops is not enough for my taste. ; - ) Deluge seems open to letting you run as many tracks as the processor can stand - GREAT
