I know I mentioned it before for Mixcraft 7 but here it is again.
How about: Velocity Line drawing for for piano roll or Track automation, or pre designed curves to add to the mouse gestures, like exponential fades, in and out. That would help in controlling certain sections of the song when one needs to lower or raise volumes in a certain pattern, adjust panning or effects. As it is, all that we can do is raise or lower by drawing a straight line in automation,...But there is none for velocity, except the fact that one has to slide the mouse manually, which is not always a success.
Or adjust the pitch bending to more than -2 or +2 in the Mixcraft instruments settings, or even modulation and portamento speeds, ADSR control, or at least create a VST effect that we could add to any VST instrument. I mean, the ability to customize the sound of the instrument to what we need. Wouldn't it be fun to, for example: Raise the envelope attack, decay, sustain or release setting on a piano or Strings Section, or whatever instrument to create a whole new sound, or simply to add that certain feel to a part of the song ? I often use this on some VSTi's like ENV Decay or sustain on the Bass part to stretch out a note that fades too soon. Of course, there are VST's Synth for Bass but often they sound too Synthie, not real or plucky enough like a real Bass, like your Finger Bass. I mentioned Bass but it could be any Mixcraft sound in fact, like Brass Section, lower the ENV Sustain to simulate a Brass hit, and keeping the tail sound open, but with less volume or velocity.
I think this would be a great feature for Mixcraft 8.
Thanks for reading!
