Yes. We can always post them in the wishlist. I have a list of such suggestions too. But sometimes I hesistate to post this stuff because I can imagine the staff´s heads are spinning with all these wishes. What we consider important may be totally unimportant to somebody else and they have to work themselves through all that jungle, and I am sure, they oversee the only wish that was really of importance for me. It looks like one of them fell on fertile ground finally in MX8.Mark Bliss wrote:The features and improvements I have described as desirable for Mixcraft are IMO even more useful for a lot of other things however.
I did BTW buy an aftermarket MIDI package. Those packs are played by pro drummers, real human beings, and they do indeed sound like. Those packs are dramatically cheaper than their expansion packs and work off a basic kit, not a jazzed-up kit.
One thing you cannot do with EZD is to make a random percussion track. You can stray in the odd shaker or handclaps to a regular kit, but you would not be able, even with the latin kit, to add a percussion track to a song. You may try to load another instance of the program (not on 32bit anyways) but you will be out of a suitable MIDI track for this.
This is a pity because they have the multi-layered samples there.
Let me know anybody if you achieved that.
Edit: I should mention that I have tried to enter some polyrithmic african stuff. To make them sound real (so that every beat sounds different to the ear) you have to go to town on the player. I have tried a full blown sample player and it still sounded machine-y. I deciced to go and buy a bell, a few shakers and similar toys. Those instruments are probably even more problematic to MIDI-fy than normal drums.
