Swing is based on triplets. Simply set the grid to 16th note triplets and you have swing or shuffle.
I'm not going to bother adding my requests anymore. It's obvious that Vegas will never be a DAW. I've begged for MIDI and tempo mapping long enough. The last time I was chastised and told Acid is the MIDI app., well it wasn't. When Acid 5 came out and I expressed my displeasure I was told what I thought all along. "Acid's a loop app., what did you expect?"
I've been syncing Vegas and Sonar via MIDI clock for years. I've not upgraded to V 5 as I don't use a control surface nor feel the need to. I'm old school but as a drummer/keyboardist embraced the PC paradigm in the early '80s, I'm very comfortable with the mouse and keyboard, hence I didn't upgrade. I have no real need for Rewire either. I may be in the minority, so be it and I still love and use Vegas daily for both audio and video but I just don't see a compelling reason to move beyond V 4 at this point. I hope I'm wrong with the next release however.
I knew Acid was a loop app., something I have no use for. The fact is Acid and/nor Vegas does a DAW make.
Pipe listed the heavy duty functionality stuff, I'll just dito that, and add:
* a new look to the interface. Not change the basics, but look at Samplitude and others. Why not add a mixer and freshen up the look so it feels more pro.
PLEASE Don't change the look & feel of the GUI in V6 and more specifically; Do not look at Samplitude and make it look anything like that crap.
Every time I am forced to open up Sequoia to export a DDP image, I want to throw up, because the interface is repulsive and looks like something that was designed in the 50s.
Could you imagine the USS Enterprise having two fisted Broadcast Neve roller pods for controller functions? That's what Samplitude and Sequoia make me think of; A bleek retro future. Very ugly, fragmented and totally non-intuitive.
Mr Phil, most of us prefer the old look - V5 is already starting to look like a toy. Samplitude has now gone the whole hog with eye-candy, sadly. I don't think that looks 'professional' in the slightest, and if you think visual emulations of a mixer is where we should be heading, then you've missed the point of what is so great about Vegas !
Yeah, this looks very pro and intuitive... Vegas5
A bullseye, followed by something, followed by a green thing, followed by a cogwheel, followed by a roadsign, followed by an exclamation mark. All very logical (?)
As opposed to this: Nuendo Sonar4
that all just looks like the hardware interface from a studio mixer.
"most of us prefer the old look"
Well that's one of the problems there, "most of us" ain't many enough to make Vegas a top seller. Howcome?
And the V5-look, described by you as a toy-look, is not the way I mean it should go. Please explain why a visual emulation of a mixer is so wrong to be able to use IF YOU WANT, when all other pro and semi-pro applications for MTR has it?
I mean, if anyone like Tmr or anyone else barfs on his computer when he sees one, or if anyone feel totally lost when they see a mixer, well don't use it. It's not like todays interface would disappear (but preferably with a new set of buttons/icons), the mixer would be an addition.
I'm talking bout the look, not the scrolling. You can have one without the other.
And I thought I was perfectly clear when I said that the mixer should be an addition to the present UI, not replacing it. That, and clean up their stupid icons they use today, and polish the look.
"Vegas is not a mixer. Mixers can have things plugged into them at will in nearly any configuration. Mixers have throughpout in real time, without worrying about CPU, latency, and routing restrictions.
So instead you use RME's TotalMix, which by the way is a computer program emulating a mixer, giving you the above.
