I find myself occasionally loading a track that I have no intention of beat mixing, but forgetting that unless or until you choose to disable sync - it remains on. It also increases the range of the speed change/slider allowed automatically. So I may go over to a new song, and it’s playing at like 30% slowed down or sped up. If I set that range to + or - 10%, I don’t want my controller increasing that on its own.
I’d like an option in the settings that says “reset sync and speed on track load”. I think this should apply to the pitch slider as well, so that your song is at it’s normal speed regardless where the slider is upon load - and you just move it back to center, or wherever the pitch adjustment is if you hit “sync”, to latch onto the track there.
I’d also love a setting that won’t allow auto sync to override the range set for the pitch slider. So if the song I loaded would have to exceed the currently set range in order to sync, it could start flashing the sync button as a warning that the song is not and cannot be synced. Then I can choose if I want to change my pitch range.
This is always how I set things up in my previous software/midi controller setup, so I’m just used to actively hitting sync and then making adjustments as necessary with the slider when I’m mixing. Perhaps I’ll get used to having to turn things off, instead of on…but it seems like an easy firmware update to let people choose if they’d rather things be on or off whenever you load a track.
