first, 1.4 is quite an update, thank you.
a new feature was added to the loop control in 1.4. (* added ability to manually adjust loop in and out points via platter control.) this is useful but i don’t see why it needed to replace existing functionality.
in the new scheme, once a loop is active the in/out buttons simply toggle the adjust mode with the platter. the way it was before, in and out were hot and set the points wherever clicked. so you could do loop play, like a stutter where you’re rapidly entering/tightening/exiting loops for effect. (hard to keep sync on a beat but useful for syncopating a pad or vocal or such.)
i’ve been playing with that technique for a long time on various setups - the one on the prime series was perfect. the buttons and layout have a great feel where you can just rock back and forth on your wrist to get a feel into the loop. after the update, you can’t set in/out while looping and you have to hit autoloop to exit. it’s no longer a performance feature.
i realize there are lots of us (also me) who wanted to be able to slide the in/out points for a more precise loop or for loop buildup fx or whatever. but i don’t see why we couldn’t have both. the previous functionality was good and we should do something else to toggle the adjust mode. could be shift+in/out to toggle or hold in/out to adjust. i think there are several ways it could be done without disrupting existing features.
