I’m not gonna jump in with a “Right there man! You’ve proved my point!”
You mentioned that you still can’t export a history list back to a laptop. So, that’s your hot potato , that’s something that you’re waiting for. It’s not written up on the description of the SC5000 or Engine Prime that either of them would ever offer the option to do that thing that you want. I can see it being a feature that two guys talking about the Primes and Engine Prime before it’s release would say “has it got that?” And the other saying “dunno , oh it’s just gotta have it - I’ll buy it anyway without checking even though it’s not mentioned anywhere”
However for you, that’s a “basic” feature that you feel this, and lots of other things, “should” have.
Other people haven’t asked for your basic feature, they’ve asked for their basic feature, a different basic feature.
And I think a lot of people have done that, especially with beat grids. It does say beatgrids on the sales blurb but it doesn’t say the beatgrids are movable, metronom-able, warping, morphing or anything else for that matter, it just says it’s got beatgrids, and it has. What people think some can do with a beatgrid is just their “take” on that feature too.
It’s not wrong to want
It’s not wrong to request
It’s not wrong to wish for
But some people expect
Some people loose the big dividing chasm between a want and a demand
It’s like when some girl comes up to the booth and REQUESTS a particular song but later comes back and shouts in your face and. chicks her drink over you and your mixer coz you haven’t played her REQUEST yet.
Or it’s like me buying a car with an advertised miles per gallon of 40mpg then yelling at the garage a year later demanding an engine management system update coz I think that by now they should have been able to get 70mpg out of it somehow just coz its new and I paid x thousand for it and coz some other cars advertise 70mpg
I’ve put in my request (I wanted the Engine Prime 100,000 track limit per library to be increased) but I’m not saying that I want it done by 10 days time or posting pictures of an egg timer to show that I’ve been waiting x (or should that be eggs) minutes already for MY BASIC THING to be added NOW. I’ve made the request, I’ve said my bit, if the library size gets increased at some point in the future then that’s nice. But I won’t be packing the units up and off to my stockist if I don’t get gold telegrams every week and a Times Square countdown on when it’s gonna be ready.
