@dougmiller3699 We'll have our engineers take a look at this. I suspect it has to do with the way the groove plays out and how it mitigates particular drum samples as you switch between hit articulations. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
Can be duplicated after the pattern that's being duplicated if will be support for selection of multi tracks.
Master Volume sounds goot but if will be directly on each pattern at Song Editor section.
OK. But support for selection of multi tracks will do a job with fill this empty place.
I don't want editor like in DAW but simply slice or althoug possiblity move an audio track without snaping because can't set it equall with drum track for now.
@Nick-Evans I appreciate you sharing with us your overall thoughts on X Drummer. There are indeed some issues with the app, all of which our engineering team is working on to address them very soon. Since the release of the 1.5 update back in mid December, we've already released several updates to implement some of the changes that were suggested by the community. As indicated by these recent improvements that we've been putting out recently, we are fully committed to X Drummer. We'll continue to document every feedback that we receive and put out updates regularly to ensure that the product is always well-maintained.
As mentioned in your feedback, one big issue that's currently bogging down the user experience is the auto save function. Our engineering team is already looking to implement a few changes to correct it in the upcoming update. I would have to check with our engineering staff, but the issue with the duplicate function might have to be addressed in a separate update to minimize the risk of introducing new bugs.
The addition of a MIDI editor would allow for more control over drum editing, but our intent is to provide a drum production software that's easy to use for guitarists (and iOS musicians) of all levels. If a MIDI editor is strongly requested (which hasn't been the case thus far), we will have a discussion with our UX team for their input.
The Tap to Find feature was later omitted when we made the entire pattern library available in our development for the 1.5 update. The reason being that we discovered it was not a feature that was often used by our users. Also taking into the fact that it was not as matured as we had hoped to be, it was decided best to move away from it altogether. Again, if the community expresses a need to bring the Tap to Find feature back, then we'll reassess our available resources and make the best decision from there.
@Mark-Bether We'll take a look at refining the Fine-tune feature with the UX team. Although volume control for each individual drums/crymbals can be found in the Drum kit page, I agree that a volume control at the Fine-tune screen can be intuitive and provide a more well-rounded experience in editing drum grooves. Is there anything else you would to add to X Drummer?
@mark-bether Thanks for the reply and graphic, very helpful!
As I mentioned, I experimented after posting and was able to record my guitar track via Cubasis as IAA into song editor as well. Although a bit tricky, combining play to find and song editor can work.
This is how I'd like it to work; import (not play live or via IAA) a track into play to find, it provides drum track selections with correct bmp, add the drum tracks to song editor and then import the same guitar track into song editor. Maybe there's even an option in play to find that will automatically place your guitar track into song editor thus not having to import it again or have to record it. This could even work if your playing directly into play to find via a connected interface.
I like the fact that play to find gives you suggested drum tracks that can be used in song editor. If I only use song editor along with the recorded track, I have to go through hundreds of patterns to get what I want which can be fun but time consuming. Play to find narrows things down and points me in a general pattern/genre that I can go to and find alternative patterns to experiment with.
@trickchick Awesome, glad to hear that it's been inspiring you play and come up with new ideas. We've been getting some feedback on the loop function. We'll be taking a look at improving it in a later update. For now I'd suggest to zoom in on the Song Editor to set the loop length so the ends align much easier. Awesome stuff, please do share with us if you decide to make more videos : )
Hi ben.lee. Yes I know that one can export MIDI and import the data into Cubasis.
But when I’m running Cubasis I can‘t listen to Xdrummer anymore. That‘s why I would like to see an AU-Version of XDrummer
@skipneumann1 First off, Happy New Year! In the past several months, our efforts were mainly focused on the X Drummer 1.5 update that was just released last December. We do have other projects already lined up for this year, so if we do decide to make a desktop version of it, we'll make sure to announce it on our social channels! Thanks : )
@walter-d I just ran some tests with the Blues 06 pack, you can hear a difference between 1/2 and 1/4 open positions. The difference is subtle but it's there. It might require you to listen back using a pair of headphones/earphones.
Regarding volume for each instrument, volume levels for each instrument are preserved if I make any adjustments using the Fine-tune function. Is this what you're trying to do?
As for project management, our team is currently taking another look at it to change it so that it also saves the drum kit within the project.
Yeah its taking me a minute to get used to but there are some really cool metal drums I'm just trying to figure out how to put it together. One song I couldn't find any cool drums for I ended up using the intro drum patch and just had it playing over and over again cuz it was a really cool drum roll that I like to plan a rift to. You'll figure it out it's all cut and paste
@sascha-ballweg Got it. If disabling Low Latency Mode option reduces the crackling issue then I would next suggest that you kill all other apps that are running in the background to save resource. Also, try restarting your iPad as well.
By the way, please send your findings in the email chain that we started. Let's avoid losing vital info to our investigation by keeping everything in one place. Thanks.
Thanks Leon for breaking the ice! I agree that the ability to edit and create your own MIDI grooves can be a huge plus to X Drummer, but our goal is to provide an app that will help cut down the time and effort needed to come up a drum track. We wanted to dissect and simplify what we've known about drum production and MIDI grooves, and provide a software for the iPad that's easy to use. As you mentioned, patterns in 3/4 and 8/12 are limited (although there are 3/4 patterns in the "80s Pop" IAP), we are working on providing new Jazz and Blues MIDI grooves that will help diversify the collection that X Drummer currently features.
I appreciate the continue support despite some of its shortcomings, but we're very proud of what we were able to improve upon in the 1.5 update. If you have any other thoughts or suggestions, please do let us know!
