  • Project reload - Easy to implement, goldmine for playing live

    while I am preparing the sets for this year (even when its not gonna be much ) I figured a very easy to implement feature with an incredible usefulness:

    I need an ability to reload a project as soon as something has changed.
    its basically only the load button being able to be used to load the same project I'm in - while playing.

    why? imagine using the eqs, mixing, effects inside a break or a situation during live-play where a bold performer wants to go but needing to dial everything back to where it was is basically impossible. yeah, of course you can map everything to a midi controller but then you need more space and another piece of gear.
    instead: just a click to the project button and an even quickier push to "load" (or maybe call it "reload" then?) and you're back in the saved state. and with save I also mean "safe" state.

    its like the "function + no" function on the elektrons, or ableton live's ability to jump back to a certain state with the touch of an assigned button.

    easy to implement (I suppose) but very, very useful. I mean, the will make the difference between a small and good sounding mixer with record function and a real performance tool for me!

    give me thumps up to help make them implement it!!

    Absolutely, this would make the bluebox being playable instead of a set up and forget box. The x y pads for the effects could be also set up for more momentary control, so that they fall/set back to the original state when the pad is not touched.

      Similar to the save(current state) and reload functions on most Elektron boxes. But in this case even just the reload function would be very useful for performing.

        I would love this feature

          "easy to implement" is a huge assumption there. It will depend on whether the box had enough free ram to hold two complete sets of params. Shouldn't be too much, but I wouldn't assume it

            yeah, you're right - its an assumption, especially without knowing the hardware specs. but from the software and logic side its not magic at all while practically it would make a huge difference.
