To me, it's all about getting the now time, the start play time and, start record time where I want it in the quickest way possible. However, we don't always set nor want to set a marker. In fact, we don't always know when we need a marker. So, how about if when a user hovers over a clip, a pop-up appears that lets a user choose to move the start time to that clip's start time? Or let the user right click on a clip and have an option to 'Make this the Now Time'.
I acknowledge that I can create a template that has Session Drummer in it with the kit I want, so that's ready to go on a track. However, there are times when I'm working on a tune and realize I've got a new idea that uses some other instruments or audio effects in the existing project. So, instead of creating a new file, and having to add all that other stuff in, I just use the file (project) I'm in and save it with a new name. However, that doesn't mean the kit in the existing project is the one I am using or want. But by allowing me to have a default kit I'd previously chosen, I just need to click insert Session Drummer and I'm good to go. In fact, maybe Session Drummer could show my top three kits when it's opened, then I don't have to open a folder like Acoustic and choose the kit. Instead, I just click on one of my fav drum kits showing as options when Session Drummer opens.
How about letting users export the Tempo List as a Tempo Map? I'm talking 3 steps: 1) Click Export, 2) Give an option to choose Tempo Map, 3) Press Okay or Save. Meanwhile, I'm trying to collaborate with someone who uses Pro Tools and he requested a tempo map. But I'm not seeing that within Cakewalk. I thought exporting a MIDI file Type 0 would include tempo shifts. And while it seems to do that, the end result is clunky. I chose my MIDI drum track. And even though the drums don't start until measure 7, I dragged the MID clip to the start of the song....meaning the clip starts at zero and shows no MIDI notes until measure 7. But guess what: The exported MIDI file places the start of the song at measure 7. That didn't make me look good or make what I provided user friendly. After the fact, I see I could have said the tempo starts at 120, then at measure 20 changes to 100, then at 50 changes to 85, and finally at 100 goes back to 120. But do I really have to do that?!?
