The only thing in the update which doesn’t work for me.
@giku I’ve posted about this in the AB Forum but was advised that the best way to get feedback seen by you was to post here instead.
I love to use Drambo and it gets better and better with every update - thanks. This latest update has introduced something which doesn’t work for me though.
There is now a system in place to decide whether the note names are displayed on active sequencer steps or not based on display size and number of bars shown.
I can see the logic of it for sure - it makes sense if you have many, many bars displayed to not show the note names - but, in my opinion, the implementation needs refining or, ideally, the feature needs to be optional from the settings. Currently it’s a bit too eager to not show the note names on my device even though there is seemingly enough space to do so.
On my iPad 9th Generation in portrait format it won’t show note names if there’s anything more than one bar shown…since the device width is as much as an iPhone in landscape format, that seems a bit extreme. Maybe my device is just the awkward inbetween size where the new implementation doesn’t quite work or seem to make sense?
I know you can tap on the bars (in the central pattern display next to the transport buttons) to display them individually and therefore, in my case, have the note names displayed but that seems like an unfortunate workflow obstacle to introduce.
Hopefully you will see this feedback and consider refining the feature or making it optional? It is, after all, really useful to see the note names displayed. I’m a huge admirer of Drambo and love to use it but I’ve got to be honest and say that this, for me personally, decreases the user workflow experience rather than improving it. Everything else, amazing!
