In general, I like the features coming to Synthesizer V in version 1.9.0, but something about Pitch Mode really bothers me.
(Pitch Mode pictured below for clarity’s sake)
The new “Pitch Mode” feature defaults to “Sing” mode. Always. Personally, I think that if any mode should be default, it ought to be “Manual” mode! I understand why “Sing” being the default is sensible for many users.
However— “Sing” as default, does not work for every situation. For instance:
- You’re covering a song and making the svp from scratch, therefore focusing on inputting correct lyrics first.
- You already tuned most of the track and now you are just experimenting with adding breaths and other ornamentations in, but you don’t want to change the pitch bends anymore.
- This track is mostly or exclusively made up of rap verses.
- Making unrealistic vocals. You’ll have to select everything and reset the pitch as you go.
I wish you could set the preferred mode for new notes on a track by track basis. Maybe ‘right click’ on the track in the arrangement panel, and select from Manual, Sing, or Rap, for instance. Or there could be new buttons added near the track name, or singer name. Anybody else agree with this idea? Or have a better idea?
Honestly I wouldn’t even mind if it was simply changed such that “Manual” mode is the default, since you can also quickly change the tuning with ctrl + r, but currently my workflow gets slowed down by needing to get off of “Sing” mode every time I make a new note.
Otherwise good update.
…btw, I see the notice on the forum about emailing support. Anyone know if that’s just for bugs or do they also want this type of feedback?
