[Feature Request] Improvements on drums positioning system

[Feature Request] Improvements on drums positioning system

Postby rtbpini » Wed Dec 30, 2015 2:02 pm

Hi, Thanks for the support to Aerodrums.

I would like to suggest a feature improvement.

The current method to position the drums and cymbals is not exactly easy to use. I would suggest two different methods of doing that:
- Add a drag functionality to the positioning system, so the user is able to see where the drum or cymbal is being positioned (something like what you see is what you get);
or
- Add a functionality to position the drums in the software, via mouse. This would make easier the position of larger drumkits.

Please let me know your thoughts on that.

Thanks!
Regards and Happy New Year!

Thanks for the suggestion. The idea of using the mouse to select and drag drums around on the screen would make a lot of sense if it wasn't for the fact that the drums have a position in 3D space, not 2D. That's why, in the current version, we require you to use a drum stick for positioning since it has a 3D position, unlike the mouse. That said, we're aware of the problem and we do have some ideas for adding a mouse-based visual interface to make positioning of drums easier.
