Hi everybody. First time here! Here’s my take on things:
The system should be as user friendly, yet flexible as possible. Building a custom kit within the app is a prime goal. I’m not too concerned about finely adjusting positions, as suggested elsewhere, but I would love to have a choice between 3 snares, 2 kicks, 4 toms etc…
Saving such a kit as a user preset would be awesome. Then a left-handed kit could be custom built and saved (as preset 2) for my weird left-handed buddy.
I feel that tying the app to other apps (GarageBand etc…) only invites complexity and confusion.
As it stands, the Sensor ware app is fairly confusing about left/right hand switching. This all could be scrapped with custom kits!
Secondly, I feel that the left foot should control high-hat position (like normal) if possible.
Third, once sensors have initially been registered with the app, from then on could they all connect automatically at the same time? Individual connection is cumbersome.
Finally, it would be nice if the documentation could be a little more idiot-friendly (for me) in terms of the calibration modes of sticks. I understand the initial calibration, but ‘pausing every so often’ needs to be explained more fully so users can get the most out of the system.
My selfish demands are done now.
Overall, I’m loving the concept. Very exciting. The sensors appear to work pretty well. I feel the user experience can only be enhanced with software tweaks. I fully realize that this is a system still in development, so will have patience. It’s tough though
