I thought I’d put together a list of the things I’d love to see in Bhajis Loops. Stuff I think would be wonderful if it made it into a new version. I know that there’s little or no chance of that as development has mostly finished. Even so, it is worth stating these ideas.
– Audio support : I’d love to have support for maybe one or two audio channels alongside the sampled instruments. I’d even considere upgrading to a LifeDrive to support audio
– Synth plugins : Having the ability to use FM synthesis plugins to create instruments
– Pre-Fade send
– More effect plugins
– A desktop tool (for Mac OSX) for creating effect plugins and synth plugins (ambitious I know, but then it is a wishlist)
When I started writing this I thought I had loads of stuff and ideas, but what do you know, only a few. Anyway if you have other ideas then please comment them in.
Musical collaboration is an area that always interests me. I like the idea that people can collaborate over the internet by sending files back and forth and sharing ideas. I’ve done this myself, and it is interesting.
I like the idea of the “Snowball” in Griff where people would add to a track and build it up. The collaboration site for Bhajis Loops has had a bit of interest, but not too much, which is a shame.
Some time ago there was talk of the ability to use bluetooth in Bhajis loops as a way of keeping two devices in sync. I’ve had this thought in my head for a while, and on some levels it seems like a fun way to collaborate, but I think there are other ways that would be even more interesting.
I have this idea in my head that you could be sitting on the bus one day going to work and as usual you’ve got your headphones on working on your next bhajis masterpiece. All of a sudden you get an alert that tells you someone is trying to collaborate with you on your tune, and do you want to let them?
You don’t know who it is on the bus, but it doesn’t matter. For the next thirty minutes you work together then stop and you both have the tune on your palms.
I know it is a bit of a pipe dream, and unrealistic as there is just not the Bhajis user base for something like that to happen, but it is a fun idea nevertheless.
