I really do like DopplerPad from the Retronyms. It is without a doubt a great app, but even so, there’s always something that can do with an update and an improvement here or there. So I thought I’d put down a few thoughts on what I’d like to see come into this app.
- An iPad version. Whether it is a universal or a completely separate version of DopplerPad I think that it would be brilliant if it were native to the iPad.
- Multi project support, this is almost more important than an iPad version of the app. It would be so useful to be able to call up separate projects and work on them in DopplerPad, and even be able to move patterns from one project to another.
- Remove the last instrument or a commit button. I don’t know how many times I’ve been working on a pattern in DopplerPad and recorded it only to then think that I didn’t like the last thing I added. Of course it is possible to work around this, and I do understand that DopplerPad’s recording is more like overdubbing than layering separate tracks, but some form of last action undo would be wonderful.
See, it isn’t a long list, but I think that each of those is probably a fair amount of work though. Do you have any burning issues for DopplerPad? Comment them in if you do.
