It is more complicated than it looks. I will respond in a bit. Warwick is visiting me today!Dear Roger, my intention was not to hurt your company or directly you.
I have invested around 2500 euros in SA hardware, not counting the PC or Mobile that are shared between my other usages, and the next C4 buy (which could push to add a 3rd hub), that’s clearly not 100 k$.
But where come from this 100 k$ value ?
Because the concept I explained does not need so much change.
My intention is absolutely not create any conflict but just a proposal to improve User Interface in Neuro Desktop with a new view for an easier scenes management, certainly nothing that would lead to any firmware change in hub, One Series pedals or Soleman (which already works as I am explaining).
Sorry but I do not understand how a new layer of user interface could generate a 100k project.
My suggestion is a basic conceptual change in data organization making scene not depending on hub but hubs depending on scenes. Simply.
I am sure that implementing it won’t generate more than one month x man work to adapt the actual code this way an everybody would benefit from it.
You could keep the existing hub views.
But add a global scene view.
I just pushed this idea to support your effort to stay leader on the market segment you choose regarding the huge skills of your small team (Bob, Jesse, Nathan and you, sorry if I forget someone and thanks to every one), certainly not the same as the last BOSS SY-1 or EHX.
Your products are more powerful but they show their full power when we start the Neuro Desktop App, for sure you will sell C4 and One Series for people just wanting to use the buttons on their surface (no disrespect in my words, I understand the concept and the various choices to make music, it’s not actually mine may be an error, future will tell) but in this area the concurrence is high (Boss, EHX and even smaller companies as SA) and gaining new users is not easy AND EXPENSIVE.
I have already said that I am ready to pay for a 'Neuro Desktop Pro', with extended management features more powerful than those on a classical and free Neuro Desktop.
Please don’t misbehave, every time and everywhere I can, I support your products in my language area of influence.
I really appreciate all the communication energy you put in this forum (and others I don’t follow), as said privately before I have been working on CRM concepts (being an adept of Paul Greensberg ‘s 'CRM at the speed of light', where he explained in 2007 that successful companies will design their new products exchanging concepts with their customers). And I know the effort you need to deploy. It makes a real positive difference with your concurrents.
I could create some pictures to explain my concept for managing the Scenes (through not only 2 but certainly 3 hubs for me after C4) in a global View, just a new kind of View without the physical separation of physical devices, containing all the effects connected to all hubs, without boring with hub management as it will be done in the background as can do the computer magic. It will be self-explanatory.
Last point, this concept will allow transparent migration from actual hub to a next generation later.
