More on CoGe 1.3 – Sliders, sliders, and wait… sliders!

Posted on: April 20th, 2012

Sliders for setting Current Value syncing-source on a Sequencer

Here we go, an other teaser-ish post for the weekend, about some lightweight improvements in the upcoming CoGe 1.3, and all related to sliders. Because I love sliders, you know? 🙂

Facts:

  • Sliders in CoGe 1.3 displays their current value with numbers on the right side.
  • Sliders can invert their controlling value in CoGe 1.3. This means if you turning a MIDI knob assigned to the slider tothe right for example, the slider will turn to the left – if inverting is enabled.

  • There are new sliders on Sequencers,  for sending values also with a trigger. Other sliders can use this value as a syncing-source.
  • A special new slider is available for Player modules which can talkback with the QC composition – in other words, a Player module can control it. Very useful for displaying and controlling movie files playhead.

That’s all folk, for now! Next week I’ll show you the big hitters in CoGe 1.3!

 

CoGe 1.3 and Media Banks

See the Media Bank buttons above the Media Slots

Since the release of the new 1.3 version of CoGe is pretty close, it’s time to release some informations about the upcoming release.

CoGe 1.3 will be a huge and very important release, over 20 new features and many bug-fixes – as always some of changes and features are bigger, and some are lesser.  Can’t say any promising about the exact release date yet, but around end of April or start of May. As always, its a free update for existing customers. The official website will get a new dress as well, but its an other story.

I start  leaking information now, by introducing one of the new features of the upcoming CoGe 1.3 : Media Banks.

The facts on Media Banks:

  • Media Banks are group of Media Slot contents
  • A Media Bank holds content for 16 Media Slots
  • Each ClipSynths have 16 Media Banks
  • Switching between Media Banks is just a click
  • Switching between Media Banks is fast
  • Switching between Media Banks just replaces the content on the Media Slots, won’t mess around Key/MIDI/OSC bindings

That’s all. Its a simple, but a very useful thing. Hard to explain it more in text – see it in action in the following little demo video:

Hint: there are some other new things in the video – if you pay attention to the details.

 

That’s all, folks – for now!
