Because I’m using Moncha most of the time as Live player, I’m not realy familiar with the Show player right now. 8)
I have a few questions about it:
To make shows it would very useful to see the actual position at the timeline. So, is it possible to visualize the red thin preview line during playback? For example, the preview line is in the centre of the timeline and the tracks “are moving under” this preview line. (Line is standing still and the tracks are moving) Or Tracks are standing still and preview is moving.
At the right side of the the show area we see the ‘scale’ of the timeline in seconds. Is there room on the timeline to add the some seconds near the ‘long hairs’? For example, at 10, 20,30, 40, …. seconds from beginning. This will give a better overview during programming.

1. The reason we have it disabled in Fiesta is because it took too much processor time. And I’m not sure, it will be better with Moncha. But will think about, I know, it is a good for a better orientation.
2. Yes, this is good idea.
Right now our development is Fiesta – oriented, because we have upcoming exhibition in Frankfurt and we have quite big enhancement for this software.

Is there a possibility to improve the idea and draw some time information near the time lines? Currently there is like each second with longer line depending on level of zoom but if you zoom out it’s hard to count what time is in what position in the timeline. It could adapt to the level of zoom and draw only some key time info, like when zoomed to 10s there would be 0:01, 0:02… (each second) and with zoom to 30s perhaps to 0:05, 0:10… (each 5 seconds) or so. Not very dense, just for orientation.
You can see the current time when you drag the red line but this would give you a quick overview on where in the timeline you are.August 30, 2009 at 10:44 am #944Anonymous
Also is there a possibility to add a feature to Copy/Paste scenes in show editor? Like i create a sequence of scenes synchronized to melody for let’s say 16 beats but after that i have to do the sync all over again manually, if i could just copy the scenes and paste them at the startpoint of next 16 beats that would save a lot of work. Same goes for cloning of scenes, you have to drag them to the timeline each time but if i just could insert one and then copy paste it that would be quicker.September 3, 2009 at 8:04 am #945Anonymous
Yes, of course it is possible. Please check the Edit menu in Moncha. You can copy/paste scenes between the banks and you can also copy/paste events in show.

Great, thanks for advice, this will speed up the creation process by 200% 😀October 18, 2009 at 12:11 pm #952Anonymous
Greetings, after some time me again with a question. Is it possible to implement a feature where Moncha will remember the audio track chosen in the synchronizer? It happens to me that i preview part of the show with audio, then switch back to clock synchronizer as the chopping sound after each move in the timeline is disturbing and then if i want to switch back to the audio, i have to browse for the audio track again. If it remembered the last chosen audio track until i browse for another, it would help.October 23, 2009 at 10:54 am #955Anonymous
And why do you switch back to clock synchronizer?

Well as i wrote before, when you work with the cue in audio synchro mode each time you move the red timeline you hear pieces of choppy sounds from the track and once you position the timeline at specific point it’ll play a few seconds of the track. That’s kind of disturbing when i move back and forth in the track to see what effect is used and how does it look like. If it’s not clear i can try to grab it into a short video with sound for better imagination.October 26, 2009 at 7:57 am #959Anonymous
Yes, I think I understand. You just want to be able to turn off the music preview when moving in time line. Maybe some sound volume control directly in Moncha would help?

yes, maybe some button like Turn music off or something like that next to the synchro button, i guess there’s still some place for it =)October 26, 2009 at 1:43 pm #961Anonymous
Well I was more thinking about making some slider for sound-card volume … sometimes when you do some show, it could be quite handy..

yes this is a good idea, i can see your point
