I believe he is a great DSP coder, Reason and ReBirth were ahead of everything else at one point, the results speak for themselves. The reason I brought this up was unlike the usual devices Scenic seems a bit too cookie cutter, like it was designed by committee in response to trends, mainly recent NI devices.JiggeryPokery wrote: ↑06 Oct 2019Why ask? If he had coded it, would that fact alone suddenly make something that's a bit pants therefore great? People need to get off this "Pelle is a genius" nonsense that RS still actually believe (see Hanna's recent Compact blog post) . I've worked with three wonderful coders on several of my products. He's a very talented DSP coder, absolutely, produced some great devices for Reason (and the CF101, lest we forget) but only like many other equally talented DSP coders out there.
In audio terms, like Quartet Chorus Ensemble (with its misleading "BBD" button label that's either based on a fundamental misunderstanding on what an ensemble chorus is or, more likely, wilfully misleading in order to undermine the superior and actual BBD-modelling of Chenille (and Quartet perhaps explains why I was refused trial resets for my BBD devices over the summer, which further reveals the conflict of interest between RS the content producers and RS the third party host: clearly they either did not want to risk more people buying Chenille at a discount to reduce the potential value Quartet had to an upgrade, or RS are simply incompetent and forgot to do it and it proves RS simply do not care about dev support, and it's not like they had the usual full summer shut down this year, they didn't, likely because of the Reason 11 deadline)) Scenic is almost certainly an IDT/GE-based device, so likely uses the exact same modules and FX as every other IDT/GE-based device. The Gui control scripting is fairly straightforward although anything involving a matrix is never simple, while the display coding to operate linear faders in two dimensions, as fieldframe points out, is a little more fiddly. And according to another commentator in a private chat I had, it's perhaps worse than fieldframe notes, as he pointed out that by using them stacked in concentric circles, each Modifier inwards has increasingly lower resolution for the control's precision; it's purely style over function (yet I still do not think those led lamps even fit the design, as they're too old fashioned for the overall modern styling).
It was always known when the store opened that they’d be potential conflicts of interest between RS and RE developers. But honestly in this case I see no reason how Chenille could influence potential upgrade decisions. You could argue the same for Europa and Expanse. But I fully understand your frustrations with the way store decisions are being handled. There seems to be changes going on behind the scenes with the new leadership and ownership. Maybe Rack Extensions aren’t seen as drivers for revenue growth going forward by Verdane.
