Are The Better iOS apps More Intuitive Than Desktop?
I have no experience with desktop and I am not trying to start a debate between the two. I would just like to know if others share my experience. I rarely use a manual and most non acoustic apps are rather inexplicable to me at first. Yet, if I leave them alone and return once in a while, each app seems to reveal itself in a very intuitive way. SpaceCraft is a perfect example. I hadn’t a clue how to use it, import sounds, play it as an instrument, adjust parameters, etc. I managed to route a static track to Cubasis early on, liked it and went no further. Yet when I returned to it a few days ago suddenly it made a lot more sense to me. I imported a couple of tracks I had made previously and I could play it as a melody instrument.
So what is going on? And do desktop users have similar experiences? I tend to think that the intuitiveness must be built in by the dev (Cubasis is another great example). Also, that my personal experience is the gradual accumulation of the pieces of the puzzle, tho I still can’t get midi out and midi in, no matter how often it is explained! It seems midi in means midi out and vice versa!
