I wish for: snapshots in AUM

@j_liljedahl , if you’re reading this, one feature I’d love to see in AUM, since it’s a mixer, is the ability to store and record snapshots of all the settings and levels of anything on a channel or globally.

This way I could set up a standard mix setup, set everything to my default, muck around, jam, etc, and then return to a default state, or maybe set a few good sounding snapshots that I can recall.

It seems to me this would be in line with a typical use case for AUM..

I’d pay for an iap for this extra feature btw...

  • My word, what a brilliant idea. +100000. This would be soooo good.

    I would like to be able to store window sizes and configurations.

    EDIT: Ignore this / OT Bullshit

  • Isn't that what "Save" does?

  • at least that's what I used the save feature for... ;)

    But then "load" kills everything and reloads everything. I think the idea here is to store/recall settings on the fly.

    Just posted this on the Mozaic Script post ..

    OK, I think I'm getting the idea :)

    Hm.. In case i am fooling around here, but isn’t the “import” function made for things like this? You can import individual “lanes” like this - does this kill everything also?

    Or is the “Session Load” or “Preset Load” not intended for this?

    Maybe the use-cases are too widespread here...dunno.

    I like the idea of just storing/recalling mixer settings and not having to actually mess with AU memory as that makes things potentially unstable and flakey. I think it makes total sense as a performance element. Having a slider for 'blend time' at the bottom of the screen and then a bunch of A/B/C/etc buttons so you can choose a recall state and either have it kick in immediately or do a slower transition... that's good eatin'!

    PS. ignore my 'window state snapshot' OT bullshit , that should be a different thread.

  • Agree on that blend stuff, @AudioGus
    But i think AUM is “too open” to get that implemented just right for nearly everyone. Would support it though, only i think it is very difficult to do.

    Just AUM mixer parameter settings? not thinking AU paramters, just anything native AUM. Not midi hookups etc.

    Probably for a different thread, but I was thinking the exact same thing yesterday. Especially since using lots of midi apps like Atom, Mozaic, KB-1 and Rozeta, I'm constantly dragging things around and resizing, so "window snapshots" that saved the layout and sizes would be great.

    (mo' OT...and an auto arrange button that would scale all the open AUs to fit on screen at once.)

  • I would also like the ability to duplicate midi au’s, too, in the same way you can do with audio and bus tracks.

    AU windows drive me mental.

    This sounds like a good idea. I'm still kind of blown away by how reckless I can be with AUM without losing my work. :)

    +1 vote for snapshots in AUM. For now, since I control AUM from MidiDesigner (for a more compact view), I use MD’s snapshot features.

  • Yes, snapshots has been on my TODO list for years actually :)

    Yes, this. Resizing windows can be a bit tiresome when re-opening sessions.

    At least based on my yesterday test, the window sizes are remembered, at least during the session (not sure about situation when loading session later). But the window positions are not remembered, which would be super useful if you're used to have 2 (or more) AUs opened, e.g. MIDI generator and instrument, or instrument and fx and play around with both. When you then close both windows, switch to another ones and want to go back, one overlaps the other and you need to again position them as you wish...

  • Yes, in session, window sizes are fine. I mean when you restart AUM and open a saved project.

    So what kind of bribe will it take to make it a reality? 😉
