Requests for future releases...(wishlist)

I'm not sure if you really care to take the time, but figured it wouldn't hurt to have a little wishlist of things that would be cool in VDL.

- "modern" piper snares
- duts
- "Dr. Beat" samples
- snare backsticking or playing with the butts
- two different pitches of 6" drums on tenors
- 8" tenor samples

Take it for what it is worth.

Just thoughts that were going through my head today. A very cool product "as is".

The red jam block is already on there. It's in the tenor voicings as high jam block (or woodblock).

SCV doesn't march a 16" bass, so that's why there isn't a sound for it. Same reason for the small tenors.[/quote]

I guess I didn't look hard enough for the block.

Not including the higher drums seems like a huge mistake to me. That is limiting this product to people that have the exact same drum sizes and tuning as SCV. With something of this obvious quality, it seems like they would want to make it usefull to wide range of composers. I for one didn't buy it to have SCV sounds, but to have realistic marching sounds.
How about solo tenor and snare?

[quote="bassplate"]you can, with finale you just need to edit the map, with sibelious i dont know, ive never used it[/quote]

What I mean is that if I want to put bass 5 in the "F" space, I can EASILY do so. You can do it in Sibelius but the problem is, with VD, there are so many sounds/notes to move that are crammed into the Sibelius' House Style Staff types that you literally lose what you've moved and what hasn't been moved. It is my hope that on the VD template, the ability to select bass position and pitch would be like a drop down box or something similar to somewhat simply and clarify the process.

What do you mean by "pick the space"?
I'd like to be able to pick the space and pitch (note?) for the bass drums tuning.
What about handclaps, that would be cool.
Feverbass'04,

Word on the street is that Tapspace will becoming out with "Virtual Pit." No release date yet but keep your browser pointed to the Tapspace website. I'm sure it will satisfy your Virtual percussion needs!

[color=blue]ya never know it could stay the same price...or wat about instead of virtual drumline its virtual percussion...that way u got it for people only intrested in writting for drumline, or people who want to write percussion shows with mallets n everything lol just suggestion :D [/color]
[quote="FeverBass'04"][color=blue]wat about instead of it being sample software u have to put into a existing program why not make Virtual Drumline its own software program all together? It would make it alot easier on the people who arent that good with computers n stuff. This way you would have all the different playbacks for all the drums on it already and sheet music n everything u would need. All u would have to do is pop the disk in yor cd drive, download it onto yor computer and your got yor own actual drumline software like finale but no other insturments. :) [/color][/quote]

Ummm....I think that would jack up the price A LOT since they'd have to create a music writing program. Besides, most of the people using Virtual Drumline write more than just for the battery. :)

Jim,
Sweet. Will the next version be offered as an upgrade to existing users or will we need to purchase a whole new version?

Gabe
Yes indeed Gabe. It's on the list. :)

Thanks!
