1) A modern installer like Pulse or Continuata Connect.

2) Contrast or luminance adjustment for the GUI.

In ST4's browser: show each ST3-Imported library as a CATEGORY. Based on the folders found in ST3's Imported Samples folder.

Some different skins would be good, and UI variations which make things stand out a bit more boldly. I love a "dark" themed skin in most things I use as it inhibits eye-strain etc....but this should ideally be augmented with excellent brightness and luminosity on and around the control surfaces to give you that "Boeing 737 night approach in a dark cockpit" sensation where every nob and dial has a bright neon presence which feels reassuringly "there" and accessible.

Sorry for all the posts - I think Sampletank Syntronik presets tagged "FAVORITE" from the Syntronic instruments should show in Syntronik. Also, all the Syntronik presets tagged "FAVORITE" should show on Sampletank. 8-)

Would love:
  • To make the UI smaller
  • Faster instantiation of plugin, loading already instantiated plug-in UI, etc. It's pretty slow in general.
  • Convert from other formats, perhaps SFZ? I think being able to round out the content included with some 3rd party stuff would be great, however despite the editor I don't see much yet. Maybe we can give some sample libraries creators a nudge?
  • I can't find an expander or gate anywhere in the effects and want one for drum loops

Hi, after working a couple of weeks designing my own patches in ST4, mainly using the ST4 engine. I see a nice opportunity to add the following:

    Better text contrast and FX menu sorted like MixBox
    Modern synth Reverb, e.g. like Spire VST.
    Modulation targets from Env/LFOs in the Matrix to FX parameters of the Effects Rack.
    Name Midi CC1 "Mod Wheel" in the Mod Matrix and move it up in the selection window.
    Envelope "curve" settings on front page.
    Possibility to lock the edit page, so you can change only the sampled sound, but keep the filter and mod matrix settings.
    Add 2 MSEG's with loop function, sync/free.
    Allow for user mapping of imported samples, e.g. like Maschine 2, just drag in and adjust spread etc.

Wish list =

1. A sounds installer that works directly with the zip/dmg files. It should ask you for the source folder where it would find the zip files, then ask for the destination folders separately for ST4 and ST3 sounds, and then process all the zip files that it finds in that source folder all at once.

2. A direct method for getting ST2-era sounds (including the original Expansion Tanks, note the "E") into ST4 without having to install a version of ST3 first.

(Just brainstorming: since there are technical issues otherwise, could the Editor be enhanced to pull the sound data from the old ST2 instruments files so that users can create new ST4 instruments from them? If several of those older instruments could be combined into ranges, layers, or round robins using the editor, that would be amazing.)

3. As many others have noted, improvements in the visibility of the user interface. The poor contrast and darkness are hard on the eyes, causing sessions to become physically painful due to eye strain and fatigue. In addition to improving the contrast, would it be possible to have the effects or other smaller elements pop up into larger windows when they are clicked? I have to use the Windows magnification tools to see what the knobs say and what the current levels are on many of the effects.

4. Improvements to the efficiency of the engine itself. Like others have reported, I also get the crackling noises when playing many notes simultaneously - even without a sustain pedal. I'm using an 8-core, 4 gHz (AMD Fx series) CPU with 16 gig of RAM, and I get crackling when I play 7 or 8 notes simultaneously on the 3.1 GB versions of the C7 piano, even AFTER tweaking my buffer settings. I'm thinking that shouldn't be happening, but clearly I'm not the only one having those issues. I'm guessing that more very large instruments are on the horizon, so I hope that memory utilization and CPU core utilization can be optimized to help more of us play more of those large instruments without those kinds of issues.

5. More details about source instruments (eg manufacturer and model) in the info section that pops up when you click on an instrument in the instrument browser. For example, the Upright Piano is wonderful. But what piano was sampled to make this gem?

One more thing. Wet/Dry for each FX slot, at least for single patches, but great if available for Multi patch FX slots too. I see MixBox has it.

A Gain slider for the Patch after the FX. I see several factory patches have volume inconsistencies and it is hard to set an equal volume as your may need to drive certain stages for desired effect, thus the end volume will depend on what FX you used and the final patch volume can be quite different.
