uiuiui - what a swell of post suddenly out of the blue !
Regrettably I don't use Sweep presently since the disk with the old
(and sometimes, always labourously "upgraded") version crashed.
Early on I was enthusiastically using Sweep but always waited for (and
expected) some improvemets which would make it the tool of preferece
to work with; which didn't come about. And this was my wishlist:
-- Ergonimical keybindings (or even better, the possibility of
individually set them). In one of the threads of the list, the reason
for the "hardwired" bindings given was to maintain similarity to a
certain widely used Windo$e gear. Sorry, but I found that plain silly;
precisely the all-new Sweep could (and should) have made an end to such
idiocy even if the latterwas widely established.
-- Some clip files handling for a "project", if rudimetary (kind of an
ordinary pop-up list with certain standard fields, one line per clip,
would suffice.) Maybe this is too specific a demand coming from my
primary use of the sound editor for montage, in addition to the very
-- A _working_ recorder. I never got Sweep's recorder running; and in
any case, its design would be too primitive and would hardly allow
precise indication - and thus control - of the source signals. Another
salient point with this woukld be the direct integration of source
clips into a "project list".
[I used to use a nice little stand-alone recorder, YAREC, for this
purpose but that one was even more of a PITA to re-install after each
system upgrade, as its development had stopped years ago and thus this
meant hunting for some obscure dependencies. Another L*x-typical
misery. If it had been compiled once as a "static" version it could
have lived on forever.]
