After some weeks using the Zynthian, I have the feeling that two features could be really useful:
It would be great to have one global panel in Zynth-UI to adjust the gain levels (and possibly pannings) of the sound outputs of each layer. Currently it’s not super convenient to adjust the mix to go through each synth/effects on each layer and individually set the gain/volume option, especially since various plugins can have it at various places, and that some effects like distortion will add new level/gain settings that will affect the final layer’s volume. Having a single mixer panel to apply gains to each layer in one place (as you can do in most DAWs with a mix pannel) would be awesome.
And if these gains/pannings could be CC-controllable it would be even better, but it’s not too problematic if they aren’t.
(BTW can you guys recommend a good spatialization/panning LV2 plugin that works on the zynthian? For now I’m only using ZynChorus to add a bit of spatialization to instruments, but chorus isn’t exactly the same than, eg., duplicating a signal with one duplicata fully panned to left and one fully panned to right)
When recording the audio, everything is mixed into a single WAV file. It doesn’t make it really possible to post-process the recording further in a DAW. It would be really great if we could have an option to record each layer to its separate WAV file, if that’s doable.
