LSDJ Feature WishlistEdit

These are mostly actual requests from users - so feel free to add or comment upon this. /Johan

Stuff to consider:Edit

  • The ability to skip the first chain when the song repeats
  • Move around songs in file screen (besides LOAD/SAVE/ERASE button, also add MOVE)
  • Build-in-mixer feature in LSDJ, where you can adjust the different 4 channel's volume.
  • Open source player
  • Investigate if it is somehow possible to reduce clicks from table volume column.
  • Show both WAV samples being played in border.
    • Must remember to move the MUTE/LR/SYNC indicators down a row so as to maintain visual separation from the "N" line
  • PC keyboard: record what's being played
  • transfer instruments/phrases/songs over link cable and infrared port
  • Longer sample offset?
  • An indicator on the main screen, blinking at the rate of bpm (for a visual aid on the tempo).
  • The ability to save instruments I've made through the wavetable for use in other songs.
  • Add more default kits.
  • Sync: if starting song play from phrase, try to sync chain position. Possible??
  • Noise channel for keyboard.
  • Super Gameboy special features (border graphics??)
  • Speech channel for keyboard (should work but seems buggy? or?)
  • Prelisten now only works when sync is off or keybd, fix it in all modes?

...these are somewhat older suggestions:

  • Player that supports multiple songs on .sav
  • Document how to play hand-drawn waves (manual mode). E.g., there are two hand-drawn waves (00 and 01), how to play 00 as attack and 01 as release?
  • Reset automated tables with A cmd + 80 + tableno
  • PC keyboard table select (maybe with num keypad)?
  • ADSR in wave synth
  • C, P, V, L cmd on noise channel
  • PC keyboard: fake polyphony switching between pu1, pu2, wav
  • Wave synth: would be nice with wave banks that are 32, 48, 64 frames long...


(removed stuff here to make the page tidier)

  • Add way to exclude instruments from chain transpose
  • After deleting a song, auto-remove the empty slots in the middle
  • Provide page-by-page scrolling via D-pad left and right - actually B+up/down does this already
  • Detune/finetune command
  • CMD's to change synth characteristics (eg. Speed, Repeat, Length)
  • Bug: in phrase screen, first set vibrato, then pitch. Won't work unless HF mode selected.
  • Bug?: L and C command don't work together - same with P and C.
  • Bug?: L/P and transpose don't work together.
  • Custom color palette (TODO: mention LSDpatcher again in lsdj docs?)
  • Add Command to modify KIT playlength [ nice effects and even melodies ] - already exists through S command

Won't happen... or?:Edit

Comments by me (Johan)

  • Volume column in the phrase screen - there simply is not enough RAM.
  • Separate clipboards for different stuff - probably not, RAM is limited
  • External arpeggio notes in tables; allow tables to reference the note pre-increased by parameter 1/2 of the Cxy effect (c.f. effect 10xx in klystrack) - I'm sorry, but I don't immediately see the big advantage with this.
  • More effects in cmd - I don't understand. More effects? Which effects?
  • I command in tables - unclear what advantage this would bring, over what is already possible to do with tables.
  • Customizable duty cycle/"shape" parameter for synth - I don't understand how this is different from the already available sync settings
  • Shape distortion for synth; more options besides clip and wrap - please describe in greater detail what you want
  • Keyfollow/keytracking in a wave channel synth - the CPU is too slow to adjust filter settings live
  • Second CMD column in PHRASE screen for complex work - not enough RAM
  • keyboard mapping tool, allowing a user to custom map a keyboard to lsdj, especially for special keyboards with extra buttons - seems like something very few people would be interested in
  • ADSR for the Wave instruments with control of it in the Phrase screen - that's really two requests in one. ADSR - maybe. Phrase screen control will not happen, because the wave synth is just too slow to change instantly while playing.
  • Ability to randomize a phrase - this actually existed in versions 3.4.4 - 3.9.2, but wasn't a very popular feature.
  • video - what's that supposed to mean? Maybe check out
  • A timer on the main screen showing elapsed seconds and minutes of the song - there's not much screen space for this. Check project screen instead.
  • A function like Ctrl+z -UNDO- (in windows) for correct errors such as accidentally deleting notes. If you delete notes, they should be in the clipboard - just press select+a to paste them back in.
  • A NDS LSDJ sequencer with touch interface and the ability to create gb sav files to be used in LSDJ on the Game Boy. Why would you want that?
  • Reverse sample play. I would really like this, but unfortunately it's not an easy thing to do - it's very difficult just to play two channels forwards. Instead, one will have to prepare reverse samples...
  • Startup demo song. Is this really a good idea? It would be pretty nice for new users to quickly check if the setup is working by pressing start... but at the same time I just think it's pretty nice to start from a clean slate.
  • Command for changing kit speed - this could be done, but there are so many commands already... not sure how to fit it in.
  • Groove entry in chain screen - this kind of makes sense... but not sure there is enough RAM to put a new column in chain screen.
  • Use PC keyboard keys for launching chains/phrases - somewhat nice idea, but would be a lot of boring/tough work for me. If you want this, maybe one option would be to just use Ableton and sample LSDj..?
