Yes, I guesss this can get close to a philosophical discussion!
Still a software like say Ableton is definetly more streamlined to be used with mouse and keybord to edit your ideas quickly. Creativity likes speed. For me the graphics don’t need to represent a real device, I do prefer less graphic clutter. Sure the GUI of a module should be somewhat recogniseable, but liite variety is needed for that.
Pricisely where the WebUI of the MOD lacks for me is the cable thing, zooming of the canvas and to have two views for each device. In Ableton and in Kilohearts it is solved with predefined slots or tracks. No cables at all. Zooming is done by scrolling, also due to the slot/tracks. And I guess all device parameter should be in the device, no doubling of knobs. ( In MOD I have to remember two layouts for each device… )
Also the library of devices on the bottom is hard to navigate. ( mayba because of the left right scrolling, mayby better vertical on the side ).
Ah and of course a keybord shortcut system for basic functions. ( copy/paste devices. Open a settings state of the device… ).
Really these are just some ideas thrown in and I realise that some go in a very different direction as the current WebUI.
What are your thoughts on the usability?
