First, I’m still absolutely excited to (hopefully) get my hands on a Dwarf around Christmas! The use of a web interface is outstanding, and something I don’t understand why other companies do not use. I’m in the IT field, and use web interfaces all the time for network devices, printers, etc. And I do understand things can change between now and the release of the Dwarf. Please keep up the good work. I decided to support the campaign not only because was I excited about this device, but I could see how dedicated the Mod Device team is.
I was just a bit surprised this functionality wasn’t already available in the device. A good portion of the “mainstream” modelers do this, although most use dedicated editing software. And a lot do not have iOS apps available. Another reason why the Dwarf caught my attention, since ANY device can basically be used to edit via the web. It is not at all inconceivable that a guitar player would now have an portable device clipped to mic or music stand. And at a jam or rehearsal session, tweaking on the fly is usually always required (at least by me). The Dwarf screen is not huge by any means, and will not be able to relay a lot of information (as compared to a Helix or Headrush, for example). Having to reconnect the UI every time one needs to change the pedalboard (aside from those items assigned to foot switches or knobs), then disconnect every time to use the foot switches or knobs again, does seem a bit counterproductive in my mind. But again, I do understand this can change, and do appreciate everything that has been added and tweaked since the initial release of the Duo.
I also realize this is not a “mainstream” device (sorry if that sounds wrong). The number of users of a Mod Device will not be as vast as those who use Zoom, Line 6, Boss, etc. So it is quite possible that I may be the only person who thinks this functionality is even be required . And I guess I shouldn’t say “required”, but more so something can can be more easily achieved due to the nature of editing on this device itself. And if that can make using the device a little more easy, or even a bit more fun, then why not? Nothing wrong with giving the user that option, when it appears to be something that is right there within reach.
Also, this is an open forum. I do absolutely appreciate that I can come on here and have a discussion about such items, and hear back from those far more knowledgeable than I. I do hope that the Mod team can appreciate hearing other people’s opinions, even if they don’t necessarily agree with them . You did say you are listening and implementing features as requested by users. THAT IS FREAKING AWESOME!!!
Wow, that was too much to type. Back to my coffee.
Keep up the good work.
