First let me say that I am switching over from LPX as the hardware and software compliment in this...as of now, is TOO good to turn away. With that being said... I have some MAJOR issues..and this is MY first attempt at resolving what seems to be an incorrect implement of a MOST GENERIC feature that needs a reboot in functionality...So here it goes!!
Lets discuss why this "no overlap mode" deserves a real time adjustment!
1) in its most generic form - moving/copying/dragging/placing an event, is done soley for the prupose of hearing that region/event in aother place of your project/song. yes! yes!, yes!,
2) Now...most of all the extra features of any given S1 type program, besides the mandatory many.. were added to make that Application have extra, and above and beyond functionality.
2a) so in its most generic form, a copy and place,drag n drop, should place a region in a designated spot without question! this decision was made in advance to the actual click of a mouse or button on keyboard. In essence, the decision has been made and carried out.
2b) i ask in this regard... why is there an event/region still existing in the exact place that I have distinctly decided to place an event/region at this specific location. Has the S1 programmer decided how my moves in my song song on the day I am working on it, in front of my clients or just me, that I am "NOT SURE" of my actions. I know exactly what I am doing, and I am sure many others do too!. And for a fact..all the PT users, all the LPX users, Performer Users do as well. We are actually dealing with the basic functionality of copy,paste,copy and place function.... BEFORE the cool additions/options/functionality get added.
2c) So I ask, why is there an existing region, wether it be underneath, STILL showing/existing in the axtact place I have distinctly decided to copy an event/region, drag and drop...Why is an event region still appearing in the exact place I copied material to,in my project or song?
3) now that we have determined thru discussion that, explicit actions, taken in S1, are explicit/acted upon/%100 meant to be just what that action is...lets talk about our options here.
3a) I have seen in earlier versions thru an internet page that an option for "no overlap for events" was a preference at some point..I am not sure the functionality of that pref but.. let me define how re-instating should complete the proper mode in shich this option should play its part in S1.
3b) If S1 community or the S1 programmers at large are whole heartedly adament about interfering with an action SO GENERIC, then the only action the pref should be - is to "Allow or NOT Allow the event/region to exist underneath the event/region when dragged on/copied on/placed on/recorde over etc...
4) Just so we are %100 clear - An action SO GENERIC as a drag/copy/place/record over a specified area should NEVER leave remnants of what once was unless a pref has givin you the option.
5) there is one question that could arise here.."Should I have to go ahead and manually delete BEFORE I copy/paste any event/region an existing event/region?
5a) Or can we just just re-implement No Overlaps Mode- for Copy and Paste etc..Or can we Implement a Paste replace Mode which will under no circumstances will do anything but allow for a cleaner more professional work flow inside S1. Even in a worst case scenario, it's a wining solution!
I am in need for a RESOLVE HERE because the request here is for BASIC FUNCTIONALITY NOT EXTRA FUN STUFF..
Forgive me for goings on..but If for some reason this option exists and I have missed it...it took me about 250 hours to be blind sighted here. And if I am correct in my knowledge that this feature doesnt exist... I ask ALL Community to STAND WITH ME and Let's get this MOST GENERIC, SIMPLE Action BAck in the game!!!!!
My name is Joey Mosk - I am now switching over TO S1 .I have been a Logic User from the Emagic days. I was the first US citizen to be complimented with a Mackie ConTrol Surface, I was a Logic Beta Tester for 17 years. I am Mentioning this so someone on the upside of this wonderful institution will take head to my ADAMENT proclaim how detrimental this feature is to the beginner (in a mess of events and regions, all the way the expert who needs ABSOLUTE cleanliness in his or her arrange window while working for three days straight. And HOW MUCH TIME WILL BE SAVED, not having to clean up all those events/regions that are hidden underneath the events/regions I have expicitly placed... I BEG YOU!
