Come on guys... This is basic... I pull a kick or snare to my Impact XT and it doesn't sound right... I look at the waveform and it's -180 polarity. I want to be able to flip the phase RIGHT THERE and get on with the rest of the song.

Also... make looping regions similar to how it is in Logic Pro pweease.

The outputs of Impact XT are shown in your Mixer. For any channel you want to reverse polarity, use the Input Control and change it there.

and what a waste of time it is to do all of that for a simple a task. Put it in the GUI... one click.... done.

Hi.  There is a plugin called the "mix tool" which you can add to each output.  The mix tool can reverse phase, adjust gain, switch from mono to stereo.   You can assign multiple outputs from the Impact Xt so each pad has it's own output with its own mix tool.

For the folks saying send the output to a mixer and use mixtool... Consider if 5 of the 16 waveforms were out of phase... and you could tell by just looking at the waveform on Impact... how long would it take me to send and output for each of the 5 pads and then load mixtool vs just hitting a polarity button on the Impact GUI for 5 pads?

Seems like a no brainer to me.

Oh and Impact and SampleOne need to have some kind of change history so can fix mistakes with ctrl-z sometimes (just saying) and the Impact have the ability to copy and paste pads.
