More than one layout per overlay

#1

Hello Sensel,

after using the Morph now for quite some time, I find it more and more limiting to have just one layout or setting available per overlay. I turn on the app quite often, just to change a preset for the same overlay to use with another synth etc.

I can understand that you want to sell overlays, but having all of these that are of any use to me, I think this would be the number one improvement right now.

I also have to say, that this limitation was not clear at all when I bout the Morph.

As the Morph has no display, It would then be practical to have a small menu bar item, that shows the name of the layout chosen.

Is it possible to use one piano overlay for MPE and other without MPE

Great idea! Would be nice if the Morph could store several layouts for a given overlay. With one being active at a time and a new area type that allows to change the active layout.
Optimally there could be three types of such areas:

  • select overlay name and layout name
  • select overlay name the next layout changes should apply to
  • select layout name to be applied to the last chosen overlay

Then the switching areas wouldn’t necessarily have to be on each and every layout but we could create a special “layout switching” overlay that can switch the layouts for all other overlays. Either with direct selection keys (overlay+layout) or e.g. two rows overlay 1-16 and two rows layout 1-16 with the state keeping approach (first select the overlay, then the layout).

I would really love this. I’m thinking about making a midi controller that could be chromatic or in a major or minor scale.

Thanks for the suggestion! As you may have seen we are selling pre orders for our Buchla Overlay https://sensel.com/products/buchla-thunder-overlay.

The Buchla Overlay will allow you to program 9 presets and switch between them on the fly. Switching presets will be limited to the Buchla Overlay but we will update the community if that changes.

That’s a pity because that type of interface is not for me. Would love if the switching could be added to the other overlays. Would make the product really versatile.

Thank you for chiming in Alex, great to see that you already had this idea! I would be great if your existing customers could also benefit from this functionality. :sunglasses:

I’ll second the request for having the capability to switch layouts on all overlays. I think it would be a significant feature upgrade.
