I had a cursory play around with the orb when it first arrived and thought "Cool!" but never went back to it (there's plenty of other things to keep me busy in Omni).
But I just got an iPad and so downloaded Omni TR. I've been obsessed with the orb on iPad it ever since, this is such a powerful tool. I'm already planning to use it on my next recording session and hopefully live. The expressive possibilities are just great.
Two things have occurred since spending some time with it.
1) It would be great if the player could have some control over what parameters the orb controls. For example I have a sound and I'd just love to control the FM depth and rate with the orb - say left and right for rate and up and down for depth. But at the moment there's no way to choose. So that would be a future feature request - an orb zoom where you can choose what is controlled. Also it would be cool if you used the dice, to go into a zoom and see what was being controlled and tweak that.
2) Is there a way to wirelessly connect Omni TR to my macbook pro without needing to use the local WiFi hub/router? - I don't want to depend on there being a usable WiFi setup at a gig. Could I bring my own wireless hub to gigs I wonder... I don't see why not... or maybe there's a better way? Any thoughts on this from anyone?
