I’d like to chime in with some suggestions for the future effects section. Basic digital effects like:
- Tape Delay
- Compressor (w/ sidechain/ ducking)
If these basic effects can be implemented and made assignable globally and per pad that would be a great addition to make this tank of a thing an all in one box where the user can focus on the creative aspects of his/her idea and get an almost complete piece done without the out of box “effects” distractions. Of course, once the idea gets knocked inside the S2400, by all means, folks with their multitude of external effects units can get the sound they are after with further external fx processing.
The concentric knob(s) above the slider can be used to control the “time” and the “amount” for the first 3 effects. For the compressor, one knob can control the ratio and the other the threshold. The “A” and “B” button below the concentric knobs can be utilized to add further “color” options if needed.
Again, this is merely a suggestion (read wishful thinking) but I reckon a basic set of mainstream effects (I think compression can be an effect in the current scenario) will make the S2400 a self contained Dope-A’men beat making chassis for even the millennials (and then some).
Thank you for reading.
