Hey guys, I hope everyone is doing well during this quarantine. Our dream Foot team has been working on exciting new features. Let me share with you a few of them.
We have successfully integrated Bluetooth MIDI into the app with new advanced MIDI settings for Momentary & Latch MIDI devices. Fixed a few minor bugs from our latest update. Our subscription model is almost ready! The new update will bring many new features into the app. Here are some of them: Cloud Storage. Personalized user accounts that can be accessed from any device. Community Songs. An internal place for users to share their songs. Premium Songs. Pre-made songs that can be downloaded into any device created by Dream Foot. If you are a current Dream Foot user, you will automatically inherit some of these features at no extra cost. We are going to keep everyone updated about the changes as we enter into the beta testing phase in the following weeks. You guys are going to love these changes!!! If any of you would like to test the new features before the release, please send me an email at email@example.com and I will add you to the beta testing team. Cheers!
For the song mode, if we have multiple progressions (e.g., Intro -> Verse -> Chorus) we need to press a button ( ▶ play) to advance through the chords within that progression, then when we get to the end of that section of the song, we need to press another button ( ▼ down) to move to the next progression. Given that most songs have a fixed structure, it seems a bit silly to have to press a button to advance progressions when this could easily be automated by telling Dream Foot the number of repeats per progression. The TONALY app does this, I pasted below some examples (I leave it to you to take the concept and make it look pretty, if implemented). It would be enough to set between 1-16 progressions, or infinite ( ∞), which may come in handy if there is a section of the song (like a solo or outro) that you usually jam out to and the repeats are not fixed. Each progression can be set to infinite by default so it will operate as the app does now unless the user specifies a number of repeats. Of course with the upcoming "send midi messages on progression change" feature, this would need to change to the new progression when the user taps play on the final chord of the final repeat (and not earlier than that). Hope the suggestion helps!
I purchased the Digital D1 App as well as the DF Retro package. The sounds in the DF package are very nice indeed.
As I was browsing over the different sounds the D1 has, I ran into a nice Digital Piano Stereo preset that I really like and I wanted to ask you how can I get this sound while making songs in the DF.
I “routed” the DF to have the MIDI Out selected on Digital D1 (hoping to get the preset of the Digital Piano Stereo) but in change I get no sound at all from the DF. I clicked the Sound button on the DF to “Mute” - hoping to only hear the D1 preset.
Can the presets of the D1 be used in the Song Mode of the DF? I realize that I’m not too tech savvy so I may be doing something wrong.
I appreciate any help you can share.
