    I would love to see a dedicated button to switch to current selected part in the midi editor.
    Currently a lot of double tapping and switching back and forth.
    Just having a dedicated button viewing current selected part in the main UI would be a welcome feature.

    I'm a little confused on this one. Would you mind explaining it a bit further?

    What i mean is that if the 'back to song' button would change to 'piano roll' when you press it. ( currently it changes to properties ) then you could switch back and forth much easier. Going in and out of the piano roll is used way more often than track properties.
    The clip properties icon could be moved next to the Mute and Solo buttons of a individual track where you would expect it ( and where there is lots of UI space left )

    Also the 2nd time you press the song or mixer button nothing happens.
    My brain expects that the 2nd time you press that button it would toggle back to the other view.
    But maybe im a little crazy😂

    I think the iPad version should not be limited because of the iphone version. That would be a shame.
    Making it iPad only wouldn't be an issue for the serious users ( i think )

    Personally, I'm 100% OK with having a few iPad-only features but, based on user feedback/requests I've seen, your second assumption isn't true.

    I understand what you say and you are right.
    I mean in terms of UI it shouldnt be limited.
    There is enough UI space on an ipad to show the current channelstrip in song view for example.
    Or to show the piano roll below the arrangent view. Tap a part and see the pianorol and arrangement in 1 view.

    There is enough UI space for this and it would benefit the editing tremendously on bigger sized screens

    Gotcha. I'm happy with the current double tap setup but can definitely see where you're coming from. Especially as it relates standardized 'toggling' behavior like:

    Also the 2nd time you press the song or mixer button nothing happens.
    My brain expects that the 2nd time you press that button it would toggle back to the other view.

    You are not alone. :) I don't know if there are any plans to implement this but we did discuss it during the beta. The list is long and mighty!

    isn't this how it was implemented before release initially ?

    And then we voted to remove this behaviour - it was super confusing for some of us, you never knew certainly where you jump with second tap on active button, if you forget where you was before... at least for me it was hell and i was really glad Matt removed :-)

    in my head those 3 buttons are just "doors" into 3 main parts of NS (settings, sequencer, mixer) - if you open doors of same house twice they will not take you to different house :-)))

    But where it will took you in case you have selected multiple clips ? Plus usability of such button would be not ideal - you would still need tap (select) clip to go into and then tap this new button - isn't more easy directly double tap clip itself like now ?

    The clip properties icon could be moved next to the Mute and Solo buttons of a individual track where you would expect it (

    three main reasons why this is not that good idea:

    • there is reserved place for another buttons related to future audio tracks ;)
    • you still need think about iPhone UI - there is not so much space
    • most important - clip properties can be applied to multiple selected clips across multiple tracks - so it is global feature on top of whole "pool" of clips in project

    you can for example mute all selected clips by double tapping on settings button - this would be lot less intuitive if settings would be on track header

  • FWIW and IMHO the current implementation makes perfect sense as it relates to my prior experience with NS and other software.
