    Let us help designing the coming ”User Presets”

    This thread is Game Changer-users sharing ideas on
    how we like the ”User Presets” in the Web App to be designed.

    Since we know that The Game Changer is the future for electric guitars & basses,
    -it is time to develop the best ideas on how the sharing of User Presets should be designed.
    There has to be some prioritys.
    So if You use a Game Changer, please take part, and let us work together.
    ( I guess EBMM are working on it, but some respons from users all over the world could contribute

    I will start by giving my ideas, so far (they will change, during our common process).

    NAME OF YOUR USER-PRESET
    The name should tell others the character of Your sound.
    Giving associations to certain songs/artists/sounds.
    The type of names in the present TGC Web App ( like ”1s4” ) will not give enough guidance, when looking for a special sound among hundreds of presets.

    YOUR SPECIAL COMMENTS
    The present ”Properties” works fine, for Your special comments on Your own preset.
    ( Like: ”for aggressive picking” or ”strumming with thin pick close to neck” )



    HOW TO SYSTEMATIZE / SITE-MAP
    Here is the real problem, I guess.
    When it comes to prioritys.
    This is my first proposal:

    STEP 1. SELECT YOUR MODEL
    - Bass HH =contains all bass presets.
    - Guitar HH =presets for HH and HHP not using piezo.
    - Guitar HHP =presets when using piezo on HHP
    - Guitar HSH =presets for HSH and HSHP not using piezo.
    - Guitar HSHP =presets when using piezo in HSHP.

    The first step is not a problem. But in step 2 prioritys hav to be made.

    STEP 2. SELECT YOUR... (Now You are in Your special model folder)
    What categories are the best, to quickly find the sound/preset You are looking for?
    a) PLAYING-STYLE?
    b) GENRE?
    c) SOUND?

    Examples:
    Since I'm a bass-player i start with BASS-category-ideas:
    a) SELECT YOUR PLAYING STYLE:
    -SLAP
    -FINGER
    -FINGER EDGY (Like sounds for dist)
    -PICK
    -PICK EDGY
    -SPECIAL (Like ”good for trigging EBS Octavider” or ”for Korg Pandora Fretless”)

    Examples for GUITAR categories (inside each special model folder)
    a) SELECT YOUR PLAYING STYLE:
    -FINGER
    -FINGER CHORDS
    -PICK
    -PICK EDGY
    -PICK STRUM
    -CHICKEN PICKING
    -SPECIAL (Like ”good for trigging TC Helicon Harmonizer” or ”for Boss Synth...”)
    In the guitar-categories I'm lost. You guitarists know much better what categories shold be.

    ….Or is it better if You...

    b) SELECT YOUR GENRE?
    In the Gam Changer Web App it is a system with 13 guitar genres, and 3 bass genres.
    (I don't write them down here, it's better seen in the Web App.)
    Are those 13 genres OK for You guitarists?
    ...The 3 bass genres will be too limited for me as a bass player, I guess, when the library is filled with hundreds of presets in each genre... Then we will need some sub-genres...

    ...Or is a system of the desired sound the best solution..?..

    c) SELECT YOUR DESIRED SOUND?
    Examples: ”For....DIST...TREMOLO...FLANGER...CLEAN...BOOMY.. .THIN...”..?

    - - - - - - -

    Or...is it possible to store the same preset in several categories..?

    Well...those are my first ideas in our common research
    I hope to hear from You
    Game Changer users on bass or guitars!

    Like step 1 and 2 but I think you too complicated in the lettered sub paragraphs after 2. Currently I don't think there's enough users in the library to use that many different categories.
