A standalone editor for Eleven Rack (outside of ProTools) would be a crucial addition for Eleven Rack owners. Launching ProTools just to access Eleven Rack's editor is totally excessive, and uses up too much RAM and system resources.
Delay spillover while switching patches on Eleven Rack would make for smoother, more natural transitions between sounds.
One area where the 11R is sorely lacking is with Pitch based FX. To address that I suggest an Intelligent Harmoniser (and pitch detuner) that is capable of producing 3 voices of harmony. The user at minimum should be able to set the Parent major key as well as the harmonic minor and of course the intervals. The Harmoniser I envision, would operate much like the Boss GT-10, Boss PS-6, Eventide PitchFactor or even better ...more »
quote from a tread on TGP:"I'm fascinated by what I've heard about third parties like Redwirez who I've heard have achieved new levels of realism in their speaker cabinet models than can be purchased, downloaded and introduced into one of your competitors devices".
Or maybe if Avid comes out with their own (extensive list of) IR's?
Call it 'traditional' or 'modular' in the setup menu so we can either keep FX in the 'correct' place (mod's under the Mod button etc) or just mix it up as we see fit.
Being able to run 2 delays would be handy for example and having a Flanger and EQ and Chorus but ditching the OD and having for example a trem available could suit many clean players.
It'd be nice to have a global clip indicator that appears when any of the monitored points (or at least the outputs) clips. This need only appear in the play (not edit) mode. It seems that there's enough space in all four play-mode screen that an clip icon could be flashed in the upper-right corner of the LCD. Alternatively, one of the lighted pushbuttons (I'd suggest the Edit/Back button, since it'll be normally orange ...more »
How about the ability to run 2 rigs together? I think that would sound awesome. How about a plexi & a jumped bassman in stereo? A twin & deluxe with a little slapback & tremelo? So many cool options if we could do that.
It would be excellent if Avid could commission a foot controller for the 11R, something based around the Behringer FCB1010 would be the best option as it has a relatively small foot print for live work. The controller should have this basic functionality: 1. LED screen on foot controller that displays rig name and also the tuner 2. Simply up/down and select pedals for the rig presets 3. 6 pedals in stomp mode so you ...more »
On a number of threads in various forums, 11R users have commented about the need for pitch based effects. Personally, I would really like to see a detune effect (similar to what is on the TC Electronics G System) which will provide the doubled guitar sound common to 80's rock and metal. While there are obvious work arounds to achieve this when recording in PT, having this effect as an option would great when using the ...more »
By far one of the most requested features when folks discuss the 11R on various internet forums. Many modeling units which attempt to recreate the Whammy really fall short. I believe the 11R has the needed horsepower to successfully emulate this effect.
Please add two-way MIDI communication so the Eleven Rack’s state can be probed resulting in foot controllers being able to synch and properly display data. Real world use? Grab the knob on the ER, give it a twist to select a different rig and have your foot controller end up in the same place! Almost every other guitar rack out there can does this resulting in feedback to the foot controller.
There is currently no way to send a full rig with cab out the Mains and a full rig no cab to Amp Outputs. The guys at Avid mentioned that there is no way to do so because it would use more DSP. If the Amp and Cab blocks were separate, the user could put the cab at the end of the chain, and select between full rig pre-cab or full rig for either output. No extra DSP needed!
