yes i know exactly what you mean.. i thought about that too..
the problem is that i am alomst sure that most of that stuff would never
find its way into mini audicle, because of different reasons..
>> wether we can crystalise those down to some additions to the Mini Audicle
thats one point, because as i said above: many of the ideas come from a very
personal way of using chuck. many people won't think that this is important
at all, but they are very important for me.. so sometimes you will have to
do things yourself :-)
another point is that things - like for example that plugin idea - are hard
to explain, and i am pretty sure that at least 50% of the people think "what
the hell does he want??" or sth. like that while reading the post :-)
because of that I even was not sure if i should write about it at all :-/
things like that maybe have to be tried out/tested to get the point behind
it.. Only having some strange abstract description of functionality is not
enough here :-)
so maybe this project also can also be seen as a test application for ideas
- like i said, in .net it is really easy to implement things, especially if
they need a lot of gui stuff.. i did not really do very much c or c++
programming, but i think it needs a lot of work/time there, so try out
things is not that easy..
if it looks cool/usefull, one can decide that its worth the trouble to add
it to audicle or mini audicle..
lets see.. besides all that, i simply have fun doing projects like that..
it is the same reason why i do music: the result is not the only reason for
doing it - the way getting there, the process of creating, is sometimes even
more important / the more satisfying part :-)
