Sure..I understand what you mean..I basically didn't want to go into too much detail before somebody replied, though I can see, with hindsight, that a little more info from me would have been helpful.
Regarding what I said about commercialization..I mentioned it just to be clear that I don't intend "using" anyone on here..and that even though I am not able to pay for the time and work needed to complete such a project, I'm open to working with the person involved as best I can..and if that means they think we have a viable product at the end of it all, then there's always the option of taking it further and entering into a more solid business venture together.
Basically, what I'm looking for is a piece of software that will enable me to do a number of things within the same program, which would require it to have a number of features built into it. The following list is "shopping list" of sorts that should be read as merely a guide for now, as I'm guessing a lot depends more on the person doing the coding than any wish-list I could post here..
a) The ability to play/pause/stop/fast-forward/rewind/loop a number of different tracks independently at the same time, while being able to morph between each track.
b) To be able to record/mute/solo the output from each track.
c) To be able to record both independently and collectively, each track in real time to a single track in the DAW that's hosting it.
d) The program/vst should be able to auto-generate ambient music from bundled samples, as well as/or allow me to import my own samples to work with..and also record MIDI input at the same time..in effect, combining all sources into one track.
e) It should allow me to record and export finished works to a number of formats..not necessarily all of the follow, but including most in no specific order: MP3, WAV, AIFF, FLAC, OGG (Vorbis) and AAC
f) Is should incorporate some sort of display of the sound wave being created/worked on..and allow me to move through the sound by dragging/sliding an "indicator" from side-to-side and/or up-and-down through the sound wave form in real time, similar to such features found in granular synthesis software.
g) There should be a similar graphical interface for the morphing aspect of the software..an x/y panel of sorts, that would allow me to morph through not only the sounds, but the tracks also, in real time.
h) It should also incorporate such "basic standards" A.D.S.R (Attack-Decay-Sustain-Release) and built-in LFOs / Filters
i) Relating to (h) above, there should also be the option to control any number of tracks' A.D.S.R (Attack-Decay-Sustain-Release) and built-in LFOs / Filters by mapping them to the one set of controls.
j) It must accept "midi in" and allow "midi out", so as to be used with hardware "out of the box" if necessary, in a live setup.
k) A built-in text notepad, that would let me keep notes for each track and have some sort of indicator that would show on a track when a note has been opened/saved/attached to it.
l) The ability to import .FXB files / preset banks
m) Perhaps the biggest wish of all: The finished software would come in standalone, vst and Native Instrument's Kontakt file format, for use in the same.
OK..I know..that's a big list and perhaps my expectations are more than a little high here, but I'm hoping somebody can help me with this project. As you can see, I'm not talking about some small application that will do just one thing, but a full-blown program that would match any of the "big boys" out there. I have other ideas, too, that I'd like to see incorporated into this thing, but I don't really want to say any more until I have somebody to work with on this project..in fact, I think I've said more than enough already as it is.
As I said before, I'm looking for somebody who is willing to seriously commit to this project and has the abilities needed to complete the required tasks. I understand this would take some time to do, but the person I'm looking for would already know this and be willing to put in the hours/days/weeks/months (hopefully not years!) to do this.
I know there are other programs / vst instruments out there that offer most of these features I've listed here, as well as those I haven't..I own most of them already myself..but I want one that will do what they all do, but "in one box", so to speak.
I hope this helps clarify things a bit.
