Bazik is already fantastic and I really like the way it works and its simplicity. Having said that it would be interesting to discuss potential new features to make it even better. What I would like to see in the future are a couple of things:
Tap to tempo style (and MIDI), something similar to Modul8 BPM module would be perfect. BPM could be used to sync the FX and the composition parameters.
Similar to the BPM Sync it would be useful to have a couple of LFOs (sine, square, random) to modulate Bazik parameters in time with the music, the LFOs should be able to sync to the BPM (perhaps integrating BPM and LFOs together).
Your request is legitimate, but i’m not sure is it for this product. I explain me.
Bazik would be a “ready to play” software that can be easy use by everyone. I have work a lot around Sync Bpm and create a powerfull audio engine but for the final user I really want that he don’t have worry about it.
That’s why, for this product, I don’t want MIDI Sync or complex connexion; run Bazik, plug your projector, and let’s go !
You are making drum & conga ? It’s work ! You are computer liver ? It’s work ! You are a old school dj with turntable ? It’s work ! That’s the philosophy for this product.
But your request is really interesting and Bazik users are separate between “novice” and “advanced vj”. I’m going to think about a Pro product with more precise parameters.
I hope Bazik become a suite of plugin where everyone can find account. We can write this story together and I’m open and ready to change my mind
In Vezer I simply create a couple of midi tracks and assign them to the controls I want to automate in Bazik (using midi learn). It works very well and it’s simple to set up. You can do the same by using Ableton, Numerology or any standard midi sequencer.
