seen discussion here, I agree with NavidSyed and Miden.
vArranger should have all options that are now present on LiveStyler and extra options posted earlier on another thread for asked price:
vArranger software need a style Sequencer with its own format too (maybe MIDI format with Markers recognition for intro-fills-variation-ends):
-and one special guitar track (when you change chords the guitar track, change the chord like a real Guitar Chord Scale)
1 track for loops slices (played through a midi midi sequence):
8-intro sliced loops (8 midi sequences)
8-variations sliced loops (8 midi sequences)
8-fills (8 midi sequences)
8-Ends (8 midi sequences)
and if you can not make a style Sequencer, then support for
MIDI style with markers and one track for special Guitar track and one for midi sequences for sliced loops will also be good.
then style creators can use third party Sequencer for styles,
and for slices ReCycle:http://www.propellerheads.se/products/recycle/
and of course those options are also an opportunity for Norbert(LiveStyler) to add on LiveStyler and keep the price low as it is(for version without soundsource).
currently LivesStyler need a better Gui and some bugs fixes (for example 7/8 or 7/16 styles does not play correctly) on demo version.
and a new gui should be easily achievable for Nobert, because the software is already written, and developer can easily customize the GUI code section.
it is also important to know which language both programs are written:
becouse a good C++ software is always faster end more stable then some other languages (but it depends on the writer too).
