Re: Vertical zoom work in progress

what's this for in practical terms? and also without having an horizontal zoom?

trying to bend my head around why I'd want such a feature.

Scale up low-amplitude data, or scale down >0dBFS data (e.g. clipped 32-bit float content).

Yeah I gather how vertical zoom works from 20+ years of using audio editors and what you might use it for, it's a visual aide for the most part, but that usually works in both x and y - just seems bizarre you'd add vertical before horizontal or one and not the other.

Can't see any practical application really without both


Edit: or are you saying it affects the amplitude of the extraction? Haven't had time to check - even then, its mega fiddly without having horizontal zoom too

Edit 2: just seen on the roadmap to v 1 that you are making the waveforms zoomable, that's cool, cause if you want it to be an every day tool - that, and other basic basic things like rename are a must

Re: Vertical zoom work in progress

One thing at a time. Resonic is mainly a browser, not a wave editor, so caching/preloading a full-detail waveform for horizontal zoom while keeping it speedy and memory usage low is not an easy task to accomplish.

And no, it does not affect amplitude, that could be an option, but a separate gain stage would be more useful and right now things like normalize on export make more sense.
