Hello Devin!

Your ideas all sound good, and I think a combination of video-tutorials and
writing documentation is the way to go. I would gladly volounteer to do a
basic tutorial if you teach me how to sample a synth through synthclone.
For example, I have a synth inside LMMS (TripleOscillator) that I would
love to sample and use in other apps. How would I go about doing that
inside synthclone? (I guess the explanation would suffice for any synth
connectable via a jack-midi port, right?). That could probably generate a
simple tutorial of basic synth-cloning from me. I do however have to say
that I within the next maybe two weeks have a pretty packed schedual, so I
cannot promise anything timewise.

Another idea would be a forum, or a thread in an existing forum well
populated by LAU's, making it easy to post instructions and/or tutorials
for synthclone. Make it a community effort!

I will not be around LAC unfortunately.

Cheers!

You're not the only person to bring up this problem. =A0There is =
very
little documentation on how to use synthclone, and synthclone could
benefit from input from user-experience experts to make the software
more intuitive. =A0Unfortunately, synthclone has been a one-person
operation up until now, and I'm not a user experience expert or
particularly good at writing documentation.

I would like to take some steps to rectify this problem. =A0Here are
some ideas I have:

1.) Make a video tutorial on how to use synthclone.

I'm considering submitting a drum kit to the Hydrogen Spring Drum Kit
Contest by sampling kits I've made on my external drum synth using
synthclone. =A0If and when I do, I'll create a video tutorial on how I<=
br>
use synthclone to create the Hydrogen drum kit.

2.) Find some time to write documentation.

It might not be the greatest documentation ever, but it would be
something. =A0The problem is that I wrote the software, and probably
make some bad assumptions about what the user does and doesn't know
that someone with a fresh perspective might not make.

3.) Get other people involved.

I would love to have other people join me in helping to make
synthclone better for everyone! =A0So, if you are (or anyone out there
is) interested in contributing to synthclone, please let me know!

What do you think about these ideas? =A0Do you have additional ideas
that might help?

I'll be at the Linux Audio Conference this week, so if you're going=
to
be at LAC and have some ideas you'd like to discuss, please let me
know.
