Since the release of the Quad Cortex modeller, most people have been asking for a desktop editor for the Quad Cortex. While the interface of the Quad Cortex makes for seamless editing, a desktop editor can speed up the process.
In Discord, Doug revealed some details about the highly-anticipated desktop editor.
Here is what we know:
- There has been a dedicated team working on the desktop editor for months
- The desktop editor will require the Quad Cortex to be connected to use (like some other modellers)
- Doug is strictly against a single-file preset format like what the Helix and other modellers offer
- There might be a future feature to save and load setlists into the Quad Cortex
Admittedly, the lack of file format is disappointing. For such an expensive device that I am a huge fan of, the lack of open file format isn’t ideal and I hope they change it. It seems as though Neural DSP is taking an Apple-inspired approach to their hardware, locking people into using their cloud and future marketplace.
