Retrologue 3 feature suggestions

Retrologue 2 is really great especially for a stock synth but there are a few things missing from it that could take it to the next level. Here's a few suggestion features.

1. More modulation destinations. Please add the ability to modulate the FX panel. The synth is lively but the FX are just static. Let us mod the FX as well to really get things moving.
2. More visual feedback. Above both ADSR is a static envelope picture that serves really no purpose. Maybe implementing an actual visualizer that updates to whatever knob is being tweaked would be a better option. Similar to Fxpansion Strobe 2 synth.
3. More onboard FX. There's many FX that could work here but I'm going to suggest at least an on board distortion unit and compressor.
4. More FX slot flexibility. Being able to change the order of FX is great but being able to do things such as send individual oscillators to individual FX would be cool or even the ability to use two of the same FX back to back like two EQ's in a row as opposed to just one of each FX would be nice.

5. Resizable GUI, the same for Padshop and HalionSonic.

6. Effects Mute button, similar to the nearly invisible but highly useful "lock" for the arpeggiator.

I would like to get a better volume ballance between onboard osc's and the sidechain input.
As off now, the input only go as hot as the source signal, while the onboard osc's go too 100++ dbfs.
Makes it annoying to blend the osc's with external input. It is doable. But fine tuning is not an option.

I spent about one day trying to get anything useful from Retrologue 2's side-chain input. No matter what kind of signal I sent to it, the results were really not useful or interesting. As you point out, the input signal is so attenuated that it's just not useful. I love the instrument, but this aspect of is disappointing. I may be "doable" but I've not found it to be useful and I'd certainly hoped for more and was surprised to see it really didn't perform as I expected it would.

Yes, they must have thought that the function would only be used solo and not include the onboard osc's.
Caus it is realy far off. We get alot of goodies with cubase. So im not gonna complain to much. Some wired bugs is to be expected. But I hope they have this sorted in their next bug fix.

Funny, but use of the oscillators and other parts of the instrument is what I thought the side-chain would be useful and interesting for. Overall, I really like the instrument. The arpeggiator is particularly strong and I like the drag and drop matrix routing. I think it's a great sounding synth over all, but the side-chain feature is either buggy and not working correctly, or just disappointing and not useful for me. While the promotions about this feature did influence my decision to update to Pro 9 it wasn't a major factor. Overall, Cubase is the best DAW I've ever had the pleasure of working with and learning.

Undo history, undo operation, like in Groove Agent 5.
