Major Things not in this version at the Moment but coming…
below is a rough list of old things we know you be missing and just want to assure that they are coming still along with many other things still not in the BETA 

  • Importing (Use your old Databases for now for testing)
  • Transferring (and all related functions)
  • Drag and Drop Bar.  (but you can Drag Referenced from the Results List fine already)
  • All Metadata Editing features
  • Spot to Track and all related features
  • Burn In and Text File Import Panels
  • Plugin Rack on Process Panel  (We need to make a VST3 Library still and will take time)
  • CloudPacks and all HTTP playback
  • Collections
  • Screen Reader Support for Blind users
  • Editing Metadata directly on the Results List also now.
  • Eight User definable Database [fields]
  • A BaseHead Connect VST/AU/AAX plugin to replace ReWire.

Dropped Technology in this Version
below is some tech we dropped.  So don’t expect it to return ever.  😉

  • ReWire: We will have our own BaseHead Direct Connect Plugin to replace this horrible old tech.
  • CodeMeter (We will make our own pool-able licenses system that is lighter and more modern)
  • VST2 (To be Replaced with VST3 in early 2023)
  • The Browser Page will no longer be  independent of the Database and will be Database driven also now. Similar to how MediaBay does it.  You will still be able to browse folders but it will be more powerful and require the files to be in the Database first. 
  • BaseHead Server (cubeSQL): We will also make our own in house integrated version that works seamlessly and is more WFHer friendly then the current way. 
  • LimeLM (Was used for Trial Mode and we will make our own to replace it)

Other Road Mapped Features planned for First Release
These are NOT guaranteed as we have already bitten off more then we can chew ATM.

  • Groups:  Ability to assign records to Multiple ‘Groups’
  • Split files flagged in Database while Importing and will be grouped in Results List with an expander arrow
  • Taglist: We will store as parameter object to allow processing during transfers instead of when tagging.
  • Ability to make changes to the Database and write to files later.
  • Imports/Browser: Explode Imports to drill down them OR just auto-select in the new Browser Node.
  • Faders levels on the QAP mixer. 
  • License Pooling via our new system as we are ditching CodeMeter in this version.
  • Markers: Searchable Marker Tags in the Database
  • Pop-out larger timecode window with Spectrum Analyzer
  • Midi Triggering and Midi CC and maybe OSC Support
  • Active Directory Support

Not seeing something you hoped for?

If might still be coming still as the above is not complete, but if it was never put in the RequestBase OR maybe it never got upvoted much is another reason.  All Feature Requests should start in the RequestBase.
