Hi. I am happy to present something bigger than the posts recently. But they were much and I don´t know if you are interested in this last thing that complets my big wishes.
To Ross: It´s improving live patching and make Mulchs own plugins more important
(especially the signal generators)
To all: The main idea is that the contraptions communicate among themselves, so you haven´t to make all these setting you have to do now.
If you are interested in, write a short reply, I mean particulary Ross.

Dear Ross,I read your post (#8; new here- beginner questions; support help and ideas):" There is no option for this. The design philosophy of AudioMulch is generally to provide one way of doing things and to not provide a bazillion options to configure things to work in different ways. "
I think I understand you: Too much input of things to program for you / for us to learn,and a little musical output.
But subtile connections can compensate the limits of the automated container.
Especially the posibility to build up a system of musical phrases like in "Live" could be exciting to you.
That´s neither possible with the normal automation nor with the container alone.

The most of my posts in the past could be unnecessary, but there is no feedback?!

No offense meant but I don't understand what you are talking about most of the time. I'd love to share some thoughts on your ideas but you need to elaborate a bit more.

When you say: "To all: The main idea is that the contraptions communicate among themselves, so you haven´t to make all these setting you have to do now."

What do you mean exactly?

Thanks for Your feedback, paradiddle!
It´s a new sort of Automation. But it uses the snapshots, so it´s repeating and you have only to do once your settings.
It´s working within the signal generators in patterns like those for key, gate and tie. I said "the contraptions communicate among themselves" ,because with this patterns,_ effects and other contraptions are reached and influenced (e.g. the panning of one note).
The sense is, that one automation-curl (the audios mangling) is bound directly to its note within a snapshot of the signal.-generator. Therfore You can programm e.g. a bassline-snapshot, and the pan comes with you.

I don´t know, if You understand all of it, what I´ve written. You know the container idea (Your Post), but it´s not overlapping. I´m happy about my idea, but with no one, who is interested in, it´s sad. Thank You.

P.S. There are many beautyful details, but: say Your opinion.

I try it once more: It´s not an exchangeable automation again.

-Metasurface: change your settings live
-upper chord scale: Change the mood of your music, through the key (live possible)
-normal automation: For changes along your track
-snapshot automation: define radical basic changes
-constant value automation: vary your snapshots (small variations along the track OR in one musical phrase)
-automateable container: define changes in one musical phrase; LFOs/ Envelopes/ Automating Snapshots (live possible)
-subtle (subtile) connections: define the expression of one or more notes, or its surroundings (unlimited, complex LFOs/ Envelopes/FM(AM possible)/free logical connections), live changings possible

Here are some possibilities of subtile connections:
-pattern opens sidechain that does FM to one note; same pattern puts an Volume-envelope(attack/ release) over the sidechain through a gain-contraption.
-pattern trigger a recorder contraption, that plays its record once then
-Vibrato through special envelope on one note
-Digi-Grunge contraption exites (every) bassline-note;; increasing from the notes beginning to its end(attack).
-Para EQ pitches a testgen- contraption=noise (followes the notes of a bound bassline)
-Para EQ ducks the spectrum of the melody to make the connected basslines spectrum free(its notes are used)
-southpol = complex envelope;  (modified) sspat= complex LFO
through their connections (bassline trigger possible)
-Elektro-style sounds out of one bassline(a lot of envelopes/effects, a 8x8matrix-controlled by this bassline, every sound(1-8) one 10Harmonics)
-envelopes that use the tie
-chords(e.g.3 basslines, only one automated )
-pad and bassline bound(10 Harmonics rules the basslines root note; defined[ +/-] delay[the 10Harm.reaction is delayed/the bassline´s reaction is delayed])
- delay-feedback of drums- You choose only one punch this snapshot to be delayed
- logical connection: while the drums are getting louder and closer(More beats) the pad is getting more behind in the nasty reverb;means: Wet/ dry , one compressor(long release) adjust the value; no ruling signal generator-contraption (live drums possible)
 -every value OR envelope -> one pattern; can be combined with other patterns- then intersection
-one envelope over more notes possible
-Several notes get noisy; bassline to crossfader; testgen-pitched noise possible
-instead of bassline every time, arpeggiator Or drums are possible
