I’m a longtime user, but not a subscriber (I prefer to buy soundsets individually rather than as a subscription service). One thing I feel is severely lacking in the program is the ability to add our own new sounds to Syrinscape to create custom soundboards.
I have a lot of CDs of sound effects, and there are tons of public domain SFX available online that would be so great to use in a soundboard like Syrinscape. However, at the moment, currently the only option is to run both Syrinscape and another soundboard program. That’s not really useful.
From browsing the forum, I get the impression that subscribers are able to use the web interface to upload their own sound files to the cloud and use them in their own campaigns, which is great. But it’s a shame if that’s a feature only available to subscribers. I have every intention to continue to support Syrinscape by buying soundsets, but I don’t ever see myself subscribing, as I really dislike subscription-based software.
I’ve seen in other posts that 2020 is supposed to be the year of big updates to the desktop software. If that’s the case I’d like to say that one major killer feature Syrinscape is missing is the ability to add sounds and build custom soundsets in the desktop player, for non-subscription customers. I would be thrilled if that were a possible addition to the program this year.
