Would this be cool if Waves did it?
Please excuse the horrible graphics, but you can see a general idea if you view it from a Maserati plugins perspective. Waves graphic artists are much better at building the GUI than I.
Note the concept of allowing you to feed it with two audio sources.
Some cool effects it could do would be that you could fade a song into another by automating tuning action from one audio source to another.
ADD Feature the ability to create presets that include “station” emulation, audio source, tuning, Gain, Locale, AM/FM, etc. and then blend between those presets
NOTE The Source 1 and Source 2 can be assigned separate settings per source, such as head unit station emulation, tuning (off-tuning), locale, etc. For example, let’s say you want a song to start as if it’s out in the country on an old vintage head unit in a classic car, emulating an old car’s radio with poor reception, but then, when you (automate) tune into a NYC station in the metro city area, the music kicks it up a notch.
Anyway, there’s an endless number of possibilities here. But this is a start. Thanks!
