New Feature: Item Library
30 July 2012
One of the most important features of Thousand Wires is its ability to let you see your projects in various ways. So, for example, if you’ve just finished your latest album and you’re about ready to hit the road on a tour, you’ll want to see what that would look like in terms of setup and equipment. Until now, you could start a new project, but you had to recreate everything, every time. Today, we released the latest feature, the Item Library.
What is the item library? I’m glad you asked.
The item library is a collection of every piece of equipment from every project you’ve built. When you open it, you’ll see everything in nice rows and columns. When you click an item, we’ll clone that piece of equipment and drop it onto your current project. So if you use any of the same equipment in multiple projects, it’s easy to get a new project up and going in minutes.
Because items are cloned, you don’t have to worry about the original item. That makes it useful in cases where you may have two items of the same type with slightly different features. You can clone the first one, and edit the second in this project only.
This is only phase one of the item library, but we wanted to release it in stages to help speed up the process of creating new projects. Enjoy!
