In just playing with these (in Reaper actually, where it’s faffier to iterate over settings) it just struck me that there was no way I was going to get any results from the default settings. And the fact that settings are orders of magnitude away from useful settings (all the 1sample long defaults) actually further confuses things because on first blush it seems like those parameters are in bins, or standard deviations, or some other unit than samples.
Plus, as mentioned, I really appreciated the fact that parameters were chosen as relevant starts, rather than being blank canvases. I guess in generally I’m a big believer in the “in-context, musical examples and defaults” vs the “programmatic/didactic examples and defaults”.
Either way, there should be some consistency across the board in how defaults are set. I just hope it falls on the side of “immediately useful defaults”.
