Have some questions regarding instruments tags:

- how to access it? Minimal example please....

- are there space limitations?

- will it interfere with other tools, like danoises?

- it is surely saved with the song?

Thanks

Ok there are comments per instruments? Danoise, do you use it just like the song comment? Couldn't find a hint for the instrument tags in the song API doc....

Tags were a very short-lived thing (arrived in 3.0, gone in 3.1). 

But comments are not going anywhere  :)

 

If you are referring to my "instrument comments" tool, I also retired that one since 3.1 has a proper instrument comments panel.

Where can I find that panel?

Ok, found it now. Seems to be super slow if the text size is large. Also does not display the whole text. Much slower than this http://forum.renoise...omments-editor/

 

Hm, since those comments are used for annotations in that renoise instruments browser , it seems to be not the right place to store tool data...?

That tool is using the API to set the text, plain and simple. So I'm not sure what you mean by super slow. 

 

You have to be careful - avoid modifying values in the array, one by one. Instead, prepare and replace the entire array in one go?

Set a super long text using toblerpone's tool. Then open that comment in the Renoise native comment editor. It will lag for over a second until open. In toblerpone's tool, no delay at all. String length doesn't matter.

 

That gui automation tool writes now the data into song comment. I originally wanted to use the instruments comments, but now it seems to be a bad idea, since that data would be maybe visible in the instrument's patch list

Ah, OK now I get it. Thanks!

 

Re visibility, they can be viewed through the instrument browser and, obviously, the song comments panel itself.
