I just purchased Renoise, because I’ve fallen madly in love with it after about 6 months of use.
One thing hit me, though: Is there a feature for audio quantisation? With waveforms, not MIDI data.
I saw a thread about it from 2003, but that’s all I could find.
Sorry if this has been posted before.
Also, if it’s totally out of the question, does anyone know of a Linux program that will do it? Maybe a LADSPA plugin?
Open source and/or freeware is not a must, but definitely preferred.
Thanks in advance.
Looking forward to my new membership here
Well, there’s still one possibility. Kinda what the tools mentioned do, but on a beat-level. Meaning that for example if a person records audio of some sloppy instrumentwork, the whole audio can be quantized per beat. The rubberband, as far as i know, does it just by fitting entire audio into the desired total length. The tool I think jampe might have meant (and btw. Would probably be totally scriptable on top of rubberband) takes the transients as guides and tries to figure out things from there, making multiple timestretchs on the audio.
That’s exactly what I mean, maybe I should have made that a little more clear.
What I’ve got is an acapella song. The tempo is inconsistent, so I want to make it match the beat in Renoise.
So like KMaki says, it’s “time stretching” I’m after, but on a beat level.
Do you know of a page somewhere that will teach me how to do the script?
I’ve been a programmer for about 8 years, so I won’t need a complete beginner’s guide.
The first stop you should make would be at the xrnx scripting mini-site.
What I’d do would be to study the current rubber band tool for renoise. Maybe try and contact the author for additional help on this. I’d also be using the inbuilt transient detection that works when slicing samples.
Having said all this, I’m afraid there was a fair amount of speculation on my post. Mainly because a)I’ve never used rubberband myself and b)Using inbuilt transient detection (with slices) the script would not be completely automatic. But maybe that’s not an issue, as It would actually make the script more flexible in use.
