Mm mm I many think about midi import for long file and in my head I have a question: how many people used long midi import for big song? Because I think many users waiting this function for work with short midi files containing in drum module or another midi plugs. Maybe I have mistake but it’s not usefull for me because I can’t do make effective in my work.
I think that this can be modified to suit all cases effectively.
Personally I would have full midi import as a menu entry under the FIle menu called “Midi Import Song/with tempo” or something. (current appending behaviour moved here)
Drag and Drop onto the pattern would add MIDI where it is dropped. If it is a multi-track MIDI file then only allow it to be dragged between renoise tracks (yellow divider) where it would create new renoise tracks on mouse button release. If it is a single track MIDI file let it be dragged onto track as overwrite paste, or between tracks with yellow divider; again creating a new track.
@ taktik RE: Repeating patterns in the pattern sequencer. We already have a situation in renoise where the pattern sequence is automatically flattened; in the automation editor if we use the
line tool. I don`t see this as a problem here aswell, though maybe a dialog could be used to save confusion.
