Duty cycle macro

For square waves you have the concept of a_duty cycle_which changes the timbre.

It’d be nice if you could set up a macro in the Renoise instrument editor to control this.

As far as I can tell, you can’t currently assign the loop end point to a macro, but if you could, I think you should be able to compensate pitch and have a nice duty cycle control.

I imagine this should work not just for square waves, but for any short sample whose last half is 0.

It would be easier to move the whole loop i think, then you wouldn’t have to worry about the pitch. Draw a square, make the loop cover half the sample and then just move it side to side.

So, automatable loop start/end would be very nice. :slight_smile:
