External sample editor

I wrote about this subject looong time ago, but I say this once more.
What do u think of possibilty to open your sample in for example wavelab and when finished editing there, renoise would automatically reload it to back. This way u have option to use some “heavy” editing possibilties of any modern audio editor.
Please, comments.

how do you propose to connect to wavelab to fetch sample and how to “know” when you are finished editing?

good idea (i like the handling of cooledit pro) … but why not an improved Renoise sample-editor?

what sonus writes sounds exactly like the way VSampler handles this, and it works quite well.
so i like it too :)

Windows clipboard!? :blink:

maybe when filesize/checksum is changed?

something like

  1. save file in original location (where has been loaded from)
  2. execute command line path of external editor (“C:\Program Files\Steinberg\WaveLab\wavlab.exe” for example) + path of the file
  3. check filesize and checksum every 5 sec if some “auto-update” button is on.
  4. reload the file if modified.

that’s how i imagine all that…

IMHO Not good. The user might want to do some saves and still continue working on the file (for example saving as backup points in case a hard edit doesn’t sound right).

that’s why i mentioned about “auto-update” button which should control reloading.

Soundforge, Cool Edit etc… they all have windows clipboard. I think its a ‘must have’. I dont think that many ppl know you can do this. It’s a very powerful tool to just copy/paste samples or selected part of sample between sampleditors. Is it really that hard to make a windows clipboard in renoise? :)

cheers

I would also suggest going for the windows-clipboard. this leaves the most freedom in editing samples.
